    Hi,

    I have recently switched from iphone4 to google nexus 5. Unfortunetly none of my friends can send me texts from their iphone anymore.

    Is there any solution for this?? I have turned off imessage, face time, signed out of iTunes, icloud on my iphone along with deregistering it online. But the texts still wont come through.

    And on my friends phone, the message still goes through (it does not show failed) so they would have no idea that I am not receiving the texts....

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    I've seen a few instances of this in the forums. If you've already shut off iMessage, the issue should correct itself soon. How long has this been happening?

    Are they sending the messages by SMS? They should be showing up if they are

    It comes from the fact (I think) that your phone number is still associated with iMessage on the iPhone. Other iPhone users sending you messages will automatically be re-directed to sending iMessages (only accepted on the iPhone) rather then SMS messages (accepted by all cellphones). Try restarting the iPhone.

    If it still doesn't work, navigate to your iPhone Settings > Messages and de-activate "iMessage".
