I want to send a normal text message (green) on an iPhone 5. I want to quit using iMessage. Somehow the person in my contact list - is only contactable via iMessage. I have deactivated iMessage and FaceTime. Pls help how to convert contact from iMessage contact to "normal" contact.

Unless that person is using an iPad, an iPod Touch or a Mac, they should be able to receive SMS messages from you, but if they are using the aforementioned devices for texting then they are limited to iMessages unless they are connected to an iPhone via continuity.
