iPhone imageIf you’re planning a switch from iPhone to Android, you may experience some issues with sending and receiving text messages. To avoid this speedbump, we have a couple tips that may work for you:
  1. If you used iMessage on your former iPhone, you can de-register iMessage to ensure incoming text messages are not sent via iMessage. This may take up to 4 hours before your text messaging works correctly.
  2. If you still have your iPhone, you can also put your SIM card back in the iPhone and turn off iMessage and FaceTime in Settings to prevent your text messages from being impacted during the switch to Android.
