With this issue, the public has sought charges and has placed Apple in a tight spot for its irresponsibility with iMessage. Meanwhile, those who had already switched from an iPhone to a different device now worried about their undelivered text messages. If you are among those who worry about the same thing, Apple now has introduced a way for users to opt out of their iMessage account; especially if you no longer have your iPhone with you. All it takes is a visit to the selfsolve.apple website, type in your phone number and you'll receive a confirmation code. After that, Apple assures that you no longer have to worry about your text messages being converted to iMessage.
On the other hand, if you still have your iPhone with you and you're still using it, you can deregister iMessage from your device. To do this, you will need to follow these steps:
- Transfer your SIM card to your iPhone.
- Go to Settings.
- Tap Messages.
- Turn iMessage off. Go back to Settings.
- Tap FaceTime.
- Turn FaceTime off. Exit Settings.
