How to Switch Off iMessage With or Without Your iPhone

deregister iMessage
For a while now, Apple has dealt with unhappy users who complained about not receiving text messages when they switched to a different device. It turns out that when an individual changes his phone, the text messages being sent to his number were being treated by Apple as an iMessage. So instead of the text message getting delivered to the user's new device, they end up getting lost.

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.
It's a really easy procedure that you can do on your own without any trouble. Once you've turned off iMessage on your device, you no longer have to worry about text messages being lost forever.

  1. New solution, but old news. You used to log into your AppleID account and delete the previous iPhone, which works. This was in the Apple Knowledge base more than one year ago.

  2. if all else fails, including you no longer have the old iphone and you did not turn off imessages on the old iphone, then what do you do? what do you do???

    well, after all the complaining by former iphone users who are now on android, and the lawsuits that were filed, it took years for apple to finally allow their former iphone users to cut the imessages umbellical cord. go to this link, which includes the instructions that say to go into the iphone to flip the settings to turn off imessages, but also this link lets you input your phone number to finally deregister your phone number to yank it away from the clutches of apple's imessages.


    1. "then what do you do? what do you do???"
      You used to log into your AppleID account and delete the previous iPhone, which has worked for more than a year.
      If any filed a lawsuit, they were just too dumb to read, or found a greedy lawyer.

  3. I sure hope Donald Trump turns off the internet soon!
