    Is anyone else having a problem with their messages switching from iPhone to the one?

    For me, I can send texts to iPhone from my one but I receive texts on my old iPhone.

    Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

    You need to dissociate your phone number from I message. Prior to putting your SIM in the One, you should have turned off imessage from the iPhone settings and turned off that phone. This is a known glitch for users switching from iPhone to anything else.

    All you have to do is switch off imessage on the iPhone as long as you still got it.
    Not rocket science is it? It may take up to 24hrs before you receive texts on the one but usually straight away

    You can push the blue textballoon on the iPhone. A popup choice apears where you choose "send as textmessage". It is a known problem. So everybody who does the switch has the same problem.

    Of course, You may send many text messages from your 1+ phone, but you can't received imessage from other iphone users who sent you the I-messages, not regular text message. And you iphone still be able to receive the i-messages without simcard.

    Yep, contact Apple and ask them to remove your number from their system. That'd solve it for sure.

    here is the details on the cnet website. it may take 45 days.

    Method 1 could take upto 45 days
    There have been conflicting reports regarding how long it will take for Apple's servers to acknowledge that iMessage has been disabled. I am constantly switching between platforms and devices, and I had no issues when I made the jump from an iPhone to an Android device. Others, however, have claimed that it could take up to 45 days for Apple's servers to reorganize the switch.

    Method 2 could take upto 12 hours

    Wallen notes that the change "won't happen immediately." In his experience texts from iPhone users slowly began to trickle in on his Android device "over a 12-hour period." Even though others have found success using this method, Apple has said that performing it won't deregister your number from iMessage.

    What I have done is turn off iMessage on the iphone, then change my password. After a few days that usually works. Sometimes people still need to delete conversations on their phones before they can send messages.
