    So I went through all the processes of deactivating imessage/facetime on my iphone and turned off icloud before I sold it. Also deregistered the phone through iTunes. All that fun stuff. Reset settings/erase everything.

    Thing is...people on iPhones, when texting me, still can imessage me. I told my close friends and family that they can hold down the bubble and "send it as text message" but will it start to default? or will they keep on having to do that??

    **outgoing messages are highlighted as imessage on the sender's iphone** i just don't receive them(mac, ipad, iphone)

    Do you have iMessage setup on another device? Either on a Mac or iPad?
