    I'm having an issue with a group text with 2 iPhones and 1 Android. The Android user was previously an iPhone user. Every time I send a message out it defaults to an iMessage and the Android user can't see it. I can get around it by switching iMessages off temporarily and turning it back on. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    The android user will have to contact apple to have his phone number disassociated from imessages.
    Cause people with iphones that will try to text him will always have problems.

    Just takes time. Nothing to do with the carrier. I had an iphone and switched to android and it took a couple of days to start receiving sms. maybe change their setting in your phone book or make sure its not listed as an iphone?

    I have an iphone again.

    That has nothing to do with it if you list it as iphone, mobile, main or anything else.
    The system has that number associated with an iphone.

    That was just a suggestion, not a solution.

    I didnt have to tell my carrier anything and it worked fine

    Read my post again.
    I didn't say contact your carrier.
    I said contact Apple to disassociate that phone number from iMessage.
