    A colleague has just replaced her iPhone with a Samsung S5 but our texts are still blue/grey along with the "delivered" and typing bubbles.

    She says she received a mesaage about deactivating iMessage but chose not to. Apparently all messages to iPhone/non-iPhone users are working fine.

    I'm just curious as to why this would be?

    Does she have another iOS device such as an iPad that is enabled for iMessage?

    As far as I know, there is no way she can be receiving iMessages on the S5. She should deactivate it so that she can send and receive green SMS texts with iPhone users.

    It's not possible. She's either replying from an iPad or Mac (thus using an email address not phone number) or she thinks she has a Samsung but she actually still has an iPhone.

    Yes, she has an iPad which she has used to send iMessages in the past.

    We've been texting this evening and she is using her Galaxy S5.

    I've told her to use the recently-released Apple page to deactivate iMessage but she isn't bothered...


    She's greener than she is cabbage looking...
