Do you keep iMessage turned on? I'm a techie, so I have switched between various Androids and iPhones throughout the years. I love experimenting to see what's new on the other side of the aisle, both in hardware and software. Whenever I have switched to an Android, I run into the problem of not having my texts come through in group messages (and even in certain direct one-on-one messages) when I turn off iMessage in Settings and even used the Deregister tool on Apple.com. Fast forward a few years: I fixed the problem and have made switching between both platforms easier. I keep iMessage and FaceTime turned off all the time. Whenever I've tested out an Android (most recently, the Galaxy S8), I am able to pop in my SIM and not worry about messages not coming through. However, now I'm realizing that no matter how much fun or pretty an Android initially looks, I'll always come back to iOS since I own multiple Macs, an Apple TV, and an Apple Watch. Should I turn iMessage and FaceTime back on? Is it worth it? Do you value your use out of it? Thanks! I really appreciate it!
