    My son was using an iphone and is getting an android. He is temporarily using another android and he is saying he is not getting messages from some of his friends. I am assuming it is because I forgot to turn off imessage before I reset his phone.

    What do I need to do?

    Sometimes it just takes a while to actually get it out of their system. Give it time
