    Scenario:

    1) Had iPhone4
    2) Upgraded to Galaxy S 2, used same microsim with adapter
    3) Used GS2 for a while
    4) Sold iPhone4
    5) Updated, restored, wiped and activated iPhone4 using my microsim to prep for sale
    6) Put microsim back into GS2
    7) Now all my text messages i send to people using iPhones with iOS5 come in as an iMessage, even though it was sent from my GS2

    Explanation?

    Step 5. Because, The microsim was activated on the iPhone, since you know have it in the GS2, it's still programmed as if it were still in the iPhone. Maybe, reactivate it and prepped it for the GS2.

    That microsim is as confused as I am. It doesn't know if it's Black or White.

    If you were selling your iPhone 4, why activate it after wiping it? Shouldn't the buyer do that?
