Attention iPhone users
Friday, Aug 8, 2014
* Some iPhone owners are telling me they’re having trouble sending me text messages. The texts, they say, are displaying an error message.
As I told you yesterday, I dumped my iPhone for a Samsung Galaxy S5, so I’ve left IOS for Android.
* I shut off iMessages on my iPhone and used a trick I found online to get out of the iMessage system. I had do that because iMessage texts from iPhones weren’t being sent to my Android phone. The fix worked on my end because I’m now receiving texts from some iPhone users. But your iPhone may still think I’m an IOS guy and that’s why you’re getting a failure message.
I think the solution is to click on the failed text and then hit “resend as text message.”
As I’m finding out, IOS does not make it easy to leave.
Any other suggestions in comments would be appreciated.
