Has anyone else experienced the issue of switching away from an iPhone and not having new messages deliver to your new device? My roommate broke his iPhone, on a whim purchasing an Android phone. For weeks he had trouble with group iMessages and simply not receiving messages whatsoever and the sender not knowing it was never delivered. At first I thought they were being delivered to his iPad, but after turning off iMessages the problem persisted. Part of the problem was he still showed as blue (iMessage) in my phone the entire time. Eventually he went back to the iPhone and the problem was forgotten.
Until I came upon this post
and the experience resurfaced. Long story short, it appears to be an issue on the sender's phone still thinking you have iMessage coupled with never signaling a failed delivery. Seems like this would be a huge issue, or at least a vocal one, from people switching away from the iPhone. Has anyone else experienced this?
