I have an old iphone 3GS that has been upgraded to IOS5 and I am letting my son use.  He is loving the iMessage, however there is one problem - the phone number that used to be associated with that 3GS is still associated with the iMessage settings and so whenever I iMessage my wife at that phone number (or anyone else for that matter), he also gets the message.

 

I have added in his email in the "You can be reached for messages at:" settings option, but I cannot delete the phone number.  Any idea how I can get the phone number removed from the iMessage settings?  I want him to be able to send / receive iMessages via his email address - not the phone number that belongs to my wife.

 

I did try removing the sim from the phone, but that didn't work.

 

Thanks


iPhone 3GS, iOS 5
