    If you were using iMessage on your old phone I believe you have to put your sim back in the old phone and turn off iMessage on that phone for this to stop.

    I believe you can just swap the sim cards again once you've done this.  I'm not an expert in this area but I had read this solution from one of the most experienced posters here.  Apple's knowledge base article on setting up a phone to give to someone else is here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4137, but you may need to do more than what I suggested earlier.
