Frerin Level 1 Level 1


I want to give my iPhone 3Gs to my mother. I do not want her to receive iMessages that were supposed to be send to me. Will it work to brake the link between iMessage me and the 3GS when I remove this telephone from my Support profile under: https://supportprofile.apple.com/MySupportProfile.do ?


Thanks for help in advance.

    No sure about support profile since I don't use it.

    What you can do to stop iMessage going to the iPhone is

    go to Settings > Messages > switch iMessage OFF and in Recieve At delete your Apple ID and Caller ID.

    Also in Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings.

    I have read that it is registered using my Telefonica number and furthermore the Device ID, which is unique. Your work around will prevent the delivery of any further iMessage to the phone? Great! I will test it.

    iMessage uses Apple ID and is registered with the Apple server.
