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: ?


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.

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