    Hi,

     

    Remove the Apple ID from the iPhone in the Settings > Messages > Send and Receive spot.

    I already went to my settings and tried to remove my apple id and it said that it could not be removed. if that didn't work, what should I do next?

    Hi,

     

    I am not sure that I understand what you are saying.

     

    An iPhone, if active for Messages will have at least the iPhone's own number as an ID to use with iMessages and therefore the Apple ID is an additional ID and should be removable.

     

    I also had an issue where somehow the iPhone number had become Unchecked on my iPhone.

    I was still able to remove the Apple ID at this stage.

     

    If Messages is turned Off in the setting you don't have access to the Send and Receive List.

     

    Where are you trying to remove it from ?
