Question: How to change iMessage to sms permanently

Sooo my friend had an iPhone and we’ve texted off iMessage since I put his contact in. He recently switched to a phone that isn’t an iPhone. Is there a way to change just his contact to sms without turning off my iMessage? It gets a little annoying. Lol. Please help! :)

Answer:

Why don't you explain what the issue is? What is preventing you from texting your friend? Are you indicating that his number is still registered with iMessage? If so: Deregister and Turn Off iMessage - Apple Support


Cheers,

Hi Gail!

The issue I’m having is that my iPhone is still registering his number as a iMessage contact even though he no longer has an iPhone. I’m trying to figure out if there is a way to update his contact without turning off my iMessages completely.

Thanks!

it might take a few hours for some Apple devices to recognize that you're not using iMessage when they send you a message.
