Bought my wife a new Samsung and moved her phone from Verizon to Republic. ALL worked great on the number porting except for text messages. I have tried forever to unregister iMessage for her old iPhone and have sat on the Apples support line with 5 different techs and nobody can figure out how to get the SMS messages to work on her Samsung at Republic. Yup I know there are directions for this but they don;t work for me. Apple support said I would have to call in and see if they can help me over the phone instead of chat. Another night wasted for such a stupid thing by Apple.
Did I say I hate Apple–they always make everything so hard.
