No SMS after switching from iPhone

Are iPhone users unable to send you text messages after you've switched from an iPhone to a Firefox OS device? This is because text messages between iPhone users are not sent as regular text messages; instead, they are converted by Apple's servers into iMessages format before they are routed to your device.
The solution is easy - just switch off iMessages on your iPhone before you move your SIM card to your Firefox OS phone. Here's how to do it:
- Launch Settings on your iPhone.
- Scroll down and tap on Messages.
- At the top of the screen, turn iMessages to Off.
- That's it! Remove your SIM card from your iPhone, put it in your Firefox OS phone and enjoy.
