How to trun off iMessages on iPhone before switch to a new Samsung phone?

Problem about switching iMessags from old iPhone to Samsung Galaxy:
“I had the same problem switching imessages from iphone 5 to galaxy s6. When I originally made the switch I put my old phone number on my new galaxy and switched the iphone to a new phone # so I didn't have the problem. The problem occurred when I switched back to my iphone and then switched again to the galaxy. Confusing, I know! Anyhoo, I think the problem is when the phone number is attached to the sim card! After I reswitched back to my galaxy, my phone # was still embedded on my iphone 5 and I could not uncheck it. I have several lines so I changed my iphone to an unused # and it solved the problem. And I dont want to be charged the data fee so I just switched the line back to a basic phone. But switching my iphone to a different number, even for a min, seems to solve the problem. That leaves me to believe it is because the phone number i am using is attached to the sim card. I only thought of this today and did not try removing the sim card? That may work too. Hope this helps some of you. I know its a little confusing. Bottom line, I like switching between the 2 phones on my main phone number, but I need to unattach my main phone number from my sim card to free it up from sending imessages to my phone number on my iphone.”--Ask by kerryfromperrysburg in
