Then you need to turn off iMessage and just use texting like you would with any other phone.

Regardless if you data is on or off or iMessage is on or off, if a blackberry sends you a text message (sms, not BBM) then you will receive it

Make sure the people texting you are using the full ten digit number. Texts sent to a seven digit number will not go through.
