Go on your old phone and turn off iMessages

Yeah Paul is correct that you will need to deactivate your old device from Imessage.

Even then it may take a while for apple to correct this issue.

If you don't have the device anymore, try the below

go to: https://supportprofile.apple.com/MySu...
Log in with their Apple ID.
Click on “edit products”
Click on the “x” to the right of the product.
Click “unregister”
