I switched from iphone to samsung and now I can't receive texts from anyone who has an iphone (because its sending as an imessage still). Is there a way to fix this?

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”
