I just got my Lumia 920 a day ago and so far I love the OS and the phone itself. Was an iPhone user since it's launch and decided it was time to try something new and exciting. The biggest issue I am having at the moment is with friends/contact who own iPhones and whom I used iMessage with. I can send them text messages from my Lumia but when they reply, it only appears on my iOS devices (iPhone,iPad). I have no issues whatsoever with any Android users so it seems to be some iMessage issue.
Anyone experiencing this and If so, any fixes?

This was happening to me too. I turned iMessage off on my iphone. I tested it with a friend and on his phone it didn't say "delivered" after I had turned it off. After a few minutes the texts he had sent to me, initially through imessage, came through on my 920.

same here. couldn't you just resintall iOS without the SIM card so it doesn't have all that information on the device. I'm gonna do that now cuz everyone I know has an Iphone and I get messages on my 5 and not my 920.

Put sim back in iphone, disable sending imessages with phone number, only email address then turn off imessages in settings. Restart phone. Take sim out.
Then do this:
- Tell them to go to: https://supportprofile.apple.com/MySupportProfile.do
- Log in with their Apple ID.
- Click on “edit products”
- Click on the “x” to the right of the product.
- Click “unregister”
Worked for me!
I still use imessages on my laptop to occasionally send messages to friends who have ipads/iphones. Just make sure to never let imessages authorise your phone number. Only log on with your email on other devices and remove your phone number :)
I figured this would happened so i started this process about a week before i got my lumia lol.
