The service-less iPhone will receive iMessages (and other notifications for other apps that register push notifications) while on Wi-Fi. You can remove the device from your iCloud account or unregister it from the iMessage and FaceTime services if you don't want this behavior.

Yes of course it receives your messages you send to yourself if someone connects the other iPhone to Wi-Fi or cellular network

Ok, so there's at least one solution: Establish a Wi-Fi connection using Settings > Wi-Fi (switch on, etc.). Log-in the iphone **using AppleID* when prompted. Disconnect cellular using Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data (switch to OFF). Switch iMessage on (Facetime, etc.) in Settings > Messages > iMessage. Switch cellular data on by reversing step 3. ...

I had a similar issue where Messages on my Mac Mini had been sending and receiving texts and then suddenly stopped. Turns out I had to go to Settings -> Messages -> Send & Receive -> Use Your Apple ID for iMessage on my iPhone. After verifying my Apple ID password, it worked. Hope this helps!

Messages are always received in grey, regardless of if they are iMessages (from a phone number or email address) or text messages. But to get the messages sending from your number, not your email: Go to Settings Scroll down and tap "Messages" Scroll down and tap "Send & Receive" Make sure only your phone number is checked off in the "Start New ...

I don't have an iPhone myself, but because the account can be based on email address as well, I believe it in theory should be possible to keep using iMessage after removing your sim. However, I have experienced that my friends who have gone overseas and used a different sim have ended up having iMessage being connected to the new number. In other words, it ...

In the Preferences, sign out the account that you do not want to show up there anymore. Then change the pre-populated email with a random string and a random password. Sign in fails and now your original account is replaced with this one. Yes, you may have to follow mluisbrown's solution if you do not want any entry at all. But if you just want to not show ...

Yes, I expect that you will. If a message cannot be sent as an iMessage (blue) for any reason - e.g. the recipient does not have an iMessage capable device, they have turned iMessage off, or you do not have a data connection over which to send it, it will go as an SMS or MMS message instead (green). If the message is entirely plain text it should be sent ...

This is a commmon problem with Hackintosh'ed computers. Is the computer you are using with OSX genuine? Wether it is a real Mac device or not, the steps to fix this should be very similar. Here is a very long thread describing each step to fix this in great detail. To start off, I would make sure that your Apple ID is verified. You can check the 'Verified' ...

In my experience, iMessage syncing is not reliable but it does work most of the time. As a result, it's difficult to ascertain a definitive answer. The intended behavior is as you described it and there should be no gap in Mac message history. However, for me, it doesn't sync 100% of messages all of the time. It does sync most of the time. The other thing ...

Holding down "Shift" + "Option" (Left side - not right, it doesn't work on that side for me) will create spacing between paragraphs without sending the msg Hope this helps

If there was a problem with your iCloud account, and it was requesting your password, no, they shouldn't be able to read your messages. However, to be sure, I would check with the current owner. Always follow this guide before giving away your Mac.

Press the Home button twice. This will bring up recently used apps. Find the Message app and swipe up. This will force close the app. Hold down the Power button until the power-slider appears, but don't turn the device off. Instead, while that power-slider is showing, hold down the Home button until your home screen re-appears. Hold down the Home and Power ...

Unless you want to keep the data on the phone, just go into Settings --> General --> Erase all Content and Settings. This will reset the phone to how it was when you purchased it (it will keep the iOS version it had when you reset it, however).

As far as I know, your old data does not sync between devices, only new messages from the point which the device was setup. That being said, with each iOS device you have, you may have to just disable syncing or use different iMessage addresses. Do this from the iOS device: Go to Settings Select Messages Select "Send and receive" Select which account ...

Your girlfriend's Account preferences have all her messages going to her iPad. On her phone, she should go to Settings -> Messages -> Send and Receive and make sure that all the addresses under "You can be reached by " are checked.

It's because iMessage only works through Apple devices; not other companies text messaging

Actually, you can send SMS from your iPad to anyone, just like your iPhone can text non-iPhone users. It's a complicated multistep process to set it up, but here goes: First, make sure you're signed into iMessage on your iPad in Settings > Messages > iMessage. Jump over to your iPhone and confirm you're signed into iMessage and iCloud with the same account ...

Settings > Messages > Send & Receive... You can add multiple email addresses there. Also Settings > Messages > Text Message forwarding will allow you to send SMS to another device [I've not tested to an iPad but that's where I sent txts to my Mac]
