It doesn't have to do with your Number, it's a known Bug which happens to all iPhone Android switchers. It has to do with the way Apple has made its iMessage service. Thanks to an ongoing issue with the way Apple built its iMessage platform, users who switch away from an iPhone to an Android phone or any other cell phone are faced with a huge problem: once ...
