Try doing this on the iPhone 3:

  1. Go to Settings / Messages / Receive at...
  2. Tap on your Apple ID and Log Out.

You should have reset your phone before passing it to someone else. I'd suggest asking your friend to reset your phone by going to:

Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings

This will erase all your personal content and settings from the device.
