My S3 thinks it's an Iphone


My S3 thinks it's an Iphone

I recently switched from an Iphone to a Galaxy SIII. I restored my Iphone to factory settings and disassociated my phone number with my apple ID @ My entire family owns iphones and I haven't received a single text message from any of them. When they send the message it attempts to send as a Imessage.

Sprints resolution was to have them shut off their imessages but I can't tell everyone I know to shut off Imessages just so they can text me. Anyone else have this issue??
