If you're planning to ditch your iPhone for a Galaxy S5 or a Motorola X, don't forget to disable iMessage first on Apple's servers.
Adrienne Moore of San Jose, California filed a complaint alleging Apple of hijacking her messages. Moore switched her iPhone for an Android phone and noticed that she was no longer receiving text messages from her contacts.
The complaint, which is now seeking a class-action status, says that those who replace their Apple devices with non-Apple ones are being penalized and unable to obtain the full benefits of their wireless-service contracts.
Bloomberg was the first to report about the case.
In a statement sent to Re/code today, Apple admitted the issue that has plagued and angered many ex-Apple customers.
Apple now says that it has fixed a server-side iMessage bug which is causing the glitch. The company is also planning to issue an additional bug fix in a future software update.
“We recently fixed a server-side iMessage bug which was causing an issue for some users, and we have an additional bug fix in a future software update,” Apple wrote to Re/code.
