When wiping a phone iMessage is turned off, iCloud unlinked, find my iPhone disabled and the iPhone wiped or the person who buys it will not be able to activate it.

Then everything will work properly.

Someone did a half-assed job.
Does that someone include Apple?

No. I'm saying that while it needs to be fixed and you can publicly shame Apple, you can't sue for monetary damages unless you can show monetary damages. What is a court supposed to do? Put Apple under a court order to fix a bug? Then every software company would be in court all the time as no software is perfect. How is a judge and jury supposed to assess monetary damages if that is the route she wants to go? What is the value of a lost text message? It can't be the cost to send it because the lost messages are those that go through Apple's free system vs SMS. Filing a lawsuit like this that claims 'unspecified damages' is pure ambulance chasing and is like suing a car manufacturer over an imperfect paint job on the inside of a door panel. It just clogs up the courts and the plaintiff should be charged court costs accordingly.

And then, you know, but a hyperlink in the period and make it black. That way you'll only see the reference while hovering your mouse over there.

Except that some people do this and they do have issues.

Which is why Apple pledges to fix longstanding iMessage bug in upcoming iOS update.

If there was nothing to fix, why would Apple pledge to fix nothing?

I switched to a Note 3 today from an iPhone 5.  I turned off iMessage in my Messages settings A WEEK AGO expecting to have issues with iMessage.  This morning before I went to the AT&T store I removed my phone number from my AppleID.  I went in and did the SIM swap, the rep confirmed I could receive SMS messages from his phone.  When I got home, I did a remote wipe of the device through iCloud/FindMyiPhone, restored iOS 7.1.2 to the phone, logged into my AppleID from a browser, and changed my AppleID password.  I am still having problems receiving text messages from contacts who have my phone number in their iPhones saved as an iMessage user, regardless of whether I've deactivated myself from the system.  I'm hoping the problem will sort itself out in the next week or so, but if it doesn't I've heard the only work around is to have iPhone users delete your contact from their phone, reboot their iPhone and create a new contact for your number.

For the people that insist this is only for stupid people who do not follow directions, I am starting to think certain carriers are more prone to the issue than others...
