How to Organize iMessage Texts

Most people prefer having their own way of organizing texts messages on their iPhones; they want an iPhone organizer that gives them more choices than the default iPhone system. iPhone users have been looking on how to put their messages in order because they don’t like how they appear

  • You can try message group- which help you to organize your conversations in a more readable manner. It will help in adding and managing custom groups in the messages app that will both include and exclude any conversation between you and another person.
  • Disable your Imessage-do this before switching phones because other iphone will continue delivering messages to your phone. Or if you are sending texts using normal message is nice to disable the Imessage
  • Take your phone number out of Icloud- to avoid texts coming in and mixing up.

To make sure this does not happen again make sure your iMessage is turned on and confirm your iCloud account and receiving addresses are correctly set in the “send and receive” part. Consider sending iMessage only to the email address of the iMessage recipient instead of their phone number so you can be guaranteed your iMessage has been sent. You can also reset your ID password so you may not get texts that have been saved in your iCloud to your iMessage.
