iMessage purgatory: (via Gruber)

I recently switched from an iPhone to Android, and discovered shortly thereafter that my phone number was still associated with iMessage, meaning that any time someone with an iPhone tried texting me, I’d receive nothing, and they’d get a “Delivered” receipt in their Messages app as though everything were working as expected.

Wow, who missed that test case?  The worst I can say about Apple, and I don't think it's a huge stretch to say this problem is related, is the implicit hubris.  "What happens when someone leaves iOS?" apparently didn't occur to a pretty serious team from the richest company in the US.
