Hello, 
I just switched from iPhone to Samsung and I am  having trouble receiving text messages from my iPhone friends. Any tips ?

Aside from suggesting that your friends get an Android device....

But seriously - What is the issue? There shouldn't be any problems with your less informed friends texting you unless you are using the same SIM card from your old iPhone & didn't deregister from iMessage - Have a look at the link below for more details 🐧

I remember reading somewhere that since you were on iPhone, you have to de-register your phone number from Apple. Apple thinks you're still using imessage, so it's not sending it as an sms.
Or your friends don't have a cell plan, they are just using imessage on wifi, thus no sms.
