iphone 4 with ios7 update
I have never used imessage before because it replies with my husbands email address (our apple ID) - I have always had it turned off, no problems.

I updated to ios7 the other day.

Here's what it does:

With imessage turned OFF....
- I can sms my husbands iphone in our house (preseumably it's using the wifi)
- I cannot sms anyone else who's out of the wifi zone
- cellular data is turned on, btw

With imessage turned ON...
- I can sms anyone... but it comes up with my husbands apple ID!!

basically I just want things the way they were, to sms anyone, with no imessage involved!

Thanks :messages:

Backup your device and restore. Afterwards, log out of your husband's AppleID and sign in on your own. Or, open up Settings.app > Messages > and scroll down to the bottom, and in the Send iMessages As portion, make sure it's your phone number rather than your husband's AppleID email.
