My old phone (Moto) was stolen a couple of days ago. I bought a new SIM card, installed it in a fresh Android phone, have been using it no problem. HOWEVER, apparently a couple of my friends have been trying to text me and instead are having weird conversations with the new owner (aka theif) of the Moto phone. I know that if I had posession of the Moto phone, I could fix this problem by turning off the RCS chat settings in Google -- BUT THE THIEF HAS THE PHONE, and is not inclined to help with this (believe me, I've had my friends ask the person). It's bad, because the theif is getting random conversational info about me, and some people can't get ahold of me. How do I fix this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Try signing out of the device in your google account. Log in. Manage your google account. Scroll down your devices and Manage all devices. Sessions on Android phones find the Moto and click on the arrow. Click on sign out.
I don't know if that will work but maybe something to try.
