This is caused by your “iMessage” still being active on your old iPhone.

    Note: Ensure your phone is connected to the internet (3G/4G or WiFi) so that the changes will sync with your Apple ID.
  • If you don’t have your iPhone any longer:
    1. Make sure you have your new phone with you.

    3. Enter your mobile number.
    4. Click ‘send code‘.
