Hello Sir/Madam. Thank you very much for giving us an opportunity to help you. I am Jins here to assist you. You need to disable Text Message Forwarding:

  1. On your iPhone, open the Settings app, then tap on Messages, then Text Message Forwarding.
  2. Tap on the on/off button across from your Mac's name to disable.

Regards
Jins

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
