That's fairly common if iMessage isn't disabled on the iPhone before switching to an android. It wouldn't explain someone else getting the messages though unless someone else in the family had an apple device that was receiving those iMessages.
    Nope his previous phone was a Samsung Convoy which is a flip phone he has never owned an iPhone . When he got the first Samsung smartphone he also got a new number because someone that had his previous number apparently owed lots of folks money and they were often calling trying to collect.

    Wonder if that new number had been in use at some point before and by someone with an iPhone. It really sounds like it was registered with Apple and iMessage. The changes probably eventually unregistered it. Certain device changes and stuff send some sort of deregistration to iMessage.
