Go to settings, messages, and turn off iMessage. Anyone you text who also uses an Apple device will receive your texts on their iMessage.  The word balloons are blue on iMessage, green if it's a text with a phone number.

Also Settings>Messages>Send & Receive will allow you to choose your phone number instead.
