New cell number mistakenly assigned AppleID

Just got a new phone ( not an iPhone) for my son.  If I txt him with iMessage on it goes to the wrong person.  If I turn iMessage off the txt goes to the right phone.   How do I remove the association between the new phone number and the incorrect AppleID?
