I just got an iphone 4S, and when I send iMessages, all my friends who also have iPhones are saying the messages are being sent from my Apple ID email address, and not my phone number.  How do I change that so they are getting my iMessages from my phone number instead?  Under settings, when I got to the Send and Receive option, it only lists my Apple ID email address there.  My phone number is not even listed there.  How do I add it ? PLEASE HELP!!!

If I hooked my boyfriends phone up to my macbook and put my music on his phone can he get my imessages? he claims he is reading all of my imessages but i dont know if he is lying or not? is that possible


Once IOS 5 comes out and the APP imessages is available will it only work through Apple devices which have IOS 5 or will it be able to work with other devices such as any cell phone, for simple texting conversations, just like an App called TEXTPLUS.

How can I stop iMessages from going to all of our devices

As many households do, we share the same AppleID so that we can share apps and information easily.  With iOS5, now we iMessage each other for free, BUT all other iMessages that we send to other iOS5 users are also blasted out to all other iOS5 devices.  My husband doesnt want to see all my texts to other people, but now there is NO WAY to send a normal text to other iOS5 users...it will only go out as an iMessage.  Is the only solution to get a separate AppleID for my husband and then buy all of our apps again for him?  That would be a huge pain, essentially requiring him to erase his iPhone and iPad and start over.  Or do I disable iMessages for him?  Is there any way to distinguish between different users within the same AppleID?

iMessages Won't Come Through on MacBook

I just upgraded to iphone 5 and CANNOT get my iMessage to send messages to my Macbook. As I cannot have my iphone out during work hours, I depend on this feature. It will not let me add a telephone number in my iMessages preferences. Neither will it allow me to login to activate iMessage on my iphone. It keeps saying that the password is wrong...but it isnt because I can login to my computer Apple ID just fine.  HOW can I get my phone number to connect so that I receive iMessages to my phone number ON MY MACBOOK?

How to create a new iMessages from the iPhone



ok i just setup my iPhone 4s, enabled successfully iMessage in the Messages setting and can even receive a

iMessage from the iPad of my Girlfriend and reply but ...


... when I try to start a new message I have no chance to enter an AppelID/Email.

If I type a name only phone numbers show up. If I try add one from my contacts, it doesnt show me any e-mail addresses, it shows again only phone numbers.

Even a manual input does not work, i am not allowed to enter the @ symbol. (I just shows the simple number keyboard without any special characters).

In general, if I enter any text in the To: field it shows the green box and if I send something, it send a SMS and  i get back a SMS from my provider saying he is not able to deliver the SMS. I even tried a trick by adding a shortcut for an e-mail under keyboards, but afterwards the To: line removed all to special characters and send an SMS again.


So at the moment I dont see a way to create a new iMessage in Messages.


Is something wrong in my setup?

Does somebody else has such a problem?

Is it a bug that it try to send SMS to a text phone number?

I am not receiving any alerts when I get iMessages or SMS

No ringtone/vibrate/banner/red alert dot on the icon, nothing. I dont have Do Not Disturb on, and all of my usual tone/vibrate settings are the same, but I only know Ive received a message if I open the app. I updated my iPhone a couple days ago, and that is when this started happening. Was there a bug in the software update?

Why aren't my iMessages shared anymore

Wrong year on incoming iMessages

Since updating to iOS 5, every incoming message on my iPhone that is an iMessage shows up as todays date but with the year 2042. My iPhones date and time are set correct because when I reply, the date stamp is correct. This is causing a bunch of messages to stay at the top of my messages list since 2042 is technically more recent. The year shows fine on incoming SMS messages.


Any way to fix this?

Track iMessages that have been deleted from a phone

I know I can go to my cell phone bill and see a phone number where messages were sent and received from on phones on my account whether they have been deleted or not.  How can we see the same information on iMessages?  I am trying to track a possible cheating spouse and the iMessage makes that very difficult with him deleting text messages.  Help! I do not want to be a fool!!!

Permanently deleting SMS and iMessages

Does anybody know how to COMPLETELY delete text conversations? My documents and data section takes up almost 4gb of space on my iPhone. I go into text messages and delete everything, sync with my computer, and restart my phone and they are all listed again, as if I never deleted them, and they are still taking up the space. This is very frusterating, as I would like to free up the space for other things on my phone. Ive read in other forums to turn off the wi-fi, but that did not work. Ive also read to delete what you want to delete and then sync it on your computer, but that does not seem to work, either. I think Ive tried everything. HELP!

Delete old text messages and iMessages in iOS 5.1

On my iPhone, I noticed that the Other file in iTunes had grown.  I also remember hearing that Other was your app data (like Angry Birds high scores), Text messages/iMessages, and so on.  I was wondering if it was possible to delete older Messages (pursay any messages older then a month ago) and not the newer ones.  Please let me know.  Thanks.
