You need to wait for the iOS 8.1 update in order to be able to do SMS from your computer / iPad. It should be available for you now or tomorrow if you go to "settings -> general -> software update" EDIT: "settings -> messages -> text message forwarding" then select your device that you want to send from and enable it :)

After an hour long call with Apple, I was finally told to reset my default Keychain, and after a reboot, that worked. We diagnosed this as the issue because every time I rebooted, iCloud/FaceTime/Messages would ask for my password again, even though it had supposedly saved it. This also came right after I had just reset the default Keychain to solve not ...

In the morning, reactivating imessage, adding back the numbers, then disabling it removing the numbers, fixed it. I still have all my old messages.

You need to turn off iMessage on all the devices that have it on. If you have iMessage enabled on iPhone, iPad, and Mac, turning one off will not disable iMessage entirely. For example, if you enable iMessage on iPhone and Mac, but only turn off the one on iPhone, People can still send iMessage your phone number or email linked to your iMessage account on ...

I had the same problem. Looking at Settings > Messages > Send & Receive on both iPad and iPhone, my telephone number was listed under 'You can be reached by iMessage at' on both and was greyed out on the iPhone, but ticked on the iPad. The fix was to: (a) tap the telephone number on the Settings page of the iPad (Settings > Messages > Send & ...

Do they, somehow, use the same Apple ID? If so, the phone number has paired to the Apple ID, and every iMessage will notify the most active device (that is, the daughter in this case) before pinging the others. As some would say, it's not a bug. It's a feature. I have a few solutions for your brother in law: If the Apple ID belongs to the daughter You ...

During the 8.0.2 iOS uodate, for some unknown reason my iPhone 5 got sent into recovery mode and I was forced to restore it from a backup since nothing I tried could get it out of recovery mode. After restoring the phone, iMessage seemed to work once again allowing me to use the phone number as a means of communication and set it as the default. Maybe this ...

This seems to be related to Apple's attempt to make it so that if you are moving from iOS to Android other iOS users can still message you as your iMessage will be disabled. I managed to get a friend's phone to work by sending him an iMessage to his Apple ID. This seemed to fix it and now he can send/receive messages with others too.

You are using the same Apple ID or the same cellphone number to receive iMessages on both iPhones' iMessage clients. Doing so will lead to you receiving your own sent message, like I am: Here's a quick fix: Open Settings>Messages. Tap "Send & Receive". Tap "Add another Email". Type a diiferent email ID. It will now show a "Verifying..." ...

This is most probably happening because you are either using the same account on both devices or you have the same phone numbers or email addresses registered on each account.

iCloud makes multiple backups of your iOS devices over time, some of these backups are available to restore and some are not. Also you need to be clear on messages that have been deleted and messages that still exist, as both are still in the iCloud database. To delete all data you would need to wipe the iOS device (there are many options on the market), ...
