Turned out that it is a bug in iOS 8.4 public beta. I went to an Apple Store and the store representative that I talked with said that he had the exact same problem as I did. He also assured me that Apple is aware of the issue and they're working on a fix. Solution is to either wait for an iOS 8.4 update that fixes it or downgrade to iOS 8.3. If any of you ...

I'm not sure it can be done automatically, but... I'd just use the shortcut method. I use 'mynm' to trigger mine - it's not something I'm likely to ever use for another purpose. Same for myeml myphone myaddy etc Substitutions can even do emojis or multiple-line text with Return key - so long as you copy-paste them into the shortcut, not try to type them ...

Try toggling iMessage off and on again. I find that this fixes many iMessage problems especially after a system update.

You said you had to change your Apple ID email associated with your account. I just want to make sure you signed out of the old one and signed in with the new email address under "Settings > Messages > Send & Receive" on both devices. After you do this, uncheck Settings > Messages > iMessage, wait 15 minutes and check it again.

I'm assuming you are talking about the default Apple messaging app - iMessages. In iMessages, you (as a sender) can set your iMessage Read Receipt to ON/OFF. If it's set to ON on YOUR phone, when a person sends you an iMessage text and you read it, they will get a READ indicator on their phone. Conversely, if you send a text to a person who has set their ...

I'm not sure it will even attempt to distribute messages to all possible destinations once one has definitely received it. I had a similar issue last year when my phone would be out of range for iMessage for most of the day, but my Mac at home was happily picking them up - I didn't see any of them til I got home :( See How to tell Messages "I'm ...

SMS Handoff is not a feature on Mavericks, it needs Yosemite to function [Thanks to @tubedogg for the confirmation] To enable it you would start from your iPhone… Settings > Messages > Text Message Forwarding - then add your computer from the list by switching on. That will send a code to the computer, which you then enter on your phone to confirm the ...

On my iPhone I just unchecked the email address and then turned iMessage off then back on and it picked up my cell number versus the dang email address

No. The messages will only pull through from the point iMessage is turned on. Only in a situation where iMessage is turned on but the computer is unable to receive them (sleep, offline, etc) will it backload messages.

Go to messages (if you can't find it anywhere just hit command+space bar and search for messages). When messages opens up hit Messages again. It's a the top of the left of your screen next to the Apple logo. Hit preferences, and hit Accounts. You should see that you are signed in. Just hit your account and hit sign out. That should work.
