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 ...

Try to use one address (for example e-mail) on all your devises, it worked for me.

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), ...

You can only restore your data (messages are part of your data) by restoring from backup. That should work fine, assuming that the backup iOS version and the new phone iOS version are the same. If your data backup is from an earlier iOS revision than your new phone, all bets are off. Restoring your data from backup shouldn't introduce sync problems as the ...

Disable it in iMessages Prefs/Accounts... [Edit] Re-reading your question, you want to be able to send from iPhone & MacBook, but not have the MacBook show any conversations initiated from the phone? Never tried that one, but perhaps by disabling one or more of the account number/email address options further down the same page. I've always had ...

One way you will get the red contacts is if the iMessages account is not enabled. Go to iMessages's preferences. And make sure the enabled check box is ticked. You Will also get the red contacts if you are not signed in. If that is the case you will need to sign in to see the enable check box.

Launch iMessage, check Account info in Prefs. Sign out & back in again. Reboot. If you don't want iMessage on the desktop, then deactivate it with the first checkbox.

Turn iMessage on then turn it back off. It happened to me too. Apparently it thinks "who wouldn't want to use iMessage?" So it just pretends that it is on until you turn it on. It made me really mad for a few minutes.

Settings => Messages => Toggle off "iMessage". Works just fine (just tested it).

Yes, in iOS 8 you can set a limit to the time period of the messages. So, not an actual amount - like the 200 messages on your Android - but you can limit it through Settings > Messages > Keep Messages menu option where you'll see the following flavors: Forever 1 Year 30 Days Hope this helped.

With iOS 8, you can toggle iMessage off and on.

To keep old messages for posterity, I would perform a backup and then rename it so that it does not get overwritten. A quick google search will give plenty of instructions. As regards to restoring individual messages to your phone, I don't know that it's possible. There are certainly a number of non-free desktop apps for both PC/Mac to extract and view ...

In addition to unselecting Bonjour, which I agree was insufficient, I found that under Messages > Preferences, my Apple ID had been deselected. Once I re-selected it, I could then identify the phone numbers and email addresses I wanted to use with messaging. I suspect my original cause was my daughter's wanting me to turn off messaging for her email ...

Step 1: Ignore AppleCare Go to Apple Support More Products & Services > Apple ID > Other Apple ID Topics > Messages and Apple ID Your Customer Code is the most useful piece of information. This error is a result of the system assuming unauthorized access and locking down access to the service. Security is inconvenient.

Short Answer: No Longer Answer: Apple does not support and even don't know how to merge 2 Apple IDs/Account. But on your local iPhone you can hold all the Data if you only switch the iMessage ID afaik. iMessages are only hold for 14 Days in the Apple Account and are not/nerver longer stored at Apple (claims Apple) So moving iMessages to another account ...
