iMessage doesn't have the concept of a contact list like you might have had on Windows Live Messenger, AIM or Skype. It operates like traditional SMS. If someone has your number or email address, they can send you a message.

Settings>Messages>send and receive. Apple ID is on the top click it then log out. Then turn you iMessages on and select your phone number. Don't log back into your Apple ID until you know it worked. Worked for me. Then when I logged back in it had my phone number and email instead of just the email from before.

You will have to go to the other devices and remove your phone number and email address from iMessage. It's always better to check those devices carefully when making a switch to make sure you don't have other cross linking happening.

To make a larger emoji in an email message, I tried this work-around with my Mac. Copy and paste the desired emoji into Text Edit. Using (Command +) I enlarged it to the desired size, then captured it with Command, shift, 4 and pasted it into the email. Yeah, it's a pain, but it works.

Mark the number you want to message as a favorite and it will get precedence over other numbers. Also, look for the blue text to indicate iMessage when you see the various options for a specific contact (email or mobile) and you'll be sure to get their messaging account as opposed to sending it to the land line. Also, as you send more and more messages, ...

You're probably still signed into iMessage with your old iCloud account. Go to Settings->Messages->Send & Receive and then tap your Apple ID and tap Sign Out. Also uncheck your old Apple ID in the "You Can Be Reached By iMessage At" pane. Finally, sign back into iMessage with your new Apple ID where you signed out of your old Apple ID.

I've done it myself. The only way to erase all messages was one by one. The good part is that only new messages were synced!

If you are using the same number that you had on your iPhone and registered with iMessage, you need to remove it from the service to be able to receive normal SMS messages from iMessage users on your new, non-Apple phone. Please go to Deregister iMessage and follow the steps described on the page.

For consistency, it is advisable to have the same settings on all your devices. On iOS go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive and check: Under the "You can be reached by iMessage at", how many addresses are there and which are activated (whit a check to the left). Under "Start new conversations from" check to see if your phone number is selected, ...

In my experience, when I send a user an iMessage while that user is unable to receive one, my iPhone (or whatever device as long as it is sending through my phone) will switch to SMS. When the message is sent as an SMS it will still arrive even after the recipient is re-connected. Note: I haven't looked through docs - this is just what I have come to ...

I would get PhoneView and connect the device to a Mac (even if you have to borrow one or go to a library) and then save the message database to a more friendly format. I sadly cannot offer any PC options, but I'm sure someone else here will edit one in to this answer in place of my ignorance or offer their own software recommendation. Phone View is my ...

There may be a "bug" in IOS that hangs onto old messages or attachments even after a message or thread is deleted. The discussions you link to on macrumors.com seems to indicate that. That said, if I have a lot of space being taken up for no apparent reason I find the best way to fix it is as follows. Back up your phone, Apps and all to your computer ...

As far as I know you can only do that manually. There are few differences between a Text Message and an iMessage. The most obvious an iMessage has a blue colored background and a regular Text Message has it's background green The name of the contact/number you are sending to will turn blue or green respectively for iMessage and for a regular Text ...

What you are trying to do is send SMS messages from Messages on your Mac to people without iOS devices, correct? (Just fixed this for my wife this morning.)

On your iPhone: Go to Settings Messages then select Text Message Forwarding There you will see a list of devices that use your Apple ...
