I believe I figured this out... I turned iMessage off and back on. My number was then able to be selected and my emails de-selected. Messaging now works on my apple watch too.

iMessages and SMS messages from when you were not signed in will not be shown now that you have signed in. Messages does not retroactively obtain messages. Now that you have signed in, new messages will be delivered correctly.

Press and hold the message to delete, a menu will pop-up with the options "Copy" and "More". Tap "More". The message you selected is marked with a checkmark on the left.

"As soon as you tap More, that bottom bar should be replaced by the trash & share buttons." If this doesn't appear, you can attempt pressing the home button twice to get to the task manager which will let you kill the Messages app, reopen the app, go to the message you want to nuke, press more and the trash button should now appear at the bottom ...

Assuming your talking about Windows and the other user has administrator rights: There are tools that may allow the Windows administrator account (which has access to all files on the computer) to view locally stored backups and extract them. This will only be possible if the data is actually on this computer, and not encrypted. If you are sure that is not ...

I had to fight with this recently to screen share with my mother so hopefully I can shed some light on some issues you may be having. Per Apples support page on Screen Sharing: You can share screens using AIM, Jabber, Google Talk, and Bonjour. You can’t share screens using iMessage or Yahoo!. That being said, you'll want to go to the preferences pane ...

This is possible in Yosemite: just click "Add Contact…" in the Details pane.

The answer provided by @Noldorin works for me: Messages on OS X doesn't allow "Recent" contacts to be deleted, but Messages on iOS does allow this. An oversight by Apple, but this is a fix nonetheless. To clarify, I looked at recent addresses on my iPhone/iMessage when starting a new conversation. There's an "i" symbol which allows your to see ...

To solve the first part of your question, check this out: On the iPhone, go to Settings -> Messages -> Text Message Forwarding. This option will only appear when a compatible iOS or Mac device connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Your iPad should be listed in the Text Message Forwarding setup window. Set the slider to the on position to enable ...

I had this same issue and was able to resolve it by extracting the data from a backup. I used the script (accessible via link) to accomplish this. Note that a Mac would be required - Also note, I am in no way affiliated with the source or content, just a user in the past. Run a phone backup via iTunes while connected to your computer In Finder, go to the ...

In case you dont want ...

If you change your Apple ID password, all instances where it was used should prompt you to update it before using it. So after changing your password, your iPhone iMessages won't be synced to your iPod. From the Apple Support page: The next time you use Apple features and services that require an Apple ID, you’ll be asked to sign in with your new Apple ...

If you are not connected on the same LAN segment (both computers on the same network) and you are going through a router, chances are the router's firewall is blocking the connection. What you have to do is open/forward the ports on the router Apple screenshare (remote desktop) uses to communicate. The ports are: TCP: 5900, 5988 UDP: 5900, 3283 Screen ...

It means the person you sent the message to has read it.

While the other answers are basically correct, you can use a third party app. Try Google hangouts, or Pinger, as well as others (search the appstore for "SMS" or "texting app"). These apps will assign a phone number so that you can send and receive SMS messages.

The iPod can only send iMessages, not SMS. iMessage is a service from Apple that only work on Apple devices. It is possible to send regular SMS from an iPod if you have an iPhone on the same Apple-ID and on the same Wi-Fi network. If you do not have an iPhone all messages is sent from your e-mail address not a phone number.

In order to be able to send a traditional text message, you need access to a mobile phone network (and a way of "paying" for the message-usually part of your PAYG sim contract etc). An iPad or iPod touch can send iMessages but will not be able to send a text unless it is linked to an iPhone with a valid mobile sim.

Sharing the appleId is the issue. The only way to solve the problem is to at the very least put the phones on different appleId's for iMessage. If you open the Settings app, you will discover that iCloud, iTunes and App Store, Messages(iMessage), Facetime, Game Center, and perhaps Mail, Contact and Calenders all can be configured to use separate ...

I just reset the Watch holding down both side buttons until the Apple Logo appeared and it worked fine. In my case the messages were not getting sent in iMessage, just as SMS. The reset fixed the issue.

Short of resetting or jail breaking your device, there's no fast way to do it. But, maybe you can use the Message History option under the Messages app setting to your advantage. Assuming you don't already have it set to 30 days, change Keep Messages and have iOS automatically get rid of a majority of your messages. Then, you can proceed to delete the ...

You can turn iMessage on and off on your device in Settings > Messages, but I wouldn't recommend it for what you are asking to do. The short answer is no, you cannot disable messages being sent to a device without turning iMessage off for that particular device.

Maybe you blocked the sender by mistake. To check if that is the case, you can go to Settings > Messages > Blocked. If your contact is there, you can tap Edit and unblock him. It could also be that you are filtering iMessages from people not on your contact list: In iOS 8.3 and later, you can filter out iMessages from people who aren't saved ...

If you are showing a conversation, go back to Messages. (Top Left on your screen) Then at the top right side you will see an icon to start a new message. See picture below. Apple Support has more help for you too. Hope this helps you.

iCloud does store copies of your iMessages with the backup of the iDevices. To delete them, you'd have to delete every iCloud-Backup that contains the message. As to my knowledge, there is no user-accessible copy of the iMessage stored apart from the backups.
