I had a similar problem when I changed SIM cards (though I also changed numbers). To fix the problem I suggest: Signing out of iCloud on your devices and then (starting with your phone) signing back into all of them. This seemed to update my iMessage associated number (which doesn't seem to apply to your situation since you didn't change numbers - so ...

I'd try going into Settings->Messages->Text Message Forwarding and then uncheck the switches by whatever is not receiving SMS messages and then check and then reauthenticate them individually, it should only take a couple of minutes.

Go to Settings->Messages->Send & Receive and then tap your phone number under "Start New Conversations From". Your phone number should not be greyed out here, you were probably just looking at the "You Can Be Reached By iMessage At" section.

There is no preference available to control that, but I wonder if you could override the event associated with the Enter key? The following command maps the Enter key to a menu item command. You'd just need to replace the command with "insert new line"... somehow. defaults write com.apple.iChat NSUserKeyEquivalents "{ 'New Message' = '\\U000a'; }" To undo ...

Yes, you can send a text message to your friend using your Amazon Fire, to their iPad, but only if they have an iPhone as well. If they do, then your message will either go SMS (Short Message Service), which is basically what you know as a text message, or MMS (Multimedia Message Service), which is what gets sent when you send a photo to a friend with a ...

No, you will have to have a device running either OSX or iOS for it to work, eg a MacBook, iMac, iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad to name a few. iMessage works on these platforms only. Other messages will either be sent as SMS or emails, depending on the client you are sending from and other unknown variables.

you can choose where your message will go: click on the little down arrow right to the recipient's name, and select the destination Message or iMessage (or even other chat system like jabber or bonjour).

Once you have revealed it, it stays. To remove it, you can go into the app switcher (double tap on HOME), and swipe the app away to force it to restart back in the default mode with a hidden search bar.

I do believe that is what Apple calls, "expected behavior." On my phone I only have a few threads in the messages list and the search box is always available. If I scroll up the search box behaves like it is part of the list, it scrolls up off the screen and hides.

First make sure the "Save history when conversations are closed" is checked in "Preferences-->General" to have an archive of conversations in the future. Second the Messages.app history and archives are saved to a couple locations in Yosemite. ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.iChat/Data/Library/Messages/ ~/Library/Messages/ Backup the files in the folder ...

You should also ask your remote person to do this: open Messages on the menu, make sure Video/Screen Sharing Enabled is checked Stupid and obvious, I know, but I just wasted an hour helping someone before I remembered that that option existed.

This assumes the storage in your user account is to blame, there could be other reasons. Log into the affected account. Ensure Messages.app is not running by quitting it from the Messages menu. Activate Finder, select Home from the Go menu, select Get Info from the File menu. Click the disclosure triangle next to Sharing & Permissions if it isn't ...

I took the liberty of furthering the above answer by Matthieu. I wrote a script that would automate the process by backing up all the user's messages, including images, audio files, and movies--storing each conversation into a text file by phone number. https://github.com/PeterKaminski09/baskup

In Apple world if you are using same Apple ID, your messages and information are shared across devices. That is the reason why you are seeing the messages sent by your family members on your macbook. I would advise you to create separate Apple ID for every individual or disable iMessage from their personal devices. So that the device that was disabled ...

You basically answered it yourself. Your iPhone is trying to send iMessages and can only deliver them when he has internet access (apparently he turned data roaming off). What you also can do is click on the message in the blue bubble, hold, and then select "sent as text measage". This will convert the iMessage to an SMS and it will appear in a green bubble. ...

I had the same issue. I also had two step verification switched on. When I restart my apple watch my iPhone asks for the iCloud password. What it really means is go to appleid.apple.com and log in and go password and security and generate an app specific password for "iMessage and FaceTimeā€. Put that in (including the dashes) when it asks for the iCloud ...
