Whenever I send someone a text, I'm told that it shows that "[email protected]" is sending the text and not my phone number. And when someone responds to "[email protected]", I receive the message on my computer and Wi-Fi only iPad, but not my iPhone. Is there any way to only send and receive messages from a phone number?

I've done what it says on the forum to go to settings, messages, send and receive then it just says me emails and my number is just spinning it doesn't give me any other options.

  • How are you sending the text?

On your iPhone, turn iMessage off and back on and wait for activation.
