Randomly my iMessage on my computer system will deselect my phone number so that I can only recieve messages on my email. However, I want my phone number to be my default so that it will sync with my phone, which I am also having issues with. How can I prevent iMessage from deselecting my phone number?

    HI,

     

    Is the iPhone listing it's own Number as the Choice ID to use ?

     

    I tend to always use the email Apple ID on my Messages so I have not come across this.

    Yes, I started iMessage on my iPhone 4S so that is my main account. I only linked it with my e-mail when I upgraded to mountain lion on my macbook pro.

    Hi,

     

    Try putting the iPhone in Airplane mode for a few minutes and when it has started up again also Restart Messages on the Mac.
