My brother has both an iPad and iPhone. We send Instant messages to each other on OS X Mountain Lion "Messages" - not iChat. It appears that which ever device he initially uses to send me a message is where my reply will appear. If I initiate the conversation, it seems to appear ONLY on his iPad. Is that the default "receiver"

    Hi navy001,


    Each device has a setting under messages that indicates where iMessages are recieved at. Set these all to the same AppleID (as the primary), and all devices should recieve all Messages. You can also add a second email address to the devices if you like.


    Make sure the AppleID is also set up in your Contacts for your brother.


    Hope this helps!
