Within messages and facetime on my Mac, I do not have my phone number listed as an option.  I have tried signing out everywhere and signing back in, but still no joy.

    Hi,

     

    Put the iPhone in Airplane Mode (or turn Messages Off)

    Sign Out on the Mac Version of Messages > iMessages account

     

    IN the Finder > Go Menu > Go to Folder and type ~/Library/Preferences

    In the Preferences folder find com.apple.imessage.bag.plist and com.apple.imservice.iMessage.plist

    Drag both to the Trash.

     

    These hold the Apple ID and th "Aliases" that account can use and the Server's "State" regarding the Login itself.

     

    Restart Messages and re-add the Apple ID.

    Open/Start Messages on the iPhone.

     

    You should now get a pop up message saying that the iPhone is unsing the Apple ID and iPhone Number.
