I have a Macbook Pro and an iPhone5. At one point, I received messages in sync on both devices. Now, I get some messages on the Macbook and others only on the iPhone. What happened?


OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

Associate your mobile number with your Apple ID, if you haven't already done so.

Sign out of iMessage on the Mac:

Messages Preferences ▹ Accounts ▹ Sign out

and on the iPhone:

Settings Messages Send & Receive Apple ID ▹ Sign out

Then, on the phone, tap

Use Your Apple ID for iMessage

Sign back into iMessage on both devices and test. If there's no change, you may have to wait for a change in network conditions.
