How can I add my phone number to iMessage on iPad?

I have set up iMessage on my iPhone and it works perfectly. Someone sends me an iMessage to my iPhone via my email or number, I will receive it.

But I don't seem to see an option in settings for iMessage to allow me to recieve at my number (if that makes sense).

I want to add my number to my iPad's iMessage settings so that if someone sends me an iMessage to my number, it is sent to all my devices with the same Apple ID. Any way I could do this?

Assuming that you're signed into iMessage on both devices with the same Apple ID, I'd try signing out of iMessage on the iPad, waiting a sec, and then signing back in.

Turn off iMessage and FaceTime on all of your iOS devices and wait a few minutes. Then turn them back on. The syncing of a phone number is done automatically since we only have the option to add another email address and not a phone number.

No problem. It's very handy being able to reply to messages sent to your iPhone on your iPad.

Yes. Activate the option to use the email address on the iphone. That will open up the ability to use the phone number on the ipad. It doesnt make any damn sense, but thats how they have it set up.
