Exclamation iMessages shows my email address instead of phone number

Hi,

I upgraded to a iPhone 4S and I also got a new microsim. The upgrade process didnt go as smoothly and I had to get my data tariff re-added. I have my data working now but when I send a iMessage, it displays to the recipient as my email address instead of my phone number. I have removed my email address from my contact details, switched iMessages on and off, done a hard reset. But its still coming up as my email address.

Has anyone experienced this or know how to solve this? When I say my email address, its my apple ID i mean.


Thanks Guys

It's also possible for the receiver to enter your email address to your contact details, so he will only see your name then.
