iMessages not syncing across devices.

I've got iMessages enabled on my iPhone 5, iPad, and MBA. The issue is that for the past few days, I receive some messages on my iPad only, but not on my iPhone and MBA (this was working fine before). Other messages are received on all 3 devices. If I send a message through my iPad, it doesn't update the conversation threads on the iPhone or MBA. My MBA doesn't update any convos sent from my iPhone or iPad. Somehow the 3 devices have fallen out of love. I've tried restarting all the devices, toggled off/on iMessages in settings, and made sure that they are all sending from my cell phone number. How do I fix this?

Maybe its another New Years glitch? This only started a couple days ago. Anyone else having similar issues?

I've just got a new iMac and iMessage sync between that and my iPad is a bit hit and miss. Hopefully it will get sorted soon. The reason I moved from PC to mac was so my iPad and computer worked better together.

I have the same problem with an iPhone 4S, iPad Mini, and a MBA. It worked fine with the iPhone and MBA, until I added the iPad Mini into the mix. Now, every so often, I'll get a message on one device but not the others, or two of them but not the third. And with my luck, it always the one that's most out of arms reach lol

It's hard to repeat, so if anyone has a solution, fill us in. I've tried logging out and logging back in to the accounts on the devices, it works for awhile but then losses sync over time.

My messages sync between my iPad and iPhone but its definitely hit and miss as to whether both devices update instantaneously. Sometimes messages can take like 20 mins to come through on either device, whereas other times it'll come through on one or the other but not both.

I have these kinds of issues most days, but it's not a big problem.

Smile THE Solution

~I did it and have a fix! Itís extremely simple; My iPhone would NOT sync iMessage intuitively with my Mac. Itís now working perfectly. _ALL YOU HAVE TO DO_

Go to https://appleid.apple.com and make sure under phone numbers (Column on left side) you have your cell phone number filled out for all of the columns! Nothing will change other than the fact that iMessage will sync all messages from iPhone, under regular apple ID.

After you do that ^ CLOSE iMessage on your Mac, then reopen.

Let me know if this works for you, or if you need more assistance - skodaman08@gmail.com
Best of luck,
Taylor Skoda~

Okay, I don't know how, but that little edit made all the difference! All 3 devices get iMessages now, all synched up. Thank you!
