I am running iOS 6 beta 3 on my device and read where some have tried different methods to try and get the whole unifying phone number and apple ID thing to receive iMessage on all devices as well as the other features that come along with it. I have Lion on my MBP and the beta iMessage for Mac. I read where someone tried turning iMessage completely off and logging out on all his devices and then logged back in one by one and got it to work. I tried this with no positive result. iMessage on my Mac still shows only coming from my Apple ID associated email address and not my phone number so those who receive it receive messages in a completely separate conversation. I am attributing my troubles to the fact that I am using the beta iMessage for Mac but I now have a interesting issue on my iPhone 4S. When I tried to reactivate iMessage on my iPhone it came back asked for my password, which I entered correctly, and it seems to be working, however it still says "waiting for activation." Also under "Send & Receive" it shows only my apple ID email address and when I tap on it, it shows both the email address and my phone number but there is only a check mark next to the email address and not my phone number and won't let me check mark the phone number as well. Which I find odd since under a similar menu in the FaceTime settings both are check marked. So does this mean my phone is only sending iMessages out using my Apple ID email address? Or is my number not checked marked since it is coming from my iPhone and it is already defaulted to send using the number and it just check marks the email address I want to use for iMessage? Again like I said before the only reasons I am puzzled by this is because under FaceTime settings both are check marked and it is still says "waiting on activation." Update: I used my Mom's iPhone and just deleted my contact and conversation out of her phone and tried sending a message to her phone from my phone and it showed it coming from my Apple ID email and not my phone number!
