    I have a 4s and so does a friend. When I send him a text it is coming up with my email address instead of my contact name in his phone. I am on sprint and he is AT&T. Never had this problem and I don't even use the email address he sees.

    What can the issue be. He is the only person in his phone and mine that comes up this way. Really stumped

    Is it coming up as your iCloud e-mail address?

    Is it an iMessage or normal text message? Do you see a blue or green bubble?

    Sounds like an iMessage. Not possible for it to be a regular text.
    Settings -> Messages -> Receive At -> Caller ID -> Then select your number

    It's via iMessage. All my other contacts except my one friend it will come up as my number. It is the email I use for iCloud .

    It's just my one friend this is happening to

    Outgoing text message coming up with my email address on my friends phone?

    I have a friend that is having the same issue. She recently "Reset all Settings" and then started having this issue.

    She sent me a message from my contact on her iPhone and it came over as a text. I responded and she did not recieve my response. She sent a second message from her original text that she sent me and I received a seperate text message from her that was from her email account.

    Does anyone know what setting on her phone that has changed that is causing this to happen?
