    [check] iOS8
    [check] Yosemite Public Beta 3
    [check] Same wifi network
    [check] Same wifi network, double checked
    [check] Yosemite firewall off, is findable

    however, called myself a few times w. landline, did some SMS texting, not working!

    I believe it's not my router, because all my devices can talk to/play the AppleTV.. any suggestions/help?!

    Edit: other forms of continuity work, I see the "safari" icon in my iOS lock screen as i write this, and I see Yosemite has a "messages" icon left of the dock when I'm sending a SMS on iOS, however when I click the left-of-dock message icon, just get an error that the recipient "doesn't support iMessage". Airdrop works too.

    SMS is not coming until October. It appears to have been disabled by :apple:.

    oh, I thought that ppl w/ Yosetmie still got to beta this. I thought i saw beta demos. bummer - one feature I was REALLY wanting asap.

    also i found more answers to my questions searching Yosemite forums instead of ios8 http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1757410

    ----------

    w/ the above I was able to get phone calls to work, so that's partly awesome.

    however no sms, reading around seems dp4 they took it away! which would explain why i thought i saw it before? anyways. patience. for me.
