    So before I lose anymore hair over this, I thought I'd reach out and hopefully have a "Duh" moment, and resolve this.

    Before the storm, I AM a developer so all is legit.

    I am updated on my iPhone 5S with Beta 4
    I am updated on my Retina Macbook pro with Beta 4
    I am on the same wifi network.
    The phone and the Mac are connected via BlueTooth.
    Handoff is enabled and seems to be working.
    FaceTime on the iPhone is set to make cellular calls. All good there.

    The issue is on the Mac. When I try to check the box to enable the Mac's FaceTime to make cellular calls, a window pops up saying I need to be logged into the same iCloud account to enable the feature. The problem is, I AM logged into the same account, everywhere. FaceTime on both devices, and iCloud on both devices. I tried deactivating on the Mac in iCloud and FaceTime, and re activating again, and it still does this to me. I can't figure this out.

    So, until I solve this, I can't use the Continuity feature.

    What am I missing? I'd appreciate any thoughts.

    Thanks!

    Well, I figured out PART of this...

    On both the iPhone and the Mac, I was signed in using my .me account. The accounts were made using .mac. I stayed logged into .me on the iPhone, and switched to .mac on the mac, for FaceTime and icloud, and now the cellular calls come through on the mac, and I can check that toggle in the FaceTime settings.

    BUT, SMS won't send. I can receive the green bubble friends, but it doesn't send from the Mac.

    Any suggestions on this one?
