    I have iOS 8 GM installed on my iPhone 4s and also have Yosemite installed.

    Continuity is partly working, if I receive a phone call Yosemite and my iPad (mini Renita) both ring, but SMS messages are not transferred. I can also make calls via my iPad and Yosemite!

    I was under the understanding that the iPhone 4s would not work at all with continuity?

    I'm running the GM on my 4s and get SMS on my MBP running public beta 2.

    Maybe they'll disable it in the final version of Yosemite for the 4s. The Apple website says it shouldn't have it.

    No the SMS stopped working for everyone. As far as I know, SMS stopped working yesterday, probably because they don't want to enable it for Macs till Yosemite is released. The Apple website is referring to Hanoff, not SMS relay which works on the iPad 2, iPad 3 and 4S.

    Can anyone confirm if iPads are still working with SMS relay?

    Apple website: "Continuity features are available on iPhone 5 or later, iPad (4th generation), iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad mini with Retina display, and iPod touch (5th generation)"

    Notice it doesn't say Handoff. Unless it works partially.

    Well every beta and the GM have had the ability, so I think it is a compatible feature. I think Apple meant full Continuity features.
