I'll provide a slightly more constructive answer. If you are having issues go into the settings and turn it off then back on. Then reset the device. Do this for both devices. Report back with any issues.

Would you suggest holding the home power button or just shutting down and putting it back on?

Same...

It worked for me after fiddling with the Facetime and Apple ID settings.
What did you do specifically? Just shut off facetime and put it back on?

Didn't enable anything, just pop up asked if I wanted to receive text messages. Said yes. Entered code on iPhone. Texted a mate who I know is a BB user. Reply arrived on both devices.

Does anyone get Messages handoff to work where your draft message actually gets handed off? For me it just brings up the conversation I'm looking at. Not that useful.
