    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.

    It worked for me after fiddling with the Facetime and Apple ID settings.

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

    Same...

    ----------

    What did you do specifically? Just shut off facetime and put it back on?

    It worked for me for a while at the start, but I haven't been able to get it working lately. No idea why.

    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.

    You can use SMS relay only if you are on the 8.1 betas. It is also enabled in the current GM of Yosemite.

    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.
