    How does one setup iMessage so that texts that come on my iPhone also are received on my Mac? I just assumed it would work fine with little to no setup. However even though almost all of my friends have iPhones/iMessage, I only get two or so people's imessages sent to my Mac. Why is this? Do they have to add my email or something? That would just be a pain in the ass. Please let me know what I have to do! Thanks!

    Your phone receives messages to your email AND phone number. Your mac receives messages to your email address. So your mac will only get iMessages from people who have your email.
