    Hello all and thanks in advance for some "help for dummies" type answers to this as I've looked and seen lots of clues but not simple enough for me to carry out a solution.

    I have two iPhones each with a sim from two different countries I spend my time in. I only have one Apple ID.

    Is there a way I can receive both number's iMessages one iPhone so I don't have to carry both around constantly?

    I.e. I still receive my home country phone number's iMessages when I'm on my other country iPhone and can reply etc. as if I were still on my home country phone?

    Thank you!

    Go to settings > messages > send and receive. Tap on "use your Apple ID for iMessage" and sign in with the same Apple ID on both devices. If you are already signed in, make doubly sure it's the same Apple ID.

    Then, in this same Send & Receive section, make sure that under the "you can be reached by iMessage at..." Section, both devices have all the emails and phone numbers checked.

    Then you should be all set.

    I think you choose the Apple ID email address as the default iMessage address on both devices..

    Settings > messages > send&receive.
