    Updated my laptop to 10.9.2 and suddenly I'm only getting maybe half of my messages on the laptop --- the phone gets them all. Pre-update, both my devices would get all messages synced correctly.

    I've checked the settings multiple times and reset both devices, as suggested in another thread. I'm missing something or ??? Its strange that it is allowing some messages (from one person in a 1-1 chat) through.

    @edit: just now, she sent a message that hit the phone fine and the little "..." came up on the laptop -- no message on the laptop though.

    Did you try deleting the old message thread and starting a new one??

    I have this issue every once in a while, also duplicate threads even tho it's the same contact. Just delete the old threads. Then start a new one.

    Thanks, I hadn't done that. Turns out it didn't help in this situation.

    The macbook is getting about one in five messages from said person. Phone still 100%. Since Apple considers a messaging program integral to the OS (really?) I can't just delete iMessage and reinstall. Looking like I'll have to do a clean OS install when I get a moment.
