    I think this is the right subforum for this.

    So I've been playing around with the iOS 6 GM and was wondering how the iMessage link to phone number feature works. When I receive an iMessage, it doesn't show up on my Mac. Should this work right now or do we have to wait for a Mountain Lion update?

    Yeah, i think there needs to be a mountain lion update since there's currently no way to associate a phone number with Messages on the Mac version.

    Mountain Lion 10.8.2 will bring the unification to Mac.

    It's been working perfectly for me since the first 10.8.2 beta, with io6 b4 and now GM.

    Discussed here with a screenshot of what it should look like when it works-
