    So I've had a problem recently that just started occurring.
    I use iMessage a lot and just recently it started acting strange.

    Let me give you an example situation;

    > I text my girlfriend from my iPhone while at work.
    > She replies but for some reason it goes to my iPad and my iPad only.
    > So to me, it looks like she never replied.. until like 6 hours later when I get home to find she did reply.

    It works both ways too, if I text someone from my iPad while my phone is on charge or something, it might randomly go to my phone so it appears they didn't response. Anyone experience this/have a fix?

    Make sure both your iPhone and your iPad have the same Send & Receive settings in the Message settings.

    Try turning iMessage off / re-activate it on ALL devices that you have using iMessage, mine was doing this worked when I unregistered my iPhone, iPad and MacBook pro

    e-mails and phone #s are the same for receiving?
