    So I recently switched carriers and was given a temporary number for the first few hours until my number port completes , the issue that I have no with iMessage is that people are texting me at my usual number and I get the messages but when I reply it shows my temp number still?? and I cant deselect it once I enter iMessage via settings

    All are checked and #1 cant be deselect it

    1-it shows my temp number
    2-my Number
    3-the iCloud ID


    Ive tried resetting the phone, all netowrk settings and nothing seems to work

    any help?

    Have you tried changing your phone number in Settings > Phone >My number ?
    That worked for me when I ported my number

    I had to do some crazy intricate things to get my iMessage to work when I ported my number. I tried everything and I do mean EVERYHTHING, and believe it or not I had to actually go into the date and time settings and switch it off of automatic and then turn off and on imessage to get it to finally connect. It was nuts. I don't even remember where I went to find out that information but that's what it took for mine to kick in.

    No luck this is what shows up still , thinking maybe need to do a factory wipe again and insert a new simcard?

    Gee, I had no idea it could be this messy. :confused: It was pretty straight forward when I did it about a week ago
