    I have an iMac and an iPhone both running the most current operating systems for the respective device. Somehow, today my Mac "forgot" that my phone number was associated with my account. Eventually it remembered after signing in and out multiple times on both of my devices. However, all of my conversations on my iMac have turned into 'Bonjour" conversations. I can't use any of them. I have never used Bonjour at all. iMessage is working, and one person messaged me and that conversation is working. However, all of my other conversations are set as "Bonjour" and I cannot use them. What can I do?

    Note: iMessage is working perfectly on my iPhone.

    Thanks for the help!

    Mine did the same with Yahoo

    The other day, my MBA asked me to verify my iMessage password. It took several attempts to get it to log back in. Once I was logged back in, all of my conversations were "offline" and showed to be Yahoo Chats (which I don't use).

    I deleted all of them out. When my wife messaged me later that day, our entire conversation thread showed back up on my MBA.

    Seems to have worked it out since then, as several other people have messaged me and our conversations have shown back up.
