    Hey all,

    Is anyone else having a problem with the Messages app on 10.8 not syncing with iOS7? My assumption is that upgrading to Mavericks might fix this but I'm not ready to do that quite yet.

    Surprised noone has answered you ... I am having trouble with iOS 7 and iMessage. I sent out a text and if someone has iMessage I wouldn't get the reply ... instead I will see it on my ipad or MacBook Pro the next day.

    I noticed that between every reboot on my phone iMessage will deactivate itself. You can see this if you manually reboot your phone and then go into the Settings app and look under Messages.

    I was having the same problem where I would get messages on my Mac and on my iPad, but not on my phone. Now that I make sure to look at see that iMessage is activated I don't seem to be having nearly the problems with syncing that I was before.

    Mine is doing the exact same thing. It's been working off and on, but now it's really off.

    This is all weird to me because my iMessage on Mac used to never work. As soon as I upgraded to iOS 7 tho its been working flawlessly. I've never had my iMessages sync between my phone, iPad, and mac this well before. And no I didn't mess with any settings, it just started happening. Hmm..

    I rebooted my phone and iMessage was still enabled, so I don't think it's that. However, my iOS6 friends are now seeing my iMessages as coming from my email address, not my name that's in their address book. I suspect it may have something to do with that but have no way to know.
