    I have a question
    say I have set that I can receive iMessage on both phone number and email
    and I set the Caller ID as email

    when someone is using iPhone iOS5 and they wanna send me a text to my phone number, the iOS should realize my number is linked with iMessage system so it's sent as an iMessage

    but when I reply, it will reply using my email, so that will create another thread in the list of messages

    so won't that break the conversation? i.e. the person has to look at one thread of what he/she sent me and another thread to see what I responded

    that sounds confusing, any solution?

    thanks all!

    It currently does't do this.

    Not at the moment.
