So today, I restored my phone to factory settings because i was having trouble with some stuff. The restore was successful except now my number isn't working with iMessage. It's greyed out and I can only use my email to send messages. It's really bothersome because iMessage is so much faster than texting.
Any fix?

You could try and check your settings. Settings/Messages/Send & Receive. Make sure you have your phone # selected. If that isn't it possible could be a setting in iTunes that is the same?

The phone number should be grey because it can't be removed, but you should still be able to tap it and put the checkmark next to it if you added an e-mail address to the list. I don't know if it will have a checkmark if it's the only item in the list.
