Hey guys; I posted this in response to another iMessages issue but I think me and the OP were having different problems so I made my own post. In the picture (which I've blurred for privacy) you can see that there are two messages showing up. The top message is from my iPhone and the bottom one is from my iPad2. The thing is, the recipient (my brother) has both my gmail account which is my Apple ID and my phone number attached to the same contact card. So problem 1 is that my iPad is sending separate messages. Problem 2 is that with friends who don't have my email address in their phone books, my iPad sends them a message from my email. My email has my full name in it so it's pretty easy to ID me when they get it, but the point is they are getting separate messages from the same contact. Problem 3 - My iPad and Phone aren't fully syncing the messages. For example when I start a message on my iPad, the messages sync to my phone, but any iMessages that were NOT sent from my iPad (but were sent through iMessages) are not showing up on the iPad completely...I'm not really sure why.
