    Running public beta 9.3.2 on my iPhone 6S+ and my iPad Pro. Before this version, when texting on my phone it automatically dinged on my IPP and vice versa. Not so anymore. Is there a setting I'm missing? I don't remember changing anything in settings to cause this. Don't' want to keep stopping things on my IPP to pick up my phone to reply to texts. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Are you signed in with the same Apple ID on both devices? Is iMessage enabled on both devices? Are these definitely iMessages and not regular text messages?

    Yes, yes and yes. I could have sworn that when I first set up my IPP, it had checked an option to start messages from my cell phone's number. That's no longer there. And yes, my IPP is cellular/wifi on the Verizon network.

    You've already tried signing out/in or turning iMessage on/off?

    I had an issue like this in the past, and back then, the problem was I unchecked (or deleted, I can't remember exactly) my email address under the "You can be reached by iMessage at" section on my iPhone. When I did that, for some reason my phone number wouldn't show up under the "Start new conversation from" section on my iPad. Once I had the email show on both devices, they synced and I was able to choose my phone number on the iPad again.
