    Hi there,

    My mum just set up her iMessage stuff on her iOS5, but for whatever reason, it only "Receives At" her Apple ID email address (not her phone #). Is there a way to add this? Right now the only thing I see is a place to add another email address...

    Thanks in advanced. ;)

    Interesting because mine was using my cell number and all of the sudden today it is showing up in it's own folder under an email address vs the conversations that I had via phone number. Same person texting me - 2 separate conversations going now. I don't like that!

    I don't want it to use two separate boxes to get to the same person. It is now showing on my son's iPhone with the email address and not the cell #.

    I will be interested as to what is happening to other people today.

    Is the caller ID in the settings still set to the phone number as the default?
