    I don't seem to have the option of using my email address AND phone number to be associated with my iMessage for iPad mini 16gb wifi. Do I need to do a full restore?

    Return it immediately, it's clearly defective.

    It only works if you have an iPhone with the phone number connected to your Apple ID active. I restored my iphone the other day as new and before I signed in, I looked at my ipad and the phone number vanished. I could only use my email address until I activated the iPhone again.

    Did you fix the problem? I just got my iPad mini today. I'm not having that issues.

    Turn iMessage off then back on.

    I turned iMessage off and on multiple times and nothing happens other than needing to sign in with my apple id and verify. I will try to do a restore in a few hours.
