Works for me. Actually, as I have four devices in the room, there is a ridiculous amount of noise when I get a call or an SMS :)

One thing that seemed to make a difference for me was making sure that my Messages settings under Account were consistent. You can have different items checked there to indicate what Apple IDs and/or phone numbers are used. As I have several, I was not always consistent as to which ones I had chosen. Making them all consistent let me get SMS and phone calls working consistently.

Well, consistency being what it is, 'yes'. In my particular case, adding the phone number to my Macbook account allowed me to receive the authentication message when before it got nothing. I am speculating that being consistent may help in other areas - but in that case I am making stuff up.

any one??

-Turn off WiFi calling if it is enabled.
-Make sure iPhone Cellular Calls is switched on(Check both devices)

iPhone: Settings---->Facetime---->iPhone Cellular Calls
Mac: Facetime---->Preferences---->Iphone Cellular Calls

-Make sure the Caller ID is set as your phone number

-Log out of iCloud on your Mac and your iPhone.
-Log back into iCloud on your devices.
-Restart devices
-Make sure you're connected to the same Wi-Fi Network.

all set up, does not help...

im getting crazy. even apple support didn't know what to do.

im sensing that there is either a bug or there is some setting outside facetime/icloud setting on the MBPr that stops it from functioning.cant see what that could be.

This is what worked for me....


On your iPhone, go to Settings > Messages > Text Message Forwarding, and turn on your Macbook
