    So I get texts from everybody, either iPhone or Android, on my MacBook Air, and my iPad using the iOS messages app. But I don't get texts from Android users on my iMac. Only iPhone messages show up. Ive tried signing out of iCloud and iMessage on my phone and the iMac but it doesnt help.

    This has been going on for a while, like a few months I think. I'm updated as of yesterday through the app store.

    Any help?

    Anyone? All my settings seem correct in messages preferences.

    Check your iOS device to make sure text forwarding for your iMac is enabled. If it is, try toggling off and back on.

    Agree with the above. Failing that, signing out and then back into your AppleID account usually fixes it (you can try on your computer first, and then your iPhone). Note that signing out may shut off certain things that will need to be re-enabled, like the text message relay, and possibly Photostream.

    Fixed it! I ended up doing a restore on the phone. Thanks for all the help

    Good. This ought to be a lot cleaner when Apple implements Messages in iCloud.
