    Whenever I send messages from iMessage people are getting them from my e-mail address and not my phone number, even when sent from my phone.

    It looks as tho my phone number is not coming up on it anymore. If I go to settings on the iPhone, under iMessage it says "You can be reached by iMessage at" and it comes up with 3 e-mail addresses and my phone number is greyed out.

    Any idea how to fix?

    It seems iMessage hasn't activated under the phone number. Have you tried turning off iMessage and turning it back on? This should force it to reactivate. When you first flip it back on it should say 'Waiting for activation'.

    Make sure that your number is selected under "Start New Conversations From". Your number is greyed out because you can always be reached at that number.
