    go to
    settings=>Messages=>Forward text message

    should appear on your Mac a code to pair the iPhone...

    On my MBA the code does not appear

    obviously you have to be on the same network and have the same apple ID on both Mac and iPhone

    There is a toggle switch to turn it on in Settings > Messages > Text Message Forwarding

    EDIT: Beaten to it

    I had a problem with it too, but in "Settings -> Messages" Theres blue-text link to manual. It's easy with it.

    I also had 3 listed. I think you may have performed clean installs without logging out of iMessage like me. Changing my Apple ID password got rid of the "ghost devices". Be warned that you won't be able to change back to your original password though.
