    Not sure how to explain it other than what the thread title says. Friends will send me texts but I don't receive them on my iPhone. However, when I get home, they appear on my MBP in Messages.

    How can I fix this so that texts go to my iPhone? Or is it possible to have texts go to both my iPhone and my MBP?

    Have you confirmed that iMessage is enabled on your phone? Perhaps your phone isn't set up to receive messages at your email address but your MBP is and that's where they're sending them to?

    More info from Apple here:

    Like said above. They're not texts, they're imessages.
    Computers cant receive carriers texts messages.

    Sorry, I meant iMessages. Either way, they aren't always going to my iPhone. They sometimes go to my MBP or iPad instead.

    That's weird.
    So you dont receive them at all, not even late?
    You have internet access on your phone right?

    I don't receive them at all on my iPhone. I have internet access on my phone, but not at work (4G there).

    Weird.
    You should get them fine with carrier 4G data network.
    I'd try turning off imessage on the phone and then turning it back on.
    See if that makes any difference and then have someone send you some imessages to test it out.
