    i don't understand why you would not want to use your email address in iMessage.
    If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation

    That is what I am saying. iMessage was made specifically for the use of your Apple ID.

    Because if you use your phone number, it will show up as your name with contacts that may only have your phone # in their contact list. If they don't have your e-mail, using your apple ID will show up as the e-mail and not have your name attached. For instance my Apple ID is xrayeyes05@...., but many of my contacts wouldn't have a clue that is me!

    I have never had an issue with iMessage. I have it set up for my phone no + 2 email addresses.

    Go to settings >messages > receive at >caller Id.
    Have a look if your phone no or email address has a tick next to it.
