Solved iMessages Txt Msgs Coming From Email Address

Posted by Rose Bush on December 23rd, 2015

To correct the issue, on the iPhone, go to iMessages

To check if you have the problem yourself:

Go to settings > Messages > Send and Receive
Under “You can be reached by iMessage at”, if your phone number is not ticked, you have this problem.
To fix (this worked for me):

Go to Settings > Messages
Turn off iMessage
Go to Settings > Cellular
Turn off Cellular Data
Reboot phone
Turn Cellular Data and iMessage back on
Go to Settings > Messages > Send and Receive
Under “Start new conversations from”, tick your phone number
If you want to fail back to SMS messaging when iMessage is unavailable, make sure to enable Settings > Messages > Send as SMS. This was disabled by default on my fresh iOS7, and can cause text messages to be mysteriously delayed.
