    Default Text messaging issues??

    I'm having some issues with text messageing and was wondering if anyone else is having the same problems.................Sometimes when I get text messages from someone in my contacts it comes up as their email address and not their name. Would anyone know whats going on? I am using iMessage.

    Thanks

    Do you have that email address associated with their contact in your address book?

    Yea I do but I also have lots of peoples emails associated with their names and it doesn't happen with everyone. I am wondering if this is on their end...........like the iMessage is not working for them? I'll just keep checking around.

    I think it is because of your friend's imessage send & receive preference. under 'setting'-'messages'-'send & recieve' -'start new conversations from', there are normally your apple ID and phone number, you friend might chose email as his/her identifier. You can try to start a new conversation with your another friend by setting so, then verify with them, what is shown on their end.
