    In settings>imessage>send and receive, in the "can be reached at" section, I have 2 email addresses but my phone number is gray and doesn't seem active.

    In the "start new conversation from" section, I have my phone number checked.

    And my phone won't send out or receive messages.

    Help, please?

    On an iPhone - it's something that can't be de-selected so it looks to be inactive, but is really active.

    Ok, I had all the settings properly, a text message was delivered, but the photo took forever. I tried several times. Now sure enough, they're all showing up at once, lol. I think there may have been a glitch in the software, I just rebooted my phone, I'll see what happens.
    Thanks!

    It's supposed to be grayed out so you can't change it. Uncheck the email addresses. You don't need that unless you plan to iMessage with email.
