    When I upgraded my iPhone to iOS 6 yesterday, I never got the prompt to unify my Apple ID and phone number. Now I have no idea how to do it, since there's nothing about it in Settings.

    There was no prompt that I could recall, however, my phone number is indeed associated with my devices after the iOS update. I noticed it when I configured iMessages & FaceTime on my iPad. If you go to Settings/Messages/Send & Receive, your phone number should be listed along with an Apple ID, if applicable..

    If it's not listed, which it wasn't for me, disable iMessage and FaceTime on all of the devices. Then reenable it on the iPhone. After its been verified, activate it again on the other devices. Number should show up as receive and send options. May only need to disable on the iPhone. Not sure, but that is what I did and it worked for me!

    Works perfectly. I even got a nice little prompt when I (re)activated on my iPad. Thanks for the help!
