    show up as being from my email address, not from his phone...? I don't think he updated to iOS5, and he's using an iPhone 4. I checked every possible contact location on my phone, computer, google and cloud to be sure only his "find my iphone" came up for that address....so why is his text to me showing up as my email address as the contact?!

    Is it your email address when you txt him? Or his when he txts you?

    Also sounds like he must be on 5.0 I had the same problem but it was due to my 4s not being activated right after the restore (i stupidly forgot to activate before leaving my house) but this also happened on my 4 after the upgrade to 5.0 two reboots fixed the problem for me not really sure what caused it but after the first reboot all my contacts were gone after the second everything was normal

    settings/messages, he must have your email (or your apple id) in it. And i'm guessing he is using iOS 5.

    I deleted all signs of appleID in the iMessage.

    If he is synching iMessage between his iPhone and an iPad, iMessage will require an email address as the Caller ID.

    Also. Try turning off iCloud and or putting the phone into airplane mode. Then make all of those changes to imessage and then make a backup while still in airplane mode. The. Turn it all back on. I cloud was actually putting all the wrong settings right back on to my phone for a while at first.

    He doesn't have an iPad, though his mom and I might get him one for xmas. This was just on the phone and deleting the option for an email address eliminated it.
