    So my friend asked for me help her iMessage was only sending from email not her number .. The number was there but grey out .. So I had her hard reset , reset network , iMessage off then on ... Still no go.

    Ok so background she was just out of the country for about a month and had iMessage turned off ..

    So I had her turn auto time zone off then iMessage off and on then auto back on and any combo I could think of.

    Now it shows her number and says activated and all looks normal ..
    She send me a message I get it as a iMessage ..
    But when I send her one it sends as a text ..my phone will not see her number as iMessage but her phone sees mine fine.

    Not sure what else it could be besides restoring and setting up new ..

    Any ideas ?

    Go to Settings-Messages-Send & Receive at and then make sure her phone number is listed and checked. For now, have her remove her Apple ID from the listing leaving only her number. Afterwards, have her reboot her iPhone. When the device boots up, send each other a message. It should work.
