Why do i not receive imessages on my ipad air?


iMore Question

Really frustrated. I have tried multiple solutions with no luck. Imessages work fine on my new iPhone 6 but they are not connecting with my ipad air.
For some reason I cannot get my phone number to appear next to "send and receive" on the ipad. All that appear are 3 email addresses. Any suggestions?

If you aren't receiving iMessages across all iOS devices
Go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive on each iOS device and make sure that you signed in with your Apple ID. You must use the same Apple ID on each device.
Go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive > You Can Be Reached By iMessage At and make sure that you selected each phone number and email address you want to use with iMessage.
If you linked a phone number to your Apple ID with iMessage and the phone number hasn't appeared, follow these steps.
Sign out of your Apple ID in Settings > Messages > Send & Receive and Settings > FaceTime on all devices.
If you're linking a phone number to an Apple ID, sign in to iMessage on your iPhone first. Then sign in to the rest of your device one by one with iMessage and FaceTime.
