iMessage sending from my email?

I recently switched to an iPhone 6 (from a 4s) and ever since, if I text someone else with an iPhone it generally pops up on their phone as my email address, not my cell phone number. Anyone know why and how to change it?

It has always been this way.  The iPhone can use its phone number for iMessage and FaceTime. But other idevices have to use their Apple ID. 

You can change to just your phone number in settings, iMessage, send and recieive.
