Thanks for calrifying, Brocks. That section means that when users with iPhones are sending and receiving messages with you, you're actually using iMessage http://bit.ly/1iRsnwX and not text. It's also registered to your Apple ID. Try turning iMessage off and then back to Settings>Messages and log out of your Apple ID at the top. Then log back in and give iMessage a few minutes to register again with your mobile number selected.

Brocks  Receiving your text messages is definitely important. Go to settings,messages, receive and what option is selected?

I go into Messages there is a Send & Receive selection. My email address

is showing. I select Send & Receive and mu phone and email address is

there. A check mark is next to my email address. Is this the problem? I

was unable to remove my email address. I tried to remove my email address

but the response is "This email address could not be removed."

Thank you for your response. I will stand by for your next request or

instructions.
