Hey mims1212,
Thanks for the question. You can configure what address you start new conversations from on both devices:
iOS and OS X: Link your phone number and Apple ID for use with FaceTime and iMessage
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5538
Please note that this will only work for new conversations, and will also be affected if another iMessage user starts a conversation with you (ex. if a friend sent you a message to your phone number, you will still receive that on your Mac, and you will be replying from your phone number).
Thanks,
Matt M.

    Check Settings>Messages>Receive At>Caller ID, make sure it's set to your phone number not your email address.

  • How can I make iTunes sort on the first word by default, even though that word is "The" or "A"?

    How can I make iTunes sort on the first word by default, even though that word is "The" or "A"?
    I myself think that (for instance) "A tribe called Quest" should be sorted under "A", not "T".
    Now I can edit the sort options manually per track and/or per selection, but I would really like to just kill this "iTunes-knows-how-you-should-sort"-feature in iTunes.
    Anyone any suggestion on how to do that?
    Thanks

    Here is a modified version of one of Doug's Scripts. My modification was to add Sort Name to the list of tags that could be changed. I tried it on a single track and it worked. I recommend backing up your library first. Select the tracks you want to change (or all tracks) and run the script from the Applescript Editor.  If it works as intended, save it so you can apply it to newly imported tracks.  And, yes, I know this isn't the exact answer to your question, you want to change a preference setting in iTunes (if there is such a setting).
    Original script can be forund at http://dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/ss.php?sp=thistagthattag
    Modified script is below. Start up Applescript Editor, paste it into a new window.  Start up iTunes and select the tracks to modify.  Click Run in the Applescript Editor.  Follow the instructions.
    (* Put This In That
    v2.0 april 22 2008
    - runs as universal binary
    - adds "Show" tag
    - consolidated code
    - saved as script bundle
    v1.7 October 3, 2006
    - adds "Album Artist" as option
    v1.6 October 28, 2004
    - works around iTunes 4.7 selection bug
    v1.5 ('04/1)-- adds "grouping" tag

    Perhaps it’s a design feature to speed up the Organizer launch.
    I am sure it is.
    - The normal use of the Organizer is not the folder view, it's the thumbnail view with an organization based on categories and folder. That way you should forget completely where your pictures are stored. Anyway, the folder view in the Explorer is not a map of the location of the different bits of your file, it's only a logical representation. That's easy to see when you are doing a defragmentation.
    - The folder view is useful even for those using normally the thumbnail view, but that is only for rare cases when you must change the folder organization, for instance moving files to another drive. The folder view is here to prevent you from changing things from the explorer and outside of the Organizer.
    - The new folder list view, which you find 'funny' is there to help better organizing using tags. Its huge advantage is that such a view is created extremely quickly by extracting the last subfolder in the media table : it's the way the database sees the folders, based on its own content,  totally ignoring the complex folder organization of your disk with media files or any unrelated other kind of data. You should use it in many cases, the main purpose being assigning tags when you have assigned descriptive folder names. I had suggested such a solution to prevent the long standing bugs in the folder view of previous versions.
    So yes, the purpose is:
    - to speed up switching modes
    - to help folder organization fans to migrate to tags organization
    - to hopefully get rid of the old folder organization bugs

  • How can i make a free facetime video call? There's always appearing that my provider might charge for the call?

    How can i make a free facetime video call? There's always appearing that my provider might charge for the call?

    If you make a call then tap the Facetime button to connect Facetime, the duration of call up to Facetime connection will be charged under your regular airtime.  However, duration during facetime conversation will not consume airtime.
    But if you tap the Facetime button on the Contact Page, then the whole duration will not consume airtime.
    For Facetime to work, both parties must be connected to wifi.

  • When I send a text from my iPad, it shows that it comes from my email address.  If I then text that same someone from my iPhone it still shows as if its coming from my iPad.  How do I stop this?

    When I send a text from my iPad, it shows that it comes from my email address.  If I then text that same someone from my iPhone it still shows as if its coming from my iPad.  How do I stop this?

    On your iPhone, go to Settings -> Messages -> Receive At -> Caller ID and make sure the phone number is selected - this will cause new messages sent from your iPhone to appear to come from your iPhone phone number.
    (I actually prefer to have my email selected, so that when I message someone from my iPhone and they reply, it goes to both my iPhone and iPad)
    Also, when you send a message from your iPhone, make sure you're not replying within an existing conversation (that was created on your iPad and linked to your email). Just start a new conversation (even if it's to the same person) by going to the Messages app, going back to "Messages" (top left corner) if you're already looking at a conversation, and then clicking the Compose icon in the top right.

  • I am restoring an iphone 5 that i bought from a friend and when i go to activate it its says "iPhone could not be activated because the activation server is temporarily unavailable..."

    I just bought this iphone 5 from a friend and it has no sim card in it. i got it restored but when i tried to activate it on the intial setup it is say "iPhone cannot be activated at this time the activation server is temporairly unavailable. ???

    yes did you buy it of somebody or a well known company such as apple or carphone warehouse?
    and i mean the phone would have been activated in the first place with the sim card you get given when you first get the phone.
    trying to activate the phone with another sim card that you did not get when you brought the phone may result in you not being able to activate it
    no worries

    When i sync my ipod, i have noticed on the left hand side, under devices, my ipod, when i click on music, some of the songs are grey, and the others are black. The ones which are grey have a round circle with two arrows in. These are the ones which havent copied onto my ipod. I had no problem before until recently and all of a sudden! Can anyone please help me sort this out so that all my music will transfer onto my ipod, i have been trying for over a week!

    Never mind, the problem just fixed itself when i searched for an artist that wasn't there. That was odd.

  • How can I make my clips burnt to disc play through without having to pick clip titles from the menu?

    I burnt some clips from iDVD to DVD and want to know if anyone knows if there is a setting to make the clips flow through instead of having to go to menu and pick each clip?

    Two ways:
    1 - join the clips together as one file with Qjuicktime Player, iMovie or other app designed for that and use the single clip.
    2 - create a slideshow in iDVD and add the clips to it.  Set the slides display time to anything except manualliy. Do not add a transition or music.

    websites often choose colors that I have trouble distinguishing between but overriding the other colors can cause color defects on certain websites.
