Forwarding messages from iPhone to iPad
Posted by: freeradical

My phone is sending and receiving text messages from my cell#.

My iPad is set up in messages to use my Apple ID, so I never see them there.

Apple says that I have to set up my phone to use my Apple ID to get messages to forward. Why?

How does this work if messages on the phone is not associated with a cell phone number?

I do, but I don't have a cell phone plan for the iPad.

In the past, I've tethered to my phone.

You need to do a couple of things.

On the iPhone, you need to use your AppleID for iMessages, AND associate that phone number with iMessages and that AppleID.

The iPad (and your Mac) can sign into iMessages using that AppleID and should now see any iMessages sent to the cell number.
(Settings>Messages>iMessage enabled)
{Settings>Messages>Send & Receive)

The final step is for the iPhone to "forward" SMS/Text messages to the iPad (and Mac). Then they can see texts from non-iMessage users.
(Settings>Messages>Text Message Forwarding).
