    So, my iMessage is half working. I am getting inbound messages, but cannot send any out. They show up as text messages and do not send. Any ideas on where to start? The iMessages preferences screen looks normal, no issues with login or other error messages.

    I hope an easy question.

    If I have a working hackintosh with serial etc that has been tested working, can I use those same numbers on a clean install. The same hardware, except a replacement HD and a clean macOS install in order to do some testing. Can I copy the relevant clover section across to the clean install or is that asking for trouble somewhere? The clean install has so far been kept offline.

    I"m not sure where to start to fix mine. Messages sort of works.

    I get some messages in iMessage, some in sms. When I try sending some messages, they go as sms, sometimes they go as iMessage.

    If I send a test to myself for example, they work fine as iMessage and come on my phone & iPad. If I send to another iPhone, it tries sms, then fails. But if someone messages me, I get it and can reply.

    My machine shows up in iCloud properly. Air drop & everything else works.

    Any ideas where to start?

    Your problem seems to be a slight synchronisation glitch between your devices. Logging out from iCloud usually corrects the problem.

    Login over icloud.com, go to Settings>My devices and remove all of them.
    Wait about 24-48 hours then try to login again. It should be working.

    I already did it and even tried to launch it with new Apple ID. I did everything after a clean installation HS, no luck. Any ideas?

    I've had a hackintosh for a couple of years and never got iMessage to work. Just tried tonight and it worked for the first time. I haven't made any changes except for regular MacOS updates and NUC updates from Rehabman. Hey ho lets hope it stays working.
