Hi, thanks for using I am Cris. Go to iMessage settings via Settings -> iMessage -> Send & Receive.You can see your primary phone number listed in grey with 1 or more email address below. If any phone number has check mark next to it, click the phone number and it will remove the check mark from the listed email address.Let me know how you make out with this solution.

Should I set things up as a phone number or as an email
Expert:  Cris replied 1 year ago.
What do you mean? You should want to send text through your phone number. Your Apple ID is registered in iMessage so you can message from other devices like a iMac or iPad.
