Hello to all!

I joined this forum today looking for some advice and hint/tips.

So here it goes... I've recently been having problems with my Imessage and Facetime on my Iphone 5. My number is not showing up when i click Send & Receive on imessage, also my number is not showing up when i click facetime under 'You can be reached by Facetime at:'

When i sign into Itunes through Imessage/Facetime my number is coming up as normal, there is also a tick next to it. So i asume that my number is selcted by this tick. Once i come back out of Imessage/Facetime, and go back into Imessage/Facetime my number is no where to be seen.

I have included some screen prints. Any help would be really great. Someone please help me

Try restoring your phone. Make sure that you back it up before you do.
