Make sure you have added your phone number as an additional contact in your iMessages application. If all your current friends are reaching you by your Apple ID, the Apple servers also need to know your phone number.

@NFtoBC how does that impact sites that use SMS for 2FA? I don't know much about the Apple ecosystem but I would think that iMessage wouldn't get in the way of SMS sent to a phone number.

You need to realize Telus has no control over how iMessage works on your phone. It's an Apple app.

Can you get someone not on an iPhone to send you a SMS to confirm it works?
