I have one person for whom whenever I send a text message Messages defaults to their email address. How do I stop that from happening, in other words how do I change the default address for someone's messages in Messages?

Hey dwr57,



We see that messages are being sent to the contact's email address instead of their phone number correct? "To change the default phone number or email address for a contact method, touch and hold the button for that method below the contact’s name, then tap a selection in the list": Add and use contact information on iPhone



Take care.
