How to get iMessage to use your mobile number

It's the old turn it on and off again that makes it work (after upgrading to iOS6 and latest OSX it did not automatically pick up my mobile, it was only giving my email as a recipient).

On the iPhone under iMessage settings, unselect your email/appleId, then add your AppleId. On entering settings on OSX my mobile suddenly appeared as a possible recipient.

Still not appearing on the iPad, so in settings I toggled iMessage off and then back on to re-activate it. Lowe and behold my number then appeared as a possible recipient. I think doing this also updated FaceTime to use my mobile on the iPad too, I still need to check if OSX FaceTime has updated too...
