I was wondering if you could help with this question regarding iOS. It's a straight rip from a blog post I made, so here goes:
I've been looking for an answer and searching the Web for God knows how long. Does anyone know why Apple hasn't addressed the issue of not being able to tell which particular number you are messaging -- if, for example, the contact has multiple numbers or accounts? Like if you "call" a contact's work number, below the name it says "work." Wouldn't it help for Apple to do the same thing in the Messages app? All we are able to tell is whether or not it's an iMessage-enabled account.
A lengthy option would be to store the same contact with different names in your address book, according to which number or account you're calling.
Someone please help....
First of all, you can choose whether you want a number to be 'work' or 'home' by tapping on the "mobile" right next to the phone number field.
Last but not least, you can tell if the recipient is an iMessage user by looking at the 'send' button. If the button has white-on-blue text, he/she is iMessage enabled. If not, it'll be white-on-green.
Hope this helps.

simply all iMessages recieved get delivered to all the devices which the account is configured to, maybe thats why Apple doesnt display to where its being sent, as also privacy issues.
