    yes you can associate just your phone number to imessage and remove email.

    just go to the Messages from Settings, then go to "Receive At" then tap on your Apple ID and log out of it, now only your iphone number will be associated instead of both email and phone number

    Thanks it worked.

    Also when i first ran my phone i got a screen saying that if i wanted to connect with my apple-id at startup screen, but I skipped over that step, what does it do if i would've had typed in my apple-id at setup when i first started my iphone? would it automaticly have added my apple-id to imessage and all other functions on my iphone? or was it only for iCloud ? (havnt setup it either yet)

    and what does FaceTime do ? sometime when i open my messages i get a popup window saying "My operator will eventually take a amount of $ using FaceTime blabla"

    no problem..

    to answer your questions:

    if you would have skipped the apple-id sign-up during setup, you would have had to enter it again if you downloaded anything from the appstore, but if you enter it at initial setup, it would have logged you into the appstore, and it would also add it to imessage as well

    Facetime allows you to talk with another person on their iphone using face to face and voice. I dont really use facetime but i believe its only available for certain carriers
