Okay so after reading through a lot of posts I finally found the solution. I had an error message saying "An error occured activating account. Please try again." and I tried all the solutions posted on other threads with no luck. Finally I thought i'd log onto iTunes and connect my iPhone to see if it needed updating (which it didn't because I did the update 2 days ago). For some reason when I clicked onto my Apple ID to log on it displayed "Your account has been disabled. Please click reset to reset your account". Why my account was disabled in beyond me but I had to change my password. Using my new password I activated Facetime and iMessage - please note that both did continue to display Waiting for activation... until I sent a message to someone - and BOOM it works :-) hope this helps!!

Mine didn't work for 2 months and this fixed it, so I posted it in another discussion and have been getting "thank you" replies nearly daily:
Just update your date/time settings:
>> Date & Time
>>> Set Automatically: Slide "ON"...If it's already on, then slide it off, chill for a bit (maybe restart it), then slide it back on.
I am using an iPhone 4 with iOS 5.1, but other users with 3GS, 4S, and even iTouch devices replied that it worked.
