    Hi,

     

    The normal message is  "The server encountered an error processing registration. Please try again later.".

     

    Are you saying you are getting something different ?

     

    Can you explain what steps you have taken and where you have entered your Apple ID you want to use ?

    Hi Ralph, do you mean the key for the Apple ID? I'm in my keychain access and there isn't one there that specifically says "iMessage" in the login keys

    Hi,

     

    Yes it should be the Apple ID.

     

    The reason I said iMessages is because I use different Apple IDs in different apps.

    iCloud uses one ID (well one "Name" lined aith an iCloud ID)  and Messages for iMessages uses another.

     

    I have several @mac.com names that I only uses and AIM Screen Names also in Messages.

    Hi,

     

    Close FaceTime and Messages.

    In the Finder use the Go Menu > Hold ALT Key down and then select the Library that appears.

    Open the Preferences

    Find the com.apple.imagent.plist

    Drag this to the Trash

    restart the computer (It is used by an App that starts when the computer does)

     

    A new .plist will be created afresh.

     

    Can you log in to iMessages now ?

    Hi,

     

    The "Fixes" that seem to work are:-

     

    Checking and setting Date and Time in both Computer and Router (including Time Zone)

     

    Using Activity Monitor to Quit IMAgent whilst Messages is closed

     

    An alternative to this is to  delete the com.apple.imagent.plist first the restarting the Mac (IMAgent starts when the computer does and Quitting it makes it restart but deleting the .plist should get it rewritten)

     

    If that does not work we are then in to deleting com.apple.imservice.iMessage.plist  (Holds the Apple ID you are using and any Aliases set up)

     

    Also com.apple.iMessage.bag.plist  (holds the server info in use)

     

    If this does not work try creating a test Mac User Account and set that up for Messages.

     

    Try Booting in to Safe Mode and seeing if Messages will launch properly.

    Hi,

     

    In Messages > Preferences > Accounts use the Sign Out Button and close Messages app.

    On the iPhone and any other iOS device remove the Apple ID

     

    Turn Messages Off on the iPhone.

    Turn the Messages back on again.

    Turn On Messages on the Mac.

    Add the Apple ID back on the settings.

    Do you now get a message/Alert on the Mac to say the iPhone is using the Apple ID ?

    Has it been added to Messages as the iMessages account name ?

    Hi,

     

    Yesterday I noticed that my Mac App version was not displaying the iPhone Number as an Alias.

    I checked the iPhone and somehow it had lost it "activation"

     

    I went to check the setting today when I was sat at home in front of the computer and found I have left that phone at work.

     

    I have found my Second iPhone has also needed to be reset to Activate

    It's own number is greyed out for Send and Receive but it says it cannot verify the other iPhone's Number (not that I want it in there.)

    This second phone is still saying "Waiting for Activation" regarding iMessages but has all the other sliders and places now visible.

     

    I can send iMessages back and forth although the Mac is "receiving" them before the iPhone has confirmed it "Sent" them.

     

    I also strangely got an IM from the 23rd of Sept popping up on the Mac in-between the Mac Sending and getting the return Message I set up.

     

    The Messages app on the iPhone is still "Waiting for Activation" and I cannot use the iPhone's Number.

     

    At present the app on th iPhone seems to be working.

    It seems to be the server that is "refusing" the iPhone Number.

     

    In a minute I will try removing the Apple ID and seeing if it will activate for iPhone number only.

    Also worth looking into are any installed third party Anti-Virus 'Security', and 'Privicy'.

     

    For me all the mentioned fixes had no relevance. It was the pressence of a notorn security suite installation which, even when disabled, was still disallowing the connection.

     

    Simply loaded through Notron un-installer and messages was functional!

     

    Less norton, less problems. Yay OS X GateKeeper!

    I did everything you suggested:

     

    1. changed the host file into nothing more than the default one.

     

    2. deleted all iMessage related things in Keychain

     

    I also deleted AIM account, etc. in System (Mail, Contacts..)

     

    Yet I still can't log onto iMessage on my OS X 10.8.2. And got the message: "Could not sign in. Please check your network connection and try again."

     

    My network connection has no problem at all, not has my password. In fact, I just downloaded an app with the same Apple account in the App Store....

     

    Any advice?
