While you all are at it, I would like to share my experience. I activated imessage on my iPhone 4. While the activation was uncuccessful, i was still able to imessage other iphone contacts via their apple ids.
When i got my bill this month, i was surprised to see that vodafone has charged me for 22 international smses to 447786205094. These smses were sent literally every day at regular intervals. I called both, apple support and vodafone but they say they have no idea.
I know it sends sms whenever you switch imessage on, but i did it only once and necer touched it since then.
I think my iphone kept trying to authenticate my mobile number to be used in imessage, but since vodafone does not support imessage, it kept failing ( apple support personnel confirmed that vodafone does not support imessage on mobile number).
Any thoughts ?
Like i had mentioned before i got an airtel prepaid sim card.Works Perfect!
No silly waiting for activation like on Vodafone India Network.
So clearly for me its a Vodafone carrier issue,where vodafone is blocking something which airtel isnt.
So Pls the Vodafone Representatives on this forum take some initiative and get this solved.
Otherwise I will be dissconnecting Vodafone and continuing airtel postpaid.
So pls Vodafone do something.....

Even after providing the details earlier and registering official complaint to Appelate also "NO SERIOUS RESPONSE" from your team....As u r now again mentioning, I will once again do the same.........Re: Vodafone India customer....on my iPhone5, imessage and facetime are giving error "waiting for activation"
I have already raised the same to Vodafone team and the request number is 1262872630. Please check on the same.....just for your information (as mentioned by Joel) "when iMessage is activated, it sends an international message to the UK to activate your iMessage service. Usually if it says Waiting for activation, International SMS is not provisioned, and it is failed to activate. "
I have already shared my contact sometime back. I have got a call from your nodal office and they are aware of the problem, also they have told me to wait for 48 hours. I am a 10 year old customer with atleast 40 -50 number under my companies name and will not accept this kind of service and response. Please note the problem is from vodafone india and not apple as other sim cards are working.
Vodafone ur web link is useless.....they call back....but only to say will be resolved within 48 hours and forget about it.541569604 on 23/01/2013,went to Vodafone Store Santacruz and they just took a informal request and said they will forward it to the back office.my friends who have also complained on ur link are
544104437 so Vodafone India is not looking into Iphone Imessage Problem....
problem is still not resolved.....ive made a complain on the consumer forum india website
on the 23rd of Jan
they also say will get back to you but no response......well iam already using my new Airtel Connection.....and Vodafone is standby because of their negligience.....
Im sure if the problem is not resolved soon,then Vodafone India will be loosing a lot of money.....
We dont want to,But Vodafone India leaves us no choice ....
