sorry to hear Strunky! i was in a similar position as you and need my imessage and my facetime to keep in touch while travelling....i did find a way to fix this problem...but it kept recurring and i had to redo it several times ...but its worth a shot...i went into the general settings then to imessage and then turned it off went back out to general and did the same with Facetime....then i went to general and reset network settings ...which gives u a reboot...and then i went back into imessage and turned it back on....you will see it connecting to server when you do that ...now when you go into facetime to do it....you may have to do a reset again and go back in...but do same for just the facetime...not good at explaining but hope u get what i mean...it was posted on this thread and thats how i saw it to know to try it...good luck
II've done the same thing asyhou and it works most of the time now.
BUT, does anyone know what it means when you type in a contacts name to send a text msg to and it comes up RED with an exclamation point.....their phone number is where in sending it to and is in the persons contact info and is a valid number.
Just curious! I need help!
I recently lost the ability to send a group text - it would show on my iPhone 5 as sent but the recipients on iPhone 4's would not receive it. I upgraded to version 6.1.3 a while ago and iMessage was working properly after the upgrade, so I don't think the upgrade was directly related. I used the idea from a previous post - I went to Settings/Messages and turned off iMessages. I re-booted the phone, turned iMessages back on and the group text began working again.
I recently lost the ability to message on my ipad also and finally got it going but am unsure which process did the trick.
First, I removed my email from iMessage and kept only me cell number. Next, I set the clock to automatically update. Once I did that my messages started working again. Who knows?
By any chance have any of you been modifying TinyTower? Did anyone mess with their keychain-2.db file?
If keychain-2.db is not properly chowned back to _securityd, or if the file is deleted completely, it can cause this behavior.
That would be me.
I had a 5yr old try to guess the passcode on my phone until it was completely disabled.
I had to delete keychain-2.db to undo (since I wanted to avoid a complete restore)
But now I can't get iMessages to activate
The new keychain-2.db has this:
User: Read, Write
Is there anything I can do to fix it?
