    Your Imessage feature has nothing to do with your mobile number. Imessages travel using date connection and routed using the email attached to your apple ID.

     

    Make sure your apple ID isn't currently registered to any old Iphones. Also try singing out of your apple Id on your phone and signing back in.

     

    Also what happens when you attempt to send a Imessage.

    -Verify you are messaging a imessage compatable device Iphone 3gs and up

    -Verify data connectivity via mobile network or wifi

    Try this support document http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2755 for troubleshooting messages, and this one http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4268 for troubleshooting iMessage activation. You might want to turn iMessage off, wait a couple of minutes and then turn it back on again.
