Despite the fact that you can connect to the Internet everywhere else, it would not hurt to reboot your router. Sometimes that can work.
Unplug the router for about 30 seconds and then plug it in again. Let it power up completely and try again.

I am having the exact same problem. I've been searching forum after forum for 3 days now and tried several so called fixes without any luck. I've also read through the applicable links provided by Texas Mac Man and had no luck. The only other area this issue seems to be causing a problem is in Find My IPhone which will display my MacBook Air and iPhone but not my iPad. The issue started as soon as I updated to 6.1.3.
Change DNS to 220.127.116.11
Reset all settings
Make sure date and time set automatically on
Make sure region set properly
All other functionality works fine including iTunes and the App Store.

I've just started dealing with this. To say that I am frustrated and furious is to put it mildly. Steve Jobs should be turning in his grave to see the garbage Apple is becoming.

Immediately after writing these remarks I gave it one last try and I was able to sign into IMessage and Facetime on my Ipad and Iphone 5. What did I do? Absolutely nothing. I reset nothing, changed nothing, all of my contact location information was in sync from before, the time setting was on automatic. The only thing I did was to try repeatedly and lose two hours reading forums on the internet. Oh, yes. I did do one thing that seemed to have worked. I vented my frustration on this forum. Maybe the ghost of Steve Jobs heard me. LOL

Bet you've been cheating some games by changing the date candy crush?? Lol! Anyway revert to the correct date and time, switch ur device off, turn it back on and go to your msg settings to activate. Should work!!

I have been struggling with this issue on my macbook pro for over a week. iMessage is working fine on both my iphone and ipad, but I can no longer connect on my macbook. I haven't updated any software. I am running OSX 10.8.4.
