Hello everyone,

I recently bought a used iPhone 4S with iOS 6 from a family member. The iPhone has no service to the AT&T SIM card. I tried to activate my iMessage with my Apple ID but have had no luck. It just says "Waiting for Activation" for both iMessage and FaceTime. I tried toggling on/off both services, turning on and off WI-Fi, resetting the Network settings, signing out from my Apple ID, and even doing a full restore and a reinstall of iOS 6.1.3. If anyone could help me with resolving this issue, it would be greatly appeciated.


Thanks in advance,

Alex Schultz

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.3
