I can't check my phone number as a recipient for iMessage. (It is greyed out)

    Sounds like the iPhone setting page where it remains greyed out whether ticked or not.


    However it should be ticked.

    Remove the Apple ID.

    Place the iPhone in Airplane Mode or turn Off the Messages app

    After a few minutes wait open the Messages settings again.

    Is the iPhone Number now ticked ?

    If it is re-add the Apple ID.
