Does your phone show your current iCloud ID in Settings>iCloud or did it revert to an older ID when you updated to iOS 7?

It's still my current ID

I'm not sure if any of these will help, but there was a recent article with some suggestions you could try here: http://osxdaily.com/2013/09/23/fix-imessage-and-facetime-activation-errors-with- ios-7/.

I appreciate you trying to help me. I've tried all those suggestions. I got to the last one where I am trying to restore my phone, but I can't because it won't let me shut off Find My Phone in iCloud. I have to do this to restore the phone. It won't recognize my Apple password. Ugh!!! I even tried deleting my iCloud account and it keeps denying me because it says I have to delete Find My iPhone first! I deleted theFind my iPhone app and that didn't work. It still detects it in the cloud. I tried re-downloading the Find My iPhone app again to see if that would help and it won't let me do that either.

You're welcome. I'm not sure what else to suggest since you indicated that you have already changed your password and it still isn't accepted. I'm afraid you may need to contact Apple support for help at this point. If you want to do this, go to http://www.apple.com/support/icloud/contact/, then 'Account and Setup', then perhaps 'Troubleshooting iCloud Account Issues', then 'Continue'.
