I have been unable to activate iMessage or Facetime since updating to iOS 7.0.


I still get the "Waiting for Activation" error after applying the latest patch and have been unable to use iMessage or Facetime.


I figured it was a good time to start a new thread so that it could be documented the actions I have taken.


  1. I have turned off iMessage.
  2. I have turned off FaceTime.
  3. I have turned off WiFi.
  4. I have powered down the iPhone.
  5. I have powered up the iPhone.
  6. I have turned on iMessage and all I get still is the "Waiting for Activation..." message.
  7. I'd love to be able to be critical of Apple's product but I got this iPhone as a gift....
iPhone 4, iOS 7.0.3
