Updated to iOS5 around noon today.  My iMessage still says "Waiting for activation...", someone told me there was a email I was supposed to receive.  I never got one.  How do I get Apple to resend said email, or more to the point - activate iMessage on my Telus iPhone 4?

Well folks, it took over 12 hours, countless failed Google attempts but finally, I got it to work.  Evidently it was a bad install, I used iTunes to do a factory restore and it both FaceTime and iMessage worked in a matter of seconds.


And yes, the mention of a email requiring activation is total bulls****.  I'll thank my friend for that later.

i tried testing imessage with a friend & it said that it was sent. but when i went to my settings menu, it said that it was waiting for activation, along with facetime. I tried to test facetime but it can't connect as well. i even tried connecting facetime on the ipad, it said that it needs an internet connection to work, but was online at that time. what gives?

Ok. I had the same problem just a couple hours ago and here's what worked for me: Settings--> General--> Reset--> Reset Network settings.
