    I also have this issue and I've been trying to get it to work for SOOO long.  At least I know what the issue is now.  My mobile number also ends in 0000 and I have this EXACT same issue.  I wish Apple would advise on what the issue is and if they have any intention of fixing it.

    I too have the same problem.  4 consecutive zeros in my phone number. (XXX) XX0-0008.  I took forever to get my phone activated with verizon.  I have an open case with apple.  I hope it can be fixed.

    Well i had the same problem but i figured that out in mints

    If anyone facing this problem you have to go to settings and the restrictions and desable them all

    Your iMessage will work perfectly fine. I havent yet know what is it have to disabled in order to allow iMessage work.


    *you might really need the restrictions to be activated.

    For me i dont need it so I turned it off

    Hi, Roberto.


    My problem is exactly as you described. I've changed my SIM card and now I can't use FaceTime or iMessage. I tried to do what you said, but on Settings -> Mail, contacts, calendars -> My info there's no place to select my card.

    This idea worked for me. 


    I was also get this to work by disabling the WiFi and I was able to activate successfully on AT&T's 3G network.  Also no restore, no reboot required.


    I have had this problem with activing iOS upgrades while connected Cox before.

    Hey, I'm from Indonesia too!


    I have been having the same problem with my 4S. I can only receive & send iMessage from my email.

    What carrier do you use? I'm using telkomsel flash.

    I have a 0000 phone number too. Apple engineers are aware of the issue, but no fix is available (other than changing your number).

    Problem solved by iOS6.
