    1- turn on and off

    2- reset everything to defult

    3- recover IOS again

    4- check my Number and delet and write again

    5-checking the time and region

    but all these way not work for me ,i try to insert another simcard for another operator with diffrent number the i message and face time work normally when i try to  insert my old sim card back the i message and facetime   is (waiting for activation)

    i try to activate  the i message and facetime using apple ID it is activated normally but it show in the facetime setting  my apple ID and trying to veirfied with another numbernot my own number i also try all the steps above but not work


    the other iphone has the same issue with imessage and facetime and also it show (unknown) in my number and i can not edit it
