My Internet was lagging last night, and I turned iMessage off, then when I went to turn it back on, it says "An error has occourred during activation.  Please try again."  I tried resetting my iPod several times, the slider to turn iMessage off is gone, and I'm positive I entered my Apple ID correctly.  Please help!


iPod touch, iOS 5.0.1

    I suspect an Apple server problem. Many users are reporting problems with Messages and Facetime today.

    Likewise my girlfriend and I wanted to FaceTime and I message, it will not work then when she signed out and signed back in it said error in activation. I believe it's a network problem. I'm waiting for what apple will say to help us all out. My iPad oddly enough works fine, I can make calls to face time and I message but on my g.fs it did not work before we signed out of the apple I.d. Now she can't sign on but surfing on safari is fine. I tried everything mentioned from changing the dns of 8.8.8.8 , 8.8.4.4 and it didn't help, along with everything else
