    I am having the exact same problem after updating my Iphone. Imessage works from Ipad but not my Iphone. Messages come from my email not my phone number. People are also unable to send my texts.  Under settings-Imessage is ON but is 'waiting for activation' Please. help me out too! When I try to input my password and into apple ID it says 'could no sign in. please check your network connection and try again' after I press 'sign in'. I do not have a network issue as my husbands phone works fine (under same carrier) and connection works on Ipad.

    I have the same problem as above.

     

    I had to change my apple password since I forgot it, and everything was fine, until all of a sudden my iphone stopped sending messages. I followed Apple's instructions, and I get "waiting for activation" and when I put in my apple password I get "'could no sign in. please check your network connection and try again'".

     

    Can someone help please.Thanks you.

    Which OS are you on?

    One option would be to sign out of iCloud and then sign back in with your new password
