Your phone has to be able to send a text message in order for iMessage to activate. Can you send international texts?

Nah I can't since I don't have an international data plan or anything... I can only use my phone via wifi. Is there no other way to activate iMessage? There must be... Or could I activate it by sending a text from a different phone? (I have a Greek number too)

You don't have to have an international data plan to text. Text and data are two different things. You do have to have the cellular portion of you phone turned on so that the phone can send a text. If you have your phone suspended through Verizon and are just using it on WiFi, you're out of luck.
You might be able to use another instant messaging app such as Skype.
