Hi, I was wondering if you could help me? I live in America and i have a macbook and iphone but i recently came to Pakistan to visit. So, my iMessage works perfectly fine on my iphone over wifi and even on my macbook UNTIL i accidentally signed out of imessage from my mac (whomph) and now it wont let me sign back in and it says "Could not sign in to imessage. The server encountered an error processing registration. Please try again later" I signed out from imessage on my iphone and signed back in and its working fine. Any suggestions?
I tried doing what you told @laurenpheale and now my messages arent going through on imessage..
P.S. i tried attaching a screenshot but it's not working. Also, i'm currently in PK right now!
Very well could be an issue with iMessage working properly on a Mac because fo the country you're in. You'd have to check on that to be sure... it would certainly be a new issue I wasn't aware of before, but if it's something geo-location based, then that could be the cause.
The reason why it's still working on your phone could be a cell carrier agreement to get around such a limitation. Perhaps the ISP you're using for WIFI access on the PC won't allow said protocol to work. Even with WIFI on the phone turned on and linked, if iMessage fails on that layer, it'll fall back to the data network on the cell carrier as a backup, so it's not exactly a good measure to say it's working fine on the phone, so it should also work on the PC as well. (I hope this makes sense.)
