Hi there, this morning I recieved my brand new white iPhone 5c.
My step-mum also got an iPhone 5c earlier in the week and hers worked with absolutely no issues.
However for me, the iMessage just refuses to work and I can't figure out why. I've sat for hours looking through the forums for a solution and I can't seem to find anything that works.
Firstly, with iMessage I understand you can send messages using your Apple Id email over the wifi. But I want to also be able to send actual text messages photo(1).PNGapple.jpgwithout using the wifi. When I go into send and receive there's no phone number. Is there any way to input my phone number so I can send texts? Am I missing something.


In regards to overall 'waiting activation' thing, I've had the phone about 12 hours now and it still says the same. I tried a lot of solutions posted here before, restoring the network/internet, rebooting the iphone with factory settings, on and off, turning everything in the iPhone off and back on again, nothing seems to work. Just wondering if there's something I'm missing, or is the solution just patience and the servers at apple are going haywire? Thanks , sorry its a long post!

iPhone 5c, iOS 7.0.4
