Question: iMessage broken

My imessage on both my computer and phone will not allow me to log in. Every time I log in on my computer it says 'an error has occurred during authentication' and when I try to log in to my phone it freezes. This problem also happens with my facetime. I have created three different accounts and they all do the same. I have checked for correct date&time, internet, turned imessage and facetime off and on and tried restarting my phone and computer. They are also both up to date with the latest IOS update. How do I fix this problem? Is it to do with my icloud?

iPhone 6s, iOS 11.1, Macbook Air

Have someone else attempt to sign in using their Apple ID. If they can successfully sign in and use Messages/FaceTime, it may be your Apple ID.Someone I know had this happen and I was able to sign in usingmy Apple ID. After a call to Apple Support and then being elevated to a tier 2 support person, it turned out it was a problem with their Apple ID. It took the software engineers 3-4 days to fix the problem. When calling Apple, make sure you tell them it is an Apple ID problem so you don't get charged.

There is a contact link.
