Anyone having issue on activating your iphone imessage?
mine just stop working (was working) then could not activate again..

just keep saying "waiting for activation".

tried to reboot, reset network settings, etc.

I got SMS working fine and has wifi..
I can make it work using apple ID but not through my mobile no.

I believe the problem could be not able to receive the activation from either apple or vodafone..
but yeah, this was working 5 hours ago then just suddenly imessage not working..

I got ios 8.4 on vodafone business account.

I hope JohnR could check for me.. if you get a chance..

iMessage activation on a iPhone is done by sending a text message to a UK number (there's the normal international text charge for each activation and message sent). The text message confirms to Apple that the sender of the sms (your mobile number) can be linked to your Apple ID.

I guess there might have been a delay sending the message or it being processed at the other end.
