This happened to my DD's iPhone 5. AT&T told us to reset the network under settings I believe ten you need to re-enter your wifi password. That worked for a couple weeks now yesterday DD didn't get two messages from one person. Guess we will have to reset the network again. Anyone else having this problem ?

I was on LTE (data) so our wireless didn't have anything to do with why it wasn't working.

first thing to check... --> https://www.apple.com/support/systemstatus/

if it is up, then sign out of your iMessage account, and sign back in. that will usually fix whatever issue u had before.

I just updated yesterday to IOS8, unfortunately. I should have stuck with my gut and not upgraded.

THAT is why imessage isn't working. Resetting the network doesn't do anything.

GRRR, I KNEW I shouldn't have upgraded!

Go to settings and then iMessage and make sure you have the correct send and receive addresses selected.

Only my email is an option. I don't want my email to be an option at all. It doesn't even show my phone number for imessage. On Facetime, my phone number is there, but is greyed out so can't be tapped on.


I have been trying to fix this thing for the last half an hour and I've about had it.

Well, I've discovered it works when I only have cellular turned on, but not wifi only. I reset the network settings this morning and re-entered our wifi password. That has not worked.

It stopped working yesterday, then came back on and then stopped working again this morning, all with me doing nothing.

What a headache.

ETA: And now it has mysteriously started working with just wifi again...GAH

I kept getting an error occurred during activation message or it wouldn't activate at all, which is a common problem with this update.

I had been texting a friend since Monday and was angry, thinking they were ignoring me. This morning around 7 am I got a text that said hey I just got all your messages since Monday....

I had a couple of days (right after I updated to IOS8) where my imessages would take forever "sending" and then fail. Then I'd have to send them as text messages instead. It was very annoying but everything seems to be fine now.
