iMessage/Facetime not to activate iPhone 5s

Hey guys,.

I gave my mom my old iPhone 5s to upgrade its iPhone 4S. While trying to activate iMessage or Facetime (using mobile phone) - activation fails. It is said 'Activation' and in 1 minute, it fails. I contacted my operator Vodafone Romania and they have confirmed that number of iMessage is not blocked and even reset some settings of my network at their end. Always the same question.

If during the 1 minute the "activation" appears under the iMessage/Facetime activation code I choose ' use my apple ID to send iMessage/Facetime ", I get my credentials for appleID and I press activate it if sits for about 1 minute, trying to"activate using my credentials"and then fails.

My questions are:

1. his old iPhone 4S is not called factory. I just out of the sim card, replaced by a SIM from nano and placed in the iphone 5 s. Y at - it a mistake to activation by using his phone number because the apple servers see that same phone number has been used to activate his previous phone? (I disabled imessage and facetime on iphone 4S now)

2. is there a number of devices that I am allowed to have use my appleID? Or use facetime/imessages with? I have 3 iphones (2 in fact, since 1 is the old iphone 4S) and 1 iPad.

3. I already tried resetting the iphone and connected to itunes, tried to activate 4 g network using appleID on wifi and more. Any other place on the iphone5S where I get my credentials of appleid work - but not for facetime or imessage. You have any other suggestions for me to try?

Thank you

Raluca

I just checked with my carrier again. There are 20 + messages sent in the imessage Center, and they have all been charged. Is there a problem with the apple servers? The number of messages have been sent to is:

  • iMessage does not sync between iPhone, Mac Mini, MacBook Air

    My main computer is: Mac Mini (mid-2011), El Capitan 10.11.1 (B 15, 42)

    My secondary computer is: MacBook Air (13 inch, mid-2012), El Capitan 10.11.1 (B 15, 42)

    And my iPhone is: iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 9.1 (B 13, 143)

    iMessage used to sync between my iPhone and my computers very well. I was also able to answer incoming calls on my iPhone with computers. It seems that, just at the time I upgraded from Yosemite to El Capitan (or maybe iOS 9.1) synchronization no longer works. I tried pretty much everything I read on the forums, but nothing works. When I go into SETTINGS, MESSAGES and TRANSMISSION of MESSAGE TEXT on my iPhone and select the Mac Mini or MacBook Air, it will activate the program MESSAGES on the computer, but it won't send a code.

  • I recently bought an iphone 6s and I'm having a hard time activating my number imessage FaceTime.

    I recently bought an iphone 6s and I'm having a hard time activating my number imessage FaceTime. I migrated to an iphone 6 and where everything worked like a charm to a nightmare without end I tried all support apple suggests more change my sim card, twice, even try different phone numbers did not work. I spoke with my carrier to check any international obstacle on my serve - no luck there. Contacted by phone - apple support chance either. I EVEN DEMANDED TO REPLACE MY UNIT WITH a DIFFERENT ILS DID and guess what - STILL NOTHING! I'm running out of ideas and patience. I even tried my number deauthorised for imessage/facetime and the Lady at apple support had no idea they could that, even if Apple has a webpage set up for that matter! Last but not least, I charged a sum of rediculus of money for "Invincible" sms for activation of apple through my device for activation - ALL for NOTHING! Can someone in the Apple support give me a solution to this?

    What country are you in and who is your provider? iMessage and FaceTime activation use SMS to the Apple activation servers to the United Kingdom. If you use a carrier not supported, it may not work. If you use a supported media, make sure you have your account set up properly for an iPhone.

  • Continuity and iMessage synchronization works only on iPhone... not!

    I always be using iMessage and continuity of receive/make calls on all my devices iOS and Mac (all updated to the latest iOS/OSX).

    Recently, I noticed that even if iMessage works on all devices, iMessages are synchronized nor on my iPhone. That is, some iMessage I write on my iPhone that stays on my iPhone and don't appear on my Mac and on my iPad, everything I write on my Mac or iPad, he synchronized between the two devices except my iPhone.

    Phone calls cannot be forwarded to my iPhone from my iPad or Mac more.

    All settings look okay.

    Any help please?

    Hello Jet787,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

    I see that are not messages that you do on your iPhone to your Mac and your iPad and your Mac messages do not appear on your iPhone.  I would like that you first make sure that your phone number is configured on all your devices and make sure that it is the method that you use to send and receive your iMessages.

    Add or remove your phone number to iMessage or FaceTime on your Mac, iPad, and iPod touch

    Take care.

  • iPhone stuck in 'could not activate iPhone ".

    My iPhone was purchased the year last in the United States, but I am currently on a trip to Norway.  My carrier is Verizon.  I was not buying a package that would allow me to use this phone abroad, because I wanted to only use in emergencies and for the camera.  The camera worked OK for 9 days, but yesterday he locked in a mode "Could not activate iPhone", after that he asked me to choose a WiFi network.  I can no longer use the camera, that's all I want to do.

    I got iPhone 7 256 Jet Black GB today. I have sirius, problem with the new iPhone, which is is not activated.

    Here's what I did.

    • Use the Wifi, LTE and iTunes to activate the phone. Phone keeps saying couldn't activate iPhone and iTunes says "your request could not be processed."
    • I went to Verizon to activate the phone. They even change the SIM card, but it did not work, and they suggested me to call Apple customer service.
    • I called Apple Customer Service, and they do not know what is happening.
    • Finally, I have visited Apple Store.
      • They reset the phone and change the SIM card. It did not work.
      • Technician said that he has not seen this kind of situation before even he worked it over 2 years ago.

    What happens to my phone? Is anyway to solve this? If this does not work, do I need to rearrange the phone and wait almost 2 months? (It does not sound like a plan.)

    Please help me.

    Right there with you! I'm on AT & T and they told me the same thing. Never seen this before, blah blah blah. Been working on this for literally 12 hours now and nothing!

  • iPhone 5 could not activate iphone after updating

    Why my iphone 5 can't be activated? I had an iphone unlock 5 more than 18 months with Mobile Viking as my carrier. I updated my iphone several times. The most recent update 9.3 tells me "your iPhone could not be activated because the activation server is not reachable. Try to connect your iphone to iTunes to activate or via the cell connection in a few minutes. Alternatively, you can try to activate using a Wi - Fi connection. »

    More WiFi, I get this message 'SIM card that you have currently installed in this phone is a carrier that is not supported in respect of the assigned by the activation server activation policy. This isn't a problem with the hardware with the phone. Insert another SIM card of a carrier supported this iphone to be unlocked by your carrier? »

    It's weird because I can't get to the activation screen. My iphone will receive incoming calls. I have 3G and full bars of reception. I can't get past the activation screen.

    I did a hard reset, perforation of the menu drop down and switch to what it restarts. No change.

    I also tried connecting it to iTunes. My computer will load the phone, but iTunes does not detect the phone?

    I also tried to do a manual restore of my iphone, where I hold the menu and power on/off switch until the iTunes symbol and the cable connector appears on my iphone and my iphone is connected to iTunes. still, iTunes does not recognize my iphone.

    I have more recent update of iTunes and my ipad is also updated and working.

    I use Windows 10.

    Thanks for any advice.

    I guess that iTunes can't recognize your phone as it is obsolete. Make sure you have iTunes 12.3 or more installed and try activation/restore your phone using it.

    I went to pay my own Bill Bill of my family, now nothing will work if I'm on WIFI, no internet, my IMessage/Facetime will not turn on. I've tried everything. Help?

    Honestly, this sounds like a problem of carrier. Are you able to make/receive calls or send and receive text messages? I would first check with the carrier to make sure that your phone is still set up to use mobile data. Something was accidentally deleted when they merged your bills.

  • iMessage/Facetime activation on iOS 10 bug

    Hello

    The bug appeared after the first intentional reboot after iOS 10 updated, my iPhone 5 has been disconnected for a few hours. When it started I started to receive petitions of iM/FT on reboot or a random time after even if iM/FT completely!

    I did not move my SIM card. If I refuse to activate iM I can't see my phone number in the Contacts section.

    The same bug persists on the iPhone of my 5s wife while his phone has never been disconnected except 10.0.2 update.

    Hi Valsh,

    Here is how to fix iMessage / FaceTime activation do not question.

    Before you begin, you'll need sort these things:

    • Make sure that in the phone application, you got your registered number. On top of "Contacts", you should see your registered number (My Number :). If not, you will need to go to settings → → my phone number and enter your number.
    • Make sure that the Date and time (in general) are correct. Set to "Set automatically" to ensure that the time zone is correct and the iPhone is at the right time.
    • Also make sure you have a working network. Problems of Wi - fi can cause iMessage activation problems therefore have active cell.
      For some users, the message for activation goes out as an international SMS. Make sure that your carrier allows these and you have a sufficient amount to send them.


    1. contact your operator

    First of all, make sure that your carrier supports iMessage or not. Contact the support team of carrier and check any condition limiting on your iMessage, blocks or text filters.

    2. airplane mode

    As strange as it sounds, maybe you should try this method if nothing else works. We found the airplane mode activation mode in one of the discussions. It sounds simple, and if it is correct, it would be nice, right?

    Here's how it works:

    Step #1. Get off at scroll → settings touch Messages and turn offiMessage (also turn off FaceTime)

    Step #2. Turn on airplane mode. WiFi will be disabled automatically.

    Step #3: Turn ON Wifi.

    Step #4. Return to Messages and ignition iMessage.

    Step #5. You will be prompted for your Apple ID if you have not yet added it. (otherwise, you get no notification)

    Step #6. Now, go back to the settings and disable airplane mode.

    Step #7. For the most part, you will see a notification that says "your carrier may charge for SMS" - press OK

    Step #8. If this is not the case, go to Messages, disable iMessage and then turn on again.

    Step #9. In a few moments, iMessage should be enabled.

    Step #10. You will see a greyed number and e-mail ID. A little later, the number should be checked, and that's all.


    3 Apple ID disconnect, connect

    Sometimes, you just need to logout of your identifier Apple and then sign in again.

    Step #1. Under Settings → Message, scroll up to where it says 'Send and receive'and tap on it.

    Step #2. Type on the Apple ID, then tap Sign Out.

    Step #3. Now turn off iMessage.

    Step #4. Wait for a while (toggle Wifi) and then turn on the iMessage.

    Step #5. Enter the details of your Apple ID now and try to reactivate iMessage

    4. set or restore

    If things do not work, you must first reset the settings of your location, then the iPhone. Reset is just a force so restart your data stays secure. After the reset, you will just connect with your Apple and implementing iMessage like new.

    If this fails, you may need to restore the iPhone as new or from a backup.

    Hope this helps,

    See you soon.
