[iPhone 4] iMessage “Waiting for Activation” Error on iPhone

Messages recommandés

Tired of iMessage waiting for activation issue? Or is it just draining the last ounce of patience left in you?

Despite our ‘been there done that’ experience, we’re equally skeptic about how to activate iMessage. Sometimes it works just perfectly, but sometimes it drives us crazy. There are quite a lot of fixes recommended almost everywhere but most of it doesn’t work. That’s what prompted us to test with a lot of iPhone 4 and we ended up activating iMessage successfully.


Before You Start To Fix iMessage “Waiting for Activation” Issue

Before you start trying out all these methods to get iMessage activated, you’ll need to sort these things out:

  • Make sure in the Phone app, you’ve got your number listed. On top of ‘Contacts’ you should see your number listed (My Number:). If not, you’ll need to go to Settings -> Phone -> My Number and enter your number.
  • Make sure Date & Time (under General) are correct. Set to ‘Set Automatically’ make sure the Time Zone is correct and the iPhone holds the right time.
  • Also make sure you’ve got a working network. Wi-fi issues can cause iMessage activation problems so have cellular enabled.
    For some users, the message sent out for activation goes out as an international SMS. Make sure your carrier permits these and you have sufficient amount to send them.

1. Airplane Mode
As strange as it sounds, may be 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 solves, that’d be good, right?

Bước 1:  Tắt iMessage (và FaceTime)

Bước 2:  Bật chế độ Airplane. Wifi sẽ thể tắt tự động.

Bước 3:  Turn ON Wifi

Bước 4:  Quay trở lại tin nhắn và bật lên iMessage

Bước 5:  Bạn sẽ được nhắc nhở cho Apple ID của bạn nếu bạn chưa thêm nó được nêu ra. (Khác, bạn không nhận được bất kỳ thông báo)

Bước 6:  Bây giờ, quay trở lại Settings và tắt chế độ máy bay.

Bước 7:  Chủ yếu, bạn sẽ được hiển thị một thông báo nói rằng 'tàu sân bay của bạn có thể tính phí cho tin nhắn SMS - Tap OK

Bước 8:  Nếu không, hãy vào tin nhắn, TẮT iMessage và sau đó biến nó trở lại nữa.

Bước 9:  . Trong một thời gian ngắn, iMessage nên được kích hoạt

Bước 10:  Bạn sẽ thấy một số màu xám và một ID email . Một lát sau, số lượng cần được kiểm tra và đó là nó.

2. Apple ID Sign-out, Sign-in
Sometimes, you just need to sign-out of your Apple ID and then login again.

Step 1: Under Settings -> Message, scroll down to where it says ‘Send & Receive’ and tap on it

3. Reset, Or Restore
If things don’t work, you’ll first need to reset your location settings, then the iPhone. Reset is just a forced reboot so your data remains safe. After the reset, you’ll just login with your Apple ID and set up iMessage as new.

Should this fail, you might have to restore the iPhone as new or from a backup.

Apple tries to let users enjoy a seamless iMessage experience but one thing that’s clear is that setting up and activating iMessage doesn’t usually work smoothly for all users. Try these methods and let us know if any of it worked. And we’re looking for more solutions too so let us know.

Thanks for sharing the methods to fix iMessage waiting for activation error.  Since Airplane mode can help iPhone users to get rid of "Waiting for activation" message and restore iPhone to normal, maybe I can try this function in next time when I suffer from iMessage not activating issue.
