iMessage not working on iPhone 4S

Hi Everyone,

 

When I first had my iPhone 4S about a year ago imessage worked fine but after a while it just stopped working.

 

I'm currently on iOS 5.1.1.

 

Anyone have a solution to this issue or know what the problem might be? 

 

Thanks!

Apparently this is a known problem. This should help fix the problem.

Re: iMessage not working on iPhone 4S

Frustrating!
Maybe one of these things will work:

 

 - Good old battery pull & reboot 

 - Go to settings -> Messages. If iMessage is "on”, just switch off & on again.  

 - Go to settings -> Turn off the "show subject field" setting

 - Turn "Face time" off under Settings -> General -> Restrictions 


I also found this "step by step" guide on apple forum:

1) Turn off WiFi
2) Turn on Cellular Data
3) Turn off iMessage
4) Turn phone off
5) Turn phone on
6) Turn iMessage on
7) Test iMessages
8) Turn WiFi on.


Install a different version of iOS :smileyhappy:

 

If all else fails -> Call Apple support. Hopefully they can fix the problem for you!
