iMessage and FaceTime Down for Some, No Estimate on Service Restoration Yet




iMessage and FaceTime are both offline for "some users", according to Apple's iCloud System Status page.

The outage began just after noon Pacific time today, and the company has not given any indication of when service will be restored. Affected users will see iMessages fail to send and FaceTime calls fail to connect.

No iMessage with sprint on the east coast in pa.
Tried rebooting but no go. :\

I wonder if this has anything to do with my new iPhone 4S rebooting all by itself yesterday. It was like a quick boot then apple then ready in 20 seconds. Never seen that before.
Maybe the gov made apple put sw on our phones so to snoop. ? That required a reboot to install.

Switched off iMessages awhile ago today. I'm in Phoenix AZ. The Internet is definitely having issues everywhere around here as well.

Ah, that explains it. I was just trying to figure out why my iPhone was stuck in "waiting for activation" when I tried to turn iMessage off and on again.

I'm on AT&T and have no issue, although a friend on Verizon does. So, for once, it seems like AT&T is not to blame.

Got a FaceTime multi-hour call going between Canada and Singapore right now. Working great, no problems. Maybe it's just the initial sign-in process that's broken, but established connnections aren't affected.

The video and audio quality, and connection handling is better than Skype.
