    This is getting bizarre. I have been trying for hours to activate IMessage, keep getting check your network connection and try again.
    My network connection is just fine.

    Can someone please tell me what is going on.

    I can't activate iMessage on my iPhone 4S after updating to IOS 7. It did work on previous IOS versions.

    Only one fix...... backup to iTunes; do Erase and Reset All Data; setup as new iPhone; restore from backup.

    That's what I did after 20 hours w/o activating FT and iMessage. Works fine now.
