1. iMessage still showing, waiting for activation. Whats wrong ?

How do I activate it ?
And its selecting my email. How do I change it to my number ?


2. I have seen many people telling Siri, hey send a text to my wife.

How does Siri know, who is the wife ?

Is there a settings to setup a contact a spouse ?

you tell siri "_______ is my wife, GOT IT?!?"

Siri will say "yes, yes, I got it... please don't throw me across the room again"

(at least that's how it went for me...)

Yes, in contacts u can specify ur relationship to that person (ie Spouse).

My iMessage did the same exact thing last week. It happened to be a network glitch at work. My Internet wifi worked fine, and their were no other issues. But everyone with iPhones lost iMessage. I tried resetting it to no avail. As soon as I left my office and it switched over to 3G, everything went back to normal.

In message settings there is a clear indication where u want iMessages to come from. Its right on the same page where u see the activation. BUT I don't think u can see it unless iMessage is working properly. Once it comes back up the option to use ur # will be right there.

I've seen this problem posted numerous times and simply turning it off and back on solved it most of the time.

if you are not on an official carrier, then it won't work unfortunately.

(at least from my experience)

my friend here in Canada wasn't able to get iMessage to activate his number on his line. he's running his iPhone on a carrier that doesn't sell the iPhone.
