    I am not sure what to do here? My FaceTime is on but iMessage won't turn on? I am using unlocked&jailbreak ip4 with tmobile. I used unlock it.co method to use the edge but mms is not working.

    anyone?

    Have the same problem, for now using an apple ID, but would like to use my phone number. Hopefully someone figures this out.

    If it doesnt take your number for imessage check to see if it reads the number correctly from the sim in settings/phone, your iwn number should be there.

    You can also try trurning on airplane mode and off again

    Why would you want to turn imessage on? (consume more batt/ram)?
    If you have an unlimited tx plan, (or were never in fear of going over before 4s), then don't turn on imessage, no need for it -

    Are you jailbroken? If so, you can install tetherme from cydia and that will give you access to the cellular data in settings. If not, there is no way to make the changes.

    Maybe because we're not all in the USA or traveling abroad and your txt plan doesn't cover that...
