    Whenever I sign in to iMessage on my Mac, it says "Your Apple ID can't be used to set up iMessage at this time.", and then it tells me to contact support and use a code (unfortunately, my country isn't listed on the support list they have).

    I can use iMessage just fine on my iPhone, but can't get it to work on my Mac (although it used to work before, I just haven't opened it in months). Anyone know how I can fix this?

    Go to the apple site My Apple ID and see if you can log in. Then if you can log in immediately change your password. Wait for about 30 minutes and change the password on all your iCloud password able programs and System Preferences pane.

    I'm having the same problem. Worked fine one day, then just quietly locked me out the next. Changing the AppleID password didn't help anything though.
