I just received my iPhone 7, first thing I did was restore from backup and my iMessage wouldn't activate. Just says "an error occurred during activation". I tried every which technique but nothing works. The only thing that worked was setting up the phone as new. It activated but after about an hour of use it's back to the same thing. It's driving me crazy! I've been fighting with it for the past couple hours. It was all working just fine all day on my SE.
