Does anyone know why iMessage doesn't just verify the number attached to the Apple ID? It just stays there loading and loading. I know it works because it magically worked so I could receive the messages from my number to this iPhone also but when a restore happened everything went to ****. it works on my iPod 4th generation easily also. I just signed in and my number was already there. I've tried resetting, restoring, updating, and restoring from the cloud even. what gives?
