    Hope someone can help me out here.. Been facing this weird issue for the past 4 days. I own an iphone 4 and 5 with iOS 6.0.1 and due to some reason i deactivated my imessages the other day and since then i'm not able to register it again with my itunes ID keeps giving me the password error. Following are some of the steps i did in trying to solve this issue but nothing worked.

    1. Reset my password for itunes ID
    2. Erase all contents and settings from the phones and configure imessage again.
    3. date and time set to automatic.
    4. use a different ID on my iphones. But no luck.

    I know for sure that my Itunes ID is working as i've got a macbook pro and imessages configured on that with the same ID... I tried signing in from my ipod and works there aswell...

    A friend of mine signed in using his ID on my iphone and his ID is working on my phone..

    I guess no body really faced this issue. Anyways i called up apple support yesterday and frankly speaking they were shocked to hear this aswell. About after an hour of trying to troubleshoot the issue the call was redirected to one of the senior consultants at apple and he had no clue whats causing it so now he forwarded the issue to the engineering team. Am still waiting for them to resolve this.

    I had the exact same problem - I deactivated iMessage yesterday (during the outage) because I thought turning it on and off would fix it, but then it didn't accept the password anymore. It still worked on my iMac, so I was confused, and tried changing it to a password that's easier to type on the iPhone keyboard, but that didn't help either, and now it's not being accepted on my iMac or the iCloud website anymore, either, no matter what I do.

    Googling just turned up the advice to leave it and wait until it works again.

    edit: I just randomly tried the password I had before the outage and it worked. What the heck.
