    Hi all,

    I have a unique situation. I have a verizon iphone 4 that has been deactivated. I have been trying to get it to use imessage but have had some bad luck. I am running into a few problems. Namely my messages prioritizing themselves as SMS and not imessages, thus not going through.

    I am connected to wifi, and even with my networks enabled I still can't get a connection. I would prefer to use it in airplane mode with only wifi turned on, since there is no point in wasting battery searching for networks I can't connect to, but that hasn't worked either. It won't even let my type up a message.

    Yes I have imessage enabled. Yes I have "send as SMS if imessage fails?" disabled. I know the people I'm sending messages to have ios5. I would like to do it in airplane mode, but it seems like that isn't an option? Anyone have any ideas?

    Airplane mode turns off all radio communications, including WiFi.

    You can manually re-enable wifi. Like I said, I've pretty much done everything right.
