No, I'm not still using an iPhone 3GS ;). I've upgraded to the 5s now. However I still have a reason to be using iMessage on the 3GS. It was working until last month, when things started getting strange and no message would send or come in. We tried logging out and back in, but now I get an activation problem when trying to set iMessage back up in settings. I even tried creating a new apple ID on, but I still get that activation error when trying to sign into iMessage.

I assume Apple finally cut this off, but if not has anyone found a fix? Figured it was worth asking.
