    Hi All,

    I just updated my 5S to iOS 7.1.2 and did a full reset which I do after each update. Since this reset I'm unable to activate iMessages or Facetime.

    It shows 'Waiting for activation' and also I received several messages from a US or UK number saying "REG-RESP?a bunch of numbers and letters".

    Any idea what to do? :(

    Gotta be in it to win it
    you could try signing out of iMessage and then signing back in.

    You know, I've been having an iMessage problem as well. I can get on but I can't send photos. For some reason, they always go from "delivered" to "delivery failed."

    I have also been having issues that I cannot explain, but I was chalking it up to the Pangu jailbreak.

    I had this issue too. Hit reset all settings and it activated.

    Thanks all! I spoke to Apple and they instructed me to switch cellular data and activate iMessage while connected to WiFi. Did it and it activated a few mins later!
