    Have you tried restarting your iPhone? Regular turn OFF with slide, then turn back ON.

    Yeah or if a regular reset doesnt work try a hard reset (hold top and home button until phone completly shuts off)

    iMessage has outages and interruptions like everything else.

    how long so some of these issues last before they attempt to fix. app store is down and so is this. i dont have apple care so they didnt care when i called.

    Have you checked your settings to see if iMessage is turned on?

    I don't remember what I was doing, but I changed some setting unrelated to iMessage, and it turned iMessage off too. Forgot which one it was.

    Also check in settings, messages and see if Send and Receive is your phone number and not an email address.
