    Resolved this already, luckily. I had facetime turned off Under settings>General>restrictions. As soon as i turned that on again, it asked for my facetime login and iMessage login.

    Odd that iMessage should be linked to the facetime settings...


    Has anyone else come across this?

    Within settings, I can slide iMessage to "On", but nothing happens. I get no message about activation, no additional settings options appear. If i then use the messages app or double-tap>close settings it reverts to off! I seem to be completely unable to use iMessage. Everything else in iOS 5 is working fine.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    That's strange; I didn't even need to touch settings for iMessage - it just started sending messages to friends with iOS5 as iMessages.
