    I had this issue after I accidentally removed my apple id, or signed out under iMessage.

    Unfortunately, I had to do a full restore of the phone, but thankfully iCloud kept all the important info and I was able to boot it just fine!

    This may sound last-resortish, but it's the only thing that worked for me.
