    I have the same issue since last Saturday after I've done a DFU Restore on my iPhone 5

    Restoring the device, restoring network settings and nothing else helped to me :(

    I had this issue a couple of weeks ago. Went on for a couple hours and made me go nuts + ruined my saturday :D

    Anyway, I fixed it by changing so settings in the myappleid.com menu (that website). After changing like my country and address it suddenly worked again!

    By the way: Hallöchen aus Berlin! ;) (cuz your phone is in German :D)

    Yeah I don't know. It just helped for some reason. Somewhere there is a forum out there where a user had the same problem and that helped as well.

    I've tried restoring my phone, restoring network settings, changing my location, changing my Apple password, changing my address on my apple account and still the same "Auf Aktivierung warten" (waiting for activation)

    :(

    Ps: greetings from Austria :p

    Did you got any answer SMS or reactivated iMessage?

    Um not sure who or what that is exactly but sounds suspicious to me. Apple activates the iMessage service not some random "service" wanting money. Try turning on MMS messaging and see if it will activate then.

    Yeah keep us updated. It's a pity, none of this solutions have worked for you. It worked for a lot of people. Apple has serious issues concerning iMessage activation, between versions. Best luck.
