Try logging out of iMessage and FaceTime (or even remove your iCloud account completely) on your iPhone. After you're all signed out, go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Try signing into iMessage after it boots back up and see if you get any further..... if that doesn't do anything last resort is do a complete restore (do NOT restore a backup - just start fresh, your stuff is all up on iCloud anyway, just remember to pull your photos/videos off via USB if you're not using iCloud Photo Library) and see if that works.

I don't think a complete restore will be necessary here. Try signing out from iMessage and Facetime and App store and iCloud. I think you will have your solution by then.
