Hey, So purchased the MacBook Pro in November 2016, and restored in in April, and since then I can't send iMessages unless the number is changed and I add a +44. Chatted with Apple Support; the machine has been restored about six times, and still no solution. It was passed to engineering basic reply: "They stated any resolution for us will come in the form of a future software update, if one can be found here." My issues here; it can't really be software since the machines has been restored countless of times, it can't be my "account" as it works on my old 2008 MacBook and other Macs. Its not just me; had others sign in and they get the same issue. So can it be hardware?
