just installed 11.3 public beta 2, and my messages app is unhappy; slow to open, only latest texts show... when they finally do show. the message indicator does not change. am not synced thru icloud. anyone else? have reported it, but thinking not everyone is experiencing this. is anyone? any ideas? --- Post Merged, Feb 7, 2018 --- am noticing, in settings, when i go to messages, it takes a long time to open the window; then, i can't sign in to messages, it won't validate (am assuming the problem is here)... tries to verify (password IS correct), then, after a really really long time, i get an error: "iMessage Activation: Unable to contact the iMessage server" . tried a few times... EDIT: acting up on my mac as well, so... something with messages in general (or specifically, my account...)... EDIT EDIT! logged in on my phone, but nothing sending, and only very-last text shows per person... and sluggish as can be (seems ok on the mac). again, anyone else having issues?
