    Installed iOS 5 GM on my iPhone 4. It stay on "waiting for activation.." for almost 30 minutes now. I kept on re-activating it and its still the same. Anyone having the same problem?

    iOS 5 is already being leeched to the public? I thought it was still in beta?

    Has anyone had luck getting iMessage to activate? I just upgraded my iPod and iPad to iOS5 and can't get it to activate.... it is working fine on my iPhone but I have been using it on that for a while now.

    So for anyone who comes across this... my issue was caused by having restriction on that disable facetime and camera. If you have those disabled in restrictions it doesn't allow imessage to function.
