    Got an IPhone X, FaceTime was working perfectly, then i had to leave my phone to my carrier for softoware restore during some crashes with Portrait mode on Camera, ever since they returned it to me factory restored i am stuck on Waiting for activation when trying to use FaceTime. Any ideas?

    Sign out of iMessage, FaceTime and iTunes/App Store. Then, re-sign back into them.

    Itunes/App store singing out doesn't do a thing. I dont know how to sing out of Facetime i've never signed in to startwith

    I meant turn off iMessage and keep FaceTime off. Try restart, attempt to turn on iMessage and then FaceTime.

    Is this my carrier's problem or is it the phone. I had my phone left to my carrier and they performed reinstall of the softroware ( i belive recovered it thourgh itunes), ever since numerous bugs keep happeing.

    I checked apple suggestions nothing works. So i should call my carrier right? Because i am using my phone number not my apple id for my FaceTime and imessages, or atleast thats how i am understanding it, so the problem should be with the carrier?

    I'd follow what's suggested in Apple's support documentation.

    Sounds like it all worked itself out.

    i believe, it could be due the fact i changed my phone number the other day. Maybe itt took some time for it to reactivate :)
