iMessage issues.

What's up guys, the past couple of days I have been having problems with iMessage on my i5. Running software version 6.1.2, with jailbreak.

 

All of my messages were going thru as text instead of iMessages. I went to messaging settings and it said that iMessage was "waiting on activation". I turned iMessage on and off 3 times and it finally starts working again. I wonder if this is jailbreak related or if something funky just started happening with iMessage itself. I haven't had this problem before, and it came out of nowhere on mine and my wife's i5.

 

I don't think it is signal related, because it is doing it on wifi as well. All I know is it is aggrivating!!

I turned iMessage off by it is annoying on 3G. Just doesn't work.

I generally don't have an issue at all on 3G here using it. It's just been the past couple of days. It's been "waiting on activation" whatever that means lol. iMessage uses such small amounts of data. Even in slow service areas It usually works well for me :(

I have the rare problem with iMessage on EVDO, and it works decent on 1x. But picture messaging sure doesn't. And I'm jailbroken on 6.1.2 as well.

Did you turn on two factor authorization maybe?

 

I don't have any issues with iMessage. In fact at my apartment that works and MMS doesn't.

I didn't change anything that I know of. It's weird...because now it has been steady without issue all night last night and so far today. (Scratches head) and I agree, when I'm on wifi iMessage usually works better than SMS and mms. Just the last 3 days have been rough, without a clear reason why. I will keep an eye on it. If It comes back and I figure it out, I will post. Thanks guys.

Do you have a Mac? Did you install the just-released 10.8.4 ML update? There were some changes made to the OS X client. Sign out of iMessage on all your devices and then sign back in.

 

It's funny how quick people are to blame "the jailbreak". If evasi0n caused an issue with iMessage there would be a huge backlash and it would be all over the tech news sites. If anything, your device may be experiencing a problem with a buggy app or tweak you installed - but it almost certainly has nothing to do with the jailbreak itself.

I do have an iMac. It did an update last week. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with it or not. As I never use iMessage on the Mac. I do however use it on the iPad. I did what u recommended and logged out of iMessage and apple altogether and signed back in.

 

On a side note I wasn't blaming evasi0n. I love the jailbreak. I just didn't know what caused the issue(still really don't) and mentioned the jail break because it is an important piece of the puzzle here.

My wife's 4s was having issues during the same time period and I have her phone on 6.1.2 (not jailbroken). She was having issues even when on wifi; everything was coming through on her iPad though which is 6.1.3. I signed her out of iMessage all together, waited about a half hour then singed back in - seemed to work - But could have just been cooincidental. I'm thinking there was something on Apple's end with 6.1.2 devices?

So I did some experimenting here....I just logged my iPad 3 (running iOS 6.1.3) back into iMessage to see what would happen.

 

As soon as I went to send an iMessage to my wife from my i5, my iMessage when screwy again. I'm rely starting to wonder if being logged into two iOS devices with different software versions, is the culprit here.

 

Logged iPad back out and iMessage "activation" issue went away again... Hmmmmm

Could be. I have both an iPad 2 and a iPhone 5 and have no issue with iMessage on them. However, my iMac can't run 10.8 so I don't have the opportunity to use it on my desktop.

    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
    • Did some exploring yesterday/last night and didn't find a shred of C-Band, including with my brand new US Mobile SIM. Did find 4CA CBRS but the site seemed backhaul constrained; both that plus 15x15 B2 and band-locked 2/66 got me 190 Mbps or so.
    • Did some more exploring yesterday/last night and I think I spotted some LAA downtown but didn't get a chance to confirm before it went away in favor of mmW, which also went away pretty quickly. Also saw another n66 site, as well as an n2 site, making AT&T the second carrier to run n2 DSS within a few miles of me. I think at this point they won't be able to advertise anything flashy, but due to the sheer amount of CA they're throwing at customers here they can keep their network at 50+ Mbps until they can deploy both 3.45 and 3.7, and that's probably enough.
