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.

    • It’s a neat and seemingly valid / effective strategy that, at least from my understanding, is only really used by VZW
    • Those are usually left over from the initial AWS deployment, so all run B13/B66 with support for BC0/BC1 (although that’s been shut off on most sites). No NR. Sites with the later Ericsson radios got an OTA update and broadcast B2. On those sites, a B5 OTA update was also available (and tested), but ultimately rolled back. Putting up all that power/spectrum severely degraded the B13 output.  The site atop Crystal Mountain is another story and uses the same setup as the site on the ridge near Neilton. These antennas were selected for their vertical beamwidth. Most modern directional antennas have small vertical beamwidths and would require extreme downtilt to cover the road next to a steep ridge. Thus, they would have a severely limited coverage footprint beyond the road. Omnis can be a better choice in these instances, especially when there’s LoS to the coverage objective (since they’ll generally have lower gain figures). Omnis also don’t run in to the horizontal sector edge problem, which can be difficult to optimize for with directional antennas that have complex or irregular 3D gain profiles. That’s why on a lot of sites on mountains, you’ll see wider antennas used. For example, the Verizon site on Joyce Ridge has three sectors with 80-degree HBW antennas. 
    • Do you know what RAN is behind those Omni's? LTE (bands?) are they pushing any NR through them? Very curious   edit: I guess I could check cellmapper etc but you might know more nuance!
    • N41 here has been expanded from 140Mhz to 180Mhz.  Speeds seem the same so they just need to work on backhaul
    • I noticed today that T-mobile has shut of B41 LTE in the Louisville area and widened the 2nd n41 carrier to 80MHz. That just leaves them with 5x5 B12, 10x10 B2, and two 10x10 B66 carriers on LTE, everything else is in NR (besides their 2G network). They have 20x20 n71, 20x20 n25, 5x5 n25, and 180MHz n41.
