I just upgraded to a 4S iphone and am giving my 3GS to my son to use as an iPod. I've created an email for him so he can iMessage but it won't receive/send through his email. I've changed every setting I can find. I think its trying to use the phone number even though its no longer has phone service which is why its giving the "Message Send Failure"
I already had iMessage turned on from when I was using the phone as a phone... I created the email and verified it through Apple as an email I want associated with my Apple ID. I went into Settings>Messages>Receive At and added his email address but it won't let me delete my phone number (which is now tied to another iPhone device). I also turned off Send as SMS.I also went to Settings>Messages>Receive At> Caller ID and changed the check mark to be next to his email instead of my number.
I went in the Settings>General>Network and turned off 3G and Cellular Data settings (which I don't think were affecting this, but should be off anyway if he's using it as an iPod.)
I tried going to Settings>Phone and deleting my number out but it won't let the blank remain empty. I tried changing the number to 0 (zero) and then when I opened messages again it immediate popped up a message saying "MMS Messaging Requires Your Phone Number Press Settings to go to your Phone Settings and enter your phone number"
The only thing I haven't done is add this email to the Mail settings, because I really don't want him receiving or sending emails, I only want him to be able to text his grandma, cousins, his dad and me. But I'm wondering if the fact that I haven't actually entered his email account password anywhere (like in a pop server?) is why it isn't working.
The internet/LTE on my iphone has stopped working for everything besides phone, iMessage, Facetime (email, safari, and facebook all say they need internet access).Â I've reset my network, did a soft reset (home and power button). I have internet connectivity since I can do video facetime. What are my next steps to get safari working
So I have had my iPhone 4 jailbroken ever since it came out on 4.0.1 and facetime never seems to work ever since then. I knew there was a problem when it first came out, but I thought it got fixed, but nothing worked. Is there a way I can get this working?
I'm trying to start a facetime call with another person and having all sorts of issues.my iPhone is wi-fi only, with airplane mode turned on. I'm doing this because I'm out of the country and don't want to use cellular out of the US. My understanding is that as long as I have Wi-fi, I should be able to use facetime, but every call I make fails.I also tried having someone facetime me from the US and they're not able to complete the connection either. These failers happened between 2 iphones, both on wi-fi.I have been able to make facetime calls in the US but this is the first time I've tried in Brazil.
So I just noticed that I can now "FaceTime" others even though I am opt out from SMS/MMS. Under the phone settings I no longer have "Waiting for Activation" either. I'm guessing they someone how provisioned the "FaceTime" SMS to go through much like AT&T's own messages. Anyone else seeing the same results?
The mobile number entered for facetime and imessage in 'verifying' state for ever. It also charged 3-4 times for international sms but still my mobile number is not activated for imessage and facetime. This service is not available for India.
I have recently got the iphone 4s brand new tried calling my friend who also got the same but when contacting via FaceTime we can only see our own face not each other. Please help figure this out. We are both in uk.
A couple of days ago i installed 3g unrest. from cydia. i tried facetime while a friend was on wifi. no luck then i uninstalled 3g unrest. and facetime still wont work on wifi. facetime starts but wont connect. if someone facetimes me it will say connecting but it never connects. any1 else had this problem? HAS ANYONE FIXED IT?!
I updated my iphone 4s to ios 5.1.1 around noon today, ever since, my facetime and imessenger will not work. I have turned my phone on and off a number of times nothing has changed, even turned imessenger off and on. but still nothing. When in the messages settings imessenger is on, and receiving at 2 addresses. E-mail is bold and Phone number is grey?
When I got the second iphone, I am facing so many problem with iphone such as face time is not working, icloud is not working, iphone is not synchronized with itune. I have create a new id. I have reset my phone 4 times. I have read many article in this forum. But everything doesn't work.
how I can get my iMessage and Facetime working again? I have an iPhone 4S with it on airplane mode and wireless on. It was working fine and then like magic, it says "waiting for activation". I am studying abroad in England and it goes in and out.
When making or receiving voice calls via my network operator's service, no one can hear me, i.e my audio input. I can hear the person on the other end of the phone fine but they can't hear me whatsoever. However when I use the likes of viber, skype and facetime, my audio input is perfectly fine and the person on the other end of can hear me. Note both viber and skype calls work just fine and 2 way communication is audible regardless if I have a 3G or Wifi connection. Plus I have full signal bar strength when near a mobile tower so that eliminates antenna issues. Also have taken alternative turns to cover both the top mic and the bottom mic during a viber or skype call and my audio input can still be heard. I've done a reset, a hard reset of the phone and a reset of the network settings, still to no avail. Have updated iOS to the latest version 5.1.1.
i have i phone 5 about 2 years now , just yesterday i found the rear cam not working , black screen and show the last pic in camera roll in the left side , while the front cam (secondary cam ) working.
I changed the iCloud account on my iPhone 3gs because my friend gave me her old one and it won't let me use my email address for iMessaging. It was her email address so I changed it to mine and all it says now is waiting for activation.
Since upgrading to iOS 5.1, iMessage service does not seem to be working. Messages still go out as texts but these are limited in size due to SMS restrictions (and they get split up), have trouble with attachments, etc.). Basically, iMessaging is great and superior to SMS in so many ways and before I upgraded, it worked. Now it doesn't seem to be working. This is frustrating. I have tried a hard reboot but that doesn't seem to have solved the problem for me. Any ideas? Does anyone know if this is related to the new iOS ver. or is it Apple iMessage service related?
