Yeah...that's because it needs to be updated. I updated and unlocked 4.1 Saturday night and ran into the same problem. Again though...Tango will work with no problems, even on 4.1. To me it's a better alternative, no hacking required and works cross-platform.
Wait...nevermind...it's been updated...I'll mess with it and report back!
Won't activate for me either. Seems its because Limera1n hactivated the phone. This apparently prevents mitime from working. Bummer...tango it is.
Of course...4.2 is slated for November...Just make a mental note to not hactivate when the jailbreak and unlocks are out for that one. Okay...fourth merge...I'm done.

So does anyone know yet why my iPhone would try multiple times to send a text message to +1 (312) 772-3612 but then just display unable to send message with an error 106?
Strange- didn't happen before when I would turn FaceTime on- before there was no response just a waiting for activation and now this ?

rumor is Viber also sends the same sms to +447786205094? so is facetime and or Viber safe??

So is there no way to enable Facetime just to use with Macs, iPads, and iPods? I really don't care about iPhone to iPhone 4

This is clearly an international issue and Apple should be doing something to resolve the issue. Given the seemingly minor things that are considered newsworthy regarding the iPhone surely this should be given front page coverage?
I've been using my iPhone 4 on T-Mobile Germany for over a year and never been charged for this. We moved to Vodafone DE on Saturday and within 10 minutes we were billed €1.29 between us in SMS charges to the UK. If this is a fundamental service of the iPhone and does not require GSM services to run then activation via an SMS message is compeltely unacceptable IMO. Thankfully Vodafone have agreed to credit this back to us this time but I doubt that will always be the case. It's not really their fault as it's an Apple mechanisim but it does bother me that they haven't provided an alternative number in Germany for registration. It's possible, as other countries have done it, but it seems the German providers send out carrier updates with only the UK number in them. If the providers aren't going to supply a registration number in their country then they shouldn't be charging you international SMS charges as I see it! They won't t hough as they can profiteer from this system as it stands.
Apple need to change the activation mechanisim to allow e-mail based activation, just as it is in the iPod touch 4 as an option. Otherwise they need to be crediting all iPhone 4 owners with the SMS charges they pay out for this basic function!

I'm in Australia and I just had a charge to this same international SMS number. I just turned on facetime recently also so it doesn't matter where in the world you are it will always go to that international number if you turn on facetime.

I unlock my iphone 4s and i used it with a company for a couple hours i got charge for some international text that i dint do actually its the same numbers that someone post before they all start with 44. I call the company and they told me the charged are valid and that i have to pay them. I cancel the line the same day since they dint fix the bill for me
