    Default Working FaceTime & iMessage(gevey unlocked NO jailbreak)
    *Ok I got it working last night and tested it all today and it still works.*
    Things needed 1.wifi 2. Another FaceTime ready device
    Turn on wifi*
    Turn off FaceTime and iMessage
    Turn facetime and imessage back on
    Make sure you have your email for activation set
    Make sure both are "waiting for activation"
    Turn phone off then back on
    Do not unlock with gevey just make a FaceTime call to your email from another device. I used my MacBook pro
    In message app create a new message and type in an email address of someone who has iMessage. The send button should turn blue and iMessage title on top. You should be able to send it to yourself too
    You can now unlock with gevey *
    This morning I tested them both again and they still work. Even though they both say activation unsuccessful.*

    I don't see why not. I would try pulling sim out while you do it. Then put it back in when all works.

    i think the key is making the iMessage and face time call immediately after.try turning off both,then reboot phone ,then turn both back on and immediately make FaceTime call to your device and send iMessage.
    oh yea make sure your wifi is on and connected.

    Worked for me. Thanks a ton. I am using Gevey sim and am on a Indian provider. The only issue I faced was that after doing all this, iTunes was not recognizing the sim card because the sim was not showing WildcardActivated. Followed this link to fix it:
    Fix SAM Error: SIM Card Not Does Not Appear to be Supported | Jaxov
    After that, everyting fell into place.......thanks again

    Is this method to use your actually number to iMessage and FaceTime or is it just using your email to send? Mine says unsuccessful but I can use my email to send out iMessage and FaceTime and would rather it be my phone number.

    I'm using gevey unlock
