    The iMessage thing is probably because the carrier you are using may not support the type of SMS that is required for iMessage to activate with your number. Have you tried setting up iMessage with your email instead?
    I've never used iMessage before, but in Settings -> Messages after sliding Imessage to "on" (where it either states waiting for activation or activation failed) I scrolled down and put my email address in the send and receive area. But when I go to text someone who I know has a working iMessage, it still looks green, like the standard SMS.

    It should give you the option to use your apple id for iMessage/FaceTime. Did you see that option under either of them?

    Yes, but when I click on "send and receive" and delete my email address, my apple ID is still there, but it then says "no addresses"

    I know that with my GPP. To activate FaceTime and iMessage. I had to edit some carrier bundles. Both the carrierlabs one and the unknown carrier bundle. There's an activation gateway setting containing a phone number that an SMS is sent to for activation. If you google for it, you'll find solutions. I can also post exactly what I did for my GPP to work on straight talk once I get home and open my notes.

    Here we go. Using iFunbox, this is exactly what I did to get my 6.1.2 sprint locked 4S to use iMessage on straight talk (AT&T) using a "New GPP".

    Code:
    backup and edit /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/CarrierLab.bundle/carrier.plist
    
    In that file, find the key that looks like this....
    <key>PhoneNumberRegistrationGatewayAddress</key>
    	<string>+447786205094</string>
    
    and change the "<string>+447786205094</string>" to be "<string>28818773</string>"
    
    Then find this key and value:
    <key>RedialOnRRCConnectionFailure</key>
    	<false/>
    
    and change the "<false/>" to be "<true/>"
    
    We're done with that file.
    
    Now backup and edit /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/Unknown.bundle/carrier.plist
    
    Find this key and set of values:
    
    <key>PhoneNumberRegistrationGatewayAddress</key>
    	<array>
    		<string>+447537410207</string>
    		<string>+447537410217</string>
    		<string>+447537410227</string>
    		<string>+447537410237</string>
    		<string>+447537410247</string>
    		<string>+447537410257</string>
    		<string>+447537410267</string>
    		<string>+447537410277</string>
    		<string>+447537410287</string>
    		<string>+447537410297</string>
    	</array>
    
    And replace "<array> ... ... ... ... ... ... </array>" with "<string>28818773</string>"
    
    
    And if you don't want to have the popup that warns that SMS messages may cost money when activating iMessage/FaceTime, then find this key:
    
    <key>RegistrationOptInRequired</key>
    	<true/>
    
    And replace the "<true/>" with "<false/>"
    Also, don't make the mistake I did. If you're trying to edit a file in iFunbox, don't just double click it in iFunbox and save the result. That just saves to some temp file that's not on the phone. You need to copy to your computer, edit there, then copy back. And be sure to keep a backup.

    Thanks for posting this. I have never used ifunbox so I will have to research how to do the edits you speak of.

    Well it doesn't have to necessarily be iFunBox. Any filesystem browser/editor should work. I just vaguely remember reading some warnings against using iFile because it may mess with your carrier bundle symbolic links. I don't have any other information than that.

    Also, forgot to mention in case it wasn't obvious. You need to reboot after editing those files. Then iMessage should activate in approximately 10 minutes.

    EDIT
    - Sorry, I completely misread the filepath you mentioned! Trying what you suggested now.

    EDIT #2
    Thanks Dirk! It worked like a charm.

    BTW - any idea whats going on on the iMessage error?
    I wonder if this will work with a r-sim5+ too?

    I don't have an r-sim5+ or I would give it a shot. They appear to cost about half the price of a 7+, so it would be a great option if it did work.

    Bummer.

    Also, I just found a problem with mine. I no longer receive visual voicemails. I'm not sure if this is a new ios6 setting, but the voicemail area is missing from where you change the APN settings. Have you ever experienced this? Lack of voicemail notification/visual voicemail could definitely be a deal breaker for me.

    No, I have never had visual voicemail. None of the carriers here support it.

    [How To] Check if you can Unlock-img_0004.png[How To] Check if you can Unlock-img_0005.png

    This is the about section of my sprint locked 4s.. I ordered the rsim 7 4 days ago because I am an idiot and didn't see the 7+
    Either way their site claims that the 7 supports unlock & activation on 6.1.2 so I should be ok.

    Also instead of using ifunbox can't I just SSH and edit the bundles that way to solve the imessage and facetime issue?

    Is a bad MEID going to prevent me from being able to activate my phone with AT&T or Straight Talk??

    Last but certainly not least by any means, I am curious which sim card to get. Can I just go to AT&T and get one from them?? I'm going to assume that its pay month to month regardless where the sim comes from?

    Hopefully with the answers to these questions I can be next to post a success story!!

    Sorry for the late reply, but no, you cannot upgrade your iPhone to any firmware newer than iOS 4.2.1.

    Default Can this iPhone 4 be unlocked?
    Hi I'm Alee from Pakistan, I'm mostly an android user (Gnex) but wanted to try a different OS. I'm gonna post a link about a phone and want to know if it can be unlocked and how. Some specs of the phone are :

    Modem Firmware : 4.10.01
    iOS version : 5.1.1
    Carrier : carrier lab 12.0

    Depends on what carrier it is locked to.
