    Angry Imessage and facetime not working on restored iphone 4
    Hello everyone, i had an iphone 4 which i had custom 5.1.1 hacktivated and working perfectly with facetime and everything! I saw an error message on my phone about springboard crashing which forced me to have to restore 5.1.1 again from itunes with a fresh install.

    NOW IMESSAGE AND FACETIME REFUSE TO WORK! they just say not delivered when i try to send a message or facetime just goes straight to a busy type signal without connecting

    i don't understand what's wrong! Can someone please help me?

    To manually enable iMessage, try to do OFF and restart and then slide to ON

    Please keep in mind that doing this on an unsupported carrier (i.e., a carrier that doesn't offer the iPhone) will most likely incur additional charges, as the activation process involves sending a text to a phone number based out of the UK.

    OP, are you still hacktivated? The first step I'd recommend is obtaining a legitimate activation through iTunes, either using a SIM from the carrier the phone is locked to (even if it's a dead/inactive SIM) or the free tool SAM (available free on Cydia from the Bingner repository). Deactivate using redsn0w or SAM before re-activating your phone.

    UK born, Westmoreland heritage & home with dual citizenship so as good as

    You might wanna check pushfix as well, when I used to hacktivate I got it to work through that... Took a while but it fired through.

    Though SAM should resolve it for you
