iMessage “Waiting for Activation” error Sometimes got and sometimes it works  perfectly, but sometimes unpredictable execution makes us crazy. To resolve iMessage “Waiting for Activation”, There are quite a lot of fixes optional almost everywhere but most of it doesn’t work. That’s what prompted us to test with a lot of iPhones and we ended up imessage waiting for activation successfully.

Before You Start To Fix iMessage “Waiting for Activation” Issue on iPhone running iOS 10, iOS 9, or iOS 8.x:

Make sure in the Phone app, you’ve got your number listed. On top of ‘Contacts,’ you should see your number listed. If not, you’ll need to go to Settings → Phone → My Number and enter your number.

Similarly, go to Settings → FaceTime → and make sure you have selected both your phone number and Apple ID under You Can Be Reached by FaceTime At.

Make sure Date & Time are correct. Set to “Set Automatically” make sure the Time Zone is correct and the iPhone holds the right time.

Also, make sure you’ve got a working network. Wi-Fi issues can cause iMessage waiting for activation problems so have cellular enabled.

For some users, the message sent out for activation goes out as an international SMS.

Check out Internet Connection

Both iMessage and FaceTime require a very good internet connection to work properly. Hence, make sure your internet connection is up to the mark.

Open Settings → Wi-Fi/Cellular → turn off the switch, reboot your device and turn on Wi-Fi/Cellular.

Try to reset network settings. It will delete all the existing network setting and return them to factory settings.

Settings → General → Reset → Reset Network Settings.

Step #8. If not, go to Messages, turn OFF iMessage and then turn it ON again.

Step #9. In a short while, iMessage should get activated.

Step #10. You’ll see a grayed out number and an email ID. A little later, the number should be checked and that’s it.

Step #2. Tap on About. If there is any update available, you will get the option to update it.
