    I've been all over google and can't fix this. My account is fine. Time zone is fine. I have every email and phone number hooked up to iMessages and it still won't activate. My face time works too. What the heck else could be wrong?!?!

    Yes. I couldn't get the message saying that it was waiting if I didn't. I've tried resetting it. Resending the email. Rebooting. Everything myself and google can think of so far.

    Guess that wouldn't be a bad idea. Have to redo everything but its worth a shot.

    I am assuming you're trying to use it on Sprint's network as well, right?

    This is very unusual behavior. I've had this occur on iOS 6.1.x personally (FaceTime or iMessage activates normally, but only the first one I try. The second will hang at "Waiting for Activation..." until Settings.app is killed, then only the e-mail addresses will be activated). However for me, a reboot would resolve this issue--the other service would show up as "activated" after that reboot.

    It may just be a pernicious iOS bug. If you'd like, you can install this debugging profile on your iPhone and enable both logging switches in Settings -> Messages. Then you can view the logs generated via Xcode. It may not be the most helpful process, but it might provide some insight...

    I have debugging tools. And yes everything else works such as FaceTime. I don't have an option to resend a verification email now.
