Is anyone else experiencing problems with iMessage? On my iPhone 5, I have not been able to utilize the iMessage service since installing the 6.1.3 update. In the "Messages" setting, my phone just continues to present the message "Waiting for activation." Of course, I am not able to use Facetime at all. I am not able to send text messages to other iPhone users unless I completely turn off the iMessage feature altogether. After googling this issue, I've read that there are quite a number of iPhone users experiencing this same issue. However, I also have read several testimonials stating that Apple is refusing to acknowledge that this issue even exists. Several suggested fixes have been posted online. However, none of the fixes that I tried seemed to restore my iMessage functionality.

Since getting the update on my iphone 4, the music I've bought from itunes won't play!? I can select a song but all that would happen is it would jump around selecting lots of different songs as if its on shuffle and doesnt actually play the song itself.

Please help

How about doing some real updates?
where are
-notification tab
-sms notifications (received or not by the receiver)
-possibility to chose a song for ringtone (not 40 sec crap by passing a labyrinth in i tunes.
-possibility for usb file transfer, I dont like to fight with itunes everytime.
- to archive sms,note etc to computer, to be able to see them in the computer
-shortcuts for wifi,fly mode etc.
where are those ?? enough with these empty update boxes of yours.

Only to sync with my car or bluetooth headset. ive always used wifi, or any app like one before mentioned (facebook, dropbox, whatsapp, etc)... if i find myself with no data available, i wait until i do have data to transfer whatever i need to transfer. also, i know of no one who uses it mainly for sharing files... so, yeah, bluetooth sharing is not that in right now like it was before.
