All the apple lovers who are facing problems with iMessage “waiting for activation” can now relax! We have found the right way to fix this problem, so do not worry. After reading the paragraph below, your issue will be fixed!

It would be best if you sorted out some things on your own before activating the iMessage. First of all, you need to make sure that the number on your Phone app is listed. Open the Phone app to see that. If it is not listed, then go to Settings->Phone->My Number and then enter your number there. Then again, go to settings->FaceTime-> select both your Apple ID and phone number on which you are reachable. One more thing you need to make sure is that your date and time are correct. There should be no Wi-Fi issues. Otherwise, the iMessage will not activate.

You can start by checking out your network connection. You can contact your carrier to see whether there are any limiting conditions on your iMessage, blocks, filters, etc. if not, you can try the airplane mode method. If nothing of this works, you can update your iPhone’s carrier settings. Or you can sign out and sign in your Apple ID.
