    Default iPhone 3 won't activate

    This is a new phone I set up just for texting. Fairly new at this.
    Has no sim.
    imessage is on, I haveSMS on anyway in case I get one.
    MMS is on.
    It is on in the imessage window waiting for activation for an hour now.
    Have I missed a setting??
    I do have wireless and it is connected.

    Thanks

    To activate iMessage without a SIM card you will have to enable iMessage using your Apple ID.

    Thank you for reply.
    I do have an apple id, but something is wrong there.
    I type in the password when prompted, the box in the screen gives a little wiggle and nothing happens.
    I believe it is not accepting the password.
    I am going to start over with a new apple ID.

    Instead of making a new Apple ID, resetting your password might help.
    Wiggling screen means you're entering the wrong password.
