    Unhappy iMessenger not registering/connecting

    Hey guys,
    I just downloaded IOS 5 and got the iMessenger app and am trying to register my username info so that I can start using it but it only gets as far as the screen that says "Registering" with the circle thing going round and round and won't go any further. I've deleted the app, re-installed it, turned the phone off and on 2x but still not working. Any help would be appreciated.

    You deleted iMessage? It's wired into your iOS...

    Try Settings > Messages > and turn iMessage on. Are you registered on iCloud? That's necessary I believe.

    Do you mean turn on MMS? If so, it's already on. I'm trying to set up iCloud but it says to sign into iCloud Settings in IOS5. Does it mean on my phone? Sorry if I sound clueless...I am

    Ok just realized my iPhone software wasn't updated. Just came out here so it's done now, but STILL can't register iMessenger. Why??? This is getting frustrating!

    Default Same problem

    I have the same problem. No matter what I do, how much I install, reinstall, turn on or off, I still can't get iMessanger to go through the "loving in"/"connecting"/"registering" step

    Default no loving in

    lol this was supposed to be "logging in", not "loving in"... it doesn't sound like there is a lot of loving going around

    Takes a while for imessage to verify your number

    You need to use the "Messages" app by Apple, the green icon with the white text balloon.

    OP, you need to go read this. A lot of people are being confused. The new feature by Apple is called iMessage (not iMessenger) and it is built into the OS. You don't need to download anything from the App Store.

    Apple - iOS 5 - See new features included in iOS 5.

    "iMessenger" is not an Apple app so I would suggest you contact the app's developer(s) for assistance. Also, you can try deleting the app and then reinstalling it.
