    now mine is not sending over 3g. Apple Care has escalated it but will not send a new device. Heading to the apple store to get it swapped out this weekend.

    UPDATE:
    After contacting apple care and getting no results I decided to go to the Apple Store and have them replace my phone. After doing that and restoring from back up we were off and running, having issues over their WiFi right off the bat with MMS or iMessage.

    I get home and it continues to not function proper and do as per instructed and put my Arris into bridge mode with a nice new Linksys router. Side Note: Another issue I was having with the Arris was it would not allow my 360 to connect, which now connects without issue. However, the issue with iMessage (which happens on my new 5, the original 5 i received, and my gfs 4s which took the update OTA) remains.

    After giving up and a month going by I had accepted never being able to send pictures while @ home, my friend at apple came up with a solution. Boot into recovery while connected to the computer and let iTunes re install the OS and DO NOT restore from back up, set up the device as a new phone. Problem solved. He said it is a glitch in the OS that cannot be remedied with traditional means.


    Long Story Short: issues over WiFi with iMessage, boot into recovery and let iTunes install iOS6.0, not OTA.

    Ugh, I just updated my iPod and tried messaging my boyfriend over iMessage and the exact same thing happened to me. I was just trying to read through and comment on a discussion in the Apple community threads and it rejected my Apple ID about 30 times before I completely freaked out. I hated Apple before all this nonsense, but now I'm just plain pissed. I updated today thinking, "How can my iPod get any worse?" Well, I just found out how. Before it rejected my ID I saw someone say that on their iPad, they had this issue and they just went into their wifi settings, clicked the blue arrow on their connected network, and then clicked "Renew lease" and then iMessage started working fine. It didn't work for me, but it might work for someone else.

    update: went to school, iMessage worked perfectly fine and was faster than it's ever been on the school's network, and faster than it's been, ever, anywhere. i just got home, and it doesn't work again. convinced that my internet is total ? I think yes.

    I am able to use imessage on my iPhone 4S. I works fine. iOS6.

    On the iPad2 - It was working till Sept 2012 - but stopped, Probably at the time I upgraded to iOS 6.

    The iPhone was also upgraded to iOS 6 and imessage continues to work. Same network, same wifi.

    Any suggestions.. resolutions.

    Try changing your dns to see if it helps google is 8.8.8.8

    I am having the same issue. iPhone 5 with the latest 6.0.1 update. Since Verizon does not allow me to use voice and data at the same time, if I am on a call, and I am connected to wifi, it will not send through wifi. It will hang at about 90% and after the timeout value, it will revert it back to a standard text message. Unfortunately I cannot send pictures either since standard texting won't allow pictures if I'm on a call - only text.

    I have been looking for the same solution as you. I have the iPhone 5 and am solely relying on iMessage to keep in touch with my family in the US with their apple devices. My phone will send messages 90% and stop and about 3 minutes later will say message delivery failed. Although mine will work a few hours of trying to send messages or when my phone finally receives an iMessage (that is very delayed). I have also wiped my phone and updated my phone and nothing seems to help. I will let you know if I find any help on this issue

    This sounds like you need to hook to iTunes and restore your phone

    Just wondering if this issue concerning sending photos on wifi was resolved. I can only send And receive when data is on. Nobody in tech seems to know the answer
