    My iMessage worked fine on Friday, however as of today, it does not. When I go to set it up, it shows as toggled on, however underneath it says "waiting for activation." Now, like I said it worked fine on Friday, I have not changed any settings, what gives?

    try this: Open iMessage, under the message settings, a popup message will appear saying your carrier may charge for SMS messages and select cancel. iMessage activates itself after you have clicked cancel. But this would not fully activate itself. Instead, you activated iMessage via e-mail, so you can only send messages with your e-mail address.
