    I will be following this as I spent an hour on the phone with apple support this morning & we logged in & out of everything, turned things on & off, restarted, reset, redid everything & it wouldn't work. Their final suggestion was to backup then restore factory settings which I've done & it did not fix it. Furious is an understatement.

    Did you go into settings, messages, send & receive and make sure your mobile number is checked ?

    Do EXACTLY what Fastpitch_dad stated! and if that dies t work logout of iMessage, reboot your iPhone and then log back in and try again.

    I can see my mobile number but it is grayed out and cannot check, only email can be checked.

    I had the same issue earlier after upgrading to 7 with my 5 - iMessage wouldn't work. Did a full restore and working fine now.

    1. Turn off imessage n facetime
    2. Make sure to fix your "Country Code" and "Area Code" phone number at Apple id (appleid.apple.com)
    Ex. Country code India = 91, Indonesia = 62
    3. Restart Phone
    4. Activated Again your iMessage n facetime
