    If you have enough credit for texting on your SIM Card and have enabled international messaging on your line, you should be able to activate.

    When you go into the iMessage settings and toggle it to "ON" also go to "Send & Receive" and tap on the Apple ID at the top. Sign out of it. Once signed out, sign back in and see if it activates now.

    After activating i-msg, go to "send and receive" and check if you have your apple ID mentioned, the phone number & email ID in " you can be reached in i-message at" and "start new conversations from "
    For me:
    you can be reached in i-message at- has both phone no# and email
    start new conversations from- has both phone# and email BUT phone # is checked.

    Let us know if it works

    If it keeps failling, try to reboot your device and then do the same thing again.

    I am not getting the "start new conversations from" option and in the "you can be reached by iMessage at" only getting the email id option (no phone number option) in which i have entered my correct Apple ID.

    How do I activate iMessage on Jio SIM?-91a81c76-e225-4a4a-9152-76e11da49aa0.jpg.

    First of all , the screenshot you attached , it is written "you can be reached at" is correct. No issues here.
    What problem is that you cannot activate imessage using jio whenther its iPhone 6 or 7 as it sends an international msg to apple which is not yet launched in jio as its limited in India only.

    Actually, a few days ago, i got a message " Carrier Update Available" when i connected my iPhone to PC. After installing the update, iMessage has been activated.

    Imessage activation is done by sending an International sms from your phone and in reply you will get a hidden message to activate , but in Jio you need to have credit at least 10 Rs for International message to be sent (Probably 5 Rs ) then it will activate quickly . So make sure you have credit balance before switching on your Imessage . (simple, recharge Jio and turn on iMessage)
