Face time and iMessage no longer work on my iPod touch 4th generation
Hi. Subject line pretty much tells the story but i'll clarify a bit. When I first got my iPod touch back in March I was able to use iMessage, and face time occasionally when someone called me using that. I noticed that it hadn't been working lately so I opened up the iMessage app and was met with the welcome screen, asking me to sign in using my apple ID and password, which I did. I clicked next and was met with another screen asking me if that was the email address I wanted to use, which it was. So I clicked next and the next screen said it was verifying my email address, which is where the trouble starts. It The next screen contains a message saying that my email address could not be verified, and an email with a link would be sent to the above address. But that email never shows up. and yes I even checked my junk folder in Thunderbird, which is my email program. I've tried the process a few times, always with the same results. I did a google search on the problem, and everyone else I found with the problem never got an answer either. So, is there a fix for this issue? I'm not exactly sure when the problem started but i'd like to fix it if possible.
