iOS and iPadOS
Good evening all.
Over the last day or so I have been trying to assist a friend to get iMessage working via her Apple Id. Well over 24 hours has passed and, as Apple stated on their support pages, she can now receive iMessages from her Apple Id! Yes!
Thank you all for trying to assist in this matter. We're so glad that it's now working.
So there you have it. If you have an iPhone and you wish to activate iMessage using your Apple Id, please give it 24 hours or so before trying it. Before then people will try to send you an mms, which may incur charges.
