iPhone 4S - iOS 5.1 - iMessage not working?

I updated to iOS 5.1 and used the txt message GiffGaff sent me for my internet settings - I can go online using 3G but when I go into Settings / Messages - and try swicth on iMessage just asks me to sign in, time and time again?

 

I'm using iMessage on my Messages App on the Mac, so iMessage does work fine just not on my iPhone after the update, any suggestions?

 

Cellular Data:

APN: giffgaff.com

Username: giffgaff

Password: password

 

MMS:

APN: giffgaff.com

Username: giffgaff

Password: password

MMSC: http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.co.uk:10021/mmsc

MMS Proxy: 193.113.200.195:8080

MMS Max Message Size: 2097152

 

These are my settings...

Re: iPhone 4S - iOS 5.1 - iMessage not working?

After lots of tests, we worked out that iphone A had "giffgaff profile" for some reason. iphone B and C did not.

Solution:
Settings > General > Profile --- unsigned giffgaff profile present
Delete this profile
Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data Network
Re-input the giffgaff settings: LINK
Reset the iphone
Done!
Good luck

Re: iPhone 4S - iOS 5.1 - iMessage not working?

Fixed the issue by doing:

1) Switched off Face Time (Setting -> FaceTime-> FaceTime OFF)
2) Switched off iMessage(Setting -> Messages->iMessage OFF)
3) Switched on iMessage

4) Switched on Face(Same “Verifying” as with iMessage, but tooktwo attempts).
6) Power Cycled the ‘phone and re-synced to updateiTunes If necessary

Do a clean install using iTunes and setup iMessage from scratch. It will work

Re: iPhone 4S - iOS 5.1 - iMessage not working?

i had to delete the giffgaff setting profile i downloaded this morning after i updated my iphone to 5.1because the internet didnt work correctly after downlaoding the profile.

 

I solved the problems by deleteing the profile and inputting the setting manually which you can find on here if you search for iphone setting.

 

Job done all working fantastically again :-)

The solution is to delete profile in Settings>General>Profile (I think that's where profile is) and enter the APN settings again! Reboot then it should work

Re: iPhone 4S - iOS 5.1 - iMessage not working?

Make sure all your MMS settings are the same as the ones I made in my first post?

Go to Settings / Messages - turn off iMessage and back on again.

In Settings / Messages - go down to receive at - Caller ID - change it to your email.

If all that doesn't work try turning off FaceTime and iMessage and repeat what I just suggested.
