I had imessage working originally when I first got ST. I used tetherme to get data to work. I had to restore and reinstall everything on my iphone but imessage stopped working. My data is on and working, just imessage always fails and facetime never has worked. Other then those two things everything else has been sweet.

Make sure that you can browse internet via safari on your iPhone without WiFi. iMessage require internet connection, either WiFi or cellular. To enable iMessage your number need to be registered with Apple server. This is an automatic process. Go to settings->Messages and turn off and turn on iMessage. It may take a while to enable iMessage on your phone with the ST (AT&T) number. Some time it take hours. If you are unable to connect to internet without WiFi, you need to install a profile by going to http://www.unlockit.co.nz with your wifi connection. Follow the instruction on the phone and select Straight Talk as service provider from the list (if you have not done it already!)

Imessage worked fine for me on my 3GS, but when I got my 4S it is stuck on the activation. I have tried many things, including letting it sit overnight. At which point it says activation failed. I have tried talking to ST on the phone, which only leads to more frustration because they can't seem to grasp that my phone works, i get messages and data and calls just fine. They want me to call apple, which I think will be pointless if it has something to do with a block on international messages or whatever. It bothers me that it worked fine with the same sim on an older phone but now it doesn't on a newer phone.
