    Apple made some changes to the FaceTime and iMessage servers that broke it for iOS 6 and some older versions of Mac OS X. It has not, as far as I know, been fixed for iOS 6 yet.

    I suspect they are adding features in preparation for the next round of devices and software, and broke the backwards compatibility by accident.

    You can upgrade to iOS 7, or wait for a fix, which they don't seem to be in a hurry to provide.
