I have a new ipad2 and I can't seem to activate the iMessage. It says it can't access the network and to check it. I have an iPhone 4 that has no problem accessing the network and running imessage and facetime and I can access safari on the iPad. I have reset everything twice, yes the network settings and yes the entire ipad to factory settings with with the apple tech on the phone and still not able to activate iMessage or face time. My date and time is on auto and FaceTime won't work because I can't activate either of them. I don't think I should have to change the DNS to the google 8888. The apple techs say it may be my router and my ISP ( century link ) says it is not my router. All I know is that I have tried all of the tricks and reached an end with the apple techs. So i hear that it is not the network and not the ipad and not the router ... Now what?
