How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have an iphone 4 running ios 7.1.2 jailbroken with pangu. A couple days ago my imessages just stopped working. I have the sim taken out so i just use the phone like an ipod. When i try to send an imessage to another imessage user it says "This person cannot be reached by imessage" When i try to message an iphone user it makes me send a text (which obviously i cant do that) I have restored twice and the problem still persists. It was working fine for months and all of a sudden it just stopped working. I would really appreciate some help, thanks.

Possibly an iMessage outtage?

Mine was flakey this weekend.

I'm not sure, now i can't even sign into my apple ID in imessage settings.

Do a factory restore buddy through iTunes, restore from backup and get everything up and running, make sure it works then re jailbreak, I'm not sure anyone's going to be able to prescribe a fix for you in the devices current state.

There were some issues with iMessage on an earlier version of Pangu for iOS 8 but that has been resolved which doesn't apply to you anyway.

Take a look at specific Apple Support forums mate as it's not a jailbreak issues.

I don't know what the answer is but then I'm looking at it from the point of view "what part of the jailbreak" would do this.

Could be something wrong with your Apple ID as iMessage needs you to sign in to that, try signing in on the Apple site, if you can there and not your phone then that would answer that question.

I've had to reset my password before when it's messed up, plenty of that sort of thing to try mate.

Would hacktivation fix my problem?

But your problem isn't related to jailbreaking so why use a tweak to fix something that should be able to be fixed by Apple. Your account was working fine you don't need to hack the activation.

Thats true, I'll contact apple and ask about it.
