you are likely stuck with broken imessages , changing your mac address almost always breaks imessage even if you change back to the original mac address these issues arise. Even dfu restore will likely do nothing to help you could try leaving your original mac address set and just giving it time and hopefully it will work again , but I wouldn't hold my breath.

correct , if you google imessage broken mac address , you will find it seems after ios 7 it breaks imessage and facetime permanently.

Yes, that's what he means. Apparently evading a ban on a school network has some repurcussions, who'd've thought?
