Check your settings
If iMessage isn’t working on your iPhone or iPad, there are a few things you can check to troubleshoot the issue. First, make sure that your device has an Internet connection. iMessage requires an active data connection to work.

Next, go to the Settings app and tap on Messages. Make sure that the iMessage toggle is turned on. If it is, try turning it off and then back on again. If that doesn’t work, try resetting your network settings by going to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

Delete the conversation and start anew
The first thing you should do if iMessage isn’t working properly on your iPhone or iPad is to delete the conversation and start anew. This can often fix small glitches and get things back to normal. To delete a conversation, simply swipe left on it in the Messages app and tap Delete. You can also delete individual messages within a conversation by tapping and holding on the message, then tapping the trash can icon.
Force restart your device

To restart your iPhone or iPad, simply press and hold the power button until the “slide to power off” slider appears. Then, slide the slider to the right to power off your device. Once it’s off, press and hold the power button again to turn it back on.

Check your Do Not Disturb settings
If you’re using Do Not Disturb mode on your iPhone or iPad, it could be the reason why your iMessage isn’t working. Make sure that Do Not Disturb is turned off by going to Settings -> Do Not Disturb and checking that the switch is in the off position. You should also make sure that “Allow Calls From” is set to “All Contacts” so that you can receive messages from everyone.
Turn off LTE data
If you’re having trouble with iMessage, one of the first things you should try is turning off LTE data. To do this, go to Settings > Cellular and toggle the “Enable LTE” switch to off. This will force your iPhone or iPad to use 3G data, which is more reliable for iMessage. If you’re still having trouble, try restarting your device or resetting your network settings.
Sign out of iMessage and back in
If you’re having trouble with iMessage, one of the first things you can try is signing out and back in. This will often fix the problem, and it’s a pretty easy process:
1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Tap on Messages.
3. Scroll down and tap on Sign Out. You may need to enter your Apple ID password to confirm.
4. Once you’ve signed out, restart your device and then sign back in to iMessage using your Apple ID and password.
Hopefully that does the trick! If not, there are a few other things you can try…
Set up iMessage as new
If you’re having trouble getting iMessage to work on your iPhone or iPad, one of the first things you should try is setting it up as a new device. This will erase all your current settings and data, but it can often fix problems with apps and services that aren’t working properly. Here’s how to set up iMessage as new on your iPhone or iPad:
1. Open the Settings app and tap “Messages.”
2. Tap “Reset Network Settings.” This will reset your cellular and Wi-Fi settings, so make sure you have all the relevant information ( passwords, usernames, etc.) before proceeding.
3. Next, go to “Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings.” This will erase your device’s current settings and data, but not its content (photos, videos, etc.).
4. Finally, open the Messages app and attempt to set up iMessage again. Follow the on-screen prompts to enter your phone number and activate iMessage.
Contact Apple Support
If your iMessage isn’t working, there are a few things you can try to fix the problem. First, make sure your iPhone or iPad has an active internet connection. You can do this by opening the Safari app and loading a website. If the website loads, you have an active internet connection.
If you have an active internet connection and iMessage still isn’t working, try restarting your iPhone or iPad. To do this, hold down the power button until the “Slide to Power Off” slider appears. Slide the slider to power off your device. Once your device is off, press and hold the power button again until you see the Apple logo.
If restarting your device doesn’t fix the problem, the next thing to try is contacting Apple Support. You can do this by going to apple.com/support or by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE (1-800-692-7753). When you contact Apple Support, be sure to have your device with you so they can help troubleshoot the problem.
We hope that this guide has shown you the best ways to fix any iMessage problems on your iPhone or iPad. Remember, if restarting doesn’t work, then resetting network settings and performing a factory reset can also help. Of course, if all else fails, reach out to Apple for assistance.
