When activating my iMessage I have to send a message to a UK number(+447786205094) but when I try to send the message it says Not Delivered, someone help!

You need cash credit on your account to pay for international SMS messages. 8c per SMS to the UK.

And unfortunately Apple's stupid iPhone/FaceTime/iMessage activation process requires such UK SMS messages to be sent. So the solution should be to put €1 cash credit on your account then turn the iPhone off and on again and the activation process should succeed.

Hope this helps.

I already added 2euro to my account and then turned on and off my phone to send the message yet it still says undelivered.

OK - I don't know why that is so.

Once you have cash credit on your account to pay for UK/international texts they should send OK.

Can you send texts otherwise (to Irish numbers)?

You may need to contact 48 support and/or Apple support.

 

Hope this helps.
