activate iphone without apple id
I am trying to activate imessage on my phone.
I was having some trouble with it so I turned it off but when I tried to activate it it started insisting that my Apple ID/Username is incorrect.
What is strange is that the my phone accepts the apple id/password combo and so does my apple id account online when i login...the issue is that the imessage software refuses it for some reason.
Appreciate your help.

Dear community Happy New Year .listen I have a Apple Iphone 4s:I have had this as a gift since may 2012.Its good,but my daughter and about 10 other people I know are having problems with their wall chargers in home and maybe even mobile im not sure.I especially take great care in disconnecting my device and removing the cord when not in use. the wear and tear cannot be that often to cause this damage we are all having !The cord on the charger is unravelling from the base where the apple iphone is attached when or while charging. I have use the cord in very bad conditions because #one I cannot afford to replace this item at the OFFICIAL APPLE STORE so Im guessing people like myself is going to discount stores to make purchase of chargers they most likely not work! I have tried 3 and none work spending anywhere from $8.00-$15.00 dollars. Im also concern about the fact that a lot of CHILDREN who must most likely go un supervised on using this unravelled IPHONE CHARGER CORD when their parents maynot be aware. I not the voltage may not be of that large in which someone could cause shock or harm Im not certain of this either, However theres always a first Im asking can you either number one recall these chargers via Apple Corportation or two these cell phone companies who sell your product make them accountable for this .I learned today through Apple that the cell phone companies that sell Apple product use 3rd parties material to produce these mobile and home wall chargers and that they are not made by APPLE CORPORATION I WAS VERY UPSET TO KNOW THIS !I am asking you APPLE to look into this very important concern that not just me but other consumers may have before their is an injury. also if you sell a $500.00 product thats MADE IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY CERTAINLY YOU CAN INCLUDE A GENIUNE CHARGER WITH YOUR APPLE PRODUCT WHEN SOLD IN CELL PHONE COMPANIES STORES AND STRIP MALLS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND SURELY PEOPLE ARENT AWARE THAT THE REAL PRODUCT IS ONLY AT THE APPLE STORE EVEN IF THIS IS TRUE ! ps I called the apple store today to get a replacement they wanted to charge me would only offer me a $1.25 cent discount ! IST THIS WHAT APPLE PAY TO HAVE OTHER COUNTRIES MAKE THE IPHONE? THANKS APPLE FOR HEARING MY
CONCERNS....firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
When I activate a phone the cell phone company records my info along with the phones info i.e. serial number, IMEI, MEID, CDN, and ICCID number so if I report it lost or stolen why cant they return my phone to me when someone else tries to activate it? They have the info right there, how hard is it to contact the rightful owner If I brought in a stolen car to the dmv and tried to register it in my name they wouldnt just tell me I cant register it and send me on my way, even if I was not the one who stole it the car would be taken and returned to the rightful owner. Why isnt it the same with phones, they know who used to own it from those numbers and they also know it has been lost or stolen, why dont I get my property back?
Why is an Apple Update download being sent to us (my iPhone 4S for example) if its NOT endorsed by Apple -- I almost downloaded & paid for it! I feel tricked & feel like this should NOT be allowed! Im talking about the QuickTime 7 Pro registration keys (codes) to use the downloaded QuickTime 7 Pro -- it popped-up on my computer under the guise of Apples downloads! I want to trust Apple, & I thought I did, until this? After some research I found out Apple does NOT endorse this! They need to advertise like all others! NOT pop-up under the guise that its a necessary update for ALL our Security! Apple should NOT allow this! What stopped me is that they said I had to purchase it AFTER the download -- but they didnt say how much! This is tricky & time consuming Research! I dont have time to research everything that looks legite from a Trusted Company! Apple should NOT allow this!!!

Okay, I need some SERIOUS help from the Apple community.
I have been WAITING for an iPhone FOREVER. Like seriously I have an archaic 3G and its rapidly disintegrating.
My question is, is it possible to buy from the Apple store a DEVICE ONLY iPhone 5, no questions asked? I called Apple today and they said No, it is not possible to buy an iPhone via the Apple Store that is device only. We only sell devices that come with a 2 year contract.
However, that contrasts the MANY forum posts I have found where many users have been able to buy the iPhone device only.
If possible, what is the procedure to purchase one?
Note that I am on T-Mobile.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE someone help me on this matter. Thanks in advance!

I am currently in Russia with my iPhone 4 (Ill be here till June), but I lost my AT&T microsim and, unfortunately had to perform a restore on my iPhone. I cant activate it while Im here or at least I dont know how.
They sell microsims in Russia compatible with iPhone 4, just not in the little city Im in and Ive taken a Russian sim and cut it down to microsim size, but I still cant activate it. They also dont sell phonebook sims here.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to just activate my phone? I dont need it jailbroken or anything, I just need it, at the very least, to be like iPod touch.
Let me know if any other info is needed, thanks guys!
