Well, i keep receiving this message 'Please contact Apple Support' after installing clover and editing config.plist.
It is really annoying because i do everything properly but iMessage won't work. I do not have any apple device so i can't apply the log out fix.
Is anyone still having this problem? I just am about to give up, but before that i would like to ask this excellent forum, maybe there is a fix that i miss.
thank you guys

All icloud features were already enabled...my problem is that you are using Chameleon Bootloader in your guide and i am using Clover (and, really, i am enjoying this bootloader) and finally i don't have a credit card :wallbash:
But thanks for your effort,

It's exhaustively said, but let's go:

If you are getting "Contact Apple support", no workaround will work but one of these two below:

1) Add a valid credit card to your AppleID;

2) Log with your AppleID in legit Apple hardware, i.e.: an iPhone, iPad, a real Mac etc.

No other workaround has been proven to work!

There's a very well known logical fallacy, "post hoc ergo propter hoc" (after that, thus caused by that) that's behind the various claims to have the issue solved after doing this or that simple thing, when the plain fact there's no other explanation than pure coincidence to 100% of these claims. It's so true that none of these "workarounds" are reproducible. The only proven workarounds for the "Contact Apple support" are those two above.

I beg forgiveness if i'm being harsh: all in all, everybody just wants to help and to be helped. But that's a so very much discussed subject by now, and guessing solutions that cannot be certified to work mostly do more harm than good. That's it.

All the best and good luck!

So you should solve other subjacent issues before even trying to get iMessage to work.

All the best!

Im not aware of any other problems. Everything seems to be working fine.
What if I were to call Apple?

I just want to see a post from ONE person who's had this problem and was able to fix it.

This might be a very bad thing, but I actually called Apple support and they escalated it to somewhere and said they'd call me back.

No, the only existing workaround for it up to now is to either add a valid CC or use an iOS device.

All the best!

If they activating it for anyone who calling them, then why they need to block it? I just don't get it...
