To use iMessage while on the KnowRoaming network, please enable your iMessage account with your email address.
To enable iMessage with your email, follow these steps:
) Go to your: iPhone Settings > Messages > make sure ‘iMessage’ is turned ON > go to ‘Send & Receive’ > un-check your number (if possible) > then make sure your email address is checked for both sections > Restart phone. After restarting, if you get a prompt about iMessage Activating SMS, please always select Cancel.
- Now you can send and receive iMessages abroad using your email address.
- Even when the iPhone displays 'Waiting for Activation’, iMessage may actually have already activated and you can send iMessages.
) After you return home, go back to your: iPhone Settings > Messages toggle ‘iMessage’ OFF and ON > go to ‘Send & Receive’ > wait 1 min for the info to refresh, and then make sure your phone number is checked again.
