The first and most common cause is that you may not have the correct settings or account information set up. Make sure that you are logged into the correct Apple ID associated with your device, and that the iMessage option is enabled within the settings. Additionally, ensure that the correct email address and phone number are associated with the Apple ID, as iMessage needs this information in order to work properly.
Another potential cause could be due to the device not being connected to a reliable or stable internet connection. If the device is connected to a weak or intermittent connection, it could be preventing the device from registering with the iMessage service. In this case, try connecting to a different network and see if that resolves the issue.
What does it mean a number is not registered with iMessage?
When a number is not registered with iMessage, it means that it is not linked to an Apple ID. iMessage is an Apple feature that allows users to send messages to other Apple users over wifi or cellular data. To use iMessage, a user must have an Apple ID and be signed in to iMessage with that ID. If a phone number is not associated with an Apple ID, it cannot be used with iMessage. This means that messages sent to that number will not be received. To make a number eligible for iMessage, the user must sign in to iMessage with an Apple ID and link the number to the Apple ID. Once this is done, the number can be used to send and receive iMessages.
