My iMessage is not working while on data. It works on wifi just fine. My data does work for browsing though. I've turned imessage off and back on, reset the network settings etc but still nothing. Any suggestions?

best i got for ya is go into settings turn on send as sms and try ressetting the network settings again, if this fails hold down the power button and home button until the apple appears on the screen. :D

If imessage works on wifi and data works on browsing then imessage should work on data since imessage just needs an internet connection.

Are you messaging people with imessage on? What is being displayed then imessage fails?

Yup that is the problem. Something with data is not working.
I just get a red, delivery failed and then it sends as a text. But I'm not getting replies because people are responding with an imessage and it says delivered on their end.

The fact that it works on wifi will rule out any issues on Apple's end.

I'm out of ideas if you tried everything teabird suggested.
At this point I would do a back via itunes and a full factory reset
