I experienced this problem in 10.8.5 Messages caused by mistakenly entered filtering rules in LittleSnitch. After I disabled deny rules for the following services, the login problem went away: apsd, fpsaud, and ubd.

The answer to my non-syncing contacts in iMessage was to ensure that the international dialling code is added to all of my contacts as this is what our local network (Vodacom) uses. The system then successfully matches the number the network uses with the number in my contacts and then displays the name and picture successfully. Thank you for your help ...

Ok, so this is the solution that worked for me. No guarantees it'll work for you, but it's worth a shot compared to having to recreate your account. First off, open Terminal. You can do this by either typing Terminal in the Spotlight, or going to Applications > Utilities > Terminal.app. From there a window will open and you will type sudo chmod 755 ...

Usually I activate the Guest account and use that to test issues like you're describing. If you try with the Guest account and you're successful, it is an indicator that you've got permission problems with your files. Unfortunately, Apple's Disk Utility doesn't fix users' files. I've generally found it is quickest to go into the terminal.app and look for ...

iMessage is designed to prefer sending a message over Apple's servers vs sending via the carrier's SMS system. When you send a message, iMessage checks to see if the recipient is registered with Apple's Messages server. If the target you are messaging is not registered with Apple's Messages server (ie they use an Android phone), your iPhone will send the ...

I had a similar problem. I believe this starts when you connect both you iOS device and your Mac to the same iMessages account. I never bothered to fix it on mine (I just stopped using it on my computer LOL). But I actually think I know what will fix it though. You can make a new Apple ID account for your iCloud and messages (still keep the old one for ...

Make sure TCP port 5223 is open through the VPN—this port is required by iMessage.

You can simply use ⌘ + G in order to jump to the next occurrence and ⌘ + Shift + G in order to jump to the previous one.

I had a similar problem, with the culprit being that iCloud got confused, and continued to send text messages as iMessages, so that my new phone (non-iphone) never got them. Turns out, in order to turn off iMessages settings, you must disable iMessage EVERYWHERE. If you turn off iMessages on a phone, and leave it on your iPad, it won't reset (this was my ...

I have found that disabling and enabling FaceTime on both the iDevices and Macs can help solve iMessage problems.

It's only a guess, but your scenario matches an issue I had with my iDevices and Message on the Mac too. See also the discussion here. What resolved the issue was activating the iMessage Setting on my iPhone via Settings > Messages. Strangely this does effect the Messages send/receive on the Mac as well! Can you verify this?

I had the same issue, that iMessages didn't show up on my Mac - only on the iDevices. The root cause was however, that iMessage was not active anymore on the iPhone, as pointed out by @chrismukherjee via In Settings > Messages the iMessage setting is turned on.

I have had this happen on one of my Macbook pros. It turned out that the Macbook's serial number had been lost when after a hardware repair had been completed by a third party. If you go to About this Mac and choose More info you should see your serial number, if it is missing that could be the problem.

This might be a far shot but try removing and re-adding your credit card information in your apple ID.
