My iMessages on my new iPhone 5 and FaceTime keep saying "Waiting for Activation...". I've tried everything one several different forums to fix this problem. I've tried shutting them all off, resetting network settings, then turning them all back on... Nothing. Seems like it was a common problem on other forums a few months back but nothing as of recently. Any ideas?

Eh, restore was my final option. I'll post back on how it goes. Sigh. This iDay has been less than pleasant for me. :(

The restore fixed the issue.

That's funny you say that bc just north of me (Jacksonville) just got LTE a few weeks back with AT&T. While I was in the store today, I asked them if there was any plans for my town to get it and they were like, we'll, they grouped us with Jacksonville so we already have it here. Sure enough...got my phone activated and...LTE! This is about the only really GOOD thing that has come about today, LoL.
