How to Fix this error?

In my experience in order to fix this error go ahead and

1.Go to Messages and open a message from anyone and a error message will appear on screen that iMessage is signed out. Notice that there is a option to go to settings go ahead and click it.

(OR) Go to Settings, Messages and you should see the same screen.

2.Notice that iMessages is on in most cases but there is no Address to send or receive.

3.Tap on send and receive, there should be two options of your number and a Email address (Yours might be different). Select your Number to use for activation.

It will activate and you should see your number under send and receive.

The errors should be gone including the red exclamation on messages and within messages. If its still there reboot or simply click on a message from anyone and exit again and it will refresh. That’s it the issue is fixed.
