When I tried signing in to iMessage or FaceTime I was getting error : You cannot sign in to iMessage on this Mac at this time.

So after searching the internet I got to know that calling Apple support I can get it working.

So Today I called apple support and they solved my issue. It was like a dream come true.

The support guy told me that he has registered my serial number into the apple database. I was using the invalid serial number which just got valid.

Now on checkapplecoverage.com my serial number is shown as purchase date not validated.

So my question is should I keep using the now registered serial number shown as purchase date not validated or generate a new one which will be shown as invalid.

It's good.

You don't need to worry now as the activation has been done. Purchase date validation is not a big issue, it's a message from the server, more like a syntax which they have designed, where if the database cannot find a purchase date from an invoice, it will display such message. This is because some customer bought the product from an Apple reseller.
