@milee, when your iPhone asks you to activate iMessage/Facetime and warns you that there may be carrier charges, do not agree to it. Then your iPhone will give you an option of email activation.

Hi milee, 


The activation request requires sending international SMS to Apple's server in UK. Unfortunately, we do not have control over Apple's server, hence unable to determine the root cause of failed activation.  On the other hand,  have you activated your iMessage and Facetime using your email?  Suggest that you proceed with the email activation first, then try again a week later to activate for your mobile number instead.
