    My wife is on holiday in Turkey and I am in the Uk, we can talk to each other on Skype, but cannot get FaceTime or I message to work, trying to contact her from the uk it just seems to ring and ring and ring. When trying to contact me from Turkey she just gets the message FaceTime failed after a couple of rings. Is there something I have missed in setting up these Ipad 2 s ? Can't work out why Skype works but FaceTime or I message does not. any help greatly appreciated.

    Are you both on wifi? FaceTime doesn't work on 3G.

    Also, you need to delete the AppleID email address from FaceTime in Settings on one of the iPads and replace it with another.

    Same deal for iMessage. You need to change the "receive at" email address.
