    Had my iPad 2 since they where available, I still do not understand why FaceTime never worked, I tried calling several friends on their iPhones and i got errors to check the number, I have a 3 g card as well as wifi on all the time and never successfully called a soul.

    What exactly am I don't wrong, anyone else experiencing the same situations?

    Are they on wifi when you call. FaceTime only works through wifi if I remember correctly.

    I forget now all the exact steps but you set your iPhone up to call their iPhone via their cell # or their iPad via their email address.

    It's strange, I watched a few YouTube videos, like this one for example;



    He actually covers a step by step guide on how you set it up, but what I gathered so far was that on a iPhone, all you need to do is add the email of hat contact that FaceTime is set up with on their iPad 2s., but when I do this the FaceTime button in the contact of he iPhone is not there, so it fails to register anyones emails to contact them.

    Then on the iPad 2 I tried calling the number of the iPhone 4 and that error came up. To check the number, I even tried adding the country code, still fail, then I tried contacting the email, said UN available., ow I'm lost, gnna take a nap.,


    .....


    Actually I can't sleep, I now tried something, I found out FaceTime was off on the iPhone, so I turned it on and now I can see the FaceTime button in the contacts., it's from the iPad 2 now that I fail to call, FaceTime is turned on and all as well, don't get it.

    You don't call a number. You call an email address on a wifi iPad.
