    Typed in my id and pw, it goes to the next screen, but before I can click next to verify my email addy, it kicks me back to the login page. Any ideas?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    When an app behaves strangely it is best to close it completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, let us know how you go.

    Have you activated it in Settings - Facetime? And filled in details here? And also set up your notifications?

    Yes the Help Forum is the best place for this and all good now.

    Have you tried deleting the app then re-installing it and setting up the account again?

    I haven't, but I don't know how to uninstall it. It came installed and doesn't show an x to uninstall.
