    Has anyone figured out how to get on Facetime I put in my Apple ID and password, and it says, "check network connection". We have WiFI and I get my mail and on the internet just fine. Can't figure out why Facetime won't accept me.

    My wife and I just start the app and select each other and it connects instantly. Do you have the person your calling added as a contact?

    No, I don't have anyone as a contact yet. Don't I have to log on first? That is where the problem is. I"ll keep trying. Thanks.

    For my wife and I it had us sign in then set up. It took a few minutes for set up and we were chatting. Try restarting the FaceTime app and see if that helps or the IPad itself. Also try restarting the WiFi on the IPad.

    A probable Fix


    Hello

    I got a new ipad 2 yesterday and have had issues exactly as you describe. Apple support guys were unable to help.

    I have now fixed this on my Ipad and would be interesting to see if this fixes for you.

    Go to Settings, Network, Wifi and select your wifi connection. Go to the settings of it by pressing the blue arrow next to it.
    Then in the DNS server list add , 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4 to the list.
    ( The comma is important to add to the existing IP address that you will have in there- the existing address is most likely your ADSL router IP address)

    This instantly fixed it for me and worked 1st time after.

    If it works for you i will post how i came to this solution.

    best regards

    The best app i use called " Tango" and it uses your 3G connections to establish face time application. I seldom use the face time WIFI, however I use the Tango app to have face time with my wife during lunch time.
    Tango is a free app.

    I have these DNS as well, but it did not do the trick for me. Everytime I try to sign in it gives me a time out error. On my Mac no problem. I tried as well to create a new Itunes account, but here as well no luck.

    Why don't you tell us how you have come up with this solution prior to altering one's DNS.

    in order for Face time to work well, both parties must have strong WIFI connectivities.

    Are you logged in using the same account as someone else on the network?
    Also try putting your user name and password in through the settings app under facetime.
