    My facetime only works with people who have an Iphone.

    According to everything I've read in the manual, I should be able to use it with my gmail account to another gmail account user (with an IPAD2 ALSO)
    It tries to call but then says the other person isn't available. of course she was.

    does anyone know what I can do to remedy this?

    I've moved this to the Help section, where I think it will receive better attention....

    The other person must go into the FaceTime settings on their iPad and add the GMail address to the "You can be reached for video calls at:" list. And of course the iPad must actually be able to receive emails from that account.

    thanks for that, but we were trying for a couple of hours...like a couple of nuts. Both of us on speaker phones (landlines) watching our brand new Ipads not connect. We double checked everything. Just couldn't get oneto recognize the other.
    as I said before, works for both of us to iphones (which we don't have but our kids do). They won't help us. hahaha!

    No ideas then. I tested my GMail address, but it was from an iPhone. I don't have two iPads to test against each other.

    It's available for now as an iPhone app. Works well, looks crappy. Supposed to be an iPad version coming soon though.
