How to Use Facetime - FOR APPLE DEVICES ONLY

Please note, due to age and software of your device, the “look” of these instructions may not exactly match the “look” of your Apple device. However, the names of the apps are all the same.

Making a FaceTime call is not too different from a normal phone call, you just first need to make sure the function is turned on…

How to turn on FaceTime: (1) Open the FaceTime app on your device’s home screen and sign in with your Apple ID. (2) You can also sign in from the Settings App: go down to FaceTime. (2a) Switch the little toggle so it is green, and then sign in with your Apple ID.

If you’re using an iPhone, FaceTime automatically registers your phone number. If you’re using an iPad or iPod touch, register your email address by tapping Settings > FaceTime > Use your Apple ID for FaceTime, and sign in with your Apple ID.
You will only need to do this the very first time you sign in. If you open the FaceTime app and it does not ask you to sign in, then you are already good to go!

(3) Make a FaceTime call: The person you’re calling must also be on an Apple device. You need the person’s phone number or registered email address. In the FaceTime app, press the “+” and start typing your contact’s phone number or email address, or name if they’re already in your contact list (then tap the name when it appears). (4) Then tap “Video,” and your video call will begin!
