Setting Up FaceTime

FaceTime uses your email address for making FaceTime calls between people. There's no phone number, just email addresses.

To set up FaceTime before you start to use it, follow these steps:

  1. From the home panel of the Home screen, tap Settings.

    The Settings screen appears.

  2. Tap FaceTime.

    The FaceTime settings screen appears, requesting your Apple ID, as shown in Figure 10.2.

    Figure 10.2 Use your Apple ID to sign in to FaceTime.

  3. If you don't have an Apple ID, tap Create New Account, and follow the steps shown to create one. Otherwise, skip to Step 4.
  4. Enter your user name and password. Tap Sign In.

    You're signed in to FaceTime.

  5. Enter the email address you wish to use as a "handle" for FaceTime calls. Tap Verify. If requested, check your email Inbox and follow the instructions in the FaceTime email you are sent.

    Apple verifies the email address. You are presented with the FaceTime Settings screen, shown in Figure 10.3.
