After upgrading my iPhone 4 to iOS5, people who were previously able to Facetime with me weren’t able contact me any longer. The calls just failed.
Turns out there was a change on my side of things that I wasn’t aware of. If people can’t reach you on Facetime, make sure that Facetime is turned on in your Settings on your iPhone/iPod/iPad.
Go to Settings > Facetime and check to make sure that you have the Facetime setting set to ON if you’re having a similar problem. Hopefully this will help someone else out!
In June of 2010 when Apple released Facetime on the world, they also unveiled a free service where you could call 1-888-FACETIME and get an Apple employee to pick up your Facetime call request. The number still works to call, but there’s no more video option. Kind of disappointing. I wonder if Apple or anyone else could set up an automated video response? When exactly did this service end?
