How to make a Facetime call with your Apple ID (instead of phone number)
Does this article apply to me?
I'm short on time. Summarize.
Facetime is a service provided by Apple that allows you to make video calls to other iPhone, iPad and Macbook users. Because our service is VoIP, your phone number will not work for Facetime calls, however you can use your email address or Apple ID instead. This guide will show you how to get and use an Apple ID for facetime calls. If you do not have an Apple ID, you can easily create one for free, by clicking here.
Fill in the requested information, including your name and email address, and create a password. Make sure to remember your email address and password, you will need it to log into the Facetime application.
After you have created your Apple ID, go to the home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
Tap on the Facetime application.
Sign in using the Apple ID information that you just created.
You can now make and receive Facetime calls.
To make a call you will need to search for a phone number or email address. Remember, the recipient of the call must also have a Apple device (iPhone or iPad).
