NOTE: The following discusses FaceTime and iMessage in general, not just for Mac.

The weirdest things are happening. I just bought my iPad mini, and I can't log in to use FaceTime or iMessage. At one point, it would let me activate my account, but it wouldn't let me make calls; it would display the "call lost" notice and I would try again, and it still wouldn't work. When I exited FaceTime and reentered it , it asked me for my password again, and I entered it, 100% correctly (I double-, triple-, and quadruple-checked) and it said that it was WRONG!!! ***?!?! Everything is up to date, so don't ask me to check! I need help!

iOS 6.0.1
