    I am able to receive calls, however, I can't place the call to the same people. I also downloaded the mac version and face the same issue. I went to Apple Genius bar, yet I have no problem calling from my ipod touch . Once I got home and try it again I face the same issue. It's always so and so is not available for FaceTime. What gives?


    Everything gives.

    If FaceTime always fails at your home wi-fi but can work at other wi-fi locations, your home wireless LAN needs troubleshooting.

    Start here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4319

    If configuring your wireless router to use UPnP does not resolve your problem, and if you do not want to try a different wireless router, you may need to manually configure your router using the suggestions in

    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4245

    Some users report that that changing the wi-fi DNS Setting to Google's 8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4 improves wi-fi performance for FaceTime. If your problem perists, you can try using the Google DNS numbers in your iPod's wi-fi network DNS settings.

    If you need more Wi-Fi help, read this article:

    that happened with me at first either keep trying that same email or try a different email

    I had this problem, and none of the previous answers worked for me. After testing several different approaches, I finally discovered what the problem was:

    * Your password must have at least 1 uppercase letter and 1 numeral in it. *

    The reason that new accounts work is because the process Apple set up for creating new accounts requires that you have at least 1 uppercase letter in your password. Older accounts, on the other hand, don't require having an uppercase letter.

    Try these steps:

    1. Go to: http://appleid.apple.com/
    2. Click on *Manage your account* and login.
    3. Click on *Password and Security*.
    4. Click on *Change Password*.
    5. Change your password. *Make sure your password has at least 1 uppercase letter and 1 numeral in it!*
    6. Click on the *Save Changes* button.
    7. Finally, go back to your iPhone or iPod Touch and try your new password in FaceTime, and voilà!

    Please let me know if this works for any of you. I am curious to know if this helps people out.

    Good luck!

    I have tried resetting the DNS, I have a working e-mail which I use to sign in to itunes and works as my Apple ID. The password has an uppercase letter and a number. I typed it correctly and still no facetime.

    At wits end. Has anyone had any kind of response from Apple on this?? They seem to be very quiet considering there are so many threads and requests for help.

    Welcome to Discussions, qmwneb

    With all you have tried, there may be something wrong with your particular iPod. The retailer who sold it to you should be able to help you or perhaps exchange your iPod for one that works.

    As explained in Discussions Help http://discussions.apple.com/help.jspa
    Discussions is a *user-to-user support forum*.

    However, you're retailer or his Apple Authorized Service Provider may have more information than is available here.

    If you would rather, you can send suggestions directly to Apple from:



    http://www.apple.com/feedback/ipodtouch.html

    You will not get a response, but you can be certain that the responsible

    Apple people will see your input for consideration in future products.

    Thanks steve, for some reason my daughters ipod touch keeps resetting the date to 1970???
    I changed the date and time back and it works.
  • BennyCoiso Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I tried everything that was posted here. I'm with the correct date. I just can't get FaceTime to work on this iPod Touch 4G. It is running iOS 4.2, and App Store works fine. Date is also correct.

    "FaceTime Activation"

    "Couldn't sign in. Please check your network connection and try again."

    I really tried everything, I just don't know what to do more. Can you help me please?

    Thanks.

    This worked for me, I was creating account's etc. but changing the DNS did it. I'm on my home Linksys router with WEP on and figured something was wrong. My Ipod touch was connecting to facetime, but my son's wasn't. I think I set my Facetime account on an open network if I'm not mistaken. But hear at home we had a problem so it might be a DNS router issue. But not sure all I know is that it's working.
  • briscofan Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Changing to Google DNS solved the issue on my Mac as well.

  • scopic Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    This issue also affects Messaging on Ipad2

     

    I fixed it for my Mum with the 8.8.8.8 dns - and it works nicely - BUUUUT

     

    then the appstore stops working

     

    soooooo

     

    my solution -

     

    set the DNS to the default one and 8.8.8.8 as secondary -

     

    i.e 10.1.1.1,8.8.8.8

     

    and it worked -

  • ikodak Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    OK so after trying everything on this helpful subject, the date advice finally did it AFTER i set it to "set automatically" and then facetime and Imessage started working . Thank you, thank you

    I had also set the dns in WIfi section to 8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4

  • Harnicles Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
