I've successfully installed FaceTime on my 27" iMac using my Apple ID and MobileMe email address. Tried to do the same with my wife's Apple ID and MobileMe on my second iMac (a 21.5") but to no avail. Ditto with my daughter's Apple ID and MobileMe email on the same iMac. I'm either told the ID is "permanently unauthorized" or "invalid". Could it be that both of these are secondary IDs on my main MobileMe account and not standalone IDs?

    Unless you paid for three MobileMe accounts then they are just aliases on your account.

    I have a question. I dont know if this is the right place to ask this, but i really need an answer.

    I tried installing facetime BETA for Mac. But it says:

    You are missing a critical security patch. Please use Software Update to install Security Update 2010-005

    Will Facetime BETA work on MacBook Pro with 10.6.3 Snow Leopard Version?

    What should I do?

    You only need to ask in one place, but I will answer here, too.
