I recently Brought a new iPod Touch 4th Gen and whenever i try to sign in to FaceTime It says " FaceTime Activation. Could Not Sign in. Please Check your network connection and try again." I've checked my network connection by using Safari And it works Fine and I've also Downloaded Apps.

Can Anyone Help?

Ps. My Internet Doesn't have a Firewall.

    I think it means your sign in or something is not correct. In the settings do you have face time turned on?

    You have already ruled out the Firewire possibility.

    For other possible causes and some solutions, take a look at the threads returned by this search:

    You will need to look through them to find which might apply to your system and connection.

    We will watch for your status update.

    Change your DNS to 8.8.8.8 and then re-connect. After having registered, be sure to switch your DNS to the original value or you will find that your internect connection will be very slow.

    I had the same problem, so took it to the Apple Store and the tech went to the settings and turned the "Airplane" mode ON which cuts the phone off from all commuication. She left it OFF for about a minute then switched it back ON. Like magic, Facetime was back. She said doing that in a way resets the communication connections on the touch. Hope this helps.

    I'm having the same problem, tried the airplane mode thing, didn't work. Any other suggestions? How do I check for a firewall? Everything else is working and downloading just fine.

    I have a 4th generation Ipod Touch with which i was able to use Facetime..Unfortunately i had to reset my Ipod recently and now cannot log into Facetime any longer. I`ve had to reset my Apple ID so many times it`s unreal. Once reset ...as i log in..it never gets to the verifiying part ..it just switches back to the loggin page ...

    I ma clueless in what to attemp next. Anyone with the solution to this problem ?

    Hi, I'm having the same problem you did. I also reset the iPod and now everything but FaceTime works, How did you fix it? Have tried the Airplane bit and also lengthy conversations with Apple support but no-one seems to have the answer.
