I've recently bought a Macbook pro which already had Facetime pre-installed (version 1.0.3) but for some reason it will not work!! That is, I can't even log in under my Apple ID.
The thing falls over when I sign in - it produces and message to say that I can't sign in and I need to check my network connections.
I have checked and double check that i am using the correct Apple ID username and password with the apple web site (manage your Apple ID) and my wife uses Facetime via her iPhone which works OK.
So I'm assuming that our internet connection is fine, since my wife is able to use the iPhone Facetime at home and I'm trying to use the same network, and that I am entering my Apple ID correctly, but why won't it work!!
I see that the App Store is selling Facetime 1.0.2 - has this something to do with it?
Where am I going wrong?
Can anyone offer any suggestions?
I have the same issue. My little bro told me to go into the wifi settings, go to advanced, and change the DNS sever from whatever to "220.127.116.11". i was skeptical at first but it worked. The problem now is I still can't facetime with anyone! So maybe its not such a good idea after all. My macbook pro is brand new and came with Lion pre-installed. the next issue too is that i noticed the mac app store is still selling the 1.02 version of the facetime app. i checked my one and noticed I have version 1.1! I think that this is the real problem. I tried buying the app on the App store and it told me to delete the facetime app I have on my MBP because my facetime is a "later version of the app". I tried deleting it but the OS won't allow me to delete it because its already integrated in the system! I realize now that this might not be helping......
