Just got a new iMac and have beent trying to get Facetime working for days. When I try to sign in with my valid Apple ID, I get the following error message:

 

The server encountered an error processing registration. Please try again later.

 

I've tried all of the suggestions I could find here and on other webistes, such as all the things listed on this site. I've also tried adding 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 to my DNS network settings. I also did everything suggested in this Apple Support document.

 

But I still get the above error message no matter what I do!

 

HELP! I need to get this working, I depend on Facetime to stay in touch with my family who live far away. I can no longer chat with them using Facetime since buying a new iMac.


iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4), 27", 3.4 GHz, 16 GB RAM, NVIDIA 680
