Can I use the same email address for facetime on 2 different devices (ipod touch and a mini)

can I use the same email address for facetime on 2 different devices (ipod touch and a mini)?
I've set up my daughters ipod touch last year all fine. She's had a mini this yr but when setting up facetime and entering her email address, which is used on the touch, I get an error message saying the address is already being used.
I thought you can use the same email address on multiple devices.

I have four different email addresses setup on my Mac, iPod Touch and my two iPads that I can select from and use as the email address with no problems at all.
Turn off FaceTime, and sign out of the Apple ID in the FaceTime settings, restart the iPad and try again. Turn FaceTime on again, sign in with the Apple ID and then try the email address again.

    Can I use the same email address for multiple seats in Creative Cloud for Teams?

    Can I buy more than one membership to an individual offering of Creative Cloud? 
    No, Adobe has moved to identity-based licensing with a technology that will not support multiple same-product licenses, so you can buy only one membership per Adobe ID. If you need two Creative Cloud memberships, you will need to purchase each with a unique Adobe ID. You can also purchase a Creative Cloud for teams membership, which allows you to purchase and manage multiple seats under one account.

    Can I use the same email address on two different iPads?

    I use AOL for my work account, I can open an email on my iPad, my iPod Touch, my iMac, another iMac in the office and there are no issues at all. However, my AOL account is IMAP. I read email on the iPad, turn around and read and print from the iMac and someone else is accessing the email at the same time.
    We access the same emails all the time as we have one generic email address that we both use. We like to multitask with AOL.

  • Can I use the same email address in more than one community? How?

    Can I use the same email address in more than one community? How?

    Yes, you can be a member of multiple communities under the same email address. You will need to be invited to those communities. If you are trying to create new communities under the same address, you will not be able to do that through our website.

  • We had iMessage set up.  Then one day it decided to go back to get started. Now I can't use the same email address because it says it is already in use.

    iMessage wants to reset and won't take the same email address because it already in use.

    You got the iLife DVD with your machine. Use it to install iPhoto and software update to get it to the newest version.

  • My wife and I want to swap her 4s for my 4 while a take a short trip out of the country.  We use the same email address for itunes but different for email.  Can we just change our phone numbers and email addresses so we get our own messages?

    My wife and I want to swap her iphone 4s for my iphone 4 while I take a short trip out of the country.  We use the same itunes account but have different email accounts.  Can we just change our phone numbers with our carrier and change email addresses on our phones so we get correct messages, with out disturbing our other apps?

    The email is simple. Just delete her email acoount on her iPhone and configure your account into the phone and then do the same for her on your phone.
    The harder issue is that to switch the cellular phone service you will need to switch the SIM cards and the two phones do not use the same size SIM card.

  • Is there any way I can use the same email address for my Facetime account on my mac and my itouch?

    I set up my Facetime account on my mac with no problem.  When I went to set up my account on my itouch it said "account cannot be verified because it is already in use."  Is there any way to have the same account on my mac and my itouch?

    You should be able to.  I did.  See:
    iOS: FaceTime is 'Unable to verify email because it is in use'
    Just remember if both have the same calling address, you can't call the other device.  I tried that too.

  • Can I use the same email & password for 2 separate macs on FaceTime?

    Can I use one password and email address for two separate Apple computers (ie., iMac & MacBook Pro)?

    This could be a complicated problem to solve, as there are many possible causes for it. Test after taking each of the following steps that you haven't already tried. Back up all data before making any changes.
    Before proceeding, test on another network, if possible. That could be a public Wi-Fi hotspot, if your computer is portable, or a cellular network if you have a mobile device that can share its Internet connection. If you find that iMessage works on the other network, the problem is in your network or at your ISP, not in your computer.
    Step 1
    Check the status of the service. If the service is down, wait tor it to come back up. There may be a localized outage, even if the status indicator is green.
    Step 2
    Restart your broadband device and your router, if different. You may have to skip this step if you don't control those devices.
    Step 3
    From the menu bar, select
     ▹ About This Mac
    Below the "OS X" legend in the window that opens, the OS version appears. Click the version line twice to display the serial number. If the number is missing or obviously invalid, take the machine to an Apple Store or other authorized service center to have the problem corrected.
    Step 4
    Back up all data, then take the steps suggested in this support article.
    There are five steps in that article. Please take all of them. If you don't understand some of the steps or can't carry them out, ask for guidance.
    Step 5
    From the menu bar, select
     ▹ System Preferences ▹ Network
    If the preference pane is locked, click the lock icon in the lower left corner and enter your password to unlock it. Then click the Advanced button and select the Proxies tab. If any proxy options are selected, make a note of them and then deselect them. You don’t need to change the bypass or FTP settings. Click OK and then Apply. Test. The result may be that you can't connect to any web server. Restore the previous settings if that happens.
    Step 6
    Select from the menu bar
     ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player ▹ Storage
    and click
    Block all sites from storing information on this computer
    Close the preference pane.
    Step 7
    Enable guest logins* and log in as Guest. Don't use the Safari-only “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac.”
    While logged in as Guest, you won’t have access to any of your personal files or settings. Applications will behave as if you were running them for the first time. Don’t be alarmed by this; it’s normal. If you need any passwords or other personal data in order to complete the test, memorize, print, or write them down before you begin.
    Test while logged in as Guest. After testing, log out of the guest account and, in your own account, disable it if you wish. Any files you created in the guest account will be deleted automatically when you log out of it.
    *Note: If you’ve activated “Find My Mac” or FileVault, then you can’t enable the Guest account. The “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac” is not the same. Create a new account in which to test, and delete it, including its home folder, after testing.
    If iMessage worked in the guest account, stop here and post your results.
    Step 8
    Boot in safe mode and log in. Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including Wi-Fi on certain iMacs.  The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and test again.
    If iMessage worked in safe mode, but didn't work when you booted out of safe mode, stop here and post your results.
    Step 9
    Reset the NVRAM.
    Step 10
    Reinstall OS X.
    Step 11
    If none of the above steps resolves the issue, make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store, or contact Apple Support.

  • Unable to use the same email address for a new blackberry Id

    I was unable to enter my blackberry Id password and so after the last attempt,the date I want to create a new ID with the same email I used before but the system is telling me that this email is associated with an existing ID.please what do I do now

    Correct, you can't create a new BBID based on an email associated with a previous BBID.
    Read this for instructions to reset your existing BlackBerryID password:
    KB26361How to reset a BlackBerry ID password
    You have to remember either the BlackBerryID password, or the secret question answer. Without either, you're stuck.
    Your choices are:
    --Use another email account to create an entirely new BlackBerryID (with which you will lose access to any purchased apps using the "forgotten" first BlackBerryID, or
    --Find the initial email you were sent to confirm the initial BlackBerryID, and in it is a link to click to cancel and delete the account. Click on that, delete the account and then you can use that same email to create an entirely new account.
    Good luck.

  • I can not use the same ip address for three NDGs ACS.!

    Hello. Install ACS 4.2 Build 124 Patch 13, I created three NDGs, My server has the IP, adding the same three NDGs server gives me this error:
    An overlapping IP range conflicts have been detected with ACS entry of
    besides, if you add a server with an IP that does not exist and then remove it, do not get such option to remove.
    suggestions on this?

    Hi Kevin,
    Please change the ip of the server to any random ip like and submit the cahnges. After that go to start > run > services.msc and restart the Csadmin services. This would required re-login to ACS GUI.
    Go to the same server > edit the changes and you would see delete + apply option.
    NOTE: The above steps are only applicable for ACS windows.

  • Can I use an alias email address for FaceTime?

    I have set up facetime with my main apple id on my new ipad but wish to use one of my alias email addresses.  When I try and add it, the application says,
    "FaceTime Activation
    An error occurred while verifying your email"
    Any ideas on how to make an alias work on facetime?

    Hi oxshott,
    I have the same issue. I do not want to give out my account name, but only one of the aliase to friends and others. That's the reason for using aliases: to keep the main account hidden.
    I went into the AppleID website, only to find out that this is not possible. It's only there where you get an informative answer. Therefore it seems that what we both want to do - protect our accounts - is not intended by Apple.
    I personally cannot understand why Apple wants us to log into Facetime using an actual AppleID. There's no need for it and should be only a small change for Apple.
