FaceTime: I have a iPad, iPhone, iMac all on the same apple Id/account. Without changing id/email address can I use FaceTime between any 2 of my devices? It works from iPad to iPhone but not the other way??? I would like talk/see my kids if am away.
Hope you can help.
I have added a new email address but kept my Id, but I get busy when trying from iPhone to iPad as they are clashing. Like find my iPhone app hence trying to keep them all on one account

IOS: using facetime http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4319
using an ipad will use the email address since you can't make a phone call.  see the link.
Your basically calling/emailing yourself that's why your getting a busy signal.

  • Handoff works from Macbook to IOS but not the other way

    If i open an app on my Macbook Air, i get the handoff to my iPhone 5s no problem.  But it doesn't work the other way - when i open an app on my iPhone nothing happens with my Macbook.
    So i'm guessing my setup must be OK for it to work one way.  What could stop it from working the other way?

    If I create a new iTunes account for the German itunes store, what happened with my previous purchases? Do they remain on my iPhone and my Mac's iTunes?
    Nothing will happen to your existing purchases. Your computer will remain authorized - you can authorize a single computer to up to five iTunes Store accounts - and the apps and content will remain in place.
    Can I switch from one acount to the other every time I want to update an application or purchase a new one?
    As long as you're in the relevant country, yes. Again, the terms of use say that you agree not to even attempt to use an iTunes Store from outside of its country.

  • Hi, I have an old iphone 3 and for Xmas received an iphone 5. I have 2 apple ID accounts, one on each phone, for me to be able to transfer messages, fotos, contacts etc from the iphone 3 to 5 do I have to be using the same Apple ID account?  Many thanks.

    hi everyone, first time using this forum!
    I have an old iphone 3 and for Xmas received an iphone 5. I have 2 apple ID accounts, one on each phone. For me to be able to transfer messages, fotos, contacts etc from the iphone 3 to 5 do I have to be using the same Apple ID account?  Many thanks.

    You should only use one Apple ID for both phones.  All apps that you bought for your 3 are linked forever to the Apple ID used to buy them.  If you set up your iPhone 5 as a new phone, rather than restoring from a backup of the 3, you will lose the messages, but you can sync to get the pix, contacts and music.  It is safer to do it as a new phone, because sometimes restoring a backup from an earlier version of the phone can cause problems in the new phone (as told to me by an Apple store "genius" two days ago.)

  • I want to delete my icloud-account from my iphone 5 and then register again, because I want to change my email-address/account name. What would be the steps to follow? How do I make sure I do not lose any information stored on/in my iphone 5?

    I want to delete my icloud-account from my iphone 5 and then register again, because I want to change my email-address/account name. What would be the steps to follow? How do I make sure I do not lose any information stored on/in my iphone 5?

    You would have to delete the existing iCloud account and create a wholly new one - you cannot change the @icloud.com email address of the one you already have.  To make a new one, you will also need an new AppleID as any AppleID can only have one iCloud account associated with it.
    Deleting the account will not delete anything off your device (if prompted for things like contacts, choose to keep them).  You will have to sync everything anew with the new account as you cannot move your sync'd content, your old backups or anything else from one iCloud account to another.  You will have to set up sync again and let it sync to the new account, and then make new backups to the new account as well.

  • I have 2 ipod touches on the same apple id account.  Can I set facertime up on both with different access emails?

    I have 2 ipod touches on the same apple ID/account.  My daughter uses one, and I use the other.  Can I set facetime up on each with different access email addresses (so that we don't get each others calls?)?

    I recommend that you
    Create a NEW account/ID for her using these instructions. Make sure you follow the instructions. Many do not and if you do not you will not get the None option. You must use an email address that you have not used with Apple before.
      Creating an iTunes Store, App Store, iBookstore, and Mac App Store account without a credit card
    Use the new ID on her iPod but only for:
    Settings>Messages>Send and Receive
    Settings>FaceTime
    Settings>GameCenter
    and Settings>iCloud if you want her to have separate Contacts Calendar and some other things.    
    Continue to use the same/common Apple ID for Settings>iTunes and App stores so you can share purchases.

  • How do I separate my daughters devices from my icloud but use the same apple itunes account?

    How can I separate my daughters icloud account but keep the same apple itunes account?

    To migrate her device to a new account, start by saving any photo stream photos she keep to keep to your camera roll (unless already there) by opening your my photo stream album, tapping Select, tapping the photos, tap the share icon (box with upward facing arrow), then tapping Save to Camera Roll.  If she is syncing any notes with iCloud that she wants to keep on her device, you'll need to open each of them and email them to her so she can later copy and paste the text into new notes created in her new account.  Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account (which only deletes it from this device, not from iCloud; your devices won't be effected by this), choose Keep on My iDevice and provide the password when prompted.  Then sign back in with a different Apple ID to create her new account and choose Merge to upload her data.  (If she has multiple devices, she can go through this same process on the others, but choose Delete from My iDevice when prompted as the data has now already been migrated to the new account.)
    Once you are both on separate accounts you can each go to icloud.com and delete the other person's data from your account if you need to.
    You can continue to share the same iTunes ID.  The ID used for iCloud does not need to be the same as the ID used for iTunes.

    No.
    Power Adapter/ cord wattage
    “Power adapters for Intel-based Apple notebooks are available in 45W, 60W, and 85W varieties. Although you should always use the proper wattage adapter for your Apple notebook, you can use an adapter of a higher wattage without issue.”

  • How can I use the same Apple ID account in two different App Stores?

    I am from Greece and I use my Apple-ID account to download iPhone Apps from the Greek App Store. However I live in Germany and some iPhone applications I want are available only through the German App Store. When I try to download one of them I got the message that my acount cannot be used with the German App Store. Is there any way to be able to have on my phone applications form both the German and the Greek App store at the same time using or not the same Apple ID account? I have got both Greek and German credit cards if this is an issue. Thanks.

  • HT5538 How do you separate multiple iOS devices using the same apple id account for Face Time calls and iMessaging?

    How do you separate multiiple ios devices using the same apple id account for Face Time calls and iMessaging?

    The only way I have seen is to have each device use a if fervent email account, if they all are on the same email the FaceTime connection is either to a phone number or to an email address.  If they ar all on the same email, it is up to the user to decide which to use.

  • IPad2 and a new MacBook running Lion, Both Devices use the same Apple ID which is a Hotmail eMail id. Can I create a new iCloud eMail Id and use iCloud eMail and continue to use my Hotmail Id for my Apple Id and use it for iTunes, iCloud

    I have an iPad2 and a new MacBook running Mountain Lion. Both Devices use the same Apple ID which is a Hotmail eMail id. Can I create a new iCloud eMail Id and use iCloud eMail and continue to use my current Hotmail Id for my Apple Id for iTunes, iCloud.
    Note, I will use both Hotmail and iCloud eMail.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    In order to change your Apple ID or password for your iCloud account on your iOS device, you need to delete the account from your iOS device first, then add it back using your updated details. (Settings > iCloud, scroll down and hit "Delete Account")

  • How can we share ringtones on the same Apple ID/ account

    Just trying to figure out how we can share ringtones that we've purchased on iTunes on our other devices. We have multiple devices on the same Apple ID/ account.

    You'll have to sync them to the various devices, as purchased ringtones cannot be re-downloaded for free.

  • I have ios7.1.2 on my iphone and am trying to upgrade to 8.0.2. I haven't installed 8 yet and when I try and upgrade nothing happens.  It says just the improvements from 8 are available but not the whole ios.  What to do?

    I have ios7.1.2 on my iphone and am trying to upgrade to 8.0.2. I haven't installed 8 yet and when I try and upgrade nothing happens.  It says ios8.0.2  improvements from 8.0.1 are available but not the whole ios.  What to do?

    It sounds like maybe 8.0.1 has downloaded onto your phone but not installed. You can check for it in Settings > General > Usage > Storage, Manage Storage. If it's there you should see it at the top of the list of apps. Swipe to delete it. 8.0.1 was pulled by Apple quickly after it was introduced due to issues and replaced by 8.0.2. Once it's deleted you should be able to download and install 8.0.2.
