My husband and I both have facetime on our laptops. I believe we both are using the same apple id. Does he have to have a seperate apple id so we can use face time?

I believe you can manage your laptops with one Apple id, but I recommend that you have individual Calling ID's for each laptop.  This calling ID is under the "You can be reached for calls at:"  line when your in Facetime preferences. This will allow you two guys to call each other on your laptops, plus you don't have to be bothered by people calling him, or visa versa.

  • When extending my wifi network using an Extreme as my main and an Express to extend.. does it help to make sure that both devices are on the same channel or does it even make a difference if they are on different channels?

    when extending my wifi network using an Extreme as my main and an Express to extend.. does it help to make sure that both devices are on the same channel or does it even make a difference if they are on different channels?

    Have you even tried the process in which i have described in my previous post?
    Yes, many times.  If you are setup to "extend a wireless network, the screen looks like this:
    If you click the Wireless Options button, the screen looks like this:
    Where is it on this screen that you see a setting to adjust the channel?  It sounds like you are confusing "create a wireless network"....which does allow you to adjust channels.....with "exend a wireless network" which does not.
    Normally, when you extend a wireless network, AirPort Utility used to always assign the same channel to the extending device. That is no longer the case. It might be the same, or it might be different.  You have no control over this, so you have to accept what AirPort Utility thinks is best.

  • I have an iPhone 5 from India. I am going to USA for studying. Can I use the same iPhone over there or I will have to buy a new one?

    I have an iPhone 5 from India. I am going to USA for studying. Can I use the same iPhone over there or I will have to buy a new one?

    If officially unlocked, you can purchase a sim from one of the two nationwide GSM carriers, AT&T or T-Mobile. However, AFAIK, none of the carriers in India offer unlocking for the iPhone. Thus, if your phone is carrier locked, the only way it will work in the US is roaming...that would cost a fortune.
    So, if you have a carrier locked iPhone, leave it home or sell it before you come to the US, then purchase an officially unlocked iPhone, from Apple, when you get to the US. You'll be able to use that phone in India when you go back.

  • I just got my Mac and I used my family Apple ID. It had all of my parent's information, I added my e-mail.I wanted to make my own Apple ID, but I couldn't use the same e-mail address again! How do I delete this information so I can make my own Apple ID?

    It is not clear how or where you "added" your email, but you cannot create an Apple ID using an email address that is already associated with another Apple ID.
    If that is what you did, delete that email address from your family's Apple ID. You should be free to create a new one.
    Do all that by starting here: https://appleid.apple.com/
    Select "Manage your Apple ID". Log in with your family's Apple ID and then delete your own email address wherever it appears.
    Save Changes, log out, and create the new one using the same website. This time select "Create an Apple ID".
    Please don't forget your security questions, and be sure to specify a "rescue email address" that is separate from all other Apple IDs. You will avoid so many problems that way...

  • I customize my paper size and print size and am then viewing a photo on my screen. I print it out and it chops off about 5% of all edges of my original photo on the screen. Why does it do that? It is driving me crazy. I use an Epson Photo 2200 printer.

    What print and paper sizes are you using?  Are you trying to print a borderless print?  Does your printer support borderless for that particular size?  Are you printing to the custom stock size or to a larger stock size?

  • My wife and I have been using the same iTunes account, but would like to have separate apps on our phones.  How can I set up a separate account for her?

    My wife and I have been using the same iTunes account for both our iPhones, but she wants separate apps from mine.  How can I set up a second account in her name, delete the apps on her phone and start from scratch with just the apps she wants on her phone?

    If you have the old phone, connect it to iTunes, right click on the device, and choose transfer purchases.  If you no longer have the old phone, I don't believe there is a way to recover them, as they were on your original device.

  • HT5868 How do I get my iPhone to "always" trust my laptop (using the same USB port) if I don't have iTunes?

    I only connect my iPhone to one laptop; I plug it into the same USB port each time. I do not have (nor do I want) iTunes on this laptop. Hence each time I plug the iPhone into my laptop I have to enable it and hit "Trust". How do I get the iPhone to recognize my laptop indefinitely and only ask the trust question if I ever plug into a different device?

    As far as I know you cannot do so.  The "Trust" setting is actually stored as a line entry in the iTunes preference file.  No iTunes, and there is no Preferences file to record your choice.

  • 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.

  • HT1364 I used these instructions to move my i-tunes library to the external hard drive that two different home pc's access. My playlists do not show on both Is it possible to have one i-pod synch amid two different computers that use the same library?

    I have a sole i-pod and two pc's, used the instructions for "iTunes for Windows: Moving your iTunes Media folder" in the hope that I could synch my one i-pod between two different computers that are sharing the same library. Is it possible to have two seperate computers that only share an external hard drive (one wireless, one not) ? When I am looking at a shared library should it appear the same on both machines (ie: playlists/ purchased list etc)?

    If it is moved correctly, playlists will display on both computers and it should be possible.
    Close iTunes.
    Hold <SHIFT> and launch iTunes.
    When prompted to create a new or open an existing iTunes library point iTunes to the iTunesLibrary.itl file on the external drive.
    The entire library should now show up with all playlists and playcounts.
    Do this on both computers.
    Keep in mind that only one computer can access iTunes at a time, otherwise errors will occur when each computer attempts to write to or update the iTunesLibrary.itl file.
    Syncing may work seemlessly with both computers, but honestly syncing is designed to work with one and only one computer.

  • My daughter and I use the same PC. We have seperate iTunes accounts. . When I subscribed to iTunes Match all her music appeared on my iPhone. What can I do to resolve this

    My daughter and I use the same PC for downloading onto iTunes
    We have different iTunes accounts
    Mine has far less content than hers as you'd expect
    My iPhone only showed the music held in my account until I subscribed to iTunes Match At that point all her music loaded onto my iPhone
    Why? and what do I do to resolve this please?

    iTunes Match is associated with a specific Apple Id. If you use the same Id to enable iTunes Match on your IOS device you will see the same Songs.
    Once iTune Match is enabled on a device (your shared computer for example), Apple cares about not allowing another Apple Id to be associated with that same device for a period of 90 days.  Thus having more than one Apple Id associated with a single device to support multiple active iTunes Match subscriptions is simply not supported.
    Whilst your music would be combined, you can from a single device associate more than one library with iTunes Match - until you can access separate devices this is perhaps the best compromise.

  • Can I delete my old Firefox sync account if I have a new one which uses the same email address?

    Hello,
    I have unlinked all my devices from an old sync account and setup a new sync. In this process I have used the same email address as before.
    I have no use of my old sync account, therefore the question is:
    Can I delete the old sync account (via https://account.services.mozilla.com/ ) and - implicitly - all data associated with it without affecting my new Firefox account (and its data) in any way?
    Thank you!

    Yes you can https://services.mozilla.com/delete-account/ and put in your username and password, and hit permanently delete your account. I personally wouldn't you never know if you may need it in the future.
