What is FaceTime and issues of activation and correction of errors in work
Owners of modern Apple-devices know thatIn the latest models among pre-installed applications there is a program called FaceTime. What is FaceTime, what does this application need, how to work with it and how to fix some errors, now and see. There is nothing complicated here, since most users have already encountered programs of this type, although they may not even guess about it. Meanwhile, it is so.
What is FaceTime?
The very application of FaceTime is smalla program for making video calls, conducting regular telephone conversations and correspondence through text messages. Speaking of what FaceTime is, by and large it can be noted that this application is a kind of truncated analogue of the famous Skype program, in which there are a few more possibilities. There are some features of the Viber application (for example, binding a mobile number).
Immediately need to pay attention to the fact thatThe application works only on certain types of "apple" devices, namely, on iPhone 4 and higher, iPad mini or iPad 2 and higher, iPod of the fourth generation and above, as well as in laptops and fixed Apple computers with Mac OS X version 10.6 installed. 6 and newer. However, when considering some aspects of application activation and possible failures, we will focus on mobile gadgets.
So, before using the application,it is necessary to register and activate a new profile. To do this, after enabling Wi-Fi network access and launching the application, create a profile using your own Apple ID with an e-mail address and password, and then you have to bind the existing mobile number to the program settings.
If there are problems with e-mail, in the settings you can add another address, and by and large, generally create a new Apple ID.
FaceTime does not work: possible application errors
But not always the initial setting looks likeabsolutely smooth. There may be errors. Most often, activation of FaceTime fails. The error itself looks like a constantly hanging inscription under the inclusion slider on the waiting for activation.
Most specialists link thisthe problem with the transition to a new version of the operating system (most often with the change of iOS 6 on iOS 7). About violations of communication and connection to VPN networks via WiFi speech is not going now. In this case, the application simply will not start.
Methods for correcting failures
As for the correction of this error, hereThe most basic thing is to check the basic parameters specified at the first registration. But first you can try to just reboot the device. In some cases, this helps, if the program is disabled beforehand, and restarted after the device restart. At the same time, you do not need to turn on the device at once, it's better to sustain a pause in about 5-10 seconds (by the way, it is recommended to restart the system after data entry in order, almost like in Windows, for the changes to take effect).
If the problem persists, there really isit is necessary to do some checking of the parameters. But, say, all the data entered correctly, but activation persistently does not work. In this situation, it is necessary to proceed as follows.
Go to the main settings and select the sectionreset, in which you want to tap on the reset line of the network parameters. In addition, it is worth paying attention to the limitations section, where the camera and the application itself should be included.
Also, in some cases, the setting of automatic parameters for the date and time can help.
Sometimes you can use the Send and Receive section where you just need to log out of your Apple ID and then log in again.
You can also disable FaceTime in messages,remove the SIM card, enable the application again and enter the e-mail address of your Apple ID. Next, you need to insert the card into the slot, then there will be two messages indicating possible remedies for the malfunction, where you must definitely abandon their use.
Finally, in the settings you need to go to the section of calendars, mail and addresses, select the item of your data in the contacts and choose yourself, yes, yes, yourself.
There may be one more problem related toFaceTime. "Megafon" (operator of cellular communication) for the correct network setting offers its own parameters. Therefore, their values should be checked in the appropriate settings. In extreme cases, you can contact the operator or make a request to resend the automatic settings to the specified number in the form of a Push message.
In general, it seems, it is already clear what isFaceTime and how to fix some glitches regarding permanently hanging activation. By the way, the above methods are also suitable for correcting some other problems that may arise when using applications that require constant access to the Internet with support for a registered Apple ID account. But in general, the most workable method is the way to reset the network settings with a re-connection after. This is confirmed by the overwhelming majority of specialists and users.
