Turn on FaceTime
Open your FaceTime app and sign in with your Apple ID (you can also do this from Settings > FaceTime).
If you're using an iPhone, FaceTime automatically registers your phone number. To also register your email address on your iPhone, tap Settings > FaceTime > Use your Apple ID for FaceTime, and sign in.
If you're using an iPad or iPod touch, register your email address by tapping Settings > FaceTime > Use your Apple ID for FaceTime, and sign in.
Make a FaceTime call
To make a FaceTime call, you need the person's phone number or registered email address. There are a few ways to make a FaceTime call:
- In the FaceTime app, enter the person's phone number or email address then tap the FaceTime video or audio icon.
- If you have the person's phone number or email address saved in your Contacts, you can enter their name, then tap the video or audio icon.
- You can also begin a FaceTime video call from your iPhone during a call. Tap the FaceTime icon during the phone call to talk using FaceTime.
Use FaceTime Audio with Call Waiting
If you have iOS 8 or later, you can use Call Waiting during a FaceTime audio call. When another call comes in—either a phone call or another FaceTime audio call—you can either:
- End the current call and accept the incoming call.
- Accept the incoming call and put the current call on hold.
- Decline the incoming call.
