Facetime calls in NZ ?
I have a friend who just picked up an Iphone4 and we wanted to try out Facetime. But have been getting error messages when we try;
'user is not available for Facetime' -or similar
We are on different networks (Vodafone and 2 Degrees) so I don't know if that is an issue.
Anyone been able to make this work ?
I've called 2degrees to Vodafone no issue. You are both connected to wifi at the time yes? FaceTime requires an active wifi connection . . .
I've had this quite often when trying to call my brother in the UK even though I know he is available.
Yes, we are both on wifi
Check your router (at home) settings, there are three ports that need to be open. Not sure where it is, but there is a thread about this on the Apple.com forums.
