Solution: Check and make sure that all FaceTime devices are up-to-date on the software end. If not, update them.

So, take a deep breath and analyse what could be wrong with your device settings or permissions that may be causing this error. The most common cause of the problem is that FaceTime was never active on the device in the first half resulting in its inability to work.

3. FaceTime call failed

There are several reasons that can lead to failure to make a call. These include lack of FaceTime in your country, a weak internet connection or having FaceTime disabled on your device. Other reasons may include having Camera or FaceTime restricted on your iPhone by accident or otherwise.


1. go to FaceTime settings and check if FaceTime is enabled. If not, allow If however, was already enabled, try disabling first and then allowing it again.
2. Go to General Restrictions settings and check if the camera and FaceTime have been limited.
3. If the problem persists, turn off the iPhone and then turn it on again.

4. iMessage waiting for activation

This is a common problem that results from incorrectly setting date and time settings or invalid cell or Wi-Fi connection. Users facing this problem, a message saying “iMessage waiting for activation” just to get the “activation of iMessage failed” shortly after.


1. Make sure your Wi-Fi connection and the cellular connection is valid and active. Also, check your Apple ID to see if it is valid and check the date and time settings.
2. go to settings messages and activate iMessages and deactivate.
3. If the problem persists, turn off the iPhone and then turn it on again.

5. FaceTime shows error

You get an error while trying to activate FaceTime saying “I could not sign in. Please check your network connection and try again”? This dangerous looking problem is caused by some very basic issues like an Apple Id that does not follow the standard format of an email address. Weak internet connection can also be a cause of the FaceTime signal in error.


1. If your Apple ID is not in the standard email format, convert it to one or get a new Apple ID. Try signing with the new ID, you will easily find signed in FaceTime.
2. Change the DNS settings to Google’s public DNS ie or and try to sign up for FaceTime once again.

6. can not connect to a person on FaceTime

The most likely cause of not being able to connect to another person on FaceTime is to add them to your blocked list accidentally.

Solution: Go to Locked FaceTime Settings and check if the desired contact appears in the blocked list. If so, unlock them by clicking the red icon right next to their name.

7. Unable to receive iMessages on iPhone 6

Everything seems fine but you are still unable to receive iMessages on the iPhone 6? Well, this may have caused due to a defective network configuration that can be easily addressed with the method explained later.

Solution: Go to General Settings Reset Restore Network Settings and let the iPhone do its thing. Once you restart and connect to a network, you will be able to receive iMessages normally.

8. FaceTime does not work on iPhone 6

If you still have problems with FaceTime on the iPhone 6, it is high time that you did a thorough examination of the problem.


1. Disable FaceTime and switch to airplane mode.
2. Turn on Wi-Fi and turn on FaceTime too.
3. Disable plane mode, if you are prompted for the Apple Id, provide it and little FaceTime will start working on the iPhone 6.

9. Ported FaceTime themes 

Switching operators on an iPhone can also sometimes result in problems with the operation of FaceTime. If this happens, contact your operator and inform them of the problem. In most cases, changing the sim card solves the problem very easily.

10. FaceTime does not work in my country

Some countries like Saudi Arabia do not have FaceTime for iPhone users. If you are in that country, you may have to look for some alternatives as in most cases, iPhones to such regions also lack the FaceTime application installed on them.

11. The FaceTime application is missing

FaceTime is not available worldwide so the FaceTime application does not come preinstalled on all iOS devices. So, if FaceTime is not available in your country, unfortunately, you will not have a FaceTime application preinstalled, you will not work around this problem and all you can do is check the source of your purchase device to see if it is going to Have the FaceTime app or not.

      yea thats true man If you have ever used for FaceTime audio calls, you’ll know what it means to listen to a person who may be thousands of kilometers away as if you had only a foot. Clear sound without cuts, and conversation experience that has nothing to do with conventional telephone calls.

  • Mc clark

    Have you ever wondered why FaceTime is not available for Android, the reason is because unlike other applications, FaceTime is built into the ios application, which means it is already on your device and is not available to add through the Apple application store. The only way to reinstall FaceTime an Apple product is to reinstall OS X or iOS operating system that has included.
