Set Up FaceTime for iPod Touch
Set Up FaceTime for iPod Touch: Making and receiving video calls with Apple’s FaceTime technology is simple. Apple has engineered a solution that lets you make video calls over Wi-Fi to an iPad 2 or later, iPhone 4, another iPod touch (fourth-generation or later), or a Mac running Mountain Lion or a newer operating system.
FaceTime can use the cameras in either portrait or landscape orientation and you can use either the front or back camera. The front camera has the right field of view and focal length to focus on your face at arm’s length, but you can switch to the back camera to show what’s happening around you.
To use FaceTime on an iPod touch, you need to be connected to the Internet over Wi-Fi. The person you’re calling also needs to be connected to the Internet over Wi-Fi or cellular and using a device that can run FaceTime. You also need to sign into FaceTime using the FaceTime app and an Apple ID. Once you’ve signed in, you don’t need to do it again for every call.
Since all iPhones have phone numbers associated with them, making video calls from phone to phone makes sense. But the iPod touch doesn’t have a phone number attached to it, so you have to create a FaceTime account to be able to place FaceTime calls to other iPod touches or iPhone 4s.
To begin setting up a 4th generation iPod touch to use FaceTime, tap the FaceTime icon in the top-left corner of the iPod touch’s home screen.
On the next screen, click the Get Started button.
Sign Into iTunes Account/Apple ID (first, you must create it). You’ll only see this screen if you need to create a new iTunes account. All the fields on this form are pretty self-explanatory–the only real decision is whether you want to receive marketing emails from Apple.
Create FaceTime Address – in order for your iPod touch to be able to receive FaceTime calls, you have to create a FaceTime address, which is an email address. By default, FaceTime will use the address associated with your iTunes account. If you want to use another email address, enter it here.
With that, you’re ready to start using FaceTime. If you’ve got contacts synced to your iPod touch, they’ll appear in this area. You can add new FaceTime contacts by tapping the plus button at the top right. Now you have set up FaceTime.
Keep in mind that in order for FaceTime to work, you’ll need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network and calling someone using a FaceTime-enabled device.
Once you are, here’s how to use FaceTime on the iPod touch: Tap on the FaceTime app to launch it, scroll through your contacts to find the person you want to call, tap the name of that person or his phone number if he has a FaceTime-enabled iPhone. If this person has an iPod touch, iPad, or Mac, tap on the email address associated with their FaceTime account to initiate the call.
