    Default Change number=FaceTime issue

    There is a known problem, I got hit with today already. After changing phone numbers FaceTime would only work (incoming) on the old number. It is a known issue and a easy fix. Turn off FaceTime then back on then go to settings and do a reset. Cleared up my problem just like that. I figure there will be lots of number swapping and this will help you from being as frustrated as I was. I was dreading another call to a CSR then found the answer.

    With my son in the US Navy stationed in Italy. He has vodophone ip4. Face time to face time saves a lot of cash.

    This is probably a dumb question, but where is Facetime? I don't see it on my iPhone.

    You can initiate Facetime from the call screen once you're connected or from the texting screen.

    But make sure it is enabled in the phone settings.

    Yes, I've reset all settings, and keep turning facetime on under Phone settings, but it won't stay in the ON position, and it won't work
