    You need to have her email/apple id she uses for her FaceTime on her ipad and have it in your contacts and use facetime from your iPhone and it should call her

    It's not really that complicated - does she have an apple id? If not, that would be the complicated part - walking her through setting it up. Once she has one, you can add it as a contact on your iPhone and use the Facetime button in her contact to "call" her. You may already know this but you both need to be on wifi for it to work. Good luck.

    Does she have and iPad or and iPad 2? An iPad 2 is the only iPad capable of FaceTime.

    If you're trying to get her to call you, it might be confusing with you giving her second hand instructions. Why can't you just call her, or is it more difficult for a young person? If you call her, all she has to do is tap to answer with no instruction or explanation necessary.

    Yes, I'm just a bit offended at your agism, and think you should make the effort here and not blame it on your grandmother.

    im in IT as a profession.. IN all honestly there is a few older people who get technology but a ton of them just dont.. They never grew up with it and most of them dont really even want to use it. getting my mother (58) to get a iphone has been very difficult she sometimes doesn't even understand how to answer a call on it. So unfortunately agism exists.

    To be fair, the OP didn't exercise "agism". It wouldn't matter how old the other party is - if they are new to ipad - any other person can't call them unless they know their apple id/email address.

    Why don't you just set up an apple ID for her and give her the username and password ?

    I think this is pretty agist "Oh boy this sounds complicated! She's in fl I'm in ny and she's 72!!! Thanks for the instructions!"

    It's not complicated for the OP to ask her grandmother "what's your email address." And since the iPad can send a FaceTime request to a phone number, it's Apple simple for someone with an iPad 2 to initiate a FaceTime call to someone in their address book.

    And as a general note, as a 50+ tech specialist, there are as many tech illiterate 20 and 30 somethings as 60 and 70 somethings.

    Sorry, but no way this is true.

    No there isn't and if you are on WI-FI there is nothing taken away from your cellular data usage either.
