Question FACETIME FOR IPOD TOUCH not working

Help please!! I received an iPod touch for Christmas and have two problems.

#1. I am using my mums Apple ID, as she has an iPad. I want to use the games centre, but I can't because the apple ID is already in use. Can you use games centre between 2 people with only 1 apple ID?

#2. I want to use FaceTime on my iPod. I have put in my mums Apple ID (which she doesn't use for FaceTime because she doesn't have it) and pressed 'sign in'. every time I do this, a box comes up saying 'sign in failed, please check your internet connection and try again' even though I have a connection. This happens every time I try to use facetime and haven't been able to use it yet. I am really confused!

Many thanks,
Confuzzled

Hello all,

I know this post is a little bit old but I think I have the solution to this issue. A friend was having the same issue and we found that your apple id must be the same as your primary email address, if this condition is not met then facetime won't work on the ipod touch (although it works directly on a mac).

So, what you have to do to in order to fix this is going to the apple web site, sign in using your apple id, and click on edit Apple ID; then set it using your primary email account and that's it, when your apple ID and your email address are the same, the ipod can work perfectly with facetime.

Hope this helps =)
