FaceTime: All you need to know if you are a New Comer!

Designed and developed by Apple, FaceTime is an audio and video calling service that is nore or less similar to Skype or Google Hangouts. A calling app, FaceTime is a one-on-one app requiring an Apple ID which on;ly can be accessed by the Apple users. Predictions say that the newer versions might work with 4G or 3G connection, but as for now a Wi-Fi connection is a must, when we talk about FaceTime.  Though for the jailbroken users of iPhone, it is possible to run Face Time with a 3G connection with the help of several applications. But as reported by Lifewire, when iOS 6 was introduced in the year 2012, this Wi-Fi restriction was removed as it has the capability to offer high data bills with a poor and slow performance. Mentioned below are the steps by which you can set to your FaceTime ID.
