    I've installed the Facetime beta, but I'm not getting any contacts listed for me to call.

    I suspect that this is because I have all of my contacts stored on an Exchange based email account (in order that it can sync between all of my devices, etc), rather than being stored "On My Mac".

    Can anyone with a similar configuration confirm that they have the same problem?

    This is going to be dead on arrival if I can't call people - I'm certainly not going to duplicate all of my existing contacts in my Address Book to a second copy stored "On My Mac" in Address Book just to be able to dial someone.

    Yep ... exactly the same problem here. Annoying … :mad:

    There is an issue with the FaceTime beta - it only shows local contacts (i.e. not ones from Exchange). I guess it will be fixed before release
