I know this possible because I've read about it.
I can't get mine to work though.

I can FT iPad to iPhone no problem.

How do i FT iPad to iPad?

When I FT iPad to iPhone, my iPhone contact has a blue camera in their contact info.
When I try to FT iPad to iPad, there is no blue camera in the contact info.

I know the contact information is correct.

What am I doing wrong?

You need to have one Apple ID associated with each device, or a phone number in the case of the iPhone. That's all you should need to get it to work. Make sure it's a different ID for each.

If I recall correctly, it only puts the camera there after a successful contact attempt. You need to make sure the info you have in your contacts is the same info they associated with their iPad.
