    I tried using FaceTime between my iPad 2 and my iPad 3. Each time, there's a continuous ringtone on the iPad that's initiating the FaceTime session, and the receiving iPad says "Connecting..." Then, after a minute or two, both iPads say "FaceTime failed." I alternated the sending and receiving roles between the two iPads and that did not make a difference.

    Then I tried FaceTime between the iPad 2 and my Macbook Pro. Everything worked nicely!

    I tried FaceTime between my iPad 3 and my MBP: nope. Same error.

    Then I tried it between my iPad 3 and my iPhone 4s: nope. Same error.

    What?:confused: This is strange! Does anyone else have issues with FaceTime on your new iPad 3rd gen? Anything I can do?

    I had this briefly yesterday between 2 iPad 3s. So I put each one into airplane mode briefly then it worked afterwards.
