    She can edit your contact to add ur email to it and have her face time to the email address. When she goes to ur contact and touches FaceTime it will giver her the option of what to use for FaceTime. She selects email and ur good to go.

    You can get pictures on your pod a number of different ways.

    Facetime isn't driven by telephone numbers but by Apple ID's. You just happen to have your old contact with a telephone number assigned to an AppleID/iPhone. My son can FaceTime me from his iPod Touch and his contact for me shows my telephone number. But it can ring on my iPad at the same time since both my iPhone and iPad use the same AppleID.

    Yes I failed to cover that part. So when you set up your device you enter your email that your ID is attached to. an ID can have lots of emails. We have 4 for our account (Wife, Myself and 2 kids). So she adds your email thats on your device to your contact on her phone, computer, touch.
