I am not able to receive or deliver iMessages on my MacBook Air. First I make you clear that it's activated and it can detect iMessage Id's(when I send a message, there's no delviver ticket at the bottom).

I am able to receive and send messages from my iPhone with no problem. I tried various methods to resolve this, one is by removing account from preferences and by login in again.

And same issue with facetime, I am able to receive calls and as soon as I accept it and error
Pops up as "FaceTime failed" .

I've got a similar issue. iMessage works fine, but Facetime rings and shows in my dock, but when I click on it nothing happens. There is no way to answer the call.

When my sister called me on FaceTime and I accepted her call, then she was about connecting it to me but suddenly it is failed or even the screen is "disappeared." I FaceTime-d her, and it kept saying that it is failed.

I tested it to call my friend using his iMac, and it was fine.

I wonder that my sister's iPad2 or iMac needs to be updated on the operating system.
