    Hello, welcome to the Technobezz

    Hello, welcome to the Technobezz community. First step, is not to panic :)

    Then try these simple potential fixes:

    1. Go to Settings > Facetime and turn it off and on again.

    2.Try going to Settings > General > Date & Time and make sure Set Automatically is On. If you notice that any of the information is wrong then turn Set Automatically off and set the correct time zone, date, and time manually.

    3.Check in Settings > General > Restrictions and make sure you haven’t restricted FaceTime.

    4. Also, it’s worth confirming you don’t have a network problem so try Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings and then set up your Wi-Fi again.

    If nothing has worked then you could try a backup and restore, or head into an Apple Store for further help.

    Thank to this thread, I'll be able to fix the same issue on my phone. I was having the same problem and it's really frustrating.
