    I just got a new 4s, and I thought facetime was supposed to be on it. It is not. Nor can I find it in the app store?

    Hello! I'm assuming you have iPad? The iPhone doesn't have a FaceTime app built in, like the iPad. You must have an email with the person you want to FaceTime with. Then when you go to the contacts page, it will say the persons number, email, share, etc. there should be a FaceTime button.

    I do have another question about the 4 s. I can use Siri with pressing and holding the home button but is it also an app?

    No, that's the only way to use it.

    And you can raise it up to your cheek like your taking a phone call and speak.

    Where do I go to find the kinds of questions I can ask Siri?

    Activate Siri, then there should be an "I" in the right hand corner of the Siri dock. That shows the basics. We have a funny Siri screenshot thread Here, and of course you can also just test things. I just thought of normal words like hi, or what's up and it responded! Be careful, she has a mouth. :)

    I know how to do a screen shot on the computer but not on the iPad. It looks like freckles. Usually yellow.

    Hold down the sleep and home briefly.

    This shouldn't be happening. Is there something on the lense?

    It could be your Internet connection or the connection of the other party.

    You can get a screen capture on your iPhone (and iPad as well) by pushing the home button and power button at the same time. It will place the screen shot in you camera roll.

    Good luck.

    That's what I was wondering. I first noticed it on my grandson's face when he and I were on FaceTime. Thought maybe something oh his lens. But now I have seen it on my iPad and on my husband's. Weird. Will try cleaning lens? Can't do screen shot tonight, as hubby has turned out lights, and FaceTime doesn't work in the dark. Will try tomorrow.

    Maybe that's it, since I've seen it on three different iPads.
