Apple developed unique communication technology for iPhone, iPad, iMac, and MacBook machines. The Cupertino-based manufacturer invented FaceTime that rivaled then competition Skype, which was the primary choice of consumers for video conferencing. FaceTime is indeed a better choice as it can stream visual content and audio content in high-quality, and it also depends on internet connectivity. FaceTime requires your Apple ID and phone number to create a unique line of communication. You can change your FaceTime numbers or caller ID on an iPhone or iPad by following simple instructions.
How to Change your FaceTime Phone Number on iPhone and iPad?
The following instruction works on iOS 12 and iOS 13. Make sure to check the software version and FaceTime options to change the number in the device. Make sure to stay connected to the internet via Wi-Fi or carrier connectivity services.
- Tap on “Settings” and then find and click on “FaceTime” to continue.
- Click on the button to disable “FaceTime” on the phone.
- Tap to “Sign Out” Apple ID.
As you can see that I don’t have the sign-out option and I’m getting “Use Other Apple ID,” then I have another solution for you. There are multiple ways you can stop the device from receiving audio and video calls in FaceTime.
Remove SIM Card
FaceTime is directly connected to Apple ID and phone number. The video conference technology works with your phone number, and removing the SIM card from the device will automatically deregister in the iPhone or iPad. Removing the physical requirement of SIM will force the iPhone and iPad to revoke access from the server. The server of FaceTime won’t deregister the phone number whatsoever, but it will stop providing the services.
If you no longer have access to the iPhone or iPad with FaceTime register in it, then you can revoke access in one moment. Change your Apple ID password, and it will prompt the device holders to enter the password to continue.
Existing Apple ID users can change the password via device or website. I suggest the users change the password via the official iCloud website and it allows you to control the connect devices, and revoke access in a few moments.
Apple did provide alternative options to deregister or change mobile numbers, but there is a risk of losing personal FaceTime data in the process. Make sure to create a backup of personal files including SMS and FaceTime records as a precaution. Let us know which method worked for you in the comment section below.
