If you've ever suffered through a long-distance relationship, you're familiar with the painful mix of love, longing, and resentment.
But technology was supposed to make it so much easier. Let me just say this: I didn't see the iceberg coming.
After I correctly removed my Apple ID, I’ve not received another Face Time request since then.
To remove your Apple ID, be sure to tap the “Delete Email From Site” tab directly below the action bar where you entered your Apple ID in the first place.
If you’ve successfully deleted your email, the tab will instead read, “Face Time Plus.”I misunderstood how to remove my Apple ID the first time and received a Face Time request about 10 minutes later.
I'm also digging Hey Tell, an app that turns your i Phone into a walkie-talkie—like sending a text with your voice. As for the extended high-school-style phone calls, we limited those to a few times a week—you know, so we actually had something new to say—and saved Skype for the really lonely nights.
But most importantly, we threw money at airline tickets.
Sometimes my dude and I would get so frustrated with buffering video that we'd talk on our more reliable cell phones instead while staring at pilated images of each other on our laptops. ) It's like an episode of Maybe the Internet gods were trying to warn us.
Because what this technology really offers is faux intimacy: It's the perception of intimacy with the added hangover that comes with waking up in a queen-size bed next to nothing but your laptop. So I fashioned a plan that kept my boyfriend and me connected but wasn't so all-consuming that it killed our respective lives.
When you enter your Apple ID, it will remain in Face Time Plus’ database until you manually remove it.
Other users will be able to connect with you at any time.
You can choose to connect with the user via audio-only, text message, or Face Time.
You can also choose to find a different “Face Timer” instead. That is, you may connect with a nice person who just wants to meet new people and make friends around the world.
And then there's that old-fangled standby, Skype.
