Switch Caller ID on FaceTime to protect your mobile number

This trick is very similar to the iMessage trick I posted here

1. Settings > General > FaceTime > Toggle ON
2. Click Use your Apple ID for FaceTime

3. Plug-in your AAPL ID and password and click next


4. Click Add Another Email Address

5. Input your @me.com address and it should verify pretty fast, now scroll down to Caller ID.


6. Now select your @me.com address and just go back or exit using the home button.
7. Now you can receive FaceTime calls via 3 locations your mobile, your AAPL ID, and your @me.com address. You may remove your AAPL ID if that suites you.
8. Again. This is for placing FaceTime calls to new contacts (who may not have your mobile number), old contacts who have your mobile number or AAPL ID can and will be able to call you.
9. You can add more email addresses and use these for FaceTime caller ID. The logic behind this is: it is easier to filter emails vs changing your mobile number just in case you inadvertently contact someone who is nosy or always calling. Also removing the email link from FaceTime you are not reachable to that set any more. ;-) whyish!
10. Currently my caller ID is set to my business facing email.

All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image

VGA:
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
--
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
