FaceTime and iMessage
FaceTime and iMessage are two more of Apple's services. The first, FaceTime, allows you to make and receive video calls from your iPad Mini to fellow iOS and even Mac users. iMessage allows you to exchange photos and text-based messages with iOS and Mac users.
When you set up your Apple ID, you added an e-mail address to your account. This e-mail address, plus your iCloud e-mail address, will be the addresses people can call or message you on. If you have an iPhone or get one in the future, your phone number will also be used.
This screen lets you select the address you can be reached at if you decide you want to use a specific one instead of more than one.
