    Do you have to have the iPod turned on to get messages or facetime? I use messages and facetime to contact my wife and she does not know it unless her iPod is on. Am I doing something wrong is the something in her settings that should be changed? Please help. Thanks

    Probably something in the settings of her iPod Touch (I assume that's what you mean -- other iPods can't use FaceTime).

    She will also of course need to be somewhere with Wi-Fi and connected to that network to use or receive FaceTime, since the iPod Touch can't use 3G/LTE.

    My question is..Do you have to have the iPod turned on to get messages or facetime? To be notified.

    It has to be at least in standby mode. It cannot be fully powered off. If you hit the home key it should immediately come to life if it is in standby.

    She is in standby but it doesn't come on or ring or in anyway notify her that she is getting a message until she hit's the home key. and slides to unlock.
    I don't know what is going wrong or if this is the natural behavior. For an iPod.
