I have other iOS devices that facetime rings on. The only way I was able to get my MBP to receive a call was to have facetime on - on the computer. May be annoying as the camera will always be on too.

I generally use skype as I have many PC friends without iOS/Mac devices - runs more like iChat - where you have a window open - and you can choose to start a video chat. Works on iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch with proper equipment.

Is her iPad attempting to "call" you using your phone number (not gonna work) or your email address (should work)? Is FaceTime continuously on on your Mac (the only way that's gonna work)?
