Good day everyone,

Here is my question.

I have an iPhone, MBP and and iMac. They are all using the same icloud account which has the synching for notes, calendar, contacts, etc.

I was wondering how does it work if I want to contact via iMessage or Facetime the other devices? Let's say that my wife is at home with the MBP and I am at work with the iPhone. Is there any way to do this?

Thanks

I thought for sure that it wasn't possible to Facetime or Message yourself, but I just tried and you can! Just open Messages or Facetime and initiate a call/message to yourself.
