Is there a way I can disassociate the iOS Simulator from my iChat calls, currently I am working on my app and I am using iChat for a video call and the in-call status bar comes and I can't toggle it off.

It actually says that it's a FaceTime call.


I am developing an iPhone application and I am using he iOS Simulator application to test it. However I am also using iChat to speak to someone on a video call at the same time on my mac.

Consequently in my iOS simulator, the green in-call status bar is appearing. This is stopping me working on some things in my app and I am trying to find a way to switch it off.

I don't know about the iPhone simulator, but if this was happening on an actual iPhone, I would associate the phone with a different Apple ID.

Can you do that in the simulator?
