I believe you would need to associate both iPhones with different Apple ID to be able to FaceTime between them.

Are you on wifi?

Are you sending SMS or imessage?

Can you text others (non-iphones) with both of your phones?

Phone 2 is on WiFi but Phone 1 is never on WiFi.

And both phones can send and receive tests from others.

You can also try to turn off imessage and try to text each other too

One phone had imessage on and one didn't, under settings messages I turned on imessage. Phones can now receive and send messages to each other.  Thanks for all the help.
