Phew - thanks for removing the caps lock, drpainams. And thanks for wishing us good luck. FaceTime Partner is just a side project for us. We saw the opportunity and took it. I really hope the site stays clean, but hey, it's a free country. For now, we've been getting positive feedback. The trickiest thing is getting enough people on the site at once. Take care, and have a great 4th of July, everyone!

I've tried a few times but haven't been able to get a match.
Maybe you could set up special event dates and times to try to get a good number of people on at the same time. For example: "July 4th FaceTime Party! Wish other iPhone 4 owners a happy 4th of July over FaceTime. Join the fun July 4th at 8pm!". Something like that. Then people would know when to come back to the site.
Also, a better explanation of what the process is of finding a partner on your website. It's kina vague right now and I, for one, was hesitant of typing in my number.

Thanks for the suggestions, isaac65 and chobbs1. We will set up a FaceTime Partner meetup this coming week, and I'll post the time in this forum. Chobbs1, we have designed (but not coded) a system whereby everyone would have to login first through Twitter, and you would be able to pre-screen whom you want to talk to before giving out your #. We're just waiting to see if the site has enough visitors to justify this investment of time required for coding. So, if you want to help FaceTimePartner.com succeed, keeping posting on this forum and letting others know about it. Thank you so much for the support!

Reminder: If you're looking for someone (not a CSR from Apple) to try FaceTime with, go to facetimepartner.com for an official FTP meetup tonight, Thursday, at 9:00 pm PST. 2 clicks and you could be talking on FaceTime about LeBron's incredible decision to join the Chicago Bulls, I mean the New York Knicks, I mean the Miami Heat!

Noaim, on Facetimepartner.com, you do not have to leave your # to be connected to someone. If someone else leaves their #, you can just block your caller id and call them. Our stats show that plenty of people are willing to leave their #, making it easy to have connections.
Also, we have identified several ways to connect people with nobody leaving their #. We know of one way that isn't particularly elegant but that works, and which we could implement very quickly. This is all part of the evolutionary process of our site.
Thanks for checking us out, regardless, and hopefully we'll see some of you tonight at 9 pm!
