I created the account on the ipod and I am able to make a connection between the devices in my living room on a wi fi connection but if I try to use the iphone out of range of the wifi it does not connect, it states wifi is needed
Please tell me that you can face time without a wifi connection on the iphone and use my celluar signal like if im driving and want to facetime to talk with my kids on the ipod at home where they would have wifi.
I think it's dumb to not let users have a choice, but I can see, from the carriers' perspective, why they would not want facetime over 3G. Video-chat is a resource hog, and I don't think anyone wants their cell-phone networks compromised anymore.
NYC has bad enough cell service when enough people are hitting cell towers, can you imagine the same number of people video-chatting?
With LTE, you might see it, because the data-pipes are much bigger.
I'm over-simplifying it, I'm sure, but that's it in a nut-shell.
