    Nope that was for the ipod once you enter a number or add contact you will see a little button that says call or facetime hope that helps

    If you wanna facetime someone go into your contacts and select the person, then hit the Facetime button. As said above to facetime icon is just for the iPods/iPads.

    We should form a FaceTime TiPb group.

    I remember when I first got my Blackberry Storm. I didn't have any friends that had Blackberries and I wanted to try Blackberry Messenger. Finally, a co-worker got one. We used BBM and it was pretty awesome. I now have the iPhone. I can Facetime anyone that has the iPhone, iPod, or a Mac IF we are both in a wifi area. I have used it and it is nice. You can do the same with Skype and neither has to be in wifi area and it crosses mfg and carrier boundaries.

    I was in the same boat when I first got my BB Storm. There were a bunch of groups in the social section where folks could exchange BB PINs with member other members of the group.

    The difference here is that, with BBM, you could only exchange your PIN without provided any other information, such as phone number, unless you wanted to. With Facetime, you have to have the person's phone number or email address in order to Facetime with them.

    At least with BBM, if you happen across someone you later decide, um, should be deleted :-) it was easy to do so, and the other party wouldn't be able to contact you again. Facetime is a little different - something to consider....

    That thought had crossed my mind.. but that's why conversation boundaries can be set, if you know what I mean.

    Easy way to fix that is only turning on the Facetime feature when you know your going to use it.

    Just download this app on your Iphone 4 or Ipad and you can invite others with iphone or others with the front facing camera to join you on a live video chat. This app uses your data system (3 G) as oppose to face time WIFI.
    My wife and I use it daily when WIFI not available.

    If you ever decide to jailbreak your phone open cydia and buy my3g it allows you to use FaceTime anywhere without wifi. It's great.

    Another good app is Tango. No JB needed. It'll allow you to video chat over 3G with anyone who has the same app, including Droid users. Works pretty well.

    I like Tango very much, it automatically creates a list of Tango uusers from your contacts. I just used it with my brother and we are in different countries at the moment. I've even used Tango on a 3G connection

    Yes, I forgot all about FaceTime because of Tango. The 3G or Wifi option is the reason I prefer Tango.

    Is the "facetime" over Tango good? As in not slow? Lol. I was able to FaceTime with a friend (she was using her iPod touch) & it was super laggy.
