    I was able to make a face time call over 3G. I have a 3G laptop connect card for my laptop. I shared it's connection making my laptop into a mobile hot spot. The iPhone 4 picked up the signal from the laptop, making it think that it was on a wifi signal. Face time call made. Now I hope that when the jailbreak comes out for the iphone 4, that someone smart could make something to make the phone think it's on a wifi signal. Anyone with a laptop connect card try it out. Worked pretty good for me.

    enjoy

    3G unrestrictor is already said to work for it. I
    made a FaceTime call on 3G and cut off 2 secs
    later saying I need to be on WiFi.

    It's going to grow gradually over time for many things. Nobody knows for sure.
    But it's all coming....

    Not very soon to be honest. First of all, if skype does that, they're charging you. They're not going to charge for skype-to-skype calls over 3G and then give you FREE video calls. No way. Second, if AT&T won't let Apple do it, they certainly are not budging for skype.

    So you think that Skype in the near future won't let us make video calls?

    That's fine with me but I think Jello was saying that AT&T wouldn't let Apple so why would it let skype.....so maybe over wifi then?!?

    Even over wifi I think that i4 to webcam video calls would be big hit. I've heard from a couple of places that Apple has made this open source, so hopefully there will be something soon.

    It must be hacked as Skype only allows Verizon's
    Android and BlackBerry devices (along with the
    iPhone & Symbian).

    I hadn't done much research, so I could be
    wrong, but no one on their site do they say
    they support the EVO and Sprint at the
    moment.

    Oh dang... didn't know that. Hopefully we get it
    soon. Almost seems like the Verizon deal is
    slowing Skype down in releasing a good iPhone
    update.

    You have to be kidding about Skype right? They took 3 months to get the 3G version out, and now it will probably be another 3 months for the demo multitasking version they had working in April to come out.

    What he said. I think 3G will be plenty fast enough once we get a jailbreak.

    Gotcha... through Fring. I'm sure it'll be
    updated for 2 way video calling. A quick
    look in the App Store and I see it has it,
    but one way only.
