    Does FaceTime use up any cellular minutes or is it purely WiFi based?

    I think it uses minutes... I mean it would only make sense like that.

    Edit: Nevermind :x ^

    FaceTime only uses your internet connection (No minuetes).

    Wifi based for now untill they can work with the carriers as I'm sure its VERY HIGH DATA usage if it were to be on 3G

    of course I'm sure you could use it on the go if you get a mifi device since the mifi acts as a wifi hotspot. . (don't quote me though)

    Yeah. I read you and No it does not. CALLING does, but not facetime.

    Instead of calling someone then using facetime, just call them with facetime. Go to your contacts then hit "Facetime" and there you go.

    Expect that contact NEEDS an iPhone 4 or a fourth generation touch and have enabled face time.
