    How does Face Time work? I understand it uses some sort of email and Wi-Fi... but I have no clue how it works. Can it be any email(Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, Aim, Etc)?

    (I don't have an iPhone 4)

    I think the use of e-mails is just a replacement for a phone number, since the iPod Touch 4g isn't a phone.

    It's been announced that it will use your Apple ID.

    Most likely thats it (what DrMonkey said) Makes me wonder, could facetime be shut off if its on an unlocked iPhone with a different SIM card? hmm...

    Yeah that does make more sense, actually.

    iOS 4 is multi tasking OS. may be just enter the ID on the facetime app and it will run even when you use the ipt or not. Guess so..

    Ohhhhh I see.. and like someone previously stated, that makes perfect sense. I'm going to have to change my email haha. I rarely use my Apple ID (email). And I'll be using my Yahoo email for both informal/formal calls. So I'll change apple ID's.

    Thanks for everyone who contributed and posted on this thread.

    Video calling via mobile phone isn't that wide spread in the US, Facetime is making it main stream. How many phones in the US can you think of that have a front facing camera and video calling? How many units did each sell, and can each one use video call with the others?
