    isnt facetime over wifi only? so you wouldnt use any data.... I don't know anyone to facetime with, so I haven't tried it yet.

    You guys have ipod touches, why does it matter how much data it uses? You don't pay a monthly sub. And if you're on a data-limited wifi, ouch!

    If you get My 3G you can use FaceTime over 3G, but I don't know how much data it uses as I don't have an iPhone. But if anyone does get 'Download meter for wifi and 3G' and see how much you use.

    I don't think it's much. It's just like watching tv online. Like streaming. Plus the upload for your video.

    It's about 5MB a minute.
