iPad Facetime: International Use?

I've done a search and from what I've read this is possible...

You can use FT on the iPad from US to Europe, correct?
If I read and understood correctly, you need to adjust the time zone, find wifi, and you are good to go.

Is that pretty much spot on?

Thanks!

I dont know about adjusting time - but I recently used FT over wifi on my iPhone in Europe.

My sister-in-law frequently FT's us/sister from Europe.

FaceTime works just like Skype. You can use it to communicate with anyone anywhere in the world. No need to tweak any settings.

Spot on. I FT a friend in the UK almost every day (I'm in the US). We FT on iPhone, iPad, and laptops.

Adjusting for time zone is always good...he is 5 hours ahead of me, so I make sure not to FT at 7 PM...not good to wake him up to talk trash!!

I FaceTime all the time with deaf friend in Tbilisi Georgia and I live in California. I never thought about adjusting time zone.

Thanks everyone for the help!

Yeah, when I was reading about using FT internationally, the one thing I read over and over was the importance of making sure the time zone was adjusted.
Dunno why that it is but oh well...

Thanks again!
