Is your iPhone jailbroken and did you download any apps from Cydia that allow you to videocall over 3G? That's the only way I can think of, that will allow you phone to videochat over the AT&T/Verizon network.

you need to jailbreak your phone to do that. thats the only way to make video calls via 3G. You can try to install skype and make video calls via the 3g network tho! (without jailbreaking your phone)

Mine does it too! But thats because I jailbroke and installed My3G. Facetime calls suck over 3G though, at least in my neck of the woods, very choppy.
