How often do you FaceTime on the iPad mini?

Since November I've only done one or 2 FaceTime calls on the mini

But I only use FaceTime like once a week on my iphone

Only once overseas, when on a learning trip in China, i used my ipad (not mini) to facetime with my parents every night, thanks to the hotel's free wifi.

Otherwise, never. If I need to see my friends, I would simply invite them out for a meal or drink. I do know of a friend whose family is in another country, and he uses his ipad to facetime with his wife and kid every night.

I have only used FaceTime once on my phone. My fiancee and I tested it when we first got our iPhone4s. I haven't used it on my iPad but I have been using Skype to make video calls to non-Apple using family members lately.

Only with certain family, to be honest. Maybe once or twice a month. Never once used it with friends. I think it's just a little too invasive to be used frequently. There's something comforting about being able to chat without the other person actually seeing your every move.

I Facetime regularly with my Grandmother She has an iPad 2 en she is 78 years old. I have a mini. Facetime is so much easier to use than the skype app.

Never. I like to multi-task, so when I'm chatting on the phone, I want to be able to move around and do other things such as cook, fold laundry, etc. My cordless phone lets me do that.

I am hearing impaired (deaf) I use FaceTime all the time with other deaf friends. I use it with my iPhone, iPad, and MBP.
