    Turn off 3g unrestrictor and/or facebreak etc when using facetime on WIFI. Or tell your brother to.

    Oh thats weird then. Can your brother FaceTime to other people for over a min? If he can I would try restoring your phone as a new phone and try it again. Also DSL sucks.

    That upload and download speed is very slow.... If you have a very slow internet then it will have problems.

    Might want to try and see if you can get a faster internet. Although I am not sure what the minimum upload/download speed requirement is for FaceTime.

    Ahhhh wow I see. Thank you for your reply. It's the internet probably. But it works good on the computer, I hope FiOS isn't much more expensive lol

    Yeah 2Mbps is pretty slow, and facetime does a lot of upload, so 0.71Mbps up is quite poor also.

    Post your speedtest results from your iPhone. They could be different depending on the specs of your computer. Also run a few tests and try to get an average.

    It appears to be fine on the computer because you are mainly just downloading there isn't much uploading when you are browsing.

    There could be other factors as well such as another computer using the Internet, with a slow connection like that and the amount of bandwidth FaceTime uses, I would recommend that any computer on your line be turned off or be disconnected from the Internet.

    If you still have an Unlimited data plan with AT&T you can always jailbreak your phone and purchase the app which allows you to use FaceTime over AT&T's network.. You might get better results than if you use your home internet.

    700 something for upload is not that bad... you can skype video almost perfectly w/ another person w/ just 375 just not HD. I think the problem comes with the iPhone using the same connection IP as another computer that may have been asleep then awaken or in use in your wifi network... You could try an static IP connection on the iPhone to see if it improves and also close any other electronic that might be using your internet access since they will make your upload problems worse... Are you facetiming w/ the persons on the same wifi network? what happens when you use another wifi? if it was an upload problem then the quality should be bad, not just disconnect the whole facetime conversation after the min, or is it that after 1min the quality is crap?

    And yeah your internet is slow...
