    In case you didn't know, Facetime has its own URL, which means that it can be launched from the Home Page, a website, or an email.

    The format is facetime://aaabbbcccc

    If you have access to the iPhone Configuration Utility, you can quickly build your own shortcuts (aka Web Clips) and apply them.

    Hope that helps instead of going through Contacts > your contact > FaceTime or going to Phone > Recent > etc.

    FaceTime, the built in system for video calling between iPhone 4s via wifi, has nothing to do with facebook, a social networking site...

    This is an embarrassment to the word "fail"

    The thing is, then it opens Safari, at least for me anyways. It would be cool if it would go right to the FaceTime.

    It's facetime:// area code + phone number

    It seemed from your post that you were trying to insert the contacts name instead of their iPhone number
