Awesome but I have a question. Did you manually enter that link into bit.ly or did it automatically change when you posted the link here?

Pretty cool. I guess FaceTime over 3G would be one of the major draws for me in terms of jailbreaking, but then again, I don't even personally know anybody else with an iPhone 4 :p

What's up with the ceiling fan and light reflection in the video? Is this your first time video recording something?

That was so cool! You see that Apple? That is the type of crap that will sell phones. Take note.

I didn't want to look obvious. They'll kick people out for trying to record video on a ride. But I've done it a bunch of times.

These are cool videos but I assume you were holding the phone in your hand while recording correct?

So, if you had dropped your phone from the coaster it could have potentially hit someone on the ground or in the seat behind you at 50mph or faster. That would hurt. There's a reason why the operators say that you cannot use these devices while riding.

Nice! You FaceTimed while one Screamin! Well done :) Disney doesn't care about recording on that ride. They make you take everything on with you anyways, so they can't stop you..

I dunno if it's different there than at WDW, but I got yelled at for trying to record (with a video camera) on Rock 'n' Roller Coaster due to the fast launch. Apparently a lot of people had suffered a lot of black eyes from their own cameras slamming into their faces upon launch when they tried to film the whole ride.

I imagine would love everyone to be able to make calls over 3G but there are some countries around the world that have really crappy data (*cough*AT&T*cough*ruiningitforeveryone*cough) coverage so it's currently wifi only until the carriers beef up their networks.

I was hoping that this video would have gone "viral" or something. Nobody has done anything as crazy as this with FaceTime via 3G.

I still don't see why people complain about AT&T... I'm at freaking Universal Studios in Hollywood as I type this. People everywhere using iPhones. Data and voice are all fine. AT&T is awesome IMO.
