    Unlike alot of people I am on a very small monthly wifi download limit before it is slowed and am interested to know how much download and upload I'd use with Facetime on say a 20 min call and I presume the other party will also be using their internet download. Or will I need to go use the McDonalds free wifi??:D

    I am not sure... However, if your going to be on a 20 min call, then why don't you just text?

    Not sure what you mean Why would I text if I want to see the person on the other end?. Also I only used the 20 min amount as an example-I'd talk for an hour if it was cheap enough

    I was taking your concern about your Internet usage, and saying that if you wish to be in contact with them, I recommend that you texted them... If you really wanted to see them, then that is a different story... Now that you figured out its 10 MB (roughly per minute), how long & how much are you going to use FaceTime?
