So I tried the 1-888-FACETIME number and it says call cannot go through yadda yadda. Seems the number doesn't exist anymore.

I'd like to test FaceTime to see how it looks and to make sure my phone works 100%. I don't have any friends with iP4's yet. Any ideas?

If you live near an apple store, you could go there like I did. I went to one of the display iphones. Initially, I called it, but that didn't seem to work. Finally, I dialed my number in their phone and had it call me. Of course, it worked and seemed to be pretty neat.
The benefit of my method is that Apple stores have wifi, which I don't even bother with at home. Also the store I went to was laid back, so I wasn't even bothered when I was doing my test. Obviously, if someone asks, tell them you're testing out face time. As long as your phone number isn't some crazy international call, they'll probably be okay with it.

I might try that but I can't get to an Apple Store anytime soon. Any other suggestions?
