    I'll be on vacation in San Francisco and would love to FaceTime chat with my girlfriend with the Golden Gate bridge in the background (this sounds like an Apple commercial, no?)

    anyways, I'm thinking on adding the hotspot feature with Verizon. Will I be able to share this connection through airport via Bluetooth, and then connect back through Wifi?

    actually now that I think about, I haven't seen anyone say that the Verizon hotspot feature includes traditional tethering (with USB/Bluetooth)

    If youre talking about the verizon mifi, yes you can use it to FaceTime but why don't you just jailbreak and then you can FaceTime on 3G. It's a no brainer easy less than 5 minute fix. Google greenpoison to jailbreak.

    Or you can also download the app Tango which allows video calling over 3G.
