    My mom was flying home last night, on a plane that had wi-fi. I just got out of a movie with the rest of my family and a restaurant right outside the movie theater had free wi-fi. I stood right outside the restaurant and my mom facetimed me. The sound was a bit bad due to the plane, but still amazing that we could both facetime in those areas.

    Dude...

    Honestly, I expected a "oh guess what dirty things I did on face time last night"

    But, I'm glad it's not.

    For facetime to work, do you need to initialize a phone call first? I don't see how you could have called someone that's on an airplane.

    Nice that she was able to and that no one bothered her, because the voip calls and video chat is supposed to not be allowed on inflight Internet connections. I am not against it, but I have d myself to try skype or FaceTime during a flight. Supposely it bothers the other passengers.

    There is also a web way to do it:
    google:
    facetime://(number here)
    example: facetime://8008885555

    Nope, you just go to the contact and touch the facetime button. No phone call needed!

    When will people realize that FaceTime has nothing to do with cellular conections and/or minutes, charges, roaming etc?

    That's awesome. It'd be even better if we could facetime over 3G as well, but the picture quality would probably be extremely grainy.
