    My wife and I just set up our new iPhone 4's. I'm currently at my fire dept working my 24hr shift and she's at home.

    Tried facetime and it works BEAUTIFULLY! She is literally due (40wks prego) tomorrow and I deploy when my new daughter is about 3 months old. I SHOULD have wifi over there. This is going to make my deployment SOOO much better.

    Sorry for the no purpose post. :rolleyes:

    Any military members out there debating...GET THE IPHONE 4!

    Congrats (new kiddo and the iPhone)!

    Oh what a perfect time!! This is the type of situation I can see FaceTime really shining!

    Take care of yourself over there!

    That is fantastic!!! Congrats on the new little 'airman' you have coming. I thought Skype was wonderful when I was in the middle east, but having it on something as small as an iPhone will be even better.

    This should definitely be awesome for you assuming the USAF provides you with WiFi. I'd be shocked if you guys didn't have that, but I'm a military novice.

    Thanks for the service and hope all you guys come back soon! I know you're not a Marine, but I think my ex-roommate would scream YUT!

    LOL! Good luck getting Facetime to work from the other side of the world with AT&T's network relays.

    So he is in the military then? I thought he said he was at his fire department, so I assumed he was a Fireman.

    I assume he is a fireman now, perhaps between military duties? :confused:

    His location indicates he's in the Air Force.

    JReynolds, I'm so glad the two of you were able to get the iPhones, this is good timing! Congrats on the baby coming and stay safe!

    Um, wifi? Wifi has nothing to do with AT&T.
