    I know there is probably not an answer for this yet, but i am curios because i know a couple of people getting an ipod touch 4 on Wednesday however i don't want to upgrade my iphone 4 and lose my jailbreak. It seems as if someone facetimes you from the ipod touch 4 you can receive the call but you wont be able to call them unless you have 4.1..any ideas????

    You probably need to since the iPhone 4 software needs to accommodate adding the Apple ID and the email address that the iPod touch uses.

    Really impossible to tell. I don't know how the iPhone 4 would "call" an iPod touch, but it is possible that it'll work if you initiate the call from the iPod

    Well it's already been said that you will be able to "call" an iPod touch by using an email address but not how the iPod touch will initiate calls...

    I would like to know this too as a friend of mine wants to be able to do facetime calls with my iPod Touch 4 (which I haven't bought yet) via his iPhone 4.

    Those few people with an iTouch 4, could you test this please?

    I just did a call with my friend on an iPhone 4. Pretty sure he's updated to iOS 4.1 though.

    I just watched a video where both devices needed 4.1 so yes.

    Yes, I couldn't FaceTime with a friend until she had upgraded.
