Will Face Time automatically turn on if both callers are at wi-fi?

    In other words, if my girlfriend or boyfriend calls me while connected to wi-fi, and I am too, will the phone call automatically go to Face Time?

    I think this would be an invasion of privacy because there are some things and activities I do in my personal life, that I don't want my friends or family members or significant other to know about.

    What say you?

    I don't think so... facetime is an app so when in a regular call, it won't automatically launch... you have to go to the facetime app then initiate the call. At least, that it how I understand it to work.

    I'm more concerned by the fact that you don't know if you have a boyfriend or a girlfriend. There are some pretty simple tests you can do to figure it out, I'd suggest checking on that the next time you get a chance.

    Maybe they have both, hence the reason for wanting privacy.

    You know, I don't even know why I'm entertaining this reply, but here goes:

    There is this thing called bisexual people, you know. :rolleyes: Yes, they exist. NOT saying I'm one, but I just don't know why this concept is so foreign to you.

    Hmm, yeah. That'd be extra awkward should video chat let that cat out of the bag. I'm surprised that Steve didn't go over this scenario while demonstrating it.

    sexuality aside lol from watchin mr jobs and a couple of hands on videos you initiate a normal call and then get the 6 boxes up on screen as normal except one is for facetime so I am curious how it all works cause if you have to initiate a normal call does it treat it as a call and have the video going by wifi?

    If the screen shots are accurate, it looks like the hold button while in an active call has been replaced by a FaceTime button. So to me, I hope anyway, you can start and stop it during a regular call.

    I think we’re talking about 3 people here: a boyfriend, a girlfriend, and a significant other (sex undetermined). I’m surprised the username is XciteMe with all that going on.

    At any rate, I would imagine it’ll be like MMS. You’re in a call and they’ll be an icon to turn on Face Time, just like in MMS there’s an icon to use a pic.

    Hi sorry if this is a silly question, will 3GS users see the iPhone 4 user on facetime during a wi-fi call?

    Didn't Steve Jobs suggest that FaceTime won't work unless you turn your WiFi off? I think he said something like it works really well, especially when people turn their WiFi off! :D

    He's from England. There's no masturbation here :cool:. No, that's not what FaceTime was factored in for either.
