    Does anybody know how much date takes FaceTime over 3G? I don't see any posting about it. What is going to happen to my unlimited ( 3GB ) data plan? I am a heavy user of FaceTime and I think the 3G option is great!

    Not sure how much data, but it does work over 3G which is fantastic!

    I'm sure FaceTime will look lovely over a throttled 3G connection :)

    It uses about 3 MB per minute.

    I used Facetime over 3G, and it works quite well actually.

    On the other hand, now that I am on OS 6.0 beta I no longer have the "sorry I am on 3G" excuse to get out of a FaceTime call. Dang! lol

    It may not remain a free feature. AT&T seems interested in charging.

    http://www.pcworld.com/article/259384/atandt_may_charge_for_facetime_over_cellular_networks.html

    Hmm, additional $20/month perhaps? And will that mean unlimited FaceTime if you cough up the $20 just for that? Or maybe this is just a nasty rumor and AT&T will allow us to use or data allowance any way we want, including FaceTime?

    Hmm...
