    Default FaceTime for iPad 1 via iPhone 2G
    OK, I know that sounds outrageous, but maybe someone could come up with a Cydia app for iPad 1 that would connect (wirelessly or via the Camera Connection Kit) to another iPhone and use it for FaceTime...? Yes, it would decrease the value of the iPad 2, but I, for one, would pay a good amount of $ for it! Has anyone come up with this already, or would anyone consider it??

    Thanks for the speedy response!

    Sorry, I guess I didn't convey that clearly enough. I have a spare iPhone 2g. Which only has a back camera that wouldn't do FaceTime. But my thought is, with a special app, I would be able to face the iPhone 2G's camera towards myself and still be able to see my friend's face on the iPad screen.. any thoughts?

    I would prob sell both of the older devices and then upgrade.

    I'd imagine even if possible (doesn't seem to be an easy task if possible) the 2G would probably be way too slow to handle live video.
