As many have said already I too am not impressed with this feature. Simply because its iPhone 4 to iPhone 4. At least that is the impression I’m getting.

It's not. Jobs specifically mentioned on the keynote that facetime will be an open standard. So while at launch it will only be an iPhone 4 only deal, there will be nothing stopping developers of integrating facetime to their applications.
It may not be the simplest of solutions, but it's not a closed-system.
FYI by applications I don't mean on the phone. I'm referring to PC apps like skype/messenger/etc.

You contract running out or upgrading or buying a new device does NOT obligate your to change rate plans. AT&T's Facebook account has confirmed this. AT&T cannot legally force you out of your unlimited plan. All they can do is change the rules for NEW customers.

That said, they do have clauses in the terms of services where try are able to simply close your account at no penalty/cost to you. This is only for rare cases like if you move out of the coverage area into a roaming area where there's simply no AT&T service. They'll send you a notice that they can't provide you service and that they'll close the account in a couple of days, giving you time to port numbers / move to another carrier.
I'm not saying they will do this with iPhone users, just wanted to clarify that while they legally CAN'T change your plan, they COULD drop you like a sack of rocks :P

I wonder how much data will this suck up if you do it over 3G ? Must have unlimited data /jailbroken if your going to use this a lot.

what about confrence call/ 3 or more callers? not likely out of the box.. I thought I saw some early leaked photo of video conferencing on iphone4?
what about IM intergration etc.. for windows live and hotmail IM, etc.? maybe app store apps will support it.
We will need one J/b facetime app that does it all.. I have faith. I think it will be done.Something Hidden in iPhone 4---Steve Jobs twitter
