I'm pretty sure Apple wanted this in the beginning when FaceTime was introduce however it was the carriers who wouldn't allow it. Either way their is always so much Apple Hate on this site it's kinda annoying...

Wouldn't really say apple is stealing ideas. It was probably more a case of apple didn't want it over 3G intially due to video quality reasons (it's 2 years old and the networks have come along way in those 2 years) and also partly in agreement with cellular companies to keep insane amounts of traffic of their networks (whilst they still had alot of users with unlimited data agreements).
Facetime is without doubt the best mobile video call platform, beats Skype hands down. The video quality is twice as good on facetime. I use facetime roughly 4/5 times a week to either speak to family in the US or for my son to phone my parents to say hello. For me its one of the best features apple has implemented. I even use it on my MBA and works really well. Only wish is for apple to open it up to allow windows users and droid users. Until they do i need to keep skype on my phone.

It's news like this that I am glad I switched to Sprint. I use 26GB of data a month. Love it!

3g unrestrictor costs less than a big mac. if you can afford an iphone, you can afford such a cheap app if you have a need for it.
what i'd like to see is apple make good on their promise to open the facetime protocol so others can implement it. jobs promised it years ago and never delivered.

AT&T needs unlimited data back.

1. the government will release more of the spectrum to the civilian public, freeing up space for more cellular data.
2. providers will find a way to split the spectrum space they already have.
3. a new form of spectrum will be discovered and implemented.
4. unlimited data will flow like water.
5. providers will make a lot of money.
6. everybody is happy again.
... too easy

He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
