    FaceTime works only over wifi.

    I am probably misunderstanding your question, because I just open FaceTime, go to Contacts and press on the email address I want to call.

    And FaceTime is free. It comes preinstalled with the iPad 2.

    while your first statement is correct it's not entirely true. If a device is jailbroken there is a tweak in cydia called my3g & facebreak that tricks wifi into believing the 3G connection is on wifi

    True and FaceTime will even work on iPad 1, but without camera.

    However, I was in a presumptuous mood and assumed that OP's question was for the iPad 2, which is and will still be for a while without jb.

    Just remember to enable FaceTime in the settings of your device. It is free but can only be used over a wifi network.

    Skype works well over both wifi and 3G. But remember it does use quota from your data plan.

    Viber is good also for calls.
