    I think I've got this right, but want to check my facts first. If both parties in a FaceTime conversation are connected via their own wireless networks the FaceTime call is free?

    If I contact someone whilst using my wifi network whilst they are using their mobile providers network, then they incur the charge?

    If I speak personal wifi to personal wifi in New Zealand still no charge?

    Thought I'd better check!

    Thanks

    You are correct. There is no charge.

    Forgive my ignorance....can an iPad have a Face time type call if the other person only has a Netbook?

    Not unless its a Mac Air or other Mac, facetime is currently only available on Apple products.

    Skype should work fine, as it's cross platform. You would of course need a webcam if you want video too though

    Yup. We use skype videoing (free of course) to our relatives in NZ too. We find skype so much more accessible than FaceTime.
