For a good FaceTime call 1-888-FACETIME

iPhone 4 features: FaceTime video chat hands-on

Apple has set up a service for new iPhone 4 owners who want to taste the glorious future that is FaceTime, but whose Luddite friends won't cooperate by getting iPhones of their own. Just call 1-888-FACETIME and cheerful Apple service representative will answer, initiate FaceTime with you, and walk you through the feature.

If you give it a try, let us know how it works for you. Just don't keep calling -- it's not iChatRoulette, okay?

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

I tried it... Quality wasn't as good as I thought it'd be... Maybe connection....she was cute though :-)

A says:

Wow just called. That was amazing. I need to get some friends with a iPhone 4!!

behrlover says:

I've been calling all my friends with iPhone 4's today and just love it.

sfditty says:

I can't understand why they called the police on me. I was just doing the things I normally do at home.

Jojo says:

FML!!! I gata wait for either AT&T or apple to have them on stock =\

Max says:

That was so awsome. First time I used it and the guy I had was very friendly. Everyone has to try this

tweger01 says:

That was kind of neat, no hot girl though (damn you Guiness0514 for getting my hopes up).
Sucks I have to wait for my friends to get the iPhone 4 to use this, hurry up Skype!!

nick says:

you have to wait for friends to get the iphone 4 and you have to hope your friends are at a wifi spot when you try to call them. to me this is more for if you have family or wife/gf and you know for a fact they are home and have wifi connection.

isaac65 says:

I tried it as well. It's pretty cool that they offer this service. Now I with some of my friends would hurry up and get their phones so I can use it with them.

Mr s says:

Love the phone only network problem will recommend go to o2 as vodafone is to expensive and they dint give sure signal for free battery lifes not all that

Wes says:

I hate working nightshift. They only do it during regular business hours. =(

schmooie says:

I FaceTimed my wife across our local Barnes & Noble, and the quality was fairly reasonable. If it's a bit blocky, try connecting both peers' iPhone 4 to a 802.11n network on both ends.

Ryan says:

I was the same, having no body to talk to on FaceTime so I started which is a site for people to find other people to FaceTime with! It's Free!

James says:

This 1-888-322-38463 was cool, Apple is always a step ahead, now with FaceTime customer service WOW!!. Thanks Apple for your innovation. However I would encourage you give everyone a free bumper because of the antenna issue on the left side of the device.
