While I’m in Budapest, I’ve been using FaceTime audio–only calls with my wife on our iPhones.
Free WiFi access at our apartments means:
- Amy doesn’t need to setup Skype. We can use the built–in iOS app.
- I don’t worry about minutes.
- Audio quality is great (as long as the internet connection is stable).
Here is the data usage from our calls so far:
- 27 minutes (18 MB)
- 5 minutes (4 MB)
- 56 minutes (30 MB)
- 9 minutes (7 MB)
Mac users can also use the FaceTime app if you aren’t an iPhone user.
How? In iOS, view the contact information, and tap the phone icon next to the FaceTime video camera icon.
