[Noob] Can iPhone 4S do video call to non-iPhone?

hi all, I am a 1st time iPhone user here. Is it possible to use a 4S to do video call to a non-iPhone?

I used to do that using my Nokia E72, video call to my gf's low end Samsung, non-android phone. It doesn't need 3G as well because my gf's 3G is not activated.

I don't seem to find a similar function with 4S.

You will need at least an iPhone 4 or another 4S plus a Wifi connection to be able to use the FaceTime function.

U can facetime with someone who using macs. There is a desktop app facetime for mac users. Nimbuzz also can support video calling.

The other 2 apps are Tango and Qik Video. If your gf hp support these two apps, then it is possible.

Tango:

Qik Video:

i think TS is talking about those video calls using old "dumbphones".... where 3G is not even needed to do video calls.

The facetime is only on wifi. you can call other iOS device and also Mac

this is a step backwards for video call

still needs wifi with telco network to complete a call
