Does it cost anything to Facetime internationally?

iPhone 4

    Facetime only works with WiFi, so the general answer is no, unless you pay for WiFi. However, activating Facetime sends text message to Apple servers in the UK. If you are on a carrier that supports the iPhone this text is free, but if your carrier does not you will pay an international SMS charge for it.

    No charge for face time u only need to have wifi connection and the people u doing face time with need to have a apple device . Starting this fall with the release of apples new update ios6 u can use face time without wifi as long as your cell phone has a internet service u good to go .

    Is there any charge for the recipient of Face Time - i.e. equal cost for caller and user?

    There is no charge for use of Facetime. However, if either end is using cellular data the data will come out of your data allowance. If you are using WiFi on both ends it will be free.

    FaceTime is free but requires Wi-Fi or Cellular/3G/4G/LTE (This may cost money from your carrier) for use.


    Hope this helps!

    It doesn't always require WiFi. Some cellular carriers allow facetime over cellular data.
