    Hi,

    I have the samsung blaze 4G phone. My friend has an iphone and she has the facetime feature on her iphone which allows her to make video calls. My phone is an android as you know. If she calls me through the facetime feature on her iphone is there a way for me to connect to her video call so that we can both see each other on video? Do I need to download an app(maybe an app made by apple that is made to run on android phones) to enable my phone to have the capability of accepting facetime calls made from her iphone? Or should we just forget about the facetime nonsense and just use something like skype or another similar app that will run on both the iphone and android devices? But she does not want to go to the trouble of singing up to something in order to use an app.

    Thanks.

    To put it simply, no.

    Facetime is an Apple invention, no other phone uses it (copyright issues).

    About the best I can suggest is that you both run Skype - there's a version for the iPhone, there's one for the Android, one for Macs, one for Windows phones, one for Linux, one for Windows laptops and desktops - and I'm sure if something else comes along, they'll have a version out for that too. You can video, you can text, you can do anything any other video program can do - and more. And, as with almost everything I recommend, the price is right - free.
