Facetime using Ipad to Ipad works great and it is free also.

I have no idea about your condo.

Skype works great from Mexico to the US or elsewhere, as long as you have a good (decent bandwidth) WiFi connection. Don't forget to top up your account if you're calling a regular landline or cell.

I've used Facetime using my iPad from Mexico and it works fine with a good wifi connection. There is also an app called Viber that allows you to make free phone calls through the internet. The drawback is that the person you are calling also has to the Viber app.

K-Man, I am just new to the workd of iPad and Facetime. Did you get charged for a phone call to the US when you did your Facetime call?

We've done Skype from many countries in the world to home.

Often found that the connection wasn't fast enough to allow the video to work properly (this was from European countries), but the audio was just fine.

My hubby liked to hold his computer camera up to the window and show me the scenery from his hotel rooms!
