Morning!

DH and I are planning on tossing our ancient flip phones and buying an iphone 6S Plus (128 GB) model each.

I'm legally blind, so the larger screen is a plus for me.

What DH and I want, but can find no data on, is the real time visual (while we're talking) feature, and I'm wondering if this phone has it. Everywhere I've looked tells me everything else but this. Does anyone know if the 6S Plus has this feature?

We've already priced them and are happy enough with 10 GB (each) and unlimited everything, but the video feature is important to us.

TIA everyone.

Yes; it's called FaceTime, and works between two iPhones, or from any iPhone to a Macintosh computer, or an iPad or iPod...and vice versa, including across all of those devises.

If you have any trouble with FaceTime, there are some alternatives, but Skype should be one of the best:

Don't forget that FaceTime does require either a cellular data or Wifi connection to work.

Thank you so much, guys!

I must have spent about twelve hours yesterday learning how to operate (via YouTube) the 6S, and I did, after several hours, find a segment about FaceTime. This is more fun than humans should be allowed to have! LOL! I particularly liked Siri (the talking 'Dr. Know'), and a few other features (like Words With Friends) that'll make my life a lot more fun -- and I'm having a good time already!
