Yes, Many phones support video calling over 3G - it's part of the 3G standard.
I think it's only Apple who refuse to conform to the standards (as usual) and restrict it to WiFi

Which phone are you using? If it's an iPhone then you can use several jailbreak apps to achieve this.

If you have an IPhone and it's Jailbroke check out My3G on Cydia it's a 3G Tricker,and you can use FaceTime etc with it,so the answer is yes.

Yeah with Apple Facetime you are restricted to wifi on an non jailbroken phone. But with the iPhone Skype App its free to chat over 3G to other Skype users, even over video calls.

Not sure anyone saw this comment - but I would say no you can't.

Ah without internet, then No that would be impossible,the only alternative would be to set up an intranet but that would be limited to just the few using it.
