I tried earlier on, I didn't really find the option to videocall. Either I haven't found the menu setting to video call or Skype video calling is not supported at the moment. I'm not a big Skype user anymore, I mainly use Google Talk.

The Google+ app caters for video calls. Much better than Skype IMO

Thanks for the answers ;) But I need to contact a person who's using PC, very often, so this phone is a "no go" for me :( Too bad I really like it...

Yes g+ is superior on the PC, for all but paid calls.

I'm sure someone will get a Skype workaround sorted sooner or later for the B2 / TMV. Initially on the Blade it was only possible to channel audio through the speaker (rather than the earpiece) for a few months til some bright spark sorted the audio routing out

I remember there was a hacked version of skype released in summer. It did enable video call almost on any device with a front camera. Ohh.. well, still a good device for that price ;) Thank you for all the answers! Cheers

Am I correct in assuming that the front face camera does not work ? .... it seems that no one has answered the question?

If I am incorrect please let us know....

What about skype / google talk with out front facing camera?

Thanks

P.S looks like a nice phone

The latest versions of Google Talk with video calling don't work on the type of processors that phones like the SanFran2/Vivacity have.

A bit of a shame, but still a good price for this phone, many thanks for letting us know
