    Since even the new motorola x wont have a front facing camera. Is There any verizon phone they will within a month? My dad needs a new verizon phone but he only has a month so im thinking the incredible is the best choice.

    Only has a month?

    Anyway, I think DInc is a great possibility. I'm not sure what exacty he needs Video conferencing for, but I think it does what is needed. You can either watch the other end, or let them watch you. However, if he really needs to do both, he could just do this. Get an oversized case or carrier (maybe one that is designed for an Extended battery) and then slide a small pocket sized mirror in it. There are some that have stands that might be ideal for standing up behind it on a table. I suppose that might be optomistic. Anyway, just a thought.

    I think I might try to be creative and go to a craft store and create my own mirroring contraption. If I ever get around to it, I'll post it up.

    He has a month because he gites back to.south korea in a month just here for now. Video chat isnt huge he just sounded pretty interested.in it so I didnt want to set him up with a phone without it and have it become obsolete within a month

    You will not likely see a front facing camera on Verizon's network until they roll out LTE. That video chat is a data intensive feature, and would likely require 4g to work properly.

    Hopefully the Droid X will be out within a month. As far as the Incredible goes, I think online back orders have been pushed back until July 13 anyway, so that might not even be an option for him either.

    Interesting idea. Attach a mini periscope-type contraption to the camera lens so that it looks back the other way. Who needs a front-facing camera? :D

    Here, try something like this:
