    Thanks for the reply.

    WiFi video calls? Does it mean it won't do 3G video calls? Cuz I downloaded the user manual and don't see any mention of video calls in it. So beginning to seriously doubt it would support video calls with the HTC built-in apps, at least.

    Correct, video calling on 3G for that device isn't mentioned. Try a video call using WiFi. I'm not sure why that feature isn't mentioned in the user manual, but all the specs and reviews I've come across online confirm video calling over WiFi.

    Download Tango and try making a call using WiFi. Tango is the only video calling app I have experience with, but it worked well. Tango allows video calling using WiFi. Both parties must have the app. I used it with iPhone friends and quality was good.

    Thanks. We're trying to work out how to do video calls using wifi tonight and was trying out GTalk and it only seems to do IM. Was wondering if we need to use Skype or its like. So your post confirmed that the phone doesn't have stock apps that do video calls, be it on 3G or wifi. Thanks so much! ;)

    I'm still waiting for Skype with video to come to the Thunderbolt. Hopefully soon.

    Same with Google Talk video chat; I think that's CMOng soon, with Gingerbread if I'm not mistaken.

    Let me know how it goes with your vid calls!
