    Welcome to AF, letsroll! I have had this problem in the past, its a problem with Google Talk on your phone not recognizing that you and the person you want to talk to are capable of video chatting. Try having the other person initiate the call, it will still ring on your phone, and the video connection will start.

    i tried this and it did not help or work. i just downloaded tango and that works fine, so i know my camera is fine. so it tells me, google talk is all whacked, or some update screwed it up? it is still a mystery.... oh and skype works just fine as well. i am waiting to hear back from the google forums as well but no one responded, yet. thanks...

    Don't expect much from the Google forums, I stopped going there, because of lack of responses. You just get more people with the same problem complaining. Stick with non official forums if you actually want help. Try searching other phone forums too.

    I have never used Google talk on an android device (use it on the computer a bunch, although less now that it merged with Google+), I normally remove it from all Roms before I even flash them...

    thanks for the reply. as of now i am not going to use it much, has to do with last software update or the merging to google plus i bet.
