    My cousin's Sensation on T-Mobile has the option, but on my unbranded S2 (on 3G or WiFi) will not give me the option to video chat. Is it not yet supported on this phone?

    I am wondering about this as well? I really do not want to root yet I rooted my Desire and even though it was fun to play with different roms I did wind out wrecking my phone. Is there away to do video chat with friends on other phones ? I tried Skype but it does not work.

    I know for certain Qik works. I used it to communicate with my cousin on T-Mobile and he has a Sensation. Have not tried Skype as yet, but I heard it works. But with Google Video, I just noticed that there is no option for starting a video chat so that's why I asking.

    ive tested almost all available Video call apps out there. here are the results:

    Top on my list = Tango (better image quality but u do have to reach out and straight ur aim for other to see not just ur head but also most of ur upper body)

    2nd= Skype(sound quality is better than Tango but image,,not that good.also for some phones you cannot switch between your front and rare cams which real SUCK. )

    Qik cam = shit!

    Fring= shit 2.

    end of story.

    thats the most common 4 video apps on the market i reckon.

    correct me if you dare.

    or is there any other videocall apps you think its good. let me know i would like to TRY
