    Since the Backflip has a camera that flips out to become a 5 megapixel FFC, I was wondering if anyone has successfully used an app like Fring or any other app on the Android Market (preferably free). Also, has anyone done this on 3G without using up too much of the 2 GB DataPro cap?

    Yep but only to other Android devices.
    1. Download and install Fring from market
    2. Start Fring and signup
    3. Then go into Fring's settings and enable video calls
    4. It will say something like it is not supported,
    -----a. Ignore that

    When you make the video call, you have to have the keyboard out (if you shut the keyboard it will end the call).

    AT&T is BS, why when other carriers offer unlimited are we stuck with a 2gig cap. I wanted to switch carriers, but AT&T has best coverage where I live.

    Has anyone tried Tango? I have the 2.1 update and just tried it, love it. Over 3G the picture is like a normal webcam:(, figures, but when connected over wifi, it was almost like skype :D plus it works with my captivate and my friend's iPhone. Almost as good as the iPhone's face time.

    Just wanted to throw that out there
