    Hello,
    I was wondering if there was a way to use my video chatting capabilities by calling someone who is using their computer. (for example, skype).

    thanks. :)

    i have not tried it because i don't think it will work too well with 3G right now. the epic does have that capability. do some research as there are reviews of this option floating around. as for skype, i don't think so because skype and verizon has a locked on it. sprint wants you to use qik, but you can also try fring.

    I think it's ridiculous we can't video chat with gmail users on their computers. C'mon Google

    I tried Tango and it does not have a program for a PC. Anyone else have any suggestions? I cannot believe that there in no program that allows you to chat with a PC.

    You're looking for advice/support rather than offering a Tip or Trick, so I moved your question to the Support and Troubleshooting area for you. ;)

    Has anyone got Yahoo Messenger with video to work on the Epic. I have an EVO and I can get it work if I'm on a WiFi connection. Just got my son the Epic last night and we couldn't get it to work at all. When he loaded the Messenger add-on he was able to do voice. I guess that's OK if he's going to computer but otherwise we'd just call each other. We were able to successfully use Fring for phone to phone video. Now we want his to do phone to PC like my EVO does.
