    The Desire doesn't have a front facing camera. Honestly, no-one really used the video calling feature anyway. I had a K800i, it has a front camera. In the 3 years I had it, not a single instance was there any reason to video call. Not that anyone else had a phone with a front camera anyway. It ended up just clogging up with dust.

    Yeah, video calling seemed a feature mobile manufacturers and networks tried to peddle a few years back, no one was interested though. We all had phones with front facing cameras but everyone I know, including myself only ever tried it once to see if it worked and that was it.

    I just don't think video calling works as a concept in a mobile environment. It's fine on Skype when you're sat down for a conversation with someone but with a mobile a lot of the time you're walking along etc and a video just doesn't work in that situation.
