    Hey guys,

    I love to know if I can use the front face camera to video chat with Iphones. Is that doable? This would be my first phone with front face camera and I was hoping to chat with Iphone owners.

    Thanks!

    You should also be able to use Tango and Skype.

    I don't know if Google talk works on the iPhone, but if it does you can always use the video chat feature in that.

    So when you call her with Tango from your phone, does she use Face Time on her iPhone? Or does she have to install Tango on her iPhone?

    Facetime is a feature built in to iOS. So naturally it wont work with Android. The only way to video chat between the two is using a third party video chat app. Several great ones have been named here and to add the one i use is Fring. Fring supports Video chat between Fring users on iPhone, BB, Android and Nokia. It also can replace Yahoo, Msn, ICQ, Google talk and AIM. So it's basically several apps in one.

    Another feature i really like is that it is an SIP client as well (VOIP calls). Highly recommend it. :)

    +1 for Tango. I use it with a couple of iDon't users and it works great. Also it works over 3G and doesn't need wifi to work.
