    In the top right corner on the front of my Milestone, just to the left and above the lovely multi-coloured LED, there is what I swear looks like a forward facing camera. It has the lens, and everything.

    However; I've been unable to find anything related to video calling at all. Whether it be in Google Talk, the phone itself, or anything else. Is this actually a feature, or is there simply a lens on the front of the phone to confuse people?

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but I'm feeling lonely and need the gratification of having a semi-useless question answered. Cheers :)

    Thanks for the quick response... I'm guessing the lens looking device on the front isn't, in fact, a lens at all then?

    I'm guessing you're looking at the proximity sensor. It's used to detect whether or not the phone is against your face to auto-off the display. I believe the ambient light sensor is in that array as well but I'm not positive.

    What app is everyone using to get their video chat on? Right now I'm using Tango, while it could use a lot more work, it does work. I wish they would jus bring over facetime lol even if it was for cross platform use only.

    The only thing about Tango that I don't like is the audio quality sometimes I can see the person moving their lips but can't hear what their saying or it comes really late...its like watching an Asian film dubbed over lol

    Thing about yahoo messenger is I think both parties have to be logged in to use it, you can't just call like with Tango.
