    Now now, you meant Apple right? say Apple then, no need for you to try be the "cool kid" I think he means actually video calling over the network not using data and I do not think that is possible.

    He wants to know if you can use the GSM network for video calling just like normal calling-without data,and that is impossible

    He specified over 3G or WiFi, not the cellular network.

    Exactly. But I'm still perplexed with Parth's comment... I've never heard of "GSM Video Calling" lol.

    Yeah I doubt thats even possible!
    Could it be he got confused by the fact that the thread title had GSM in it when there was no need for it?

    That's what I'm assuming. I think the OP was just specifying his device not knowing that all N4's are GSM devices.

    Seriously guys?

    UMTS / 3G standard video calling (or the lack of it!) | qrant

    There is a video conferencing standard for UMTS and later. It's just Android, iOS, and probably WP doesn't support it .. well clearly no one remembers it anymore. My old Sony Ericsson phone supported front facing video calling over 3G (built in, no apps) but no carriers in the US supported it.

    Anyway, he did mention using it over WiFi which would mean he would have to use something like Google Talk or Skype but his inclusion of (GSM) in the topic title meant the above.

    Guys, i'm just clerifying again to clear all confusion..
    i mean to ask if we can make video calling though 3g/wifi witohut any 3rd party app to other 3g/wifi enabled phone directly via network in nexus 4?

    for google talk,skype, it need to be installed and logged in in other usrs phone also, i mean to ask if by simply calling user over gsm-3g network, we can do video call in nexus 4 or not?

    Ah.... sort of like facetime but for anyone who has a data connection. No need to have a 3rd party app. That would be so cool. At this point, I'd just settle for a good voice calling service over data without all the problems with the existing apps. Of course carriers won't support something like that because we'd be killing their networks. They already think we're data hogs.

    Hi raj24,

    I tried figuring out your requirement. The thing is you wana make a video call via network carrier i.e GSM/UMTS/CDMA.... to other 3G enabled phones without any third party apps right...??

    Here is your answer : the feature is called "Native Video Calling" this feature is not basically supported on android phones. But Yes Samsung Android Mobiles does support this feature and Unfortunately there's no native 3G video calling support on nexus 4.

    Please be clear next time when you post a question
