    Default Best Video Calling app?

    All,

    Finally started to test QIK, Tango on both wifi and 4g....and both has been a horrible experience. I am testing with another MyTouch 4G user also.

    I get stutter, jaggy, voice drops in and out. Is it the apps I'm using or is there something better out there?

    I use Yahoo messenger and it worked flawlessly for me so far.

    I don't even use my front facing camera. This whole video chat thingy doesn't seem to work too great on these devices.

    I've tried all of the above - (censored) I believe they push this thing out before it was actually ready for public use. (rant end.)

    Like I said, it worked just fine for me. I chat with my family back in Europe and I only get some delay in voice when I have low service coverage. But not voice fading or stutters.

    Never did test video chat, then again how many of you folks have perfect FFC? As my FFC is slightly tilted on the right side.

    I use fring its pretty good but nothing out there is perfect just test that on 4g and for minutes without drop call or voice messing up on me but the ffc is weird its to the right so you have to tilt it but still cool to play around with do take it serious cuz everything isn't perfected

    We can but we wont due to we selling our soul to the big Corp who in sense control the politicians and get them to pass more anti consumer friendly laws. The main problem we have is the network backbone which is what limiting us mostly from deploying bandwidth based applications. But hey soon as something happens before it becomes any problem they take control it hence the bandwidth cap?

    Yea I hear ya and the caps are a bi*change at times but I moved thru so many companys I think and hope sprint will stick to what there good at and be more free about things but I drooped att cap never will pay Verizon lol and T-Mobile is good to but the plan for sprint for me was a little better.

    and i got a deal with my boys that work at radio shack the manager is a good friend of mine and he knew I wanted an Evo but I buy and sell so many phones he said stick with sprint and you could get the white Evo for just $161 so I have my optimus s chilling as a back up and sold the rest and used some to use there trade in deal for store credit lol so I practically pay $49 for a Evo after store credit lol.

    Keep this on the topic of the OP please. If you want to continue the conversation take it to general chat.

    Thanks.

    You guys know that qik was acquired by skype, right? I wonder if the sudden video call issues has something to do with it. It's not enough that Skype sold it's soul to Big Red, not they step on T-Mobile's turf.
