    I'm stuck on sprint, I am trying to upgrade to a phone I can make video calls to my wife. She has a I phone 4. I looked at the gallaxey epic II. The people at the sprint store could not answer this question. Can it make video calls???? Any help would be apprecitated.

    Pretty sure you can make video calls to each other...but you have to have the same app, like Tango or whatever.

    Have your wife download the App "Vtok". Vtok - Google talk (Gtalk) video calls, text chat + Google Voice phone and SMS for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad 2 Wi-Fi, and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G on the iTunes App Store

    Works great with Google Talk on your end. I've video chatted with my wife on her iPad 2 several times now.

    I'm just trying to make sure that the gallaxey epic two supports video chat? It seems some specific phones do and some don't.

    It does, just make sure the sprint network in your area is good or the connection may not be smooth.

    Or you could wait for the att version in the first week of oct...

    Video chat can be a hit or miss. The only devices that I have had a positive video chat experience on are my iPhone and iPad. It wasn't so good with my Nexus S using QIK. I haven't used any other video chat app, but QIK was pretty bad.

    Used Gtalk on wifi to a laptop on wifi and worked great for an hour video call.

    I have only tried Skype.
    I'm in a 3G-only area.

    It worked well to my wife's PC, even in high quality. (The PC is on a FIOS 25/25 line.)

    I tried to my daughter's mac in Cox wireless, and could only get a voice connection.
    Good sound, but frustrating.

    She called back last night, and video worked perfectly!!!
    Turned out that she had not updated Skype on her Mac in a long time.
    (She was running version 2 when the current version is 5.)
    We're going to try it a bit more over the weekend.

    when i look at skype and qik reviews in the market they are not good at all. Revieweres almost make them sound useless.

    Qik and Skype should be about the same. I have known some people who have liked those apps, but I didn't. Also, the quality is better or worse depending on what kind of connection you are using. I use FaceTime over wifi because it is restricted to it, but the video quality is always good. I have heard others say that Tango works well. Try that and see if it works for you too.
