    Hello. I was talking to my friend who has the note 4 for t-mobile and he has video calling for his note 4 because of the 5.1.1 update. I have the note 4 for at&t and it says that I have 5.1.1 software but I do not have video calling. Is there anything else that I should do for my phone to get it? Or does at&t suck?

    T-Mobile is pushing a new messaging feature out that included video calling. So what your friend is referring to is actually T-Mobile specific software wise on the note 4.

    IAmSixNine is correct. Verizon has HD voice and video calling services but you have to pay extra for it. A quick Google search indicates that AT&T started offering it as well late last year and that it is a paid add-on to your existing service.

    Are these services interoperable between carriers and/or platforms? Because if they are not, you'd be better off just asking anyone you intend to video call with regularly to set up an account in Hangouts, Skype, or other cross-carrier/cross-platform communications medium that can do video. And most of them are free.

    TMo is not cross carrier yet.
    I would recommend hangouts as well. I use it for family and Skype as a back up.

    I didn't have to pay extra for HD calling and neither has any of my friends or family and we are all with Verizon.

    Same here. HD Voice and Video calling is included. But, video calling does go against your data, unless you're on wifi. HD Voice is over their LTE network.

    Oh really! Well I'll be darned. I ASSUMED (never a good thing to do!) that there was a fee due to wording of the option under Advanced Calling. Just upgraded and you are correct. It is included at no charge.
    Thank you so much!

    Your quite welcome, as archangel849 said, you will use more data with HD calling if the person you are calling has the feature enabled, not having an issue with using too much data myself.
