Replying to:  No Video Calling = bad 3g by aaron662c   Jan 14, 2006, 8:37 PM

The question is: would you use it? For most people, the answer is no. It's a feature that sounds "neat", but it's actually not very practical. Most people would rather just make a regular voice call.

Who wants to worry about what you look like when you're on the phone? Who wants to hold the phone out in front of them and have to aim it at themselves while talking? It's a pain... why not just make a regular phone call?

That's why video calling has mostly been a flop in Europe and Asia. Cingular has taken note of that fact, and that's why they haven't launched it here.

There is one small segment of the market that uses video calling (where it's available): grandmothers who want to see their distant grandkids. Unfortunately, that's just too small of a market to justify such a technology.
