    Default Video Calling in India

    Near enough all mobile phones have a camera, which is usually used to take pictures, but it is also used for video calling. But how many have actually used video calling services? In India I dont think many people use video calling, but people who live abroad use video calling a lot, and I am assuming its because of the cheap video calling rates!

    Although it is a bit costly in India, has anyone had any trial in using video calling, any feed back?

    Video call is not included as part of the 3G deal - limited or unlimited. Video call is charged at 2 paise per second. Then there is pulse rate. If the minimum pulse is 30 seconds then that is the slab in which you will be charged. A 3 minute video call will cost Rs. 3.60 + tax.

    So you can say it costs around Rs1 a minute for video calling including including tax.

    There should be plans for video calling.

    Quite costly if you think about it! Its like saying its Rs1 a minute for a call, but its actually video calling. I suppose the steaming would not be so fast either, I am kind of imagining a video call and its not clear and voice is being delayed...

    I can't imagine why someone would do a video call at 2 p/s. One can as well use Skype which will be free. Of course, Skype will need a smartphone/tablet but then most people interested in video calls will have that anyway.

    Check out Tango. I see a lot of youngsters using Tango these days and it is free for both voice and video calls and also has text. It is available on Android as an application via Google Play not sure about iOS.

    Video calling is not as popular especially since applications like WhatsApp have been created, even Skype which has been the most popular and known video calling and voice calling application.

    I decided to try video calling once, and never again did I use video calling again, it ate up my balance!! I just use Skype for video calling now as it just uses up my data and not my balance.
