Default Video Calling

My wife and myself recently upgraded our mobiles, both Nokia 6288, her with
3 and me with Optus. No problems apart from the fact that when I place a
video call to her I can't see her, but can hear her, although she says she
can see me and hear me perfectly. Me thinks that there is something wrong
with her phone because it always comes up with 'Operation failed' on her
phone when a video call takes place even though the call goes through.
Should she contact 3 or is there something else we should do first.

Regards Michael

I expect it will be a cross-network issue, similar to the early days
of SMS. When SMS first came out it was only within each network and
you couldn't send an SMS to a phone on another network, eventually
when the networks got their act into gear we could finally send SMS to
other networks.

When Tel$tra and Vodf!@k first started their 3G networks I attempted
video calls to and from a 3 phone with no success at all. It appears
they are working on it but which network is at fault is anyone's guess
and good luck if you can find out which! Best bet is for you both to
conntact your carrier's customer support and lodge a fault report with
them.

On a side note, you are wasting money if you are calling each other on
your mobiles by being with different carriers. If you were both on
the same network you could save a packet on phone calls.

None of that really matters, because video calls are a wank and no one
actually uses them

1: you should swap sims around and see if the issue follows with the sim
then if it does call optarse and get them to set up video calling PROPERLY .
What happens when she call you via video

Operation failed usually means the camera isn't working. Take it in for
repair.
