Basically, bandwidth priority for video calls. Yes, people over there were making full fledged video calls on their cells phones, 8 years ago, with no WiFi needed. True story. (And Steve Jobs made it sound like FaceTime was something "new" and "revolutionary..." Heh, bite my metallic Android @$$!)

Anyway, long story short, Cingular/AT&T Wireless, for whatever reason or another, never decided to implement the protocol stack necessary to make video calls over UMTS. I know they briefly experimented with instant video messaging (where you could be on a call, take a video, and then send it as a message), but supposedly that never caught on. THEN, when video calling really might have caught on, they still had an exclusive deal with Apple, and of course it wouldn't have been in Apple's best interest if every phone could make and receive video calls... I mean, what would be so special about FaceTime then? Nothing...

Finally, today, AT&T still hasn't implemented video calling. Why? Who knows... They'll probably spin the whole "spectrum shortage" spiel as an excuse for not implementing a standard which has been available to the rest of the world for nearly a decade...

Then again, maybe they'll roll out this feature once they've rolled out LTE--wait a second... Chuck Testa is calling...

How did you two even get the video call button to appear in your dialers? It shouldn't be there if you got the US models.

You probably don't have video calling activated with your operator or they don't support it.

Your operator doesn't support phone to phone video calling. No US operator supports it afaik.
