@Mr.LOVER try third party apps.There are a lot of features that can be added to a phone, software wise.ROM devs usually try to keep their ROM size low, while maintaining a medium range of features.And most apps which you can easily obtain from playstore are usually excluded from the ROM.

I haven't tried videocalling with my phone yet.But I'm pretty sure you can videocall with this phone, just get an app for it.

Don't think any app can do real 3G video calling as it's heavily RIL dependant. I saw traces of such code in frameworks, but as it's not exposed anywhere I guess LG has abandoned it finally. How could it keep a stable connection if even single RIL standby crashes constantly?

i'm not talkin about video calling over internet like skype. i'm talkin about video calling through network call. and no 3rd party gives that option, if there is any app then please correct me and tell me it's name. i have free video calling on my network, it only charges me normal call rates even if i make a video call. but our phone doesn't have video call feature in dialer or in contacts.
so i was asking if any rom has it or not.

i'm sorry but i don't understand your language (technical terminologies). i think you're saying it's not possible for any dev to add this feature in a rom? or even through xposed framework?

Short answer: Yes, it's not possible. Long answer: There is always a chance that someone takes the challenge and extends the code, but it is probably an enormous work and might not even be possible.
