....That doesn't exist. All video calling uses data.

Skype is your best bet.
..and the guy above is right.. even with those phones, they still use Data for video calls. You can't send video without data.. thats fact.

I think the OP is referring to Google talk video chat over 3G.
Am I right?

You're playing with words...
He means native video support via the phone contacts, like a normal voice call, but using video, it uses your mins or costs if your data plan doesn't give you free mins, rather than using your data allowance, instead of using an app like Skype or Gtalk...

I don't think people even know what normal video calls are. Using Skype or Gtalk on your mobile is new, But doing normal 3g video calls have been available since 2003 in the UK at least.

I dunno why people are like this on forums, it's highly annoying. It's some techie sort of snobbery (word play) or ignorance (as in they don't even know)... Either way I don't like it...
It was pretty obvious what he was asking...

I hate it when people say use Skype instead, that really annoys me, that implies the person you want to call is always on Skype, which they're not. With normal video calls, it calls the number like a voice call, so you have access anytime, as long as they have a 3g signal.
