Hi
I am using iPhone 4S and my family friend is using Nokia E5. We both have internet access and so we thought of using VoIP apps available in app-store. We downloaded fring and I was working on it to make a video call for hours and hours and I couldn't. If I call him,my front camera is showing me on my screen and instead of showing my friend ,it shows just black screen.If my friend calls me,he can see me (in small screen but two diagonally divided mirror images,not clear as well ) but I cant see anything other than a blank screen. Does anybody knows some other applications.

Tango, Skype are the other 2 biggies that come to mind. Both are free

You both have to be using the same app to make that work. Fring to Fring, Skype to Skype and so forth.

Hmmm... that should work. I would email their tech support to see if they have any listed issues between the 2 devices

The problem is that your friend's Nokia E5 does not have a front-facing camera.

If he uses his Nokia, he'll be able to see you, but you won't be able to see him.

If he uses a computer with a webcam (or a different phone or iPod Touch or iPad etc. with a front facing camera) you'll be able to see him and he'll be able to see you.
