Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

VIDEO CALLS

A video call is a call whereby the caller and the called can see each other on their respective devices. BUT, till now video calls were permitted only on 3G networks. And not all have 3G on their mobile phones. Or, not all phones are 3G compatible. You can still make a video call even if you do not have a 3G enabled phone or you do not subscribe to 3G network. How? Read on.
Fring and Skype have jointly come out with a new Fring social network whereby all Skype users using Fring on their phones can now make video calls over WiFI networks. Meaning, if I am a Skype user and accessing Skype through Fring on my phone then I can make a video call to any other Skype user (through Fring) if I have access to a WiFi network. Whether my phone is 3G network capable or not or whether I subscribe to 3G networks or not. Only requirement is a front camera on my phone.
Skype is an Instant Messenger that allows free skype to skype calls over the internet and can be downloaded free from www.skype.com.
Fring is a combination of Instant Messengers that provides you the facility of using most of the IMs with just one login into Fring. And some of the social networks as well. It can be downloaded free from www.fring.com.

How do you display caller name and not just telephone number


Caller ID (caller identification, CID), also called calling line identification (CLID) or calling number identification (CNID), is a telephone service, available in analog and digital phone systems and most Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) applications, that transmits a caller's number to the called party's telephone equipment during the ringing signal, or when the call is being set up but before the call is answered. Where available, caller ID can also provide a name associated with the calling telephone number. The information made available to the called party may be displayed on a telephone's display or on a separately attached device.

how i can use video call


Make a video call
When you make a video call, you can see a real-time, two-way video between you
and the recipient of the call. The live video image or video image captured by the
camera in your device is shown to the video call recipient.
25
To be able to make a video call, you may need to have a USIM card and be in the
coverage of a UMTS network. For availability of and subscription to video call
services, contact your service provider. A video call can only be made between two
parties. The video call can be made to a compatible mobile phone or an ISDN
client. Video calls cannot be made while there is another voice, video, or data call
active.
You are not receiving video (the recipient is not sending video or the network
is not transmitting it).
You have denied video sending from your device.
1. Enter the phone number in the standby mode; or select Menu > Contacts, and
scroll to the desired contact.
2. Select Options > Call > Video call.
Starting a video call may take a while. Waiting for video image is shown. If the
call is not successful (for example, video calls are not supported by the
network, or the receiving device is not compatible), you are asked if you want
to try a normal call or send a message instead.
The video call is active when you see two video images, and hear the sound
through the loudspeaker. The call recipient may deny video sending, in which
case you hear the sound and may see a still image or a grey background
graphic.
To increase or decrease the volume during a call, press the volume keys.
To change between showing video or only hearing sound, select Enable or
Disable > Sending video, Sending audio, or Sending aud. & video.
To zoom your own image, select Zoom in or Zoom out. The zoom indicator is
shown on the top of the display.
To switch the places of the sent and received video images on the display,
select Change image order.
Even if you have denied video sending during a video call, the call will still be
charged as a video call. Check the pricing with your network operator or
service provider.
3. To end the video call, press the end key.
? Answer or reject a video call
When a video call arrives, is displayed.
26
Press the call key to answer the video call. Allow video image to be sent to caller? is
shown. If you select Yes, the image captured by the camera in your device is
shown to the caller. If you select No, or do nothing, video sending is not activated,
and a grey screen is shown in place of the video.
Even if you have denied video sending during a video call, the call is still charged
as a video call. Check the pricing with your service provider.
To end the video call, press the end key.
To reject the video call, press the end key, or select Options > Reject. To send a
text message to the caller informing why you cannot answer the call, select
Options > Send text message, for information on the settings, see “Phone,” p. 74.
