    My wife and myself recently upgraded our mobiles, both Nokia 6288, her with
    3 and me with Optus. No problems apart from the fact that when I place a
    video call to her I can't see her, but can hear her, although she says she
    can see me and hear me perfectly. Me thinks that there is something wrong
    with her phone because it always comes up with 'Operation failed' on her
    phone when a video call takes place even though the call goes through.
    Should she contact 3 or is there something else we should do first.

    Regards Michael

    I expect it will be a cross-network issue, similar to the early days
    of SMS. When SMS first came out it was only within each network and
    you couldn't send an SMS to a phone on another network, eventually
    when the networks got their act into gear we could finally send SMS to
    other networks.

    When Tel$tra and [email protected] first started their 3G networks I attempted
    video calls to and from a 3 phone with no success at all. It appears
    they are working on it but which network is at fault is anyone's guess
    and good luck if you can find out which! Best bet is for you both to
    conntact your carrier's customer support and lodge a fault report with
    them.

    On a side note, you are wasting money if you are calling each other on
    your mobiles by being with different carriers. If you were both on
    the same network you could save a packet on phone calls.

    None of that really matters, because video calls are a wank and no one
    actually uses them

    1: you should swap sims around and see if the issue follows with the sim
    then if it does call optarse and get them to set up video calling PROPERLY .
    What happens when she call you via video

    Operation failed usually means the camera isn't working. Take it in for
    repair.
