Video Calls Through Mobile Phones.

Video Calls can be made or received from most part of the island using the latest Smartphone.To make like these kinds of calls both parties must have atleast 3G enabled mobile phones. And both parties must be in the 3G network signal available areas. Most of the cities in Srilanka do have the 3G network through their carriers and more customers have 3G enabled gadgets like iPhone 5, Nokia N Series, Samsung Galaxy and many other popular brand cellular phones. Here all the carriers allow their customers to receive IDD video calls with superior video and voice clarity for free of charge. If someone dialing from s foreign country, all they have to do is to select the video-call option and have to hold the phone in front of them. They can see the reciver live in the phone screen while on the other side the receiver can view the video of the caller while both parties can talk and listen to the conversation.

If you are looking for a new phone with video communication facility, look for a handset which is coming with front and rear cameras. If you have rear end camera only, then you can have only the incoming video-calls and the other person won't be able to watch you in his screen. Also the single camera will have high resolution so the image may take long time to appear and will be distorted too. If you have trouble in viewing the image and getting the voice together, then go to voice call only as there may be problem with the broad band connection speed.

Here Smartphone owners can make local video calls and IDD video calls any time through their carrier.

With the Dialog Telekom carrier local video calls may cost around LKR 3/- while IDD video calls may cost around LKR 7/- per minute. All they have to do is simply dial the IDD number and select the video option. Then hold their mobile phone in front of them to view the receiver on the LCD screen. (This kind of service is depends on the availability of 3G network.)

If both parties have Skype App installed in their handset, they can make video calls through internet for cheaper price paying only for the internet connection and dial up charge. Through the Wi-Fi hotspots it is free or cheaper to make video calls from Srilanka through the Skype program.
