    How do you Video Call using your mobile network (instead of via internet data apps)?

    I work in a rural area with too many people for the mobile tower to handle so data speeds are terrible. This means you cannot video call using internet data based apps like Skype. My Australian mobile network Telstra seems to give prority to network video calls so I want to video call home using a billed video call through Telstra. I cannot find an option to video call a contact anywhere nor can Telstra help me. Older Samsungs have an option in contacts to either Call, Video Call or SMS someone. ICS / Nexus does not.
    Any ideas on how to Video Call a contact?

    Tango, Google+, and Viber will soon be ICS compatible. edit: I just reread your post, and these DO require 3G or better data...I think only Telstra can help you on this one. :|

    Gtalk - Google messaging app also has voice chat and video chat over both the mobile network and Wifi.

    Never used Skype. But I've never had any problems with Gtalk. With Gtalk both parties Ned to have either an Android phone or at least Gmail on the computer with a web cam.

    it should possibly be already on your phone but listed as "talk" in your app drawer or it can be downloaded from the market...
