But the reality is that it won't be used by the vast majority after one or two "gee whiz cool" tries. Other phones have had front cameras and discovered the same thing. Apple bent to peer pressure on this one and came out with it because of all the complaints. Honestly even if you could on 3g to any other phone, how often would the average guy do a video call with one of his buddies or the bank or with someone at work? People are too used to audio only telephoning and video calls will not take over any time soon.
