    I have never been able to get video chat to work. I've added my daughters playbook to the addresses and it shows calling but doesn't ring through to her. Wonder what I am doing wrong

    If you're using the same BBID, that's where the issue is.

    What?! People can use third party apps to video chat?...oh wait.

    (sarcasm)

    As for your issue, I too think it has to do with the BBID.

    Uh., sorry, you don't pay for wifi data... Unless you are using a Mobile hotspot created by a device that is not on an unlimited data plan.

    As far as I know, the videochat app on the PB only works over wifi. I'm not sure if it works when using the mobile hotspot wifi from a smartphone. And if the PB is not connected to wifi, the videochat won't work over the bluetooth bridge connection.

    When your PB is connected to wifi, there should be no data charges, unless your Internet service provider charges you based on how much data you use, such as in New Zealand. Here in Canada, most home wifi has a fixed monthly fee with no extra fees based on data usage.

    Don't forget to check if she has turned the "accept calls" setting to "off". See the following article from the PB Help:

    Yes it works in Canada. I just had a chat with a guy on Telus and it worked fine.

    While we were chatting, he asked about using the videochat between 2 PB's on the same wifi network. Anyone know if that will work?

    Also, I seem to recall that, if you have 2 PB's on the same BBID, you can videochat as long as you connect using the Pins.

    I have used 2 PBs on the same wifi network, but they have different BBIDs.

    I have also tried 2 PBs with the same BBIDs on this the same wifi network....they wouldn't connect.

    I have yet to try 2 PBs with the same BBIDs on different networks.

    The video and audio is supreme. Just don't understand why BB is not capitalizing on it....need to bring PB back into it's new business strategy no doubt. Because the video crushes any video chat app google has....even with their games.
