Why in God's name is there no front camera. I can live without the flash but this is THE era which the US introduces video chat and yet they subtracted it from the Tmo version? Sprint obviously can handle it with 4G, Tmo obviously can handle it with HSPA+ and yet here we are.

i know WHAT DA FUCK why no front facing camera?? i am pretty sure t-mobiles hspa+ network would handle video calls better than sprint's wimax becuz its faster. i still cannot understand why the phones from t-mobile do not have front facing cameras. if there hspa+ network is faster than sprints 4G n with the evo u can make calls on 4G mode .. so why not on t-mobile?

because if they added it and made it wifi only like ATT did with the Iphone, ud bitch that it was WiFi only. If they made it network compatable and everyone bought this phone and shut down the network (sounds like ATT again), ud bitch because of the network overload. I mean seriously.. there is now a total of 2 phones with video chat, and only 1 of them works on network. Its also on the network with the most unused bandwith to play with. Its not the end of the world.. dayum! Besides, im sure by this time next year all carriers will have video chat.. Its gonna be the next "texting" or "full web".

i actually think that t-mobile network would be able to handle video calling much better than at&t becuz t-mobile has hspa+ running already which is faster than my time warner broad band connection at home. with time warner i get 8-10 mbps and i can do a perfect video call over skype now imagine doing a video call with t-mobiles hspa + running at 21 mbps i actually think it would be better .. so yea go figure

bueno yo que vivo en madrid our networks over here vodafone , orange,movistar,yoigo never have any problems with video calls. for example during rush our u see a lot of people in the metro pointing there phone to there face making video calls over 3G and u never hear them complaining about it being slow or lagging it . also everytime i do video calls over 3G i never have any problems . because our network can handle it. im pretty sure at&t network would not be able to handle video calling n dont give me the excuse that its because u have a lot of iphones on the network because we do toa lot of people have iphones over here too and we still never have any problems like u guys do.

I'm not so worried about the front facing camera. I can go w/out seeing people in call @ this point. I am a little concerned about the lack of a flash w/ a camera that can record @ such res. Why have the capabilities if I can only use it in bright rooms or outside? It's not a deal breaker but still... You know though...it's always the little things that seem to make a difference.

Did you see the Galaxy S or Tmobile's Vibrant model? I will be so thrilled if there is a FFC! My kids already skype with grandparents and this will make it even better!

Hey idiot's, This phone does have a front facing camera. I just bought one yesterday. Maybe it's disabled right now, but it does have one. T-mobile probably is waiting for HSPA+ network to get bigger before they update the phone and make the camera functional. The settings menu also has a setting for "camera 2". In the top left corner of the phone right next to the speaker there is a camera.

I do not see the setting for camera 2 under the settings menu. The t mobile sales man said that was a sensor on the front of the phone.
