Anybody use this?

Just got the c905 and have tried out the video calling with my gf.
It's pretty cool and she says my pic is clear.
I can see her ok BUT she cant see me unless i turn the phone round. So if i do this, i cant see her????
This kinda defeats the object.
Am i being stupid or something?
When in a video call, i have tried all the options but can't see a way for her to see me and me to see her at the same time??

Ive looked in the instruction manual and it just says "You can share experiences with friends and family as they happen or save them and share later. You see the person you are talking to on your screen. The other person sees what is on your main camera."!!!

It sounds like i wont be able to see her while she sees me but this seems a bit strange?

Anybody got any ideas or used this?

Cheers

Does it have a second camera? That might not be that clear. If you do should be in the options where it says secondary camera or similar.

Not all 3g phone have video calling. I don't think there is a front facing camera in 905...

There is a small circle in the bar at the top of the phone which i presumed was the camera but i dont know??
There is nothing in the options about a 2nd camera when in a video call?

EDIT* Ive just found out that the small circle is a light sensor!!!!!

Was really hoping to use this as it is included as part of my inclusive minutes and is just the same as a normal call (which i was surprised at), but if i cant see my gf then theres not much point.

Put a mirror in front of your phone, with a bit jiggling you should get a reasonable reflection. Not ideal but better than nothing. . .

How stupid though. Just defeats the object IMO.

Seems odd that they've sold you a video calling plan but given you a none video calling phone !

Yeh not really ideal

Well its not a non video calling phone cos i can be seen but only by the camera on the back of the phone. So when my gf sees me, i cant see her n vice versa
