Just because your mobile handset has 3G features it does not mean you can use the video calling facility. Technically for video calling your handset needs to have a secondary camera placed somewhere on the front side. So when you are video calling you are looking at the other person’s image on your mobile display screen at the same time the camera that is present in the front is also capturing your image and sending to the other person.
So if you are buying a mobile phone or a smartphone especially for video calling make sure it does have a secondary camera. There are many 3G handsets available in the Indian market from low price 3G handsets to high end models however even high end models sometimes feature only one primary camera. Even with a secondary camera the handset may not support video calling it will be better if you cross check when you buy any handset with dual cameras. Older version of android phones do not support native video calling but you can use apps like Skype etc to get the video calling feature. The Android (Gingerbread) and above does support native video calling.
Here is a list of 3G mobile phones (with their price tag) that come with a secondary camera especially for making video calls.
