How to use Video Calling on my mobile phone

Video Calling lets you see and hear the person you're talking to on your mobile phone and lets them see and hear you.

You can make video calls to and receive calls from other Bell Video Calling subscribers. To use Video Calling you'll need a Video Calling-capable phone.

To see if your phone is Video Calling-capable, visit the Support page to read the user guide for your phone.

Video calling is available throughout Canada on the Bell HSPA network. See our coverage maps to learn where the HSPA network is available.

You can only make and receive video calls with your mobile phone while you’re within Canada.
