It’s been a delicate issue within the Android community, mainly with those who are current T-Mobile customers. If you recall, the latest update of Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread brought with it a much anticipated new feature, video chat. A lot of users were ecstatic with the new prospect of Google Talk’s video chat feature. But that excitement was quickly turned to outrage when users who attempted to take advantage of video calling were prompted by a message stating this feature was only available via WiFi. It was a puzzling move by T-Mobile but it looks as though they may have had a change of heart.

We have been receiving our share of Phanmail from happy Nexus S users notifying us that they are now able to make video calls using the new Google Talk app via 3G. Cruising by Reddit, I found a few users on that site experiencing the same thing. I don’t know exactly what is going on but it looks as if T-Mobile has finally flipped the 3G switch on Google Talk’s video chat feature. Let us know in the comments if this is working for you.

Thanks, to everyone who sent this in!
