    Rubbish, I can only message and not video. Not even worth 1 star. Microsoft sucks the big hairy meatball

    ****** off with this app. Someone calls me and I don't even get the notifications. I have go inside to find out someone texted me and called me so many times. APP DEVELOPERS FIRST IMPROVE THE BASIC APPS NECESSARY FOR SMART PHONE AFTER THAT YOU CAN CREATE HUNDREDS OF OTHER ******** APPS.

    Its painfully slow to start up Its very laggy and slow in use - for example when dialling a number, it doesn't respond to key presses, and sometimes gives a key tone, most often not. It takes ages to try to connect a call It automatically disconnects a call after only 6 rings If a contact in your address book has more than one number, it only shows the first one, so you cannot call that persons other numbers. There's often no ring tone when dialling out, the call just fails for no reason Did I mention its painfully painfully slow? Lumia 820 - Denim Total **** - I regret buying credit to make calls out, as its almost impossible to use the credit as the app is so bad.
