When the Samsung Nexus S on T-Mobile received the update to Gingerbread 2.3.4 it included G-Talk with video. In theory, with this update, you would be able to video chat with your G-Talk contacts using your Nexus S Android phone, much in the same way you can on a computer. After a very quick honeymoon with the video feature over T-Mobile’s 3G/4G network that quickly changed. Many Android users became frustrated when they saw a message requiring wi-fi for this functionality.
When Geek.com writer and Android evangelist, Russell Holly noticed the problem he began to ping the T-Mobile USA official twitter account, run by Dan Anderson. After a month of no replies on the issue Holly wrote about it in one of his freelance columns.
Phandroid is now reporting that they have received emails from Nexus S users that say that 3G video chatting is back on T-Mobile. There’s nothing to suggest if this is permanent or a test, but for now this is great news.
