Make & Receive an AT&T Video Call

AT&T Video Call lets you make and receive HD Voice calls combined with real-time video.


Prenote info

All AT&T Video Call participants need a video call capable device and a postpaid wireless account that is set up for AT&T HD Voice. At this time Video Call is only available between AT&T customers within AT&T HD Voice coverage areas. Each call uses both voice & data. The HD Voice part of the call is billed as a regular voice call, while the video portion of the call incurs data usage charges. No voice or data charges apply once a Video Call hands over to Wi-Fi. Certain restrictions, requirements or limitations may apply. Visit AT&T Video Call for more details.
