My SO got a new phone a few weeks ago, and I got a new phone last week. Now, we both have the ability to video Skype chat using our phones!!! I am so excited, because sometimes skyping through the computer is annoying, you have to stay in one spot, hook up the camera, etc. Now we can video chat from pretty much anywhere! (At least anywhere with 3/4G and/or wifi).
LDRs suck, but technology like this makes them suckjust a little bit less on those days I just want to see his face 🙂

Yay! I always wished I would’ve had a front facing camera so we could Skype more often when we were long distance. Skype was our livelihood when we were 1300 miles away, so I can definitely share your excitement! I would always say to Darling Husband (FI then) what would we do without technology?! Congrats 🙂

I totally wish I had a Blackberry for BBM but it’s just not worth the investment right now. Texting costs sooo much. We’re on Skype and emails for now. But I can appreciate how much nicer it must be for you guys 🙂

When Darling Husband and I were LD we used the FaceTime feature of our iPhones. It never failed to make me smile in that first instant when his face would pop up on my phone!

That sounds fun! My husband and I never used any kind of video-chatting during our LDR. I kinda wish we had now!

I totally agree. Darling Husband got me a smartphone for Christmas and Skype on the phone is much better than Skype on the computer. Also, WhatsApp has been a great way to text without international fees for the messages and to send photos when we are not both online at the moment.
