Re: Video chat between z10 and playbook

You cannot currently start a video conference from a z10 to a playbook that are using the same blackberry ID.

Re: Video chat between z10 and playbook

Hello,

Thanks for your support.

That means i would swipe my z10 or playbook and create new id for my phone or playbook so both ids will be different then it is possible to make video chat??

Re: Video chat between z10 and playbook

As pre drew, if the BB id's are the same on the playbook and z10, then the playbook can call the z10, but the z10 can't call the playbook. If you swipe the playbook and create a new ID, then the z10 can call the playbook. I have two playbooks that both my kids use and they video call each other and they also call me when I am on the road working. Last night I was working late and I called their playbook from my z10 and wished them a good night.. Great feature.. Here is a link on the video chat.

Hi Arsen,

 

Thanks for your kind reply.

 

What do you think if i create new blackberry ID for my Z10 instead i change for playbook? I think it would work this way also?

Re: Video chat between z10 and playbook

I think when you change the BB ID, it will also wipe the data, because it is designed to work with 1 ID, but give it a try.

Re: Video chat between z10 and playbook

Hello Arsen,

Thanks for your support.

I have done it. I did not have much data in z10 so i wipe the phone and created new bb id different than the playbook. Now i can make video calls between z10 and playbook.

Cheers,
Bilal
