Verizon Messages (Tablets) - Place a Video Call

  • Ensure Wi-Fi is enabled on the endpoint (tablet).
  • Video calling requires both parties to have the LTE video calling add-on active on the primary phone. This means both parties must be Verizon customers.
  • No Minutes of Use (MOU) or data plan charges apply when a Video Call originated or received on Wi-Fi while in USA.
  • International long distance charges apply to calls made to an international number from US.
  • Video calls can't be made to international numbers.
  • While traveling internationally no charges apply to calls made back to the US. However, calling local international numbers are billed at the international rate per calling plan.
  • Video calls can be made on the tablet to/from VZW customers outside the US, as long as they have a data connection. If the data connection is cellular, data usage charges are incurred according to the data plan.
