I dont think that you can video call to a mobile from a laptop. You could use the webcam on a laptop to call another laptop using MSN or Skype etc.

Answer: Big no.

You can use a 3rd party software as skype or Gtalkon both, but videocall using 3 networks NO.

Bear in mind, it's not a phone you're plugging into your laptop, it's just a data connection.

If you want to make phone calls using it, use Skype with it on your laptop. If you want to do video calls, again, use MSN on your laptop.

Once the USB stick is plugged in, it's absolutely no different to using your wired PC with the internet. It has nothing to do with phones at all.
