When you activate video sharing, the loudspeaker is automatically activated. If you do not want to use the loudspeaker, you can use a compatible headset.

Set up video sharing

To set up video sharing, you need person-to-person and 3G connection settings.

A person-to-person connection is also known as a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) connection. The SIP profile settings must be configured in your device before you can use video sharing. Contact your service provider for the SIP profile settings, and save them to your device. Your service provider may send you the settings in a configuration message or give you a list of the needed parameters.

Set up a person-to-person connection

  1. Select Menu > Settings and Connectivity > Admin. settings > SIP settings and a SIP profile.

  2. Enter the needed SIP profile settings.

Edit video sharing settings

Select Menu > Settings and Connectivity > Video sharing.

Use a 3G connection

For details about networks, contact your service provider.

Add a SIP address to a contact

  1. Select Menu > Contacts.

  2. Select a contact or create a new contact.

  3. Select Options > Edit.

  4. Select Options > Add detail > Share video.

  5. Enter the SIP address in the format username@domainname (you can use an IP address instead of a domain name).

    If you do not know the SIP address for the contact, you can use the phone number of the recipient, including the country code, to share video (if supported by the network service provider).
