Fix for Video calling:
We learnt that even after having the secondary camera Micromax A70 users were not able to do video calling on their phone using Fring. So we got a very easy fix for it that was suggested in one of the forums on Internet. Here's the fix- open the Fring application on your phone and than quit it. Now open the camera and switch to front facing secondary camera and reopen Fring. Thats it Fring video calls will work now on your A70. It has been tested and confirmed by A70 users. Enjoy.!
