O Technology

Soldier and I use MSN messenger to communicate via webcam. While he was deployed it worked great and we were able to see each other. Since he’s been at his training is hasn’t worked at all. It wont connect us. It is SOO frustrating, we spend more time playing around with the computer trying to get it to work then actually talking and I just get frustrated during every call. I even upgraded my internet connection, thinking that would help. No dice. I think now we’re going to download Skype and see how that works.

I know I shouldn’t complain, he gets a 4 day pass over Thanksgiving, but it sure would be nice to see him now... What do you use to communicate with web cams?


  1. My fiance and I had used MSN Messenger and it stopped working for us about a month ago. We switched to Skype and although we have had some iffy connections because of the weather sometimes, it has worked rather well for us. Good luck!

  2. Rich & I use Skype! Some days the connection is great- other times it's the pits - all depends on which was the wind blows in the sand box!

  3. I used skype when he was in training and I wasn't there yet. Worked great for us as long as the internet was stable. If you're on wireless try plugging into the modem. Good Luck!
