My mom recently came to me, wanting to send movies over to my sister and brother-in-law, who are missionaries in the Philippines. Their little one and a half year old daughter, my neice, does not like the telephone. She got to be with us lots this summer (they came home because of my wedding) and she recognizes our faces, but when she hears their voices through the phone and can't see their faces, she does not understand and pushes the phone away, saying "no no".
My mom figures if they video themselves and send it over, she'll understand that just fine. So, she'll get my NEC 2500A (which hasn't seen tons of use) and I'll get an NEC 3500A. Works well all around.
