Guess you are talking about what webcam to buy and you don't actually want to buy the multi billion dollar company! I also assume you are on a 5GiG plan instead of 5M!

Something like a Logitech C270 HD would do well
Its a 720p resolution (high Definition) and takes still pics at 3mp and has built in microphone. approx $41 but shop around.
Your BB performance will be fine for this, and yes ALL internet access is part of your monthly allowance - just try it and go easy until your next bill!
You should also be able to check your BB usage online - check your ISP website for a link.

You don't need to buy Skype its free to do video chat and audio chat.But if you were wanting to do a video chat with multi people at the same time then its $13 per month.Skype Groups

To video chat with a few people at the time for free, you and your mates may like to look at this:

Yeh we tried that, but didn't find the quality very good.Mite improve though

It does not matter whether you buy cheap or dear it will not what you see.it is the person on the other end gets the benefit. I only paid $25.00 for mine off TRADEME.no one has complained about the quality.Broadband speed will make or break the quality. Haven't noticed any marked increase in broadband usage.

Tell Microsoft that since they own skype and maybe do improvements on their next xbox
