    So I fired up skype to try out the video chat. Skype says my camera is ready but it never actually works. I can see other people fine, but my camera does nothing. Anyone have this problem?

    I don't have the RAZR but I'm pretty sure a lot of phones have this problem. I'm pretty sure its skype not playing nice with GB and the variety of phones.

    My camera didnt work with Skype either. I tried gtalk and Tango both work fine but Tango was way easier to use. Two thumbs up for Tango!

    I tried Skype-ing with my GF's Revolution. Her camera worked fine, and I could see the image fine on my phone. My RAZR camera (both front and back) did not work......

    Can you take a picture of yourself with the front camera, is it at all usable? Mine works fine doing video chat (not skype).

    My front camera didn't work with Skype either. The camera was on and Skype showed the video box but no picture.

    Sounds like an issue with Skype. Im sure if enough users will alert Skype to it there will be an update coming..

    Same problem here

    I can see others, but they can't see me. Skype did give the choice of switching between front and back cameras, but it didn't make a difference. I also got a message on installing that Skype wasn't supported on the device yet or something along those lines. Hopefully it's just a bug that will get fixed, but if anyone has a solution, I'd like to hear it.

    Skype has to update their app to be compatible with new phones. Hopefully, razr will be included in the supported devices list soon...

    They told me at VW that Skype isn't supported yet. Tango worked for me.
