    Looking to buy either a Razr or GN, or maybe the rumored Razr Maxx. Has anyone used Skype in the Razr? Does it work well?

    Thanks.

    Yes, it works fine over 3G, 4G, and wifi.

    Note: I use the regular Skype, NOT "Skype mobile for Verizon".

    It works save for the video calling part. Not sure if this issue have been fixed by the Skype devs.

    Its personal preference really. They are from a hardware point basically the same but do you want ics now or can you wait? From a few friends I heard there's a lot of little bugs with the nexus but good luck with your choice

    I tried Skype today. Video calls will not work on my Razr. I get a distorted video picture of myself on my phone while dialing. When the connection is made my Razr says video not supported. My wife's iPhone 4s seems to work fine, I can see the image from her phone. I can't send an image from my Razr.

    Video calling works for me. I use the Skype from the market not the Verizon Mobile version. I've made video calls to other iPhone, iPad, and Desktop users fine. Flawlessly switch back and forth between the front and back cam as well both on 4G and WiFi.

    I too am using Skype from the market. After my original post I tried Skype again and this time the video worked. I didn't change any settings so I don't why it started working. I'll try it again tonight to see if it is still working.

    Skype seems to be working fine at this time. I made a couple calls this evening and had no problems. I also tried google talk and got that working between my Razr and a PC. Skype video quality seemed better.

    I have it, but don't understand how to use it, or get it to work at all. Anyone do a good, quick 'for dummies' basic how-to?

    Basically video calling to computer, but mainly to another phone with video.
