    Hi folks. This is my first post here after lurking for a while. Lots of knowledgeable folks on this forum so I hope someone çan help me. I downloaded Skype from the Android market. I used the same id and password as the Skype account I set up months ago on my PC. While Skype downloaded fine it only gives me the option of making phone calls. There is no video call option. The Skype version I installed is not the Verizon version. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Thanks timrock. However "Skype free video calling" is what I downloaded. Any other suggestions?

    Silly question, but did you go into settings and enable video calling?

    No question is silly with this stuff. Yes it is enabled. My choices are Contacts, Call Phones, Recent, and Profiles. Nothing for video calls.

    You have to go into contacts then, the people that are available for video chat will have a video icon next to them! :) You can just click that! :)
