    Skype was working fine on my TB until updated. I should've left well enough alone...neophyte! Should I be considering this rooting?

    me too

    I've found some posts with links to post ota "working" fixes, but none of them do video on my stock t-bolt. Glad they fixed the random reboots for those that were being crushed by them, just sucks it killed the skype video that someone was cool enough to get working before.

    Appreciate the thought about Tango, but I need to be able to do video chat between my phone and laptop...
    Thanks for taking the time to try and help though.

    I am so upset too about losing Skype...loved it!! Does Qik work to laptop? Is Skype video chat supposed to come back at the Gingerbread release?

    Same here. There is no way my Dad is learning how to use another program. He couldn't even install it. It's Skype or nothing and, if this is what the updates do, then I shall not be updating again, Gingerbread or not. There's no point in updating the OS if you lose your essential apps. Skype is now gone...
