    Looks like Skype made there app available to Thunderbolt users in the market. You can now go in and toggle on video chat, though they warn since it isn't "officially supported" yet the video quality might not be as good as it is on other devices.

    It works, but unless you have GB you still can't use the front facing camera.

    The front camera works on mine. I also tried it on my wife's incredible 2 and it wasn't available yet.

    Sorry I stand corrected. It is only the rear camera. When will the front work on it or will it ever. Kinda sucks not seeing the person your talking to.

    Did you download the blue icon one from the market for your wife? The native Skype that came with the phone doesn't have the ability to enable video.

    Download the blue icon one from the market (for her). once you install and sign in, go to the settings, and make sure the Enable Video Calls is checked.

    It looks Skype will have front camera available in GB. Something about the camera control for the front camera not being native in the OS. Pretty lame seeing that the leaked Skype version had both cameras working fine. I suppose it was hard coded to enable the front one though.

    If your going to do a program for a phone why not do it right the first time. Meaning check it out before putting it out there.
