    Still doesn't work for me. I can only see them, they can't see me.

    The video chat won't work on ffc unless you have 2.3 and your phone is listed.

    I got my skype update yesterday. I was disappointed that the motorola phones weren't on the "newly supported device" list. :(

    There was a check box to "enable video chat" and it even had the ability to choose Front/rear/no camera. BUT, the D3 isn't a listed "supported" device although they give the disclaimer that if you have Android 2.3 that it still *might* work despite not being on the list.

    I tried it. The quality was poor on 3G and not that much better on wifi. I could see the person on the PC, but they could never see me, and I could never see myself in the thumbnail spot where my own image should have been.

    I was actually kinda surprised that it's designed to work with video in landscape mode.

    I hope it gets better.

    Don't get your hopes up. Reviews for Skype's app have been trashing it for a while.

    I really wish they would get it together and get out support for some Motorola devices.
