    Is there a way to video chat between the D3 and my wifes laptop? Everything i have seen is from phone to phone or phone to tablet.

    I'm interested in this one too... I would think they would have something like that all ready to go by now.

    Anyone got an update on this?

    I've tried the cracked Skype, Fring, Yahoo, nothing works properly with the Droid 3's FFC D:

    One of the reasons I got this phone was to be able to vchat with my girlfriend when we weren't both at home....

    I think there used to be an issue on Froyo and earlier Android versions in that the FFC code was not unified between manufacturers. I thought I had read that once Gingerbread came along it would include standard code for FFC and then video chat would work. I was wrong or Skype hasn't updated yet.

    I did get the app Vtok to work, it works through gtalk on the pc. Quality isn't great and there is a 5 or 6 second delay but it gets the job done.
