    Used Fringe and worked great. You can switch from the front to back with the cameras. Tried ooVoo and it worked only from back camera. Skype still a no go.. interesting thing though. I rooted last night and flashed the system file before the one that you all have on the phone now, and Skype was baked into the system. Didn't work but explains that last update Verizon did before launch as well as some other minor things... So with that IMO Skype will be coming.. soon.. wait.. is it to early from our hypebeast to say coming soon...

    Is this not a Google phone? Is it really too much to ask for Google video chat to work? I mean seriously.

    Front Facing Chat

    How do you switch to the front facing camera?

    My Fring defaults to the back, and I cant figure out how to change it..

    Tango

    Use tango..ive talked to my sister with an ipod touch, my friend with a dx..of course he has to look into the camera for me to look at him...my friend with an evo..works great!

    They can see me and I can see them...if they dont have a ffc then they have to look at their camera but..thats because they dont have the sweet ffc

    Tango is where its at!

    Has anyone used their FFC to video chat yet? We've never done this and aren't sure what/how you go about doing that? Is there a built-in program or do we need to download an app from the market?
