    I'm helping a buddy out with this new Bionic and we were trying to get Skype over 4G working. Is there a cracked .APK out that supports video chat over 4G using the front facing camera?

    A skype update is up in the market! Haven't tested it. It lists the bionic as 'landscape only'

    I'm not downloading that version. Apparently there are a lot of ads in it. I'll stick to the hacked ad free version.

    I downloaded it and got an error during the download re: package signing. Can't check to see if it works right now, but I may be going back to the cracked version, which works great on my Bionic.

    Anyone else download and actually get to try it out?

    I couldn't get the cracked version work. Enabled video in settings. Forced it in advance settings. Nothing. That's why I was waiting for the official one.

    I am fine with adds. We'll see.

    The signing issue when you download the update is from a signing key mismatch between the hacked version and the new update. Uninstall the hacked version first, then install the new Skype client through app market.

    When registering for an account in the phone number section what is the country code for the USA? It keeps stopping my registration because of this? (sorry to hijack thread! :)

    I have inlstalled the new Skype from the Android Market realeased today on to my Bionic. I had my wife update her version on her Ipod Touch 4th Generation and they worked. We can video call now She was on Wifi and I was on my 4G connection. It worked well. I used the Sony Iphone ear phones on my Bionic. They have the mic in the cord and my voice and my wifes voice was good. I was able to switch cameras from frount to back. It was a little confusing to get skype to show the buttons for switching the video, but I finally found the way to do it.
