Skype for Android

If you own the HTC Thunderbolt it is likely and have tried a video call with Skype it is likely you could only use the rear facing camera.  We have heard from many readers that they cannot get the Thunderbolt to switch to the front facing camera.  We have confirmed this behavior and all we know is Thunderbolt Users may have to wait on Gingerbread for a fix.  Hopefully that is not the case.

    This is crazy. It’s cool that Skype is getting the Mobile Updated for HTC Thunderbolt but why have a front cam if you can’t us it. I hope they fix asap.

    Finally Skype came with Video call option update. But they’ve not yet updated the use of front cam in HTC Thunderbolt. Any idea from the users on the update or any alternate idea to use the front cam?

    this is ridiculous … I can’t believe they’d make a phone with front facing camera that won’t run with skype

    This is horse shit, the thunderbolt has the technology and camera to get the front face camera to work, a simple update would fix it.

    When is the Gingerbread update REALLY coming out on the thunderbolt?  I heard this will fix the Skype problem.  I just downloaded it last night and was so disappointed to know that the only way the person I was skyping with could see me was to turn the phone around.  All fine and good but then I couldn’t see her.  That’s the whole purpose of video calling…. to see each other!
