my Verizon galaxy 7"tab mic worked fine in skype from about November 22 to early Dec 2011. since then, nada. the mic now always has a bar across it. seems like verizon and/or skype do not want you to use the tab for skype, & cant get to any mic controls for skype on the tab.
i was having the same issue with my klipsch earphone with mic. come to find out its not skypes issue its samsung not suporting your earphones cause i tried with the earphones w/mic that came with the tab 10.1 and what do you know it worked. i dont know what the deal with samsung is but its crappy on their part
I see that this is an ongoing problem, and the fact people STILL are unable to use mic's on their Galaxy Tabs means that Skype either don't read these forums, or can't be bothered to fix their customers problems!!!
I got the Tab because the iPad doesn't support flash, but now I am wondering if I need to purchase another device so I can speak to my wife and kids when I am on the move.
Kind of defeats the whole point of Skype doesn't it?
