What, you don't like showing your toes off when skyping? Can't you just point the back camera at a mirror? My son and I video skyped just fine by pointing our back cameras at each other--ok it helps to be in the same room. Now, for any realistic uses for skype, I will have to wait till the front camera works. FYI, my son tried downloading gingerbread on his thunderbolt 2.2 and that didn't allow ffc either. Dang.
