I don't have option enable video calls in mu settings. I have zte atlas w android os 2.3.5 i have front camera but I CAN'T MAKE VIDEO CALLS!!!!!!
I have T-Mobile and Skype video does work with Galaxy s3. However, I found out that you must be Skyping to another Skype account ... not just to their mobile number. Doing that only gives you a Voice call option. When going through your contact list, be sure you are selecting a Skype account contact (and they need to be on-line (if it is their computer) or have the app running if it is their mobile phone.
Hope this helps. Love my Galaxy s3/Jellybean!
Yes, I also have the same issue. I am using a Galaxy Note2 and my daughter is using an iphone5. I can see her but she can not see me. I also get a note saying other user is not able to see me, enable video however I have video enabled in both settings. I have also tried toggling the settings to no avail. I guess we can try tengo.
Guys, in general, if you're having the SAME problem as the poster, PLEASE don't reply. The original poster could not possibly care less to hear that you ahve the same problem, this isn't a support group. The original poster just wants someone who can help him/her.
I have an S3 as well and I think I have found the issue.
It appears that only users who have added you as a contact can see your video when you're using a galaxy S3.
Make sure the other person has accepted a contact request/add and you are on thier contacts list - in all of my testing making sure contacts were added for users on both ends resolved all video problems.
Hope this helps!

I was trying to video call with my partner and he had the same problem where there wasn't a video icon. All he did was sync his phone with another email and everything ended up working out. I don't know if it was just a glitch, but that solved our problem. I hope this helps you!
