How can I get the front facing camera on my HTC Thunderbolt to work with Skype? And how can get the speaker to work also. I can make video calls but Skype only has an option for back camera.
I agree. It's assinine and it makes no sense at all. I do believe, however that it was intended but that is soley my opinion. Anyway, complaining here, according to the disclaimer, is not going to make any difference with our issue.

I saw a note when I downloaded the app that it's not supported with Froyo(2.2) and only Gingerbread(2.3) and above. In theory this should work when the Thunderbolt updates to Gingerbread, but I don't know when that is.
I agree this is lame, but it is HTC that has been lagging on their update for months
Try Yahoo Messenger in the mean time. It works like a charm with the front facing camera. Have been using it since I got my thunderbolt when it came out. It's the second best thing.
