Neither my bluetooth works or the speakerphone. The only way it works is when I have it plugged into the radio speaker.

I'm installed skype(V in my devices.
But skype camera didn't work for video calling.
Of course, I did enable video calls in the settings.
I can see others' video but nobody can see mine no matter what camera I use.


Please, let me know why camera don't work for video calling.

Here's quick workaround for bluetooth headset to work with skype:
(tested on Samsung Galaxy S 4G, Gingerbread android, newest skype, several Bluetooth headsets)
-Quit Skype (task manager->exit)
-Disconnect your bluetooth headset (in settings\network)
-Plugin your wired headset (any will do)
-Open skype and make sure the audio go through your wired headset (make a test call then end)
-Press home (this put skype in a standby mode in memory, not quit)
-Unplug your headset and connect your BT headset.

-Make a call to your voicemail then end it to make sure audio go through BT
-Restore skype. It will be trick into thinking it is still using the headset while it is actually using the BT. As long as you don't quit skype or disconnect the BT, it will stay working.
Works for me.

BTW if it works for you too, please go and post around the net so other people will know.

How do you mean the video does not work?  Have you tried enabling it in the settings menu?
