I just bought this phone and it is awesome.  But after I loaded Skype I could not make or receive video calls.  Can anyone tell me if this feature is supposed to work with this phone?  Or, since the phone was only released on September 28th, will this feature be added anytime in the near future?  The phone does have Android Gingerbread 2.3.  Thanks!

Did you try enabling videocalling via the app's settings? That is: Once you've opened Skype press the hardware (!) settings button on your device to open the settings and check the videocalling option there. 


Please let us know if this works, so we can consider making this the default for this device. Unfortunately there are so many Android phones on the market its impossible for our team to test all of them
