Same issue.  This NEEDS to get fixed.  I can't believe how stupid this is.  I mean seriously... no ffc access?  Get on it Skype!

Yes we need this fixed, no point to having a front facing camera if you can't do video chat?

I totally agree and I am major disappointed in this. It's pointless. I bought this phone with the intention of video calling.

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.

This does need to be fixed. It is ridiculous that skype would not support the front camera. The video application can do it just fine. Why can Skype not handle this simple task?
