FYI I spoke with Toshiba today 1/12/2012 and they told me to update to android 3.2, I did and now skype works on the Thrive with video.

Toshiba gave you bad advice.  Yes skype works.  But under 3.2 the mount point for your SD card changes, so some apps will no longer be able to access the SD card.

This is because you did not yet enable video calling in Skype Settings.

uninstall your current version of skype.

go to
to download the older version of skype.

I've done all that! Upgraded my Thrive Android, downloaded skype 2.5.160, & enabled video calling in settings! Been playing with this for 2 months now & it's very frustrating. I've got separate skype names for my tablet & home computer & calls work within my home network but not elsewhere. I don't get much out of talking to myself though...A definitive answwer from Toshiba or Skype would be nice.

what do you mean calls work within you home network.  you can call out with video, or just to another PC inside thew home?   Are you able to do voice to out side to another person?   Dont expect Toshiba or Skype to help , you'll find answers faster seeking others on good forums.  go to
