Won't work in the UK if that's where you are - do give up trying!

If you want to use the camera I suggest a cheap app which is called HD Camera Kindle edition - then you can work the camera itself easily!

I am in the US but when I signed up for skype and I was putting my info in for my profile I realized by default it automatically selects UK as your country I was having the same problem u guys were but as soon as I went into my profile and switched where I was from it worked right away.

I've found that both callers have to be in each others contact list as per Amazon help.  Mine now works.
