You have probably moved on from this but thought i would post an answer anyway.I just bought this phone and am able to make a video call with it. Ofcourse if i want to c the person i called i have to keep turning the phone around but usually i dont bother. It does work well for me though. There are some other things that need to be fixed in this app but that one works well

Yes you just cant see each other at the same time. So if you want them to see you you have to turn the phone around. Then if you want to see them turn it back so you can see skype. Personally as skype eats into your date using video i don't use it much. Just too expensive

Wifi doesn't make a difference as there is only one camera
