    Default Skype vs Skype Mobile: Neither one works

    I am loving my Bionic but I am having difficulty getting Skype to work. I am able to receive video both from my son on his Incredible 2 and from my PC where I have a separate Skype account. The problem is my Front Facing Camera (FFC) doesn't send video. I have confirmed my FFC works. In Skype, I made sure the front camera was clicked and toggled back and forth just to prove it.
    Then I noticed Skype Mobile for Verizon on the Market. I loaded that but get the following message when it starts: "This version of Skype won't run on your device. Skype mobile with video is coming soon - you will receive an automatic update when it is available."
    Has anyone been able to get Skype Video-Video to work? If so, how?

    Thanks!

    Have not had a chance to try this yet, but I do see that at least on the non-Verizon version you still have to turn off Wi-Fi to login.

    No difference with Wifi on or off. Thanks though.

    Skype is only supported on certain devices, it takes a few days for them to update it for a new device
    There's a new phone that will run Crysis on Ultra at 120 fps on a 2160p display that's coming out 3 months after you buy your next phone.
