    I just updated. The sound?....pure horror. But the video is a lot smoother and not choppy anymore.

    The sound issue is a software issue within the phone's camera itself, so anything Tango does will not really improve the quality...hopefully HTC and Verizon get an OTA out soon...perhaps with some Gingerbready goodness.

    It would be nice if they did that. One of the reasons I got this phone was the front facing camera for video calls - I can only take "so many" self portraits and self videos (without sound!!!).

    I wonder if the FFC audio problems were the reason for the Skype removal? Skype probably wouldn't let them release it with it being so bad.

    I wondered the same thing. But then I thought, it would be very disconcerting to know that verizon chose to just remove Skype instead of fixing the issue.

    Unless they tried and tried and tried and failed miserably (which seems to be the case). After all, us crazy TB people were on a witch hunt, about to shed blood if they didn't release it when we thought they should! :P

    You can set most apps to auto update.

    I downloaded Fring and did a test call with wifey. Fring wasn't using the FFC (front facing camera). Instead, it uses the back camera. Uninstalled.

    Fring is awesome, Tango blows. Frying calls always come through, and you can use a bluetooth earpiece with Fring. My kids use it to call me everyday, it's awesome.

    Tango would ring if I was in the asp when the call came in. Otherwise I'd never know.

    Hey guys,

    We are aware of the audio issues that are occurring on the HTC Thunderbolt. Our engineers are working hard on hoping to fix this issue soon.

    For optimal performance, please try adjusting the volume on the device to 1 click below the maximum level. This should greatly reduce some of the audio feedback you guys are having.

    Another temporary solution to this issue is to use a headset while making Tango calls.

    Rest assured we're not finished and are working very hard to keep improving sound quality.

    Stay tuned!

    Just tried video chat using Tango for my first video chat ever! It was awesome! Very buggy though. Picture froze once. Took forever for me to see the other party. The other party couldn't hear me too well unless I was loud and in a quiet room.

    But it was awesome! Can't wait for Skype. I was on 3G so I assume that was a lot of the issues.

    I had to delete because was too glitchy. Let me know how the latest update fairs.

    Just tried it. The video really improved. No more video lag. BUT....the sound....ugh. It's the same squelching sound and now I can hardly hear the other party. It's like the devs lowered the volume or something. Still needs work.
