    I don't know if I'm the only one having this problem, but I downloaded every possible video chat app that I could to see if I can fix my front facing camera from being upside down and it still its the same way on every app, can anybody help me fix it? It would mean a lot to me thanx.

    Try turning your phone 180 degrees.

    Right but when other people see me through their phones I'm upside down, that's crazy, video chat is one of the main reason I got this phone, and I can't fix it.

    This is the first phone I've heard of where rotating it to the other landscape position evidently doesn't solve it, according to comments here, so I got nothing.

    odds are its an inverted camera (Mounted upside down) ZTE is good for this, they did it with the screen on the warp1. And then fixed it in the software, odds are its the same deal here with the camera. And that is why software isn't fixing it.

    I am having the same issue on my Warp Sequent. I got it specifically because I'm moving away from my fiancee and son to set up in another state, and would sincerely like to know if there are any developments about this. I have posted in the skype community about this as well, and there seems to be no one with an answer to how to fix it.

    Have any of you resolved this? Also, could you please reply with specific instructions? I've tried oovoo, Skype, google hangouts, and some others. It certainly seems to be the phone itself. The thing I don't get, is why can I take a picture just fine with the front facing camera? Maybe it sends the data in reverse? IDK, but my fam can see me fine if I flip it upside down without letting it go sideways first. However they become inverted to me, so not that great of a trade off.

    Any help would be awesome. Keep in mind I'm somewhat savvy, but still need some step by step dictation, if you will. Thank you everyone, and thank you kingjay2012 for the original post. It's frustrating..

    Thanks, man... It actually took a while to activate chat on mine and a friend's account, but we got it figured out. Not the best quality, but I can't expect the best I suppose. I wonder if Skype and others might create a patch on their own for this.. Oovoo seems to be the best connection, real time and picture quality of most of the ones I've tried, but it is still upside down lol.

    Again, thanks a lot for your thread, it did help, and I didn't know to use the "talk" application till now. I was hitting up the Google+ application. I appreciate the help
