    So I just got a Stratosphere today since my Incredible took a fall and cracked the screen, and I needed a cheap enough replacement to get me through till quad core 4g phones come out and I can see what they offer, and I have been trying to familiarize myself with it but I have a question. Maybe I missed it in the manual, but I cannot find where it says what I can do with the front facing camera, and since this is my first phone with a front camera, I dont know what I can do with it.

    How do I make video calls, or put that camera to good use?

    Actually liking the phone so far, and figuring this out will help that continue im sure.
    One thing I didnt realize about this phone, it comes with SWYPE out of the box...I really like that and wish more phones would too. Does anybody else like SWYPE?

    i "think" when your about to take pics with the camera you go into the camera settings and switch to front (i cant tell you right now because my phone is broken atm)

    download apps like skype and (google talk?) they let you do video calls

    i dont really care for swype i bought this phone because of the keyboard and well my favorite phone was the epic and i was pretty down when i had to give my epic back and plus my state finally got 4G

    Well for one thing you can take pretty pictures of yourself and see what's behind you. Just like some sort of secret agent!!!

    For some reason, this doesn't have the latest gapps, so no video calling through Google Talk. Haven't tried it with Skype yet.

    Man, I can't wait for CM7/9 to get to this thing!

    i was reading on the xda forums and its confimed download the skype that is called "skype" do not download the one that is called "skype mobile on verizon" that one dont work with the front camera

    (on the right side of the phone when your in the camera app there is a pic of a camera with 2 arrows click that and that will switch the cameras
