    I just downloaded the app from the market but the video didn't work. I could hear fine but just got a black screen for the video. Is there a working apk for tbolt? Does any other app allow video calling or is the front camera completely useless?

    Did the other person's phone have a front facing camera? I know a while ago there was a version of skype where the video all did work, so I assume it should still work.

    I was trying to do it between my phone and a pc. Yup, they had a camera and could see themselves on their screen. My phone, meanwhile, I couldn't see them or me. You don't have that working apk do you?

    I'd say clear the app data, maybe uninstall and reinstall Skype. video calling works fine for me with the app downloaded straight from the market.

    I am running a droidtheory rom. Wonder if that could have anything to do with it?

    I installed skype on my wife's T-Bolt and my T-Bolt a while back.
    The video worked fine both ways but the sound was kinda goofy.

    I never played with it enough to get the sound to work well.

    I did call skype on my PC and the video worked there too.
