    All I get is "call terminated" when I pick up and the connection is established. Tried initiating the video call from both ends (PC and EVO) with the same result. anyone?

    have not tried on 4G yet since it;s dead at home (have it at the office and couple of streets down from my house - maybe I'll take a walk tonight?)

    -when initiating the call from the PC it rings on the phone and I only get "call terminated" when I pick it up on the EVO
    - when initiating the call from the EVO it rings once and it hangs up (does not ring on the PC and I cannot answer it)

    doing a restart of the EVO right now

    UPDATE 2:

    alright, a power off and on of the EVO did it.

    Did a 3g Skype call (over Fring) about an hour ago. No hiccups worked pretty good. Was having problems when I first set it up though (logging into fring and skype accounts weren't working)

    being on 3g or 4g isnt your problem. something isnt being done right

    alright, cool. at least I know it works on 3G

    I don't know what could be wrong. it's not rocket science...sign in and press the video call button on the person you want to call. am I missing something?

    its kinda confusing at first because if your running skype on the PC you have to make sure you have everyone added as a friend, there is a small request window at the bottom right corner when your first adding people that confirm your friendship... you or they wont show up until that is set on frings end which took me awhile to figure out (i got the person is busy message until i realized i never confirmed there friendship).... after that it works great!

    I saw it in a video I saw being done. But I just can't figure out how. I'm using Skype on fringe. maybe it can't be done with this program. Anybody know? TIA

    Ok, I got connected to PC and my friend and I could see each other but I cannot hear anything from my phone but he could hear me on his PC, what's wrong? Also, is this only for phone to PC or PC to phone, but no Phone to Phone?

    have no idea what is wrong in your scenario. sorry.

    about the phone-to-phone video calling I'm guessing it is not possible yet until other devices come out with a front facing camera (I guess video calling was not made for the back facing cameras), unless it's EVO-to-EVO

    Can you use the main camera with Skype/fringe?
