    I use skype to but it doesn't pick up the camera on the prevail so you cant video chat. Thats why i also installed yahoo messanger with the video plugin from play store so i could vid chat with my family.

    You might be able to unzip the Skype app on your PC for a webcam fix

    Lol right have to flip it around constantly. Or a hardware mod, add a camera next to the speaker.

    Why not just tether to your PC and Skype?

    Too many security holes inside of video chat programs that are free to user....
