@srsfiter There is an icon that allows you to switch between speakerphone and headset while you are in a call. It is in the middle and looks like a mobile phone next to a sideways wifi icon. For more help, check out the Skype support site. Thanks for asking, Skype YouTube Community Manager.

@Morwekful The application currently runs on some Samsung Android handsets, but not all. You can find a list of supported handsets in the Android Market. If you're still running Android 2.1 then you may not be able to sign in to Skype. We're working on a solution that will run on more Samsung devices. Thanks for asking, Skype YouTube Community Manager.

I've been able to download and use the App, I can hear okay on it but anytime I try to video chat on it via the contacts it will either try to call mobile and say I don't have enough Skype Credits or it will call the Skype but wont let me use video chat. Please explain a fix or let me know what I am doing wrong. Thanks.

Does the active video call close itself when you try to multitask? I know that on iOS, the active video call closes when you press the home button, but what's the case for Android?

@1jade1girl You can make video calls over 3g. As long as you have an unlimited data plan, you shouldn’t incur any extra data charges for using Skype on your mobile phone. If your phone has a data limit, then please speak to your mobile operator for full details. Thanks for asking, Skype YouTube Community Manager.

Просто и по существу.
Но почему весит более 10МБ?
:(
Ещё жаль, что аппараты с фронтальной камерой дорого стоят.
Пока не по карману.
А там посмотрим будет ли под них 3G достойный!

Let the people who have no front facing cameras use this because they can always stand in front of a mirror or at least show what's in front of them or flip the camera manually.
