    Default Skype video calls

    Maybe this is silly, but does Skype video calling work on the Verizon iPhone? I thought is was only FaceTime.

    Thanks.

    I skyped with my neighbor and he was on a PC. The picture of me was better then the one I saw of him. He couldn't believe I was on my phone.

    Plus, FaceTime is iOS or Mac only. So if you want to speak to a PC person via video Skype is the nly way.

    Yahoo messenger and Tango also do video calling over 3G.
