    Hi,

    I have the Toshiba Thrive and I can't get Skype to do video calls. The screen just goes blank and I usually have to reboot.

    Anyway aroudn this? Does anyone else have the same issue?

    Thanks

    Skype have not been video calling on wifi only tablets yet, i have read many different forms an websites and tried many different versions of Skype and all i can do is text. Just like everyone else, you will just have to be patient for a working version.

    I have used skype in mines (galaxy tab 10.1) worked fine with voice calling. Have not tried video yet.

    I also have the same problem. I can get audio on Skype calls, but no video. Additionally, the screen goes black as soon as the audio connects. There seems to be no way out except to hard reboot. A total pain! Has anyone talked to Toshiba about it?

    I love my Toshiba Thrive, but still waiting for "sleep" glitch fix although I have not experienced it of late.
    I too await the remedy for the Video chat in Skype.
    When I try to register in Tango for chat...it wants a phone # to IM verification. VM doesn't give one with "Hotspot". Anyone else get it to work?
    SMS (texting) not emailing w/o being in network like Skype, on tablet. Suggest good app for that?
    Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

    Skype for Android only supports about 4 models (for video). Check out at their web site which ones.

    Skype video not approved on this unit yet. However, the screen going blank when a call is recevied is due to the Automatic Screen Brightness feature. If you hold you thumb over the screen brightness sensor (faint blue dot about 1.5 inches to the right of the WiFi LED), the system will turn the screen back on. Skype must be having an issue with the sensor.
