What's the deal? DId VZW do something to ruffle the feathers of phone manufactures and software makers cause it seems that even thought their service is superior the devices are second rate. Same goes for the app support on popular VZW devices. Skype still doesn't have video chat for a single VZW device with a forward facing camera. Does anyone else find this odd?
Best network, biggest network, most expensive (in some peoples opinion), and the worst video chat rights. It Just doesn't add up. I Although I guess VZW spent a boat load on their 4g rights. I win some you lose some..
Thank you for your inquiry GreenhRobot. Adding to what was stated, Verizon Wireless and Skype are working on this a new service for 4G LTE Smartphones that will enable video calling. I am sorry that we do not have a launch date to share with you at this time. We are continually working to deliver the best possible video calling experience and for official news on when this application will be released, please sign up for email alerts at this link.
EdW thanks for the reply. Leaked Skype w/ video for Thunderbolt has been out and working for months. Just sayin it's kinda odd that a working version of skype video is available to those that are willing to install the none market app but the first string of video enabled devices on the market Skype app not one is a VZW device. Is there any real reason that the biggest wireless network couldn't beat Tmobile or Sprint to the punch? I signed up on your link I'll keep you posted if any good info comes from it.
