The camera works while using tango or oovoo but with the default camera app when I switch to front facing it says that the app has unexpectedly closed everytime

This is more informational than helpful, but I just opened my camera and took 3 very bad pictures of myself with the front facing camera with no problems. Have you done the usual shut down, pull battery, replace battery and reboot? That usually works when mine is doing something weird, like when it suddenly forgot it had sound capabilities and all of my reminders stopped working and the phone wouldn't ring.

 

It can be a little finicky at times, but at least it isn't boring.

This has happened with me a few times. Here's what to do:

Menu-->Settings-->Applications-->Manage Applications-->Click the "All" tab-->Click "Camera"--> Then click "Clear data"

 

After that you should be good to go, if it happens again down the road repeat this same process. Please mark this as solved if it fixed your issue.
