    Need help with an app issue.

    I purchased the Ascend2 a few days ago because I wanted a phone that would be able to use Skype for times when I had to be away from the home computer ( downstairs) so I would not miss my husband's calls on Skype. My husband is deployed and we use this app to communicate. I was told at the store that this phone was capable of Skype and I had no problems downloading the app and it works with just voice chat but not video. The salesperson told me that it would work with the video app you just had to turn the phone around to use the camera, I cannot figure out how this works and if I need a different version of Skype?
    The second problem is if I can only use audio chat I can live with that (even though I bought this phone based on the salesperson' s pitch on the video chat, she even demonstrated how to hold the phone to video chat) but I cannot live with not being able to get audio notifications when my husband comes online. All I can find is the vibrate notification and this does not work well at 3am, when I am relying on my new phone to notify me he is online. He likes for me to call him if I hear him go online at this time, otherwise he doesn't want to disturb me if I am sleeping good. (To me missing any chance to talk with him is horrible!!)
    Any help would be appreciated and I feel really "stupid" for having to ask these questions but I could not find the answers anywhere.

    Hopefully someone can chime in on this. I know certain video chat apps will let you use the main camera, but I don't remember Skype being one of them. Please feel free to enter our contest for the flashed Evo 3D. This is a premium phone that has all the capabilities you need.

    I'd search around for more information, but the ISP that Ft Benning uses for their guest lodging blocks any searches for Skype or pages that are primarily dealing with it.

    Good luck.


    EDIT: I can't read this because of the ISP, but here's an article our feed bot just found.

    Skype limits it's compatibility with devices more than most video chat applications I've seen.

    Tango is now supported on PC and Android devices. Assuming he is probably on an MWR computer, he might not be able to install this. In that case let me know.
