    Wait for Skype to either:
    -Add FaceTime support
    -Add Skype video call support for iPhone 4.

    I don't know if that will ever happen or has happened.

    fring actually updated their app and it has their own "facetime"
    only works with fring. and its actually not bad at all.

    ALSO, cydia just released a new app called imovicha
    it allows you to use your iphone 4 with a desktop

    Yeah thanks. I figured it must have a website, so I set it up a couple of hours ago.

    This apps works. The video is a little choppy and the overal quality is ok. It gives you the options to switch to the back and the front camera.
    It also has the ability to receive 2 way video, or just one. Phone&PC or just PC-Phone and vice versa.
    One last major thing I like about this app is that it lets you use the mic and speaker, so you can talk.
    Untill skype gets updated I second this app also
