    Is there any way to get video using the Iphone 3GS updated to 4.1 os and skype.

    I know the rear facing camera thing, but wondering if I could get a video feed of the person I am calling while on skype.

    Will the facetime app work for this or is there something else I can get/need?

    Skype with video works with the 3GS and you can also use Tango which works on WiFi and 3G.

    So do I need any special software or just the skype software. FYI, I haven't actually tried to skype with someone I know just yet :(

    Nope. Skype will do it. I have a 3GS and the video works. I just need to turn it around so the other person can see me. But then I cannot see them.... that's the problem with only one camera on it.
