    You cannot use any other device's camera for skype on iPad.

    There is a front facing camera for Skype on a 3rd gen iPad.

  • Well there isn't a cable that will let you use your smartphone to skype via your ipad, I believe your 3G pad is the one without cameras, and with the 30 pin connector on bottom? You can get a 30pin to USB camera adapter, and plug in a USB headset. Now it has to be a headset that does not require too much power, I'd suggest a standard 1-earphone one, I haven't tested anything yet just did a LOT of research online about this. I'll be buying this Lightnning usb camera adapter soon for my iphone to see if my logitech g930s will work, I will be amazed if they will, and at the same time be extremely happy, haha. I'll post an actual review when I buy it, and after I use it for a week or so. These USB camera adapters actually let you import photos from iphone to ipad too which I thought was rather amazing. But not from ipad to iphone, I hope they change that.

  • The 3G is relating to data usage, not the iPad being a 3rd generation product. The 3rd generation iPad does have both front and rear cameras, the original '3G' iPad has no cameras.
