  • Fring it. Fring it Good. VOIP on the iPhone
    Well the folks at fring have done it. You can now fring your iPhone. What does fring mean? I have no idea but it sure does sound cool . . .

    What exactly is fring? It is a mobile voip / im native app that allows you to talk to all your friends and enemies for free over wifi. Included are all the major im clients including fring, Skype, MSN, Google Talk, ICQ, Twitter, Yahoo, and AIM. Oh and best of all. This is free.

    You can get their pre release now by adding their source, http://fring.com/iphone.xml to Installer and then looking for it in the "fring" category.

    Any of your touchers have a microphone? Post if Fring works on your iTouch!

      Same problem here. I'll wait for another release. It also has problem connecting to AIM via Edge but not WiFi. Gtalk didn't have the same restriction.

      I restarted, and sent a text just fine, although all my convo's are still gone.

      I'll use it again when there's a less-buggy update.

      I'm on 1.1.3 unlocked/jailbroken w/ziphone.
      T-mobile, EDGE w/t-zones hack.
      yeah, Ihad the same problem too. Fring fragged my fone.

      Please help us...
      Just keep trying it.. it will go through...

      Worked fine for me on my iPhone.
      No problems with SMS messages being deleted.
      Skype calls OK.
      SIP calls ok, during the first few seconds of the call the other party cant hear my voice, but then everythig is OK.
      Had problems subscribing to Skype but after a few tries everything went throught OK.

      One suggestion: It would be nice to be able to disable Skype or MSN etc and be able to loginto them again without having to Subscribe again.
      This would be useful when I'm using my PC and want to make a SIP call (when Fring logs me in to MSN I get logged out on my PC).

      Probably one of the most usefull apps on the iPhone at the moment for me.

      how can one place a call to a landline or cell phone using this app. Skype only lets calls go through to other skype users correct?

      Wow, what liars... Directly from fring.com
      first ever mobile
      VoIP app for
      iPhone users
      I guess they didn't do their homework. I wish they could make an ipod touch version to work with touchmods mic. Because Sip-Voip lacks the communication from other chat clients.

      u know what. i have vonage and its VOIP. it would be sweet if i can make a call using that number over wifi on my iphone. anyway to make it happen with this app? sorry if this is hijacking the thread or anything, but since we are on the topic of VOIP. that would be sick.
