  • 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!

      This is such a amazing app! So does Im work with edge? Cant try it because my signal sucks in my house. works fine with wifi though! Just one problem when I try to sign up for aim it doesnt let me put any spaces in. my aim username has spaces in it. But there is no spacebar. Whats going on? Also a couple more updates and this will be one solid program I wouldnt mind paying for.

      ^i was thinking of the same thing last night. i hate paying for software and this is something i would have paid for. i know this is going to sound stupid but is ur wifi on when ur trying to open it? cuz yesterday my wifi was on and i forgot to select the network i wanted to use when i was at a coffee shop. anyways fring was constantly crashing. it stayed stuck at the connection page. i couldnt get out of anything. so i had to turn off the phone and start all over.

      Okay this question has been asked alot throughout the thread and i also have the same question:

      If I create a SkypePro account for $3/month, will I be able to make and receive calls to any landline/cellphone when I'm connected to wi-fi? (On the iPhone obviously)

      Thank ALOT. If this is possible, this would be the best APP out there.

      I upgraded to skype pro and was able to make and receive calls to landline and cellphones. There was is little delay but the sound quality is quite good.

      That being said I did uninstall the program after it wiped all my sms messages for the third time (some before I even got a chance to read them) So I have uninstalled and am waiting impatiently for the next release of this awesome app.

      Fring seems to establish a connection with a fring server and everything is done via that server.
      It does not "talk" directly to Skype, MSN, your SIP server .....
      Their server is a gateway for the whatever service you want to use.

      Fring is a nice app but I still want to see a "native" SIP client that can talk directly with my SIP service provider without intermediaries.

      OK, I got this to make literally 2 CALLS over skype. I've tried to make atleast 300-600 calls and it just acts like it's ringing and it doesn't go through. I made one call just fine to my girlfriend's house, one call to myself and that was it. I try and try over and over and now it just won't work.

      works pretty well. I just wish there were more labeling when looking at the buddy list area. It's pretty fast loading too It would be great if this could also work on EDGE

      Wow! I'm impressed so far - but I have a few questions.

      Are you able to call people who don't have Fring?

      Can I send text messages? How do I set that up? I have an MSN account...
