  • 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!

      I am able to download fring by installer app but when I get to "installing package" my iphone simply flashes back to the springboard and fring doesn't install. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am running 1.1.3 with modem firmware 04.02.13_G and bootloader version 4.6_M3S2.
      Thanks. JP

      Jasonm253, How does yours work over Edge?? when I tried turning my wifi off and just use Edge it said "voice calls on Edge are not supported", or were you just using chat?

      Ya good app but are they updating soon? Still won't work over edge for me and sometimes I have to exit and restart it in order to see my buddy list, or load it up, whatever.

      First of all a word of special thanks to the developers, it's awesome and I love it, I have been wanting this feature for a long long time..... I simply love it....

      Just a few things which I observed while testing...
      1. Sometimes I could not hear anything when I made or receive calls using skype but the other party could hear me very clearly... May be a sype issue at times.
      2. I would also love to have a speaker phone option as well
      3. If I add both Yahoo and Skpe as the communities, it mixes the list of contacts into one buddy list, which makes it hard to identify contacts from Yahoo and skype. Maybe some kind of differentiation would really help.

      Overall great work for a beta version, wish you all the best and hope to see more and more from you guys.

      Hi guys,

      I have an issue with my fring and skype... every time that I log in into the skype with fring I didn't see all my contacts, I read in the forum of Fring that this happen because Fring can not display the contacts of skype that have a question mark ( you can see it in a computer, not in the Fring application). I think that I need exchange contact information with these contact, in other words I need log in into the skype in my computer and also my contact that have the question mark in order to exchange the contact information.

      I wonder If anyone have this issue and if this is the case of the issue...

      Thanks in advance
