  • 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!

      Mine worked the first time after I installed, then I exited the app and now it closes itself before boot up. Any ideas?

      The program is working sweet. But... this is working also on EDGE or exclusively on WIFI? Also, how much traffic the application generates on EDGE?

      now now ... Well, once you have registered with fring, go to the Communities icon at the bottom (click the icon)

      You should see Communities Setup.
      Click the MSN Messenger

      You will see MSN Messenger Setup
      Enter your msn ID - i.e. [email protected]
      Enter your passwd

      Then select Subscribe.

      It will connect.

      Then select the Buddy List to see your buddies or contacts ....


      Let me know if you need more details?

      I was using it with EDGE today, no issues.

      Traffic, not sure but I'm sure it probes every 5 seconds or so & then receives small data when someone sends you a message or comes on line ...but I don't care as I have unlimitted data usage.

      if you wait a bit skype eventually does subscribe..

      so does this allow all the perks of yahoo or aim or msn where you can do voice chatting through there? for instance would a buddy on msn be able to "call my computer (my iphone)" and then voice chat like that?
