  • 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!

      been trying to install the app- but it leaves it in the "uncategorized" section under untitles source. Is the download not working right? Or am I missing something??

      I have fring on my 1.1.2 jailbroken Iphone. My skype account subscribes and everything but when I enter a number and press skype out the program just crashes instead of calling. This continues to happen. I'm wondering if the problem may be that fring isn't known to be compatible with 1.1.2. Please get back to me, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Im having problems when subscribing to skype. It hangs for alittle bit then tells me my subscription failed and to re-enter id and password. Which I do then get the same message over and over again. Ive tried different names and passwords but get the same message. If anyone has any advice or if Im doing something wrong please let me know.

      If you added the source right, you will have a fring folder on the Categories list. fring pre-release .9.x is the name of the package.

      I know Im adding the link right because Ive added other sources before fine. It keeps listing in the uncategorized listing. Could it be because im dl on edge? Ive done it with edge on my other apps.

      Actually I got it now I re entered it twice then refreshed. Its still listed in the uncategorized though- weird.

      try respringing. if that doesn't work, clear the fields and force quit, respring. keep trying that, it worked for me.

      tap skype to unsubscribe then tap exit and go back in, it has worked for me several times now.

      i've had to let it sit for awhile but i can't get it to make a call, or my contacts to show up.

      also the re enter info thing can be fixed by unsubscribing and then tapping exit, it's worked for me several times now, i'm going to edit my previous post as well.

      I cant seem to subscribe to skype account. The wheel keeps turning and nothing

      edit: ok I got it to subscribe but when I make a call it brings me right back to the dial pad screen. I guess they have to work out a few bugs to get this to work properly. Oh well, I guess it was too good to be true.

      I am trying to register as a new user for fring but it is just sitting there saying registering after I entered the User ID, Nickname, and password I picked. Any ideas to help me out?

      i got it working, it's great!



      i got a question, if any one can answer?

      does fring work while your phone is resting or locked (or whatever you call it)?

      basically... if somebody sends you an IM does it notify you? or does it only work while you're using your phone?

      I installed and tried it out. Connected fine on wifi, got messages quickly, ect.

      When I turned wifi off, it tried to reconnect. So I'm guessing it doesn't work off edge?

      I received a text so I went to write back, all my text conversations have disappeared, and it wouldn't send what I was writing back.

      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.
