  • 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!

      it would be nice if they added a conect/disconect per service button, cause if i want to call using SIP, i dont want to wait for all my msn contacts to load :P

      also, i cant use skype, the whell spins forever.

      I have installed this on 2 iphones today and on both of them all the SMS text messages are gone, erased, POOF.

      A poster above noted this too so just be aware.

      I don't really care so I'm not going to uninstall, but if you value your SMS text you may want to wait for a more stable version.

      That being said I LOVE THIS APP!! Using it for gtext and Skype and for a pre-release its the cat's meow! Hope they get the file tranfer working that would rock.

      Running 1.14 on both phones with ATT service.

      One broke with Pwnage, the other ZiPhone

      It's quite unstable, but concept is excellent.
      Used the SIP phone, however no access to dialpad when in-call (SIP).
      SIP call quality is not acceptable (5+ second delay, lots of echo, etc...)

      Still, very decent and looking forward to improvements!

      For all the tmobile people, i dont think this will works with the 5.99 tzone hack since it goes through proxy, i think this app required a real ip address and only a 19.99 plan give u that
