  • 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!

      not sure about the 5.99 plan but I installed it on my buddy's tmobile ulocked phone and can confirm the gtalk portion works for the tmobile 19.99 plan

      it does show the number of unread text over the icon on mine. That, and the fact that it makes a sound for the new messages is what puts this one way above the rest for me. Vibrate would be great too though.

      This is a amazing app and this is just a pre-release! Can't wait to see what they do with it when they get it polished up some!!

      has anyone noticed the flicker on the volume on/off of the phone. I mean when you switch the phone to silent(bell with slash and vise versa) I had that happen in the begining when I was testing out the googletalk with my girlfriend

      every time I try to make a skype call or even use the fring test call feature it just puts right back to the dialer and says "reconnecting". Anyone know how to fix this?

      with this application, can you make free calls to landlines and cell phones? Or can you only make calls to other computer-based phones for 100% free?

      Running 1.1.4 and the app runs great but I also had all my SMS chat erased. Even when I received a new SMS it was erased almost immediately. Glad some ppl are not having a prob with it but I guess I'll wait a bit longer to reinstall again.

      this might be the deal breaker for me. to switch from 5.99 to 19.99 just for Gtalk via Edge

      It seems to work 50-50% right now so I think I have to wait for new update.

      Thıs looks lıke a great app. the workıng parts work great

      One annoyıng thıng is that it says voice call over EDGE is not allowed. İs that a application introduced restriction or something that iphone has? I remember making skype calls when ı ınstalled frıng on my SE p990i over GPRS wıth no problems.

      Please let me know ıf anyone else came across this problem

      thanks

      When you are getting out of the program instead of hitting the home button hit the button to take you back to your list of buddies then hit the home button. Then when you get a message it will put a number on your home screen when something comes in. Looks like a minor issue with the programming. Hope this work.
