    Finally! I've just tried it for the first time and it's working well! I've been dying for skype (text chat) ever since the app store came out. Use skype for work :)

    Bug!!!

    Very BIG bug in FRING,

    It will not accept mail adress like name.lastname@gmail.com , i mean that it will not accept the dot ".".
    Very annoying for those who have this kind of mail.
    Skype voice is good but with a delay.

    Fring was the first IM client for the iPhone which was less than 1 MB (MobileChat was 3 MB and Apollo was like 4).

    Now it's the only one above 1.5 MB (1.6 if you count WM).

    So how long does this keep you signed in when it isn't running?

    Shuts off right when you hit the home button. Doesn't keep you on.

    international calls with VoIP

    Does that mean the phone could be used for free international calls when using VoIP through Fring? :confused:

    Wait so you mean to tell me it is against TOS to tether your laptop to your iPhone but it is not against TOS to provide other ways to use the phone for voice calls? If this stays in place I see AT&T complaining about this....

    I just bought a blackberry yesterday because I figured this would never make the app store. This was the only app I was excited about because I use skype but hate being tied to my computer.

    GOOD DEAL, I might just go buy the iphone. I wonder if it will work if i do not tie it to an AT&T account.

    I could care less about the wireless plan I just want the phone without a contract and be able to do VOIP :)

    What arn said. Don't forget. SMS texting is unlimited through the IM applications.

    This is about the same.

    Hey is there a way to test out the voice quality without having to buy like VoIP Minuets? I am a total Noob to VoIP but would like to know?
