    I downloaded Fring, and signed into my skype account on my iphone 3G(which took forever by the way). When I try to make a call it starts to connect but then an error message comes up saying "call terminated" before I can get through. The skype test call is the only call that works but of course that doesn't do me much good. Skype works just fine on my mac and I can connect to anyone--it would be cool to get it to work through fring on my iphone.

    I have the skype unlimited monthly plan and I thought that would work but do I have to sign up for some special type of skype account for this?

    I had the same problem until a pre-pended a +1 before the US area code.

    I'm having the exact same issue, I have a skype out account as well as a free SIP account and I have the +1 appended but it still says call terminated. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Not just 15555555555 but +15555555555. Works for me with Skype out.

    I just tried in the UK and for some reason +44207... didn't work (call terminated immediately) but 0044207... worked fine.

    just a note that i overlooked before i got my skypeout to work:

    my skypeout numbers on my mac are formatted as (555) 123-4567 and i was simply appending a +1 at the beginning. i had to remove all of the extra formatting and format it EXACTLY like this: +15551234567

    This is odd, the skype application on my mac at home automatically adds the prepend but that doesn't seem to be the case with Fring. Did you have to go into your skype account on your computer and manually add it to each number there so that it transferred over when you sign in on your iphone?

    Nevertheless, this worked at least!

    besides the format, maybe you cannot dial numbers immediately, have to wait for a while to get skype work, about 2-3 mins, that's what I found.

    Also the voice quality is not as good as on computers, waiting for updates

    Using Skype with Fring on iPod touch

    There is a bug that prevents normal calling. The workaround is to add 0111 to the phone number you want to call.

    011 is for international dialing and 1 is the country code for US.

    So remember, 011 + 1 + ten digit phone number
