I dont really GET what palring was, but i read the description and thought it MIGHT be something i wanted to try, and heck - its free. Anyways, When i set up the account and then went to the login page, i logged in and all of a sudden it said something like: Palringo runs in the background of your iphone. Since you can not run two applications at one time, when you oopen another application, palring will quit. well, THIS IS WEIRD..i THOUGHT they said NO APP can run in the background!! and if so, then WHY dont we have MMS yet? or other apps?? Also, what will that do to my battery?
