fring for your iPhone – it’s a fringing world first!

Update: fring V1.0.4 is now officially available via the app store.

OK. So if you’re one of the first lucky *#@$%&s to get your hands on an iPhone, you just got even luckier. We’ve just made a special pre-release R&D version of fring for your iPhone – a mobile VoIP app publicly available for the iPhone, yep that’s a world-first! :-)

This special pre-release version of fring, developed in conjunction with the Holon Institute of Technology academic research labs is a direct response to iPhone users kicking our behind to get fring for their COOOOOL devices. Part of the objective here (besides getting you all excited with fring for iPhone) is to get feedback prior to release of the full-feature version and create a truly superb user experience for iPhone users. So feel free to let us know what you think (and be as honest as you like – we can take it! :-) )
More info on what you get and how to get it at the fringcubator (fring lab).
it’s fringing iPhone freedom!

    Will it be available in de Offical App Store?

    Well done guys! And awesome to see that it supports the iPhone’s EDGE connection too, and not just WiFi.

    Fring is my killer mobile app, hands down. Keep up the good work!

    Very cool app!

    It would be nice if you could set your AIM and other statuses (available, busy, away) and statusline (‘cooking’, ‘zzzzz’, etc.) within Fring

  10. on 15 Apr 2008 at 4:04 pm 10.luqster said …

    WOOOOHOOOO!! Finally! been using this on my nokia, now finally on the iphone! Thanks a lot!

    but… ;) the feedback..

    -it takes a very long time to log on.

    -also it would be much nicer if you could see your contacts by service.

    -could the msn be turned when you turn the phone so you get the big keyboard?

    -include an options tab, so you can customize the settings

    -enable spyke on gprs/edge, i used it on my nokia and it works

    -GREAT APP!!! Keep updating this! :D


  11. on 15 Apr 2008 at 4:05 pm 11.Klas said …

    Love the app, finally on my newest phone.

    Still one big fring-issue (or just mine): I am not able to set the “beep”-volume to nothing … and with twitter subscribed …


  12. on 15 Apr 2008 at 4:07 pm 12.Tom said …

    Excellent work! I love it! It features a lot(!) of functionality. Especially love the VoIP dial-out options (SIP, Skype & Google Talk)

    Some remarks (because you asked):
    1. I didn’t get dialing to an MSN buddy to work… Call was disconnected on answer

    2. When the phone is in “stand-by” I don’t get notified of incoming audio call (tested with Google Talk audio call)

    And of course there’s a whole lot of other things to improve. Mail me if you need a list.

    Keep up the good work!

    Congrats guys, this is really awesome. I have a Nokia E61i and Fring is great on it.
    That’s THE most awesome and needed App on the iphone.


  14. on 15 Apr 2008 at 4:14 pm 14.Thirrouard said …

    Hey guys, I would like to use my SIP provider, as there is many destination I can call for free, but the app ask me to add it on community page, and the page is blank for me… is it a bug on my iPhone, or is it because this page is missing for now and will be added later?

    very annoying: twitter-notification-sound stops ipod playing music.

    2 – Speakerphone
    3 – Jabber/XMPP support besides GTalk (ie: OpenFire)

    Great work so far!

    Working for me on my ipod Touch 1.1.4 ! Well done
    (tested : skype, SIP, MSN and twitter, all working !)



  33. on 15 Apr 2008 at 6:14 pm 33.Dirk said …

    Installed it and works well. I used it for Skype and it worked out of the box. Very impressed. There is a bit of delay on the call but sound quality is good.

    Also Skype chat seems to work well. There is a minor bug in that the text in the ‘type’ window scrolls outside the ‘type’ area by a few pixels.

    For the rest I can’t wait to use this app. Should be one of the killer apps for the iPhone, without doubt.

    Great app, thanks guys:)
    Keep up the great work


  37. on 15 Apr 2008 at 6:26 pm 37.alex said …

    just installed it on my ipod touch, only bug I’ve found till now is that the input field in the chat window is just a black bar instead of the nice rounded input field.

    even skype support (just contact loading) works better then in the s60 3rd version.

    and btw. I can’t post in the forums, for some reason I’m not allowed to, but I can log-in with my username and password.


  38. on 15 Apr 2008 at 6:53 pm 38.Alan said …

    Clearly there’s always something wrong, and…….
    Please, please, PLEASE! Use standard controls and behaviors! I mean, standard font sizes in buttons, no animations when clicking the bottom row buttons (they’re fine, but are overused), no splash screen.

    Those are my complains, but again, I’m very impressed!



  39. on 15 Apr 2008 at 6:58 pm 39.carlos said …

    Excellent! A couple of “mini-bugs” to report:

    1) It does not remember the skype user, it is a pain to have to reenter them again and to wait for the buddy list to be downloaded (and then sometimes it does not download the complete list). Please cache the buddy list, and also please have an update option (since the buddies that are online are not always kept up to date).

    2) Audio through the headset does not work for me on my iphone.

    Again: thank you for this wonderful application and I hope the bugs will be ironed out in the next version. GOOD JOB!!!


  40. on 15 Apr 2008 at 7:16 pm 40.Nick said …

    Skypeout doesn’t seem to be working for me. It tries to dial and then force quits.


  41. on 15 Apr 2008 at 7:19 pm 41.robert said …

    it would be good if you had a bit more connection features for sip (stun servers, etc.)… for example fring doesn’t seem to work with sipgate.de, which is something probably not sipgate-specific but rather a lack of features or a configuration error on my part.

    other than that, i don’t get buddy names for most of my icq buddies. that should be fixed, as well as an option to rename buddies to their real name (either automatic (like msn/icq/aim database) or manually)…

    oh yeah, and i’d like a feature to have multiple accounts of one service and being able to disconnect and reconnect without having to retype my password.

    thanks for the great app, those are just some beta bugs


  42. on 15 Apr 2008 at 7:20 pm 42.Leandro said …

    Does Fring receive calls? I mean SIP calls.

    I’m trying and no luck.

    Also would be good if we can see the dialpad when in a call, specially for use on voicemail boxes or sites that requires the use of key input.

    Awesome work, guys!


  43. on 15 Apr 2008 at 7:22 pm 43.Nightowler said …

    It shows fring pre-release 0.978 on installer? what gives?


  44. on 15 Apr 2008 at 7:22 pm 44.robert said …

    umm… the ability to add buddies from other services, or call buddies not on your contact list by just typing the screen name at the dialer (if possible due to service restrictions)


  45. on 15 Apr 2008 at 7:32 pm 45.Shane Conder said …

    Are incoming SIP calls supposed to work? Or is it just for outbound calls?

    Looks great, so far. Would love to see background functionality (with SIP in) on this version before it’s all closed down on put up through iTunes where background apps aren’t allowed.



  46. on 15 Apr 2008 at 7:40 pm 46.Fabrizio said …

    Happy that you have released a version for iPhone.
    There are two things that I lack is the ability to change the settings once those initial facts and then, perhaps it is a bug, the fact that when you receive a message, only sounds and not vibrates With the result that if you have the phone in the pocket hardly hear …


  47. on 15 Apr 2008 at 7:46 pm 47.Adam said …

    Great work. I’ve used it with Skype and it’s worked great. I’m presently working on getting a SIP account to test with.

    Speaker-phone is a feature I’d like to see.


  48. on 15 Apr 2008 at 8:01 pm 48.Jeremy said …

    Wow, AMAZING app! Only complaint is that I can’t tell my fring friends apart from my Google Talk friends if they use the same name… how about changing the logos depending on the “community” or source?

    Testing on an iPod Touch here, and I have two problems.

    First off chat screens bottom seems messed up (just a black line instead of a text bubble)

    Second of no sound notifications with the iPod Touch.

    Finally a bit of feedback, I’d like the ability to just skip the call part when I click a buddy (especially if I don’t have a number listed for him) since a lot of the time I’m only using AIM.

    Thanks, so far so good.

    Well done !
    The only remark:
    it seems that all MSN, SKYPE, AOL (etc) connections are passing THRU your servers and are not direct connections.

    So everyone is giving YOU their passwords without even being informed ..

    Am I wrong perhaps?


  58. on 15 Apr 2008 at 9:58 pm 58.Benno said …

    How can i change buddy names… otherwise that would be a nice thing for the next version. Also the ability to dail numbers from my iphone-contactlist would be nice. And some customize settings, like rintone on/off, or vibrate on/off.

    Sip works great. Strange thing: de dail-tone doesn’t stop when your caller pics up the phone, but stops when he starts talking…. LOL

    Only thing missing now is Bluetooth support, for VoIP :)

  69. on 15 Apr 2008 at 11:19 pm 69.Jason said …


    -Give me an option to turn off that crazy annoying pinging sound for an incoming chat. Subscribing to twitter has that thing going off constantly. It makes me stabbity.

    -So ’subscribing’ to my AIM account kicks me off my AIM chat client on my PC (part of AIM not allowing concurrent client connections). SO I try and turn off AIM on fring and all I can do is unsubscribe. to reconnect I have to resubscribe and retype in my login. Of course, even though I’m unsubscribed my AIM contacts show up as offline. This is sorta FAIL.

    -Where’s the options tab?

    -Needs contact groups, or at least a way to group them by service. And to not show offline contacts. this all in one big list is bad.

    -The little fring ad that showed up in a GTalk message to a friend is sorta annoying. He said it only showed up once, but still. Not sure I really like that.

    This app shows potential, but way too many little annoyances at this point for it to be useful to me.

    It would be HUGELY helpful to have an indicator in the buddy list showing whether each buddy is voice capable or not. This should be based off of the metadata provided by the service (i.e., ping GTalk for user ‘foobar’ to see if ‘foobar’ is set up to handle VOIP or not. Without this, I can see myself trying to VOIP several users who are not able to receive VOIP calls.

    I’m a iPod touch user and a settings page would be very nice. The already suggested “skip contact way” option would be nice. And if you can make the touchmods mic get to work, that would be awesome!

    Keep on the good work and pleeeaase make fring work with iPod touches!

    tnx! great app!

    for me dont work icq chat. i can write and recive messages, but buddy on the otherside see anything.

    on gprs only chat dont work at all (same as i described above) for icq and for google talk too. on wi-fi gtalk worked well.


  86. on 16 Apr 2008 at 1:55 am 86.Evan Light said …

    In addition, if I’m signed on and my phone is sleeping, and I receive an incoming chat, the phone should buzz (and chime if ringer is on).

    Likewise, if I receive a VOIP and the phone is sleeping, the phone should buzz repeatedly and the phone should ring if the ringer is on.


  87. on 16 Apr 2008 at 1:58 am 87.crax said …

    tnx! great app!

    bug with icq i can read messages from buddy, but if i was answer to him he didnt see anything.

    same bug as i described above happens to me for every service (ive tested icq and gtalk) when i am only throught gprs (no edge, no wi-fi).

    hope it will help you! if you want i am offering myself as tester. mail me if you are interested in.

    Hey Guys,

    Anyone else having issues receiving incoming calls on fring on the iphone? If not can anyone suggest how to go about this? I have used voipbuster.com for outgoing and it works fine for outgoing. Then I used freedigits.net for incoming and i get nothing (even though it has worked fine with other VOIP SIP apps on the iphone). I’m using my phone number as my user name, password, and freedigits.net as the proxy. Am I doing anything wrong? Thanks

What we have is a Fring beta on an unsupported platform that works and still needs work. I’m impressed and not impressed at the same time. As a proof of concept it’s pretty neat, although take care not to gloss over the details for that is what makes one of these apps really work. My intent here is to be both balanced and provide some input. It’s also been a long time since there has been much more than a “yawn” in the VoIP arena. [...]

    Great app!

    It did wipe out all my stored SMS messages on both iPhones I installed it on but thats not a big deal to me. It seemed to be unstable them POOF all my stored sms was gone. Happened right away on the first phone I installed it on and after a few hours on the second.

    So if you have SMS messages you dont want to lose back em up before installing this.


  96. on 16 Apr 2008 at 3:57 am 96.m.o.r. said …

    great works guys! everything works great except for logging into skype. spinning wheel never stops (it seemed to take forever) and doesn’t log in so i force quit the app. the next time i launch fring, it says i’m loggeg into skype even though i’m not. so i uncheck skype to unregister. however, whenever i try to log into skype again, i always said i had the wrong username/password. re-installing fring doesn’t help. still shows i’m “logged” at skype even though i’m not and always gave wrong password prompt. but for a beta, truly great work indeed!


  97. on 16 Apr 2008 at 4:06 am 97.Y3k-Bug said …

    First off, THANK YOU for making the first persistent chat app for the iPhone. No more having to deal with chat clients that disconnect when the phone is locked. Thank you so much for that.

    Now, on to the nitty gritty.

    I have no comment on the Skype portion of the program, as I have no desire to use it.

    As for the chat portion, its stable, and works really well. However, there is one thing needed to bring the chat portion to prime time:

    The “Twitter” and “AIM” clients are incapable of making calls. Yet selecting Twitter or an AIM buddy from the Buddy List, I have to THEN choose between “Call” and “Chat” options. This is a simple usability fix.


  98. on 16 Apr 2008 at 4:12 am 98.mazor said …

    Just tried this program on iphone firmware 1.1.2. Registration with my existing fring account was a breeze! Chatting works great, but have had zero success using the voice features. When try calling anyone, it quites to springboard. Also on receiving a call, the unit will ring, but then on answering, the unit will exit back to springboard. Overall reliability though is very very good and chatting via typing has been very satisifying.

    First of all, great effort in making this happening!

    I’m on iPhone 1.0.2 and when subscribed to Skype, many times it just spins and spins and never connects. But the time I got it to connect to Skype, only text works not the actual call. It quits and bounces back to home screen. Any idea whether it’s supposed to work on 1.0.2?


  101. on 16 Apr 2008 at 4:32 am 101.Benny said …

    Thx for your fantastic work! I think the new IM app is much more stable than any other ones. However, there’s still one bug left that some friends’ nickname on my msn list can not be shown. I hope it will be fine in the nearly future. Thx a lot again!


  102. on 16 Apr 2008 at 4:45 am 102.Sam said …

    Thank you again fring, i’ve been using ur product in symbian os and now on Iphone.i’ very happy that this apps do run in the background.

    Here are some improvement:

    1.The system should allow the user to save their username and password for each communities.
    2.User should be able to subscribe and unsubscribe each communites without having to retype the username and password
    3. i’m using iphone 1.1.3. Fring seem to crash from time to time when starting up.
    4. Skype list of friend does not get updated when open fring. (if subscribed)
    5. should use differnt icon for differnt communities. this help distinguise which communities u are talking to.
    6. Fring take very long time to subscribe to the first communities (the server might be busy, not sure)
    7. fring should allow the phone call to be transfer to speaker.
    8. when trying to call friend using skype, there are funning tone in the sound. It might be because of the communication.

    i’ll keep putting on comment when i got to play it more.

    Nice work guy



  103. on 16 Apr 2008 at 4:54 am 103.João said …

    First of all many thanks! I’m much impressed.
    As for the comments first there is the need to subscribe again each time u quit the application. 2- I had twice a problem with the call severely echoeing on skype(even the test call did by the way). 3-You cannot use the loupe feature of iphone to make corrections. And finally the app still feels somewhat unstable, not responding to commands for a while and sometimes lagging the phone with it. But this is a fantastic effort and many people will be very grateful to you. Thank You

  107. on 16 Apr 2008 at 5:37 am 107.Sam said …

    This time is about the “Good to have feature”

    Skypeout feature
    - Be able to display your current credit
    - Display your calling rate
    - Import your iPhone’s phonebook into the dial (seperate button for phonebook browse)
    - the + sign button should be able to let you choose which country you want to call and automatically fill in the country code for you. (most people don’t know the country code)
    - Be able to select your buddies and grab their phone number to make skypeout

    IM Feature
    - Use different Icon for different communites friends. Hard to tell is Skype or MSN user
    - Have personal information button added. This button should be added when user click the buddies. Currently only have Talk and Chat, should add personal info as well. This allow user to know who they are chatting with (hard to tell from nick name)

    - When Fring is running in the background, Sound help alert the user when someone is talking to you. But when user return to the fring it does not tell which user is talking to you. (add icon to the back of the name that tell user that the person is chatting with him/her)

    I’ll post up more after trying more of it feature.


  108. on 16 Apr 2008 at 5:41 am 108.Sam said …


    While making call out using talk or skypeOut, user could not change the volume, this feature should be added. Sound are very soft while using talk or skypeOut.

    Hi guys! This little app is awesome! Finally a working VOIP application for iPhone.
    Now that the core services are up and running, there’s still some minor adjustments to think about.

    - Add support for speaker
    - Let us customize the way buddies are listed and visualized
    - Add support for setting the status of each individual community (away/busy/online/invisible/…)
    - let us configure notification sound and volume
    - add bubble chat (like sms native application) or let us choose between plain, bubble or boxed (ping-pong style and standard)
    - fix issues between ipod playing music and Fring notifying an incoming event.

    What I’m missing the most right now is the total lack of a settings page; having all the contacts listed in one big single list is a little unfriendly, since I can’t tell whether I’m chatting with “Tom” on GTalk or ICQ or MSN… There should at least be a way to group buddies according to their community. But since it’s a pre-release, I’m sure you guys are already working on user configurability.

    I don’t seem to experience the issue where all sms are being deleted when using fring.

    Great work, dudes! That’s THE application for iPhone.

In other words, it does for the iPhone what Skype does for computers. Technically, the service Fring offers is peer-to-peer Mobile VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol), and like Skype it requires that both parties first install the Fring client on their mobile phones. Both devices must also be Jailbroken before Fring can be installed, a multi-step process that voids your Apple (AAPL) warranty (and hasn’t worked for me for several firmware upgrades). [...]

  154. on 16 Apr 2008 at 9:17 pm 154.mazor said …

    Ok, it looks like from all the testing, including a mate of mine who seems to be able to make voice communication with 1.1.3 iphone, that to use Fring in its beta stages, ones must update their iphone to 1.1.3.

    I am on 1.1.2, and fring works stable, but unable to make voice communication.

    The main difference between 1.1.2 and below iphone and 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 iphones is the user rights.

    It seems that firmware 1.1.2 and below, all software is run as Root (admin super user). For firmware 1.1.3, and 1.1.4 in preparation for new official 3rd party applications, has changed the user to Mobile (user).

    Please make exceptions for those using lower firmware iphones please, as there are benefits still from using older firmware.

    I try to Dial out via ’sip’ and ’skypeout’ it works perfect, i small issue, it will not response to ’sip’ incoming call?
    I am using “pfingo” singapore Sip VOIP,any one try this?
    Fring sound quality is much better then “siphon” from sip.free.fr

    Skype not working. Every time I try to make a call it just kicks me out to SpringBoard. I’m on 1.1.3

    Great work, Chat works without any problem. However, Cannot make calls. Application fails and returns to springboad as soon as a call is answered. This happens for MSN, Skpe & test app.
    Iphone version: 1.1.2
    Please leave a comment if Fring works with your iphone with v 1.1.2

    thanks. K

    As somebody told before, user interface could be improved but, hey guys, it’s a beta and it’s cool!
    Gret job, you gave to the iPhone the most missed features!
    Thanks a lot!

  161. on 16 Apr 2008 at 11:12 pm 161.Lori said …

    A few echos of what has been mentioned:

    Buddy list should be coded somehow (colors, groups, something) to differentiate the IM client types

    I wish that the sound alert for a new message would vibrate if sounds are off

  163. on 16 Apr 2008 at 11:29 pm 163.mazor said …

    Haha, .ppeixon, this is not really new news. I own the Nokia N93 that runs S60 3rd edition, and still after many updates, the volume of skype conversations is below that of a stadard telephone call. I fixed the problem bt using a bluetooth headset with the N93. It has an independent louder amplifier circuit, that lets me push up the volume of skype calls manually.

    But.. since Bluetooth headset has not been implemented on the iphone fring, there will be not work arounds for this.



  164. on 16 Apr 2008 at 11:29 pm 164.Vivek said …

    The app is excellent. But a word of caution for all Skype users…i made some test calls using Fring on my iphone and my SkypeOut balance was deducted for making phone calls within USA even though I have SkypePro. So something is terribly wrong or undocumented here on Fring’s side….!!!!!

    Wow. This app looks like it has some incredible potential. I have it installed on an 8gig iPod touch running jailbroken 1.1.4 firmware. I’m having the same issues as everyone else with the iPod touch.

    Chat screen is blank with a black bar across the bottom.
    I can connect calls (with gizmo project for sip & with skype) but no audio either way.

    If you guys could please support the ipod touch in your next release I know there is a very large group who would use it.
    Feature requests include audio through the headphone jack, & integration with the touchmods mic. (visit touchmods.net for details, and to get an idea of how many ipod touch users are out there)
    Thanks for the great product, keep up the good work, and please, include ipod touch support in your next release.

    Hey Guys at Fring,

    Installed yesterday and it’s great. I’m on 1.1.4 and I’ve noticed some positive and some not so positives;):

    -Great Layout and interface
    -Seems stable and reliable
    -Easy to use and quite perceptive
    -Background usage is a great advantage
    -Battery usage not so critical (so far)

    Not so positive:
    -When connecting to Skype, takes forever to validate- on MSN is quite fast (perhaps nothing to do with you anyway)
    -When connected, the Buddy list does not show anything else but the nickname…More info option is important…
    -When connected to skype and switch to another Chat provider (e.g MSN) it shows as connected to both on the list but in reality only one is on.
    -Phonecall quality is pretty good on MSN but minimal on Skype (again maybe not your problem
    -It does not offer to remember usernames and passwords…have to re-type every time
    -After using Fring I have noticed that all my SMS’s vanishes from my iPhone. (I believe this is the most serious issue, I’m sure all other have already been addressed or is being addressed by you guys)

    Anyway, still for the first version, It’s great! I will definetly keep using it!

    Thank you all at Fring

    Thank YOU Fring!!!

    This is the killer app of 2008! Works well with my system 1.1.4. Did not kill sms’s like some people complained.

    Iterface, usablity, stability, connection – all excellent.


    Call quality on Gtalk was not great. Dont think it was network related as the PC was working fine. Did not try most of the others.

    Buddy list – HAS to tell us which app the buddy is from.

    Multiple chats are not really supported well.

    Ability to change visibility, block etc is non existant.

    Otherwise its great! and hey! something is better than nothing – but this app has fantastic potential and i would love to see all of the suggestions passed on here implemented.

    Thanks once again Fring!!!!!

    Update on Fring testing:

    Just tried a SIP provider who is not on your affiliate list – JustVoip and Fring just worked great!! All I had to do was enter username and password and in the proxy section enter the web address of the provider and it worked like a charm!!

    Thanks Fring!!!

    Err.. although it worked well could I add a suggestion? The contacts from the SIP provider were not available – which I did not expect – but I feel it is essential to be able to pick up numbers from my iPhone contacts… or did I miss something?

    Again WOW!! And Thanks Fring!!

    Have been using it for the last five minutes and some feedback based on that.

    First and foremost, great work! Can cancel my IM+ account!

    As many, I would like to have some sort of options menu to set my preferences.Also different screens for different IM systems or different buddy icons to separate between my skype friends and my msn friends.

    And if you could make it possible to dial anyone from my phonebook, that would be great. As i don’t know most the numbers by heart

    If you are in a Skype call, and a GSM call comes in, then you iPhone get’s stuck on the fring loading/connection screen. AND YOU CAN NOT REBOOT the damn’ thing!
    I had to use ZiPhone and go to recovery mode just to get my iPhone rebooted and unstuck!

    SIP can register with my asterisk server, place calls but no voice. I cannot establish RTP session!

    How do you configure it with vyke. This is the best VoIp service I know. But in the SIP settings, there is only a setting for username, password and proxy. Where do I enter the other settings:

    Vyke SIP Settings:
    Display name: Your Username
    SIP/IAX Username: Your Username
    SIP/IAX Password: ***** (Same as your vyke password if confirmed)
    SIP server: sip.vyke.com
    IAX Server: iax.vyke.com
    Port: 5060
    RTP port: 5090
    DTMF: RFC 2833
    Proxy settings: Same as SIP server
    Register server: Leave blank
    Supported codecs: G.729, G.711 (ulaw), gsm

    Hi, I installed just installed the app. Now I won´t miss my nokia at all.
    I tried making skypeout calls, tried the call testing service and could hear but couln’t record.
    Later i tried chatting with my brother (also running fring on an iphone) and text was ok but never got to complete a call. I also tried fring call testing service and worked fine.
    You should add a menu (like the one you get on a normal call… speaker, dialer….. etc). Should be able to control headset volume also, i found it very low.
    Thankx you guys hope you figure out this bugs.

    Great app!


    1. It would be nice if it had the badge (red circle) with the number of text/instant messages on the icon.

    2. It would be nice to have the buddies separated by service.

    3. If the phone is on silent mode, it will not vibrate when receiving a text/instant message.

    4. When text/instant message is received, the person who sent the text/instant message is placed at the top, when you tap on the name, it asks you whether you want to call or chat with the person, it would be nice if it just went straight to the chat option.

    the best iphone app thus far. its what i’ve been waiting for since i got the iphone. I love the fact that its always alerting me even with the screen turned off. Two things though 1) we need to be able to see the email address or nicknames. because we cant always identify the person by the name they use
    2) we need to be able to click on links that will then open in safari

    Hey Guys,
    Great app. I have to agree with Zibri (comment 57). I would prefer that the connections go straight to the servers. For example, I am trying to connect with SIP to my internal asterisk server on a private internal network. Entering the private IP or internal domain does not work as it must connect externally through your servers first… this is not good. For SIP, at least, it would dramatically improve performance on an internal server if it could connect locally. Thanks for all your hard work. I look forward to future versions!

    Congratulations; best application ever for iphone.
    I’ve tried with Ligatel, my SIP provider and i was able to make phone calls; a little bit choppy but i figure out your app and servers acts like a proxy.
    Now, i was not able to receive calls. Even I tried with a local asterisk server and my Fringer dials but not receives incoming calls.
    Also i could notice the SIP information is not stored so i have to re-enter it if the application closes.
    Anyhow, congratulations.

    2. the calls work fine with the skype account but it fails to connect a call with msn buddies.

    3. i would love to use a sip account but im frome israel, and if i want to call with in israel to cell phones it more expensive then wy cell provider (ORANGE)… is there an sip provider that u can recommend??

    your app is awesome.I had been waiting for such a thing for a long time.
    I have a few issues to report, though:
    1. The ringtones are too loud. Please do something about it.
    2. I have many friends who can’t use it because their phones (Sonyericson K810, samsung) can’t receive the application. Quite sad

    Furthermore, I have a question:
    Pardon me if I’m too ignorant but, what do you guys gain from this?

    Great app. Works great. Do I post feedback here? Anyway This is my feedback, I’m on 1.1.4 and have pre-release 0.978:

    - Love the interface, very nice!

    - Call Quality is great!

    – GUI while in a call; its nice but doesnt go with the overall theme of the iPhone.

    - Ability to let it run in the background when you tap the home button on iPhone would be great.

    - Would be good to have GPRS on Skype.

    - Takes ages to get the contact list and sometimes some do not show, fring test call comes up strainght away though.

    - Signing in can be a bit slow at times

    Despite all these its a amazing app!!

    [...] Fring lanzó esta semana una versión para el iPhone de su ya excelente aplicación VoIP y de IM para móviles. Esta es la primera aplicación que dota de VoIP al iPhone via WiFi, claro. Fring es compatible con Skype, MSN, GTalk, ICQ y Yahoo! Fring funciona muy bien en el iPhone gracias al gran trabajo que hizo Apple con el hardware y software que soporta su WiFi, uno de los mejores en el mercado que en este caso te permite elegir una red y conectarte a ella automáticamente la próxima vez. Fring estuvo disponible por un periodo de tiempo para teléfonos Nokia, pero su soporte WiFi era bastante menos sofisticado que el del iPhone, así que Fring tuvo que agregarle muchas funcionalidades.

    Thanks for making this great app for free. I have a few recommendations for improvement:

    1. Colorcode the contactlist on IM-type like IM+

    2. Preference to not show offline contacts

    3. Possibility to send URL and to be able to click on these in chat

    4. Preference on sound events(choice of sounds, sound themes, different sounds for different IM-systems or contacts or contactgroups)

    5. Possibility to inhibit handover to edge in roaming environment

    I have more but these where my most important ones. Please let me know if you like to have more sugestions.

    Kind regards, and thanks for your great work

    Is there any chance for Voice Calls over EDGE ?


  242. on 21 Apr 2008 at 8:12 pm 242.Fernando Lopez said …

    I think this beta version of Fring is a very good aproximation to what VOIP on a Iphone could be. But it lacks in some important functions: (maybe I am asking to much)

    1) Dialpad to use during a call (to mark extensions or use other options)
    2) Phone directory to store (SIP) numbers
    3) Option to dialing making pauses (“,”)
    4) Integration with the default “Contacts” application
    5) Call log (recived, placed, missed calls)
    6) store login and passwords to easely enable or disable accounts without config them again.

    Great app!!! Congrats!!

    Great Idea! Not so good in practice:(
    Yahoo and Google Talk work fine, but Skype…
    is so slow to subscribe ( up to 3 min) ,
    does not show online users ( even though they are only on my laptop)
    does not show all members in the list.
    Would be great to have a call history in Skypeout or access to the phonebook.
    Nice work so far!!!
    looking forward for update.

    A great app.. quite easy to use.
    I would like to see the emails of my contact list buddies, because they frequently change their nicknames, and it’s impossible to keep track, if Fring doesn’t display emails. I would also like to add contacts, just by their emails. Messages seem to get lost before I read them if I get DC, or if I go to my springboard for long. Also doesn’t seem to connect with certain WiFi networks, donno why.. other than that, all is great! :)

    blank the screen when against your ear (like in the original dialer) this would be a considerable health and safety benefit and it would also conserve the battery life while on a call and not let the iphone get too hot whilst on a call.

    hey guys.. thanks for the great app.. must say i was about to swap my iphone with nokia n95 coz of fring.. and now its on iphone.. dunno what to say to ma mate now lol.
    a few features i would like to see in the full version.
    a: sign in/out options for each communication service like msn and yahoo.
    b: clicking on a contact taking you directly to the chat and a more button on the chat status bar for options to call,block unblock send files, contact profiles or more.
    c: contacts grouped by services
    d:i’ll shutup coz m asking for too much now lolll but if a display pic and the ability to change status to away or be right back or busy if a call comes through would be realy appreciated

    Good work so far, but clearly a beta. Many things are missing, I think most is already mentioned here. This version is useless to me because the sound on a call mostly gets messed up, even if I have a quick wifi. Because of this I can’t use it. Look foreward to an update, because this could be the most useful application on iphone. My version 1.1.4

    On business from US for 2 months in Europe with my iPhone and Blackberry. I removed ATT from my iPhone,
    unlocked it via a single click on ZiPhone and inserted
    a cheap £15 T-Mobile chip – NO PROBLEMS and I’m a novice – the on-lines videos gave me confidence.
    Still the iPhone with T-mobile chip would try to download
    email which cost £ each day so I put the chip in my BB
    which has no such problem. I conclude Apple messed up by not having an option to search WIFI before cell towers, or have an option to somehow prevent data
    downloads. Anyway, fring came to the rescue, providing
    SKYPE on my iPhone. Just downloaded following insructions (NO PROBLEMS) and called my wife over SKYPE and it actually worked, although I was walking around and it sometimes missed a word or so, or also when we both talked at once. However when I stood still near a strong WIFI hotspot it seemed much improved but still not the quality we’re used to but enough for me to get by when I can’t access SKYPE on my MacBook. Somehow, the Apple earphones don’t
    work which threw me off as I used them 1st so as not to disturb anyone, and consequently assumed the test call
    didn’t work. However when I went to lunch (leaving the earphones behind) I tried it w/o and presto, the test fring call worked great. Somehow the test Skype call just rings 11 times and quits? Good work, and I plan to use it more and trust some of the bugs will be worked out and the voice quality will improve. Excelent work!

    In case you’re interested, my iPhone is the minimal 4GB with 1.1.4 (4A102) O/S version with 650 photos and 180 songs, 1 video and still 2.1 GB available after downloading fring. By the way, does anyone know how to ssh to my iPhone (ZiPhone) to change file permssions per:
    as my camera can no longer save photos. Either I’ve reached a photo limit or ZiPhone changed the photo directory permissions not allowing photos to be saved.

    FANATASTIC! Finally an all-in-one communication app for iPhone! Fring really is the new killer app. Well done guys! I really think you’ve got the right idea about how to get this all working the way it should.
    My suggestions:
    1. an option to disable the audio notifications or have them so that they do not stop my iPod everytime. I like to listen to music while I chat!
    2. grouping buddies by community/service type would be nice.
    3. Maybe this is a stretch, but having a visual prompt while Fring is hidden or when you’re in another chat, for incoming messages (like native SMS does)would be reeeeeeealy cool.
    Keep up the good work guys! I love the this app!

    Found that when skype out calls are made, the calls are not clear and the vioce gets “cut” during the speech. In fact it happens when i make the Fring Test Call… but doesn’t happen on my Nokia e65 with the same wifi connection…

    and the phone gets too hot when calls are made…

    hopefully there will be a new iphone fring release to fix these….

    A great initiative taken by the fring team to make an application for the iPhone. I am impressed.

    Unfortunately, I am unable to use fring at home. I have a wireless network, but the connectivity is not established when using fring. Either its because my ISP uses proxy, or there is something else. But I have used fring with connections that do not requrire a proxy, and it works fine.So then it should be the proxy.

    It would be great if you guys can include an option where you give your proxy details and get connected to fring.

    Great work guys. I’m running fring on a 1.1.4 jailbroken ipod touch to chat with. Chat works good, but obviously I can’t make audio calls because the touch lacks the same hardware as the iphone (ie internal speaker and mic).

    PLEASE, support the ipod touch (with touchmods mic for audio-in and headphones for audio out) in your next release. I know they are developing a SIP-VOIP program for Ipod Touch, but their program so far is sloppy and has little functionality, no chat, and very limited audio codec support.

    Keep up the good work and support the ipod touch.


  290. on 26 Apr 2008 at 2:35 am 290.shea cardinalli said …

    First off, let me say THANK YOU SO MUCH! for this app!! I would like to comment on what I like and also what bugs (no pun) me.

    1) it would be really nice to have the option to delete buddies off the buddy list. So far, your application is one of the most comprehensive in being able to add buddies, so it seems odd to not have the ability to remove them.

    2) I really like the ability to scroll up during a chat conversation and see previous exchanges between someone you are currently chatting with. It seems basic, but most web IM interfaces leave off this important featuer.

    3) Some way to differentiate between who is able to receive VOIP calls would be nice. I have several friends that use multiple programs ie: skype, AIM etc and it is hard to differentiate which service they are using based on the screen name alone.

    4) I really like the style of the keypad for dialing VOIP out, I like its similarity and size relative to the iphone keypad. One nice touch however would be to incorporate the tones when dialing (as with iphone’s keypad) just for aesthetics.

    5) Finally, I’m not sure if there is a way to do this, but I would be AWESOME if there was a way for you to tap into the iphone’s sensor to shut off the screen when put to your face during a VOIP call. This would save A TON of battery life, and since battery life is a concern when using VOIP apps on mobile devices, I would think you’d find this to be of much benefit.

    Thanks again keep up the good work!

    by the way, fring doesn’t get interrupted when you put the phone to sleep mode, THANK u for this! That enables us to shut off the screen during a VOIP call.

    This is the most amazing program on the iPhone. 100% awesome. Couple of things though … could we get an icon displayed on the right hand side of the buddies list to show which community a buddy is from? Also voice calls when signed in over EDGE/GPRS would be awesome. It would also be great if fring turned the phone on and displayed that messages are waiting in a similar way to SMS. I have an application that displays a message icon next to the clock on my iPhone when I get an SMS. It would be great if fring could do this too and display message icons. Finally … vibrate! Could fring vibrate on receiving a message?

    Great app. I believe all the issues I’ve encountered have been mentioned, but just in case:

    – text input does not expand in chat (aka no line wrap while typing)
    – password timeout/retry/login seems a bit off when attempting
    multiple logins; happy to forward any required logfiles.

    Looking forward to future updates. Well done.

    [...] UPDATE: Just today (4/15) it looks like another VoIP app for the iPhone has emerged called Fring. Fring promises to work with both Skype and SIP accounts, but like SIP-VoIP it’s still young and not entirely perfect.

    I love this iphone application, really great. But the only problem I had is the buddy list seems a bit confusing (e.g. if I have both msn and skyp on, I couldn’t tell who is from which application)

    Otherwise is great!



  309. on 01 May 2008 at 9:44 pm 309.Jelkin said …

    ATTENTION!!! it seems, that the fring-app is responsible,
    that all of my SMSs has been deleted on my iphone… other
    users are telling the same in different forums at the
    moment… this could be a strong bug in the fring-beta!!!

    best regards,

    All my contacts and SMS were deleted while i was using fring and my brother called me (on the phone)…
    Happened to anyone?


  311. on 02 May 2008 at 4:21 am 311.Ram said …

    the phone gets too hot when a voice call is made via fring… this definately needs to be fixed… would be better if the earphones can be used for a fring call… but this is currently not possible…


  312. on 02 May 2008 at 1:57 pm 312.Joe said …

    Great work guys!! I’m so pleased this has arrived! You rock!

    Some suggetions:
    1) volume control should work but doesn’t – and the voume seems to be too quiet when placing a phone call.
    2) earphones/mic should work but don’t
    3) hands free should work but doesn’t
    4) Can’t seem to add new skype buddies – only supports new phone numbers (at least this seems to be buggy if it does support this)
    5) Should be able to make skype out calls from the iPhone’s address book
    6) configurable sounds different events
    7) disable screen when holding phone up to head

    Looking forward to the next release!

    Yes, same happen in my iphone twice since the Fring is installed for a week….all the SMSs in the inbox are gone. Serious bug and stop me go for this beta version.


  314. on 03 May 2008 at 11:57 am 314.Rollo Martins said …

    I was waiting for Skype on iPhone since day one. Great it is finally here! But there are definitely some problems to solve:

    - Voice Quality is sometimes very bad (stuttering transmission)
    - SMS deletion bug (I lost all my SMS twice in the meantime)
    - battery drain: When Fring is active, my battery is empty after 18 hours at the latest, if it is not, my phone lasts for three days.
    - Some calls just seem to end up in Nirwana, they just do not arrive at the adressee’s phone (input and output calls, as far as I can see).



  315. on 03 May 2008 at 3:06 pm 315.Katie said …

    This is really cool! Thanks a lot!

    But, I’ve been having some problems though:
    1. It takes a long time to connect and sometimes, my iphone just freezes in the process.

    2. When my MSN contact sends me messages, I can’t receive any of them.

    some problems with voice quality when using SIP voipstunt.com (I tried with my computer after using fring and quality was ok)
    i can’t add numbers (it tells my that that buddy can’t be found)
    I can’t use the hands free ( the one that comes with the iPhone)
    I would be nice to dial my iPhone contacts
    it would be nice that it could store more than one Sip with configuration and password included
    it would be nice that I could left the application running behind and do other things wile I talk

    But I have to say WoW I was waiting for this app

    Wiped my iPhone’s SMS conversations. Grrrrr. Otherwise, great app, very pleased. Could do with a warning if you leave a Wifi hotspot though, as it keeps trying to work (I think) with EDGE and is presumably using up precious battery life. (I usually stay fringed-in at home and always forget to exit when I leave).

    Got it in an iPod Touch 1.1.4, couple of bugs too, like the line that displays the tapped message keeps black, was able to place a call thru skype only once(quits or force reconnection now)… Are you guys working on a microfone also???

    Very nice program which lacks a few things.

    First of all, why do you have to choose between the chat icon and call icon when youve tapped a friend on your buddy list? I think it would be much greater if you came to the chat view when you tapped a friend, and there from youve got a smaller icon, which when tapped called the the same buddy.

    Tried the call function a couple days ago from Sweden to a friend in Japan with great success. This was via the msn protocol and only one time during the call i wasnt enable to hear what he was saying (probably cuz he got a bad internet connection)

    Another thing that would be great is to be able to see the buddys picture picture, and be able to choose an own picture, change name, see the chosen name in chat view and not the “Me” name. Be able to change notification sound, but the caller sound is something i really like =).

    Mabye see a little window in buddy-list view next into the friends name, that can tell if you have an ongoing conversation or not.

    Another thing is to be able to see the friends email adress in the chat view, so if you have 2 friends called “Martin” you know whos who if you tap the friend.

    And soon enough mabye be able to send and receive files and “webcam-chat” with the upcomming 3g iPhone =)

    Appreciate all your work! Thanks for a very good program!

I exited fring and adjusted the volume and restarted fring now there is no sound on every app on the iphone. Anybody else get this issue?

    Fring is great

    but missing some features like

    * what happened to offline message i receive on my yahoo account after login with fring (I think they are lost now)

    * use iphone sensors to rotate chat window horizontally or vertically

    * i recommend switching off screen lights when during call to save more battery power.

    * there should be an option to mute IM alerts sounds or make it vibrate only or just no alerts !

    that’s it
    thank you guys, its really a great application !


  336. on 09 May 2008 at 10:29 pm 336.User007 said …

    Yes, that’s correct Dan. I have noticed this problem as well, after installing the latest ver. 9.785 and starting Fring, phone has no sound in any app. I had to reboot the phone. I hope they have the next update soon to fix this issue.

    Great Stuff,

    Using it on my Iphone (1.1.2) with Fring (pre-release 0.9785) (only tried Skype to Skype)over a sat internet connection with a 600ms delay. Nearly just as good as my laptop.

    So far only one bug: Iphone sometimes crashes when you close Fringe.

  343. on 11 May 2008 at 5:02 am 343.Zoom said …

    Great idea with great potential! I still have a few problems with the 0.9785 pre-release, which prevents me from using it regularly.

    First, SkypeOut and SIP don’t work. I got connection but voice. Google Talk works though, abeit poorly with intermitten connection. Fring to Fring connection is best.

    Second, there is no sound via the earphones while they are plugged in, which would be a pain for long conversations.

    Overall, this is a new exciting app. Keep perfecting and it will be the killer appp.

    [...] If you are going to replace the previous version of the iPhone, it may be time to plan what to do with the old one. You could give it as a gift to a loved one or keep it as a backup phone. You could jailbreak it and use it as the world’s coolest Skype phone (note: you may soon be able to do this officially soon thanks to the SDK). Or, you could sell it on eBay. There are used iPhones going for around $300 on eBay right now (but probably less once the new version comes out). [...]

    It is simply great! But, what is missing, is the capability of having a dial pad when making a phone call.. in case we go to a PBX or a mailbox. Also, with my SIP provider, I need to dial 550 to get dial tone and after dial my enterprise’s extension numbers.
    Will Fring have this option?

    [...] iPhone može mnogo viÅ¡e nego Å¡to mislite, potrebno je samo da ga oslobodite okova koje mu je stavio Apple. Hackeri znaju već odavno da se iPhone može nadograditi i koristiti sa mnogim korisnim aplikacijama. Apple Chef Steve Jobs nije do sada dopuÅ¡tao koriÅ¡tenje mnogih Open Source aplikacija koje su programeri razvili specijalno za iPhone, no, situacija bi se mogla promijeniti jer Apple želi od lipnja 2008. ponuditi korisnicima putem iTunes-Store tzv. autorizirani software za nadogradnju popularnog mobitela. Pitanje je samo, zaÅ¡to bi Apple-u plaćali software ako Internetom kolaju besplatni programi za nadogradnju popularnog iPhonea kojega možete zatim sa tim besplatnim aplikacijama pretvoriti u digitalnu kameru, uredjaj za diktiranje ili za besplatno telefoniranje putem Skypea. Za one koji mnogo putuju zanimljiva je i aplikacija pod nazivom iPhone Currency Converter koja vam omogućava pretvorbu raznih valuta, ili možda program pod nazivom Geopedia. Aplikacija koja odredjuje geo-poziciju vaÅ¡eg iPhonea i snabdijeva vas korisnim informacijama iz Wikipedia-je za to područje. Da bi ste koristili nove željene aplikacije na vaÅ¡em iPhoneu morate kao prvo omogućiti instalaciju novih aplikacija putem tzv. Jailbreak-a (engl. bijeg iz zatvora, okova) odnosno otključati ga. Svi oni koji su skeptični ili se boje da bi prilikom aktualiziranja iPhone mogao ostati zaključan, ne trebaju se bojati, prema riječima Jonathana Zdziarskog, autora poznate knjige “iPhone – Open Application Development” Iphone je moguće i putem iTunes-Softwarea vratiti u prvobitno stanje. Za gledanje potreban vam je Flash Player.   [...]

    Very positive as reviewed on my blog http://iphone-tips-tricks.blogspot.com/2008/04/iphone-tips-iphone-killer-app-sip-voip.html.
    What I like to see in Fring is a Jabber/XMPP client where you can point to a Jabber/XMPP server like openfire, rather than stick with the Google Talk server. Now I have to run something like iChabber.

    i downloaded it today for my iphone.
    at first i was excited then i noticed some bugs.
    i don’t know if they are program bug or something i do wrong since i could only try this alone…

    first thing was about me seding messages to ppl i could see online… i could never get an answer back…
    it looked strange to me and after few tries noticing it not working i tried to log in with messenger on a pc at home…
    the fact is that the contacts i could see online there, were a lot different of the ones i could see on frinq…
    on fring i could see about 3-4 contact online while on pc i could see at least 15 contact not busy…
    after that i realized that, the fact ppl were not answering me could have been possible since there wasn’t also corrispondence with the “online” ppl.

    Supported EDGE/GPRS calls would be cool. Either when GPRS is to slow, but for “SIGNAL CALLS” it it ok. You have a “normal tele number” on your mobile phone via VoIP. You see via CALLERID that a friend is calling on your “normal numer (German: Festnetz)”. SO you can call back via normale MOBILE FONE-FLAT.

    SO EDGE/GPRS support will be cool. Option: Enable EDGE/GPRS Calls…

  374. on 27 May 2008 at 9:48 pm 374.James said …

    Hi I actually tried skype not for the phone service and all but for the chatting. The only problem I have with it is, whenever I receive a message sure it’ll ring but it won’t vibrate. Also It would be nice if there’s an option to turn on or off the ring when you receive a message other than toggling with the volume button which is kind of annoying. Also for AIM whenever a buddy who is not on my buddy list sends me a message, I will not be able to receive it on fring and fring will not notify me of a new message from someone not on my buddylist. so a general over view the fixes I’d like to point out in hope for

    -options to enable/disable ring, vibrate, notification and etc.
    -people not on the buddylist to be able to send you a message on the fring program (which apparently I have tested and does not work)
    -Also the ability to edit (add/delete/rename/etc.) buddies for any account like AIM instead of just and only fring accounts

    I hope these issues of mine can be issued and I hope I’m not the only one who wants these minor issues to be fixed. But generally for a start, well done.

    hello, writting from my iPhone. Great app you made but maybe you should check the next things:

    1. A buddy info panel or at least display his mail address to easy recognize him when change nickname

    2. Arrange active conversations, sometimes I need to search my buddy from the list when I have a conversation with him already, and besides, if he changes his nickname, its quite confusing.

    3. Better call support in MSN and GTalk, so far ir’s been futile my attemps.

    I installed this on my iPod Touch and it ran, connected and logged in fine to Gtalk, MSN, Yahoo and AIM. BUT, i wasn’t able to view any msgs ppl said they sent me nor was i able to send any to my contacts. tapping a contact would option a screen with 2 options – Call and Chat. Tapping chat would open a blank screen that does nothing nevermind how many times u tap, flick, shake or pinch the screen :s I’ve got a modded Touch w/ firmware 1.1.4 btw.

    First, I would to like send my deepest and warmest regards to all technical stuff who working hard to develop fring communtiy and still, this is really imagine software, very helpful, very friendly, helps you to keep in touch with your family and friend whatever you are, anyway, I use iPhone, which it completely from Nokia N95, I know that you are working hard to improve the functions of fring with iPhone, because with Nokia N95, I can send a file or picture via MSN or Skype, but not with iPhone, also regarding to SIP, from Nokia I can choose from my contact directly instead I have to insert a number on dailer everytime with iPhone, but in general, thanks so much for your efforts, I love you all.

    On a ziphoned 1.1.3.
    First version crashed so badly…all interfaces and buttons inoperative, it was impossible to switch off, I used a tool to reboot and disinstall.
    Instead 0.9786 works. At the beginning it crashed to the springboard few times, now it seems stable and works well with phone skype: it is possible to talk !! Skype account is reloaded automatically ! GREAT

    Great work guys.

    I installed fring via Installer.app on an iNdependence jailbroken iPhone, and have set up my Skype and iChat Communities.
    I successfully made the fring test call, and saw all my Skype and AIM buddies in my buddy list, however on EXITing, the app hanged and then the phone crashed. Needed a hard reset, following which I opened up fring again.

    It appeared to have remembered by Skype and AIM credentials (the tick was there), but the buddy list was empty. I then went through several iterations of unsubscribing and resubscribing before my credentials were accepted, getting the error message ‘Subscription Failed, please re-enter User-ID and Password’. After successfully resubscribing, my buddy lists were incomplete.

    Am sure these are small bugs. In terms of functionality, what I would like to see is

    -identify which community each buddy is from
    -allow access to my iPhone’s contacts/addressbook for dialling out.

    Thanks guys!

    [...] Fring is the only “really” mobile Skype client (except the Windows Mobile version of Skype) to me. And this official Skype Java mobile version is just another similar approach of third party mobile Java IM/VoIP softwares that supporting Skype like EQO, Nimbuzz and so on. The reason is that this official Skype Java mobile client only can transmit TXT chat via wireless data link. It is almost impossible to transmit voice by this mobile client due to the limitation of J2ME application’s performance. Moreover, there is report mentioning that making 20 minutes call per day with the official Skype Java mobile client will use only 1M byte traffic, which is too little for voice. [...]

    This software is great! I’m a first time Fring user and using it on my iPhone.

    I use it with my Skype and MSN accounts. And it’s great to be able to connect with my friends on both Communities but the major problems I have now are:

    1. I have situations where 1 person is repeated 3 times eg. Skype user, Phone number saved on Skype and MSN user and in most cases all three entries carry the same name. Problem is Fring for iPhone does not differentiate between Skype and MSN users.

    2. Call quality thru Skype can be quite clear but the delay can be very great. It’s ok for short calls perhaps but I can’t seem to use it for longer conversation.

    3. No file xfer yet.

    4. No change of status. eg Online; Away; Asleep; Gone Fishing; Dead. Ha ha!

    Few other things but don’t get me wrong it’s a great software and despite these issues I still want to use it.

    Thanks to all at Fring!

    Fring is an awesome applcation. It has everything which I would expect from an IM.

    I use it for voice and text communucation over Google Talk (mostly) and Skype.

    It works great with a slight problem. Sometimes, the voice breaks most of the times when speaking with someone at Google Talk. I know it’s not my internet connection as I use the same when I am talking with them through Google Talk itself on my laptop.

    Still, I must say that you have done an excellent job writing this wonderful and all-in-one application. Kudos to your company and especially the team who is working behind the scenes.

    On April 23rd I mentioned my experience unlocking my iPhone and using fring and Skype sucessfully. I also mentioned an unexpected byproduct of unlocking my iPhone was that the camera would take photos BUT not save them, some kind of photo directory permission that one could fix my ssh to the iPhone and changing directory permissions as I referenced in a link. However, it was not clear to me how to ssh to my iPhone so I’ve done w/o my camera.

    Then, this morning I checked the Installer and downloaded a Free better camera application that has a timer etc. and presto, not only did the new camera app work, but also my regular iPhone camera app that came with my iPhone. I also tried the videocam app which seems to work fine, but it’s only free for the 1st 30 videos, and it fills up my 4GB iPhone memory quickly.
    However, I’m glad to report my camera’s back in action and I just made a free Fring call to Sweden from the US and plan to make more calls using fring.

    Great, it is working like a charm :)
    I’m using Skype and MSN messenger and both, chat and skype calls, are working perfectly!!!

    There is an app called Truphone on the iphone just like this but it doesn’t support skype, so I see no reason why this app can’t be in the iphone apps store.

    Great App.

    When will it be available on the iTunes App Store?


  465. on 18 Jul 2008 at 2:00 pm 465.gent said …

    put it on App-Store! .. thats the only app i need really .. and i dont wnat to hack my 3G for only this app!

    btw .. i want to pay for fring! .. it dont have to be free .. but put it on App-Store please.


  466. on 18 Jul 2008 at 5:34 pm 466.dfgs said …

    This sounds like a great app. But as mentioned above, some people don’t want to hack their 3g.

    Even if it means that fring for now will only work on a WIFI network, at least we are able to download from the app. store in Itunes and use it.

    I would LOVE this on the app store. I’d totally lay down $10 for this (I still haven’t bought any apps yet).

    If this was released through the app store and didn’t require a jail break I would pay for it.


  474. on 21 Jul 2008 at 9:05 pm 474.Stefan said …

    pls put it in the App Store – no problem to pay. Its still much easier than to try to open the phone and have all those hassles. Can you please hurry – its the app that can be used very well!


  475. on 21 Jul 2008 at 9:25 pm 475.MertenNor said …


    I thinck the Fring on iPhone is very good…

    But it needs one update here is some thing you need to fix:

    1. Make it basebol to tilt the iPhone side ways sowyou can type faster..

    2. make the pasebole to chose online status

    3. It isent pasebole to call to other phones from skype oute you need to fix that

    4. Get it on AppStore on iPhone 2.0


  476. on 22 Jul 2008 at 10:16 am 476.marktesch said …

    i agree, please get on the Appstore for iphone 2.0!


  477. on 22 Jul 2008 at 11:27 am 477.Fico99 said …

    I was using Fring on my iPhone v1.1.4 to chat with my MSN and Skype contacts.

    Now that I upgraded my iPhone to v1.2.0, I discovered that I cannot use Fring anymore :(

    Can you please port Fring to iPhone Software 2.0 or get it on the AppStore?

    Consider this another vote cast for Fring on the iPhone 2.0, jailbroken or no. I loved Fring and I can’t wait to use it again!
    Here is an article about porting iPhone 1.x apps to 2.0. http://is.gd/10G8

    Thanks for the great app!

  482. on 23 Jul 2008 at 4:44 pm 482.Chris said …

    Hi everyone.
    Yes, Fring is a great app. Unfortunately, it does not work on EDGE – it requires wifi or 3G. On the other hand, Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO has declared that ONLY WIFI VOIP APPLICATIONS WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE APPLE STORE. So, if you want Fring on your iPhone 3G, you will have to downgrade to firmware 1.4. Yeah, blame it on Steve Jobs.
    Lots of Love


  483. on 23 Jul 2008 at 5:44 pm 483.Luke said …

    This looks really promising, but I need a 2.0 iphone app to work on my 3G phone, any word on moving to the 2.0 platform? I would be happy to pay or donate up to a 1/3rd of my iphone cost as this will save me greatly!

    hi guys
    when i’m using fring, i have a problem with my nickname in msn.
    I used http://www.quienteadmite.com once and my nickname was changed.
    Now i fix it in the traditional msn, but i still have the problem in fring.
    How can i change my nickname in fring?

    thanks a lot.


  485. on 23 Jul 2008 at 9:47 pm 485.Mauricio said …

    sorry, but i forgot to mention in the last comment that i use fring in an iphone.

    I can only log into Fring once. If I idle my phone to save battery it boots me off and I can not re-log back in unless I delete and re-install it.It will either take me to the icon screen or to the Fring site but none of my Buddy List appear or the Communities page is blank.I tried uninstalling it, deleting the application adn re-downloading and it still doesn’t help. I fond another user on the Fring Blog site. Sorry… One minor glich.


  487. on 24 Jul 2008 at 2:33 pm 487.Elixir said …

    There seems to be something missing. I could log on to gtalk for only a couple of times. Now it just says “Reconnecting” and nothing appears. One of my friends could not even log in once. I will reinstall it and give it a try. Some bug which fring has to address?


  488. on 24 Jul 2008 at 3:54 pm 488.Nick said …

    If Fring works with just wifi and 3G only why its not available for the new 3G iphone? it actually works with 3G and wifi. Please explain that!


  489. on 24 Jul 2008 at 3:57 pm 489.Nick said …

    also please do a version for the new iphone!!!! ASAP!!! :)


  490. on 26 Jul 2008 at 12:06 am 490.DanF said …

    I also would like to offer my encouragement towards the production of an update for the 2.0 firmware. I hope the developers are reading these comments, it would be comforting to hear some sort of reply!

    Also, @488.Nick: I think the answer is they also make Fring for other types of phones. Remember! iPhone isn’t the first 3G option on the market…

    Yep. All I can say is that I would absolutely love to use fring on my iphone 2.0 (either app store or cydia). I would be more than willing to pay, as long as the price was reasonable.

    I installed Fring on my IPONE (1.4) last night. I got the test message from Fring. Then my IPHONE touch screen functions froze!!
    Now I receive calls but I cannot answer because the slide to unlock or any other touch fuction don’t work.
    I cannot turne it off or turn the screen on either.
    I have a black IPHONE! Wonderful!
    Could anyone help?

    Great Job Guys, Simply amazing App. Now i can really stick it to my cell carrier. However, there are a few bugs.

    1. The volumn is very low, i dont know if this is to keep the bitrate low or not, but i can hardly hear someone on the other side, and vise versa.

    2. It doesn’t work with the headset plugged in. I tried making a call once, and i couldn’t hear a thing, not even on the test call.

    3. I’d love for a options button, with a few more options, such as colour scheme and such.

    4. Notice ring is extremely loud, when one has their headphones on listening to music. It’s ear peircing.

    Besides those, Amazing app!

    [...] Is this the cheapo way to make calls? Duh. Is this perfect? Of course not. You need to be connected to the internet at all times. Still, if you mostly have wifi, the possibilities are endless. Gizmo5 will run on many mobile phones and the Nokia Nseries tablets. Using this guide, you can set up free calling on an iPhone or iPod Touch using Sip-Voip or Fring. Heck, you can even use it on a Palm with Voice over Your Palm and on Windows Mobile with SJPhone [...]

  508. on 11 Aug 2008 at 7:19 pm 508.Aleksandar said …

    This is a wonderful application which allows free voip calls and chatting. I would recommend one thing which I personally think would enhance the user experience a lot – Support for LANDSCAPE mode (iPhone version). I think that typing in landscape mode is at least 50% faster and more accurate than the portrait mode and this would make chatting a lot more pleasant.

    Keep up the excellent work.

  526. on 14 Sep 2008 at 3:46 pm 526.miko said …

    not in App store, cause Apple doesn’t permit to use VOIP. You need to jailbreak your phoen to use that or lobby Apple to change their business model. Decide yourself what’s easier….

    I was able to make it run on my HTC Touch and MSN and YM are working well. But I can not make SIP calls. I registered my details on my Onesuite voip account choosing “other” and Fring was able to successfully registered it. But when I tried to make SIP calls, call hang up after 1 second.

    Anyone knows whats the problem?

    I love the app but I like many others are hoping that in future versions, the phone handles its connections to servers. I run an internal SIP server that is only private IP so when connecting to the office WiFi, it would be a huge value add to be able to login to this SIP server from fring and use this as an internal wireless handset.

    Anybody have some tips on getting Fring working on Edge? itunes won’t let me put it on the iPhone (J/B), Also, normal Fring keeps terminating Skype calls while on wifi ????

    Great App!

    Another vote for enable Keypad during the call. Needed for voicemail, conference calling and IVR that everybody has these days.

    This is really cool!

    I’m having the same issue with the Skype registration, it just keeps spinning, and spinning, and spinning…has anybody found a solution to this?


  558. on 31 Oct 2008 at 4:19 pm 558.Tom said …

    Like what others say “it is indeed a killer app!”. However I have some suggestions for improvement to make. I tried to use the fring for the iphone for my IVR applications, however, after you make a call you won’t have a way to make ‘touch tones’ input. It would be a nice addition to the next Fring release to support touch tone during the call. Sometimes after making a call, it takes a while before you can make another call. And most of the time the call is terminated before it is completed. A speaker phone support would also be a nice addition to it.

    Thank you so much for creating an applicaton like this!

    Hi! Fring is absolutely great, it keeps me connected to skype & yahoo messenger within my pocket. But sadly there’s no notification when having a message or a call if it’s on stand-by(pressing HOME button). I hope an update will fix this. And also please please please include CHIKKA MESSENGER in the service.

    Thanx. Keep it up…

    Still no Skype $$ balance. How long will this be ? An option to change the color of the icons would be great – I am color blind and these all look the same to me. Option to increase the text sizes – especially when sending IM. My Nokia N80i is way too small to be able to see the text when typing.

    App seems quite good one. But when we get a call thro fring, when we didn’t open the app.. we are unable to attend it directly. If we answer the call, the fring app opens and it takes times to log in and there is the drawback.. it would b great if the fring team fixes this…

    But for it, its the greatest app… hope to get a fix for this soon.
