fring on the Sony Ericsson P990i

WARNING: Not for the impatient or faint hearted!

You can get fring on your Sony Ericsson P990i in 3 steps:

1. Check that you have the latest firmware. (Go to Main Menu / System Information. The latest firmware is R6D23). If you don’t have it, get it from Sony Ericsson. Go grab a cup of coffee – it will take about 15 minutes to install.
2. Get an audio plug-in from fring here (cah1621023_semcvoipaudio.sis)
3. Get fring via SMS as usual (fring should be up & running within about a minute as usual)

Sony Ericsson fringsters will enjoy the same fring functionality as the rest of us (except no history yet).

p.s for all those who have been asking us, fring doesn’t (yet) work on any other UIQ devices. Unfortunately the M600 and w950 won’t be compatible due to device limitations.

    [...] Fring for P990 In addition to our earlier post about VoIP for UIQ 3, we would like to notify that fring is now available for UIQ 3 – just like ares (without naming the application) told you guys it would be. The fring application is now available for P990, and according to an e-mail fring sent us, more devices will follow. Among these will undoubtedly be P1 and and the recently announced W960. At this point in time fring is not working on M600 and W950 due to limitations. [...]

    I’ve downloaded fring on my p990i. This is what appears on the screen during the installation:


    What does it mean? I’ve already installed the audio plug-in!!!

    After installation of both audio and Fring 3 while registration it fails whyz that? any body can help?

    Brilliant. Just got it running on my P990i without any hassle and truly impressed. Finally I can save some money using it at work on the WLAN. Two suggestions for possible future versions:

    1. Auto Start
    2. Flip Closed Mode (App doesn’t appear in menu’s to start it but works if receiving a call and thereafter making a call)
    3. Speakerphone

    Otherwise brilliant work!

    thank you very much!!!

    it works well, although there are some problems when i use different ISPs but on one of the ISPs i use, it works flawlessly.

    made my phone more valuable.

    thanks a lot.

    My phone’s latest version is R9F011. I tried following the steps.. and it installs and even gives me an icon. But when I try to start it says that The Application could be started. Please help me!

    Got fring test call working on my P1i too! I could chat but the app restarted when I tried to do a MSN call… will try with Skype when my contacts are available! :)


  11. on 01 Aug 2007 at 8:50 am 11.Charles said …

    Just downloaded the application, and also downloaded the CAH1621023_SEMCVOIPAUDIO.SIS (http://www.fring.com/UIQ/getit.php) and the test call went fine.

    I’m using a P1i.

    Installed fring on P990i. Google talk works great but I cannot get my Skype account to work. When I make a ‘Skype Out Call’ the phone starts to dail the number then 2 seconds later stops says ‘ending call’. Any suggestions? James

    It can’t show the chinese on nick name .
    so,I don’t know which one is who.


  15. on 14 Aug 2007 at 5:23 pm 15.Rene said …

    I installed the audio plugin and still it won’t install on my p990… now the installation asks for cah161022_Semc3rdPartyTele.sis?!?! which is what?


  16. on 14 Aug 2007 at 5:32 pm 16.omri said …

    To get the cah161022_Semc3rdPartyTele.sis
    simply go to http://www.fring.com/uiq

    This is a new plugin needed with the new version.


  17. on 15 Aug 2007 at 7:43 am 17.Fred said …

    I connect to fring through home ADSL by WLAN but it fails to connect in my company WLAN. I’m sure the internet is ok because I have tried the web browser. I wonder whether there’s any relavant “Network” setting in Fring for users can set the network or select the network. Can anyone answer me? Thanks.


  18. on 21 Aug 2007 at 1:44 pm 18.Mauricio said …

    As Jon I’ve upgraded my firmware to R7 and now it doesn’t works…Application could’nt be started … Could someone help us?

  49. on 13 Oct 2008 at 10:23 pm 49.Silas Denyer said …

    FRING PEOPLE: R6D23 is NOT the latest firmware for P990i; that is R6E28 (and that is the last and latest, as development on P990i has stopped at SE).

    So far I can’t get the pre-requisite audio updates to install on R6E28. Will post if ultimately can make it work!

    Please send me a download link by email about fring application that my device is sony ericcson p990i.2_how can i use it with mtn irancell network.


    ErikAF Reply:

    Can you be more precise? If you only have set in your P990i internet account and it’s active then start Fring application which will automatically connect to the Fring server. That’s all.
    Fring app. for UIQ3 you can only find on UIQ3_soft sites, for example softpedia:
    Google, Yahoo, Bing search option.


  65. on 15 May 2011 at 3:01 am 65.ErikAF said …

    Fring works on P990i OK. Calls and Chat.
    The only trouble I have with Fring app. – there isn’t Yahoo! icon although I am subscribed in there already.
    On my Yahoo! account messenger works OK.
    And there’s one issue, here on Fring site. I can’t find login option to my Fring account. FringOut login&password option doesn’t work for me.
    Why “friends finder” doesn’t work anymore?
    Please, do comment on this.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Erikaf,

    I do have P990i, I have tried all the links on the page but they seems to be expired.

    Can you pls share the links and how did u intall the software to your phonbe.

    Thanks in advance


    ErikAF Reply:

    Hi ediee,
    The official Fring reply referring vanished links from Fring site: “the previous site is not available anymore at this point since we are working to build a better site, we are sorry for the inconvenience.”.
    I have dowloaded Fring app from Fring site some time ago, but Fring for three months does not provide app for UIQ3 anymore.
    Try to find in the web download sites with Fring app ver 3.30.12 and before this don’t forget to install on P990i with Organizer R6D23 or R6E28 two additional apps: cah1621022_Semc3rdPartyTele_SymSigned and cah1621023_SemcVoIPAudio_SymSigned
    Read posts here from #4.

    Dear Fring

    Why cant you put the fring download for Sony ericsson p990i on your download page.

    i had fring installed on my phone and it worked well for 2 years all of a sudden it stopped working.

    now its asking me for username and password and i cant even remember the password i had used initially.

    You guys really complicate everything.

    try to simplify for all users

    please send me the latest fring version SE p990i by email
