    Hey folks, new Android user here (new HTC Legend owner) and was looking for a worthwhile app to use for VOIP dialing, when I'm in within range of the internet. So I don't have to use my mobile minutes.

    On my old Nokia E71 I used something called 'Fring' but surely Android has some apps that are much better than that.

    Not interested in paid apps either, I've already spent a fortune this week.

    I already have my own VOIP account with a provider and the needed info, so I just need the interface or whatever

    Thanks in advance for any help or reccomendations!

    cheers

    I'm pretty sure Android has Fring

    Fring no longer supports skype. (or vice versa)

    Does anyone else know other VoiP alternatives?

    So far the best I have found is SIPDROID and I have been through them all as I NEED to call home cheap! I work in Vietnam and with Sipdroid connected to gizmo5 over WiFi I am calling the USA for 1 cents a minute. Best rate I have found. BUT Gizmo5 has been bought out by Google so I think in the future they will have their own program/softphone for Android alas with adverts I would guess...

    Since Fring no longer has Skype I use Nimbuzz though. It's fairely useless though tbh - it's pretty stable, but whereas I used to get a warm feeling about fring as my phone would blurt out at the same time as Skype on my PC, I have barely heard a peep out of Nimbuzz - it appears to miss tonnes of calls.

    This is a real gap in the market.
