    You're using Fring to make phone calls? Are you trying to make Skype international calls or something?

    Gotcha.

    I don't know how that's going to work for you - this is a Fring front end for the Skype protocol/cloud, so not all Skype client features are there.

    Fring itself is ok - it's designed to be a one-size-fits-all messenger - read: can't fit everything, and Fring itself advertises for only free calls (read: user account) on most of its services.

    I presume you're trying to save on minutes to landlines with the $80 plan, not too bad a plan, actually...

    I think you'll be stuck until Skype widens their client support for "just works" capability.

    Meanwhile, check this out, follow your nose to RF Dialer, and watch what they say about VoIP violating your terms of service if done over the 3G net -

    skype is terrible on fring to me, my contacts never show up online i have to subscribe and unsubscribe and sometimes that does not work. Then when i try to do a video call with my wife she can see me on her computer but i just see a still shot of her or nothing at all.

    I got mine to work without problem. I have Skypeout. I'm able to use SIP with fring too. Did you add the plus + sign before 1 when you made the call? Fring with Skype works both on WiFi and 3G.

    Just my $0.02 but I have had problems with Fring from the first time i installed it. I continue to have trouble signing into my Fring account also. This morning the resolution was switching off the work Wifi in my office to a 3G signal and I connected. I have always had problems with Skype and making receiving calls, seeing contacts online. Very frustrating app for me so far.

    Ok still can't get a fring video call to work. I watched the video and it shows a blue video icon when you try and dial a number out. I don't get that. I just have a cellular button, a skype out, and an SIP button but no video button. Am I dialing out wrong? If I try and make a skype call it just hangs up and won't dial out.
