    i thought if they used Fring they could now do it via 3G. If im right, i feel bad for the already crippled ATT network.

    Cool that it works over 3G, but it's going to be frustration once folks pop their data caps.

    that too! I would think that would be a huge problem when youre limited to a measly 2GB a month on ATT

    I think reason to video chat with as many of your iPhone peeps as possible.

    As much as possible. ;-)

    Yeah, just confirmed it works and our ffc is better than theirs (yes we already knew that, I know). It's kinda choppy but it works! Welcome to video chat fanboys. :)

    I wish Fring would update so you can use the rear facing camera, that would be a major plus.

    I just wish you could use it in portrait mode on the Evo. Seems to default to that on the iPhone.

    I had a hell of a problem with Fring yesterday. First time using it. I made my acct, and could talk to others. I turned it off, then later tried again and I could not login ever again.

    Set up a skype account on your PC. then set up Fring on your EVO. then link your Fring to Skype on the EVO.

    on a side note...just tried to video calling with a friend at work on his iphone. works pretty good. about a 2 second delay. vid gets choppy at times, but it does in fact work great.

    Skype contacts do take a while to show up it seems. And I've been having issues logging into Fring itself all day.

    Was able to get in and test it with an iPhone4 user here at work. It was surprisingly smooth over 3G for both of us.

    Sadly, with the Fring supporting iP4, I think a number of users will be in for a shock when they want to transition to Verizon for that very reason, if indeed the iP4 materializes there.

    I wonder what the trade-in allowance or eBay value for an AT&T version will be when that happens.

    I wonder if Verizion will keep their cap at 5 GB (I believe that's still true) or charge iPhone users extra - and keep the cap.

    um... a plus for who? Would you carry a mirror around with you to video chat?

    It would have been nice if the app for Android looked as clean as the iP4 app... No skype either.. what happened?
