    Has anyone figured out how to switch cameras on the Fring app yet? Some kind of way I used the back cam yesterday then I restarted the phone and it reverted back to the front.

    How did you get it to work to call a skype contact? When I select the option to add a contact, it wants me to enter a fring username.

    How did you get Fring to work, i'm trying it with a friend of mine who also has an EVO and when i find his number in my phone book i get the following to use:
    Cellular(only one i can choose)
    Skypeout, this is greyed out and i cannot choose it
    SIP, this is greyed out and i cannot choose it.

    what am i doing wrong?

    kayst - I think to add Skype friends to Fring, you need to use the actual Skype program and add them there.

    Rocky - Have you installed the Skype add-on in Fring and added your friend to your Skype account?

    Your friend needs to install fring on his EVO and create an account. You have to search for him, in fring on your phone, by his fring username (once in fring go to - menu - add friends). Once you find him, it will add him to your buddy list and now when you dial you will get the blue button video option, standard phone call option, and msg option.

    I was trying to video chat with a skype user. They had an online skype number so what I had to do was log into my skype account, add that number as a contact, then go into fring, sync with skype address book, and then i had the option to txt, call, or video call them. Of course after figuring all this out the d@mn video chat isn't supported via fring to pc. However, I was able to make a standard voice call whenever I wanted. Also, skype contacts can call you flat out. Fring not needed for that.

    I think what you want is to select "add-ons" instead of "add friends." Add friends only allows you to add friends who have a fring account if you know their username. If you click add ons - this will give you an option to sync with address book contacts, skype contacts, etc....

    My skype contact finally just showed up in Fring a day later without me doing anything extra. Never could get the video to work tho. They could see me and hear me on their pc, but I could never get any video or audio back. Oh well, just playing with it anyway - don't expect to ever want to actually use it.

    Thank you everyone who instead of posting a new thread with a new question started to waste everyone's time by talking about whatever they wanted and not the question ask in the beginning.

    So, for those of you who found this link while googling for a way of switching cameras in FRING VIDEO CALL, the answer so far has not been found by any of my searches.

    Finally, and more appropriately....

    Did anyone figure out if switching the camera was possible?
