    Default [fring] VoIp application, connecting to Skype and SIP servers

    fring is out, see http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/M...290948830&mt=8

    fring is a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) client. It means you can make phone calls over the internet. The great thing that distinguishes fring from Truphone and other competitors is: fring connects to almost any service where you already have an account. Your Skype account, or any of your SIP-based accounts, will work with fring.

    Disadvantages: it used to be a jailbreak app, but it's now in Apple's AppStore -- so it can't run in the background (you can't wait to be called) and it won't run over the 3G (or EDGE/GMTS) network.

    What are your experiences with it?

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    Long live fring! And can't you run fring in the background using Backgrounder?

    I had got a Patch (For 1.1.x Fring) that allows calls over EDGE also (No WiFi needed). Any chances for the same patch for this Fring (via Cydia)......

    A hack to use fring on edge or 3G would be great.

    Yes, there is already a hack out. But I wonder if it's of any use over EDGE. Wouldn't it be too slow?

    The delays in EDGE/GPRS are said to make VoIP unusable.

    Wasn't there a general jailbreak hack available that makes all applications 3G/EDGE-enabled? (That shouldn't be a problem with forum rules; there is unlimited talk about things like Backgrounder that enable AppStore apps to break some AppStore rules).

    There is already a patch so you can use it for 3G.
    It's super hot.
    Just look around & I know you'll find it like I did.

    Good luck
