iPhone gets Skype, SIP and MSN

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Fring is to blame


An Israeli start-up hidden behind the Fring brand has finally brought MSN/ ICQ, Skype and SIP(VOIP) support to the IPhone.

The application is in its pre-release 0.978 phase and has some issues, but it promises to makes your calls cheaper than ever before.

You can use MSN, ICQ or Skype to chat, but you can also use Skype out or VOIP if you have an account to make cheap phone calls. You can make free phone calls inside of your VOIP network but currently it doesn’t really work that well, at least for us.

We can hear the people but they cannot hear you, or vice versa, but this might be the issue with the VOIP provider or simply it's a bug in 0.978 pre release version of Fring.

Many users complain that they lost their SMS messages, but we learned that this happens to users who didn’t unlock their phone with Pawn procedure. The Pawned users with 1.1.14 don’t have any issues.

This is a great step in the right direction and we will look for the new developments in this area. You can read more and learn how to download it at official site here.
