VOIP Calling From The iPhone

April 17, 2008

Fring has announced that they will be offering VOIP calling capabilities to the iPhone.

From Fring’s web site:

fring™ is a mobile internet service & community that enables you to access & interact with your social networks on-the-go, make free calls and live chat with all your fring, Skype®, MSN® Messenger, Google Talk™, ICQ, SIP, Twitter, Yahoo!™ and AIM®* friends using your handset’s internet connection rather than costly cellular airtime minutes.

Bringing PC-benefits to the mobile, fring will empower you with mobility and availability as never before, integrating all contacts in to one, searchable buddy list, allowing you to see who’s online before dialing with contact availability indicators, engage in multiple conversations simultaneously, send & receive files and more.”

As an iPhone user/fanatic, I am thrilled about this capability.  It remains to be seen if AT&T and Apple will allow this to be done on a locked iPhone, but it will be pretty sweet if they do.  If they don’t allow this, then I just might unlock my iPhone.
