News: fringOut Now Available for iPhone

Previously only available for Android and Symbian S60, fring’s phone service (VoIP) has recently become available for the iPhone as well.  This gives iPhone users yet another way to skirt around AT&T’s system to make cheaper international calls or be able to call home when you’re overseas without paying crazy international roaming charges (you still need some kind of internet connection on your phone, but a hotel or airport wifi should work great).

You can check fringOut’s rates here.

Remember that fring also lets you make free ‘calls’, audio and video, to your friends who also use fring and is available on Symbian, Android and iPhone currently.  And don’t forget their recent addition of Dynamic Video Quality (can’t wait to test that out!).
