    THIS POST IS DIRECTED AT IPOD TOUCH USERS NOT IPHONE USERS (sorry for the miscommunication stephen.4)

    so just out of curiosity, i know that fring is capable of allowing even the ipod touch to make calls (with the right mic add on), but whats the point, cell phone plans give you so many minutes and so much free call time and free calls to specific numbers that the free VoIp calls dont serve much purpose, i mean i suppose if you have a pay as you go phone then this would be wonderful but for the average person what is the advantage to being able to make these free calls, its not like your gonna cancel your cell phone service and only be able to make calls when you have a wifi signal, i dunno, i was excited to hear that it was out but its really nothing that incredible, unless you have and iphone and go over your mins all the time, then it would be great

    You, currently, it ONLY applies to iPhone owners. It's cheaper, and iPhone's have this thing called a microphone, used for talking.

    what i meant was that my question as to what is the point is only directed at ipod touch users, i know its good for iphone users, i just meant whats the point for ipods, and it can work with the ipod and a mic add on

    A VOIP-enabled iPod won't replace a cell phone, but it'll be able to double as one. It's therefore extremely awesome.

    Anyone give it a try yet with the Touch!?

    edit: Someone on youtube got it working (but he didn't have a mic to test the mic function): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrQggKrwXIc
