    I understand your frustration. I've installed Fring on my old iPhone and was able to set up that and my current device as Fring buddies. Fring works over WiFi perfectly.

    Skype-out seems to be another matter altogether. I've been through the user guide located at fring.com, and the best I can tell, it should work with a 1 in front of the area code. I've tried and still does not work.

    Now, I have set up a couple of contacts directly in Skype as SkypeOut contacts. Those contacts, once they appear on my buddy list, work. It is an extreme PITA to get those contacts to appear. I haven't found any pattern to getting contacts seamlessly added. I've unsubscribed from Skype and deleted the app entirely. A lot of work IMHO. Unnecessary work.

    sorry you guys are having trouble but as I've found, almost all the apps in the app store are either worthless feeble attempts at programing that couldn't hold a baby occupied for more than a minute or they just don't work period.
    Thanks Apple. Here's to cracks

    I agree.

    I played around some more with Fring. I again went to one of my contacts that automatically comes over from the iPhone address book. I select the number to call (which is in the form of (xxx) yyy-zzzzz, get prompted to call using SkypeOut or Cell. I select SkypeOut. I then get a dialog box asking me if I want to call that number. I edit that number by putting my finger on the left parens just before the area code. I add a +1, and select call. The call goes through.

    As I wrote elsewhere, in addition to adding "+" before the REQUIRED country code, if your logged into your Skype account via your computer and you try to Skype via your iPhone, the call will terminate as well.

    Good point. I wonder if Fring is advanced enough to warrant a Skype tutorial that can be stickied. I'd appreciate it. :)

    Make sure also that you are not logged onto Skype on two devices....like you computer and your phone. After shutting down Skype on my Macbook I was able to get a Skypeout call to work on my phone. +1 in front of the areacode.

    I agree that Fring sucks! So far it has been totally worthless.
