The Skypeout feature of Fring only functions while on WiFi with your iPhone, which makes that nearly useless for me, as I'd like to use it while at work to avoid using my minutes. As of yet, they don't make a Skype application that will function over 3g without using the iPhone's minutes from it's plan. IM+ for Skype provides Skypeout function over 3g, but it does a callback to your phone in order to make the call connection, which renders that service useless since it's still using your plan's minutes. It may be useful for low cost international calling, but not domestic free calling.
