Can't get Fring to work on Nokia E65

I have tried to get Broadband phone to work on my  Nokia E65.
It has been unlocked and debranded as per Puddys advice.
It will not connect to the Plusnet servers.
I have now tried Fring. I clicked on the link to Fring and I was sent the text message. It installed OK.
It asks for a username and password which I don't have. I have tried to enter my Plusnet details and the program says user names must start with a letter.
Can someone help me to get it to work?
Thanks.

Did you download Fring via the link on your voip control panel ( voip.plus.net ) ?
If so I thought it was supposed to be preconfigured.
Hopefully someone who uses it will come along and help.
If you've not already been there this thread http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,58951.0.html might be useful.

Thanks for the reply MisterW.
I have just found out by accident that after installing the software on the phone you have to create a new fring account with a new username and password. Once that is set up and running I had to choose the SIP option and then I could use the Plusnet phone settings. Now it works.

Re: Can't get Fring to work on Nokia E65

Sorry you’re having problem with your Nokia e65
I dont like fring but if works on Fring theirs no reason your e65 will not work with the settings I have listed below
let me know what sort of problem you’re having and hopefully I can get it working
we could go through the settings again if you want to call me at home or e-mail me
I will list the settings again for you to cross check
You know where I am if you need any more help
your plusnet password in the nokia phone is not the same as your plusnet web account or the login in page at http://voip.plus.net
Kind regards

Your Plusnet voip account /login page can be found at http://voip.plus.net. When you login you will see your basic voip account page information, next down is your voip phone password its blank but you can enter any new password in case you forgot your old one.  You need to update your password if changed on your nokia e65.
Most connection problems are related to incorrect user name and passwords

Thanks for the reply Puddy.
I tried the settings you posted above and they work perfectly. Fring has been uninstalled.
The only change I made from the last attempt to get it working was the registrar server to sip:newsip.plus.net
Registration is set to Always On and it registered straight away.
I'd buy you a drink if you were passing by Brighton.
