Over recent months we've been working to enhance the functionality we're able to provide to our trialists and the first of these enhancements comes in the flavour of fring™ Those who've already been taking part in our VoIP beta trial will probably have already noticed the Fring download links we've added to the VoIP beta control panel. If you've not yet registered to the VoIP beta then what are you waiting for!? Registering will make sure that you get to hear about and trial new offerings like fring™ before they're officially announced. fring™ is a mobile internet service & community that enables users to access & interact with their social networks on-the-go, make free calls and live chat with all your fring, Skype®, MSN® Messenger, Google Talk™, ICQ, SIP, Twitter, Yahoo!™ and AIM®* friends using your mobile handset’s Internet connection rather than costly cellular airtime minutes.
