i find that the connection/sound quality not too good when making skype calls through fring.

bearable when you have no other options, but i would prefer using skypeout on the computer.


Fully agree... you have to go thru FRing servers as well. Symbian caved to their European telco customers who don't want their mobile customers making free wi fi calls.

Now to check the IPhone.

really? I must be lucky then.


Actually I would consider getting the Grandstream SIP gateway and paying prepaid with http://www.voipvoip.com/virtual-phone-n ... apore.html

1.9 cents per minute to 20 destinations and no hidden fees, like connection charges. Though you can also pay other packages if needed, its worth a look! You need the digital line to get the improved sound over VOIP inside the home, some only deliver to the door way. We have the mio setup, with two digital lines available in house, though the outgoing fees over VOIP are higher with Singtel. So I'm considering the grandstream SIP gateway, to reduce the per minute charges, you can also use when the computers are off.

I second that. As mentioned above (littlegreenman, my profile is corrupted so I had to re-register) voipdiscount still is the cheapest option out there with loads of free airtime and local access numbers which can be called with inclusive minutes from mobiles or starhub landlines for free. The only difference between the different betamax companies are the different free destinations but I found voipdiscount to have the biggest list of European and North American free destinations.
