Get Free iPhone minutes with Fring

If you have been looking forward to this you will be happy to see it was released! You can get Free iPhone minutes with Fring. This shows that Apple has really turned the corner and is willing to rebuild relations with developers. After 6 months of not-quite-official availability for those of us with jailbroken iPhones, Fring, a free mobile Voice-over-IP service (VoIP), has made its way to the App Store. With that, a day that some said would never come has arrived: Skype calls can now be made on the iPhone, no hacks required. Beyond the Skype functionality (which I imagine would be its most popular use), Fring also lets you chat (and call, where appropriate) friends over MSN, GoogleTalk, AIM, Yahoo, Twitter, ICQ, and of course, Fring’s own service.

Note that when dialing using "Cellular," you receive the following confusing message:

"Note: Operator voice fees apply for all regular cellular calls. Continue?"

It is not that there a fee that gets applied to your phone bill. Fring is "free," but it's simply telling this vague message about voice fees. This message basically says that making a cellular call through fring will cost you the same as if you were making the call from your handset without fring (you will be billed by your cellular operator)

You are still being very unclear. Are calls made just subtracted from your available minutes? Or do they charge you for minutes based on your overage minute price?
