I have been using nokia E51 from last couple of months, I use fring to access my skype account and make outgoing calls. But the performance is really very poor. The call gets dropped quite often. I have 2 questions:
Is there any other software that I can use to make the outgoing call more reliabily? I would prefer to use skype credits.
Is there any software that I can install to receive the calls on my cellphone like we do on PC?
If you are using Skype then you are pretty much stuck with Skype. Incidentally I installed Fring on an E51 recently for a friend. He uses it for Skype regularly and is finding it quite good, except for "peak" hours, usually during the morning on weekends when he experiences some problems.
I myself use Skype with Fring on both my N95 and N80. I also have a dedicated Linksys Skype phone. Difference is quality is marginal. I would however say that there seems to be a little more lag probably due to the calls having to be routed through the Fring server as well.
