Re: Skype for E71

Fring should do the job for you ,you even can call other buddies on msn...etc , also it supports skype out to call land phones with little charges .

Also you can recommned it for your friends who don't have Skype . msn...etc accounts , or even search for new friends.

No Skype for Symbian , period , Skype can only be installed on Nokia phones such as N810 ,but they are not Symbian , they are Linux .

Re: Skype for E71

there's an official skype beta version for N95. which works on e71 although not perfectly. see the link below:

http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/mobile/choose/downloading/?downloadId=56&selectedDevi...

i've installed in on both N95 and E71, on E71, when you login for the first time, you just have to imagine that you are using a N95 keypad when entering your account details, and select 'Automatically' login, your details will then be saved on your mobile.

Re: Skype for E71

by saying 'imagine you are using a n95 keypad' i mean for example,you want to type the letter K, instead of pressing K directly on e71's keyboard, you press the number key '5' twice, for letter 'Z', press '9' four times.

Re: Skype for E71

On my E71 skoot works perfectly. Fring is slow and weird, it assumes things about how I want it to behave (I do NOT want my E71 addressbook mixed with my Skype address book). Go with iskoot.

Re: Skype for E71

Problem with iSkoot is you can't access wifi you must use your phone company's data plan (iskoot have confirmed this to me). For me that's an expensive way of saving money by using internet phone.

Re: Skype for E71

Hi,

 

As far as I can tell, iskoot aims to allow you to call a local number to call skype contacts. That's why it works without eating up your data charges. A comment that I found on iskoot help forum:

 

iSkoot directs your call via a local access number- not the data connection, so you will be charged for VOICE CALLING no matter where you are located or what data APN you are using. 

Regarding connecting your call, this uses minimal data, and if you are connected via WiFi, you should not be charged for it.

Regarding SkypeOut calls, you should be able to use your unlimited Skype plan, but if you are not, you would have to take that up with Skype... And keeping in mind that you will pay for the minutes of the call to the local access number as a regular phone call.

 

Sounds alright to me. :smileytongue:

Re: Skype for E71

The only VoIP clients I know for E71 (by Voip, I mean that the phone will use your phone internet connection to call, instead of your cell connection) are:

 

-Nimbuzz

-Fring

 

Skype is NOT VoIP, it calls a local number which then calls your internet contact. The reason it's free for 3 UK, it's because it's included when you get a contract or with certain phones. I reccomend both Nimbuzz and Fring for anyone that has a data plan for anything above 200Mb or available WiFi around them.

Re: Skype for E71

Fring Rocks !!

 

I have not tried NimBuzzz but I know its very similar to Fring...

 

The only thing I have noticed with Fring is that when the E71 hooks onto a APN ... the FULL contacts list on Fring can take some time to refresh...and I can't seem to 'accelerate' the contacts appearing...

 

FRING IT ON !!!           :-)

Re: Skype for E71

Actually, the E71 has an integrated VoIP client. It works really well, since for example in the address book you can press the center button on a contact, select "Call", select "Internet call". This will automatically use your VoIP client to make the call.

 

For the client to work you will need 2 things:

 1. You need to sign up with a VoIP provider that is compatible with a SIP client: I am using www.dcalling.com and it works fine.

2. You will need to set up your VoIP client on the phone to work with this account. Most VoIP providers (including Dcalling) have detailed set up guides for this. The relevant phone settings are found in: Tools>Settings>Connection>SIP settings and in Tools>Settings>Connection>Internet telephone.

 

 This system let's you make internet phone calls at really good rates (as provided by the VoIP provider) and uses any access point that you tell it to you, to get to the VoIP provider (I am using my office WiFi connection).

 

The quality is better than anything I have seen with fring. I also really like the integration with the address book, since you can call anyone via VoIP without modifying anything in the address book.

 

Hope you guys like this too.
