  • Service Definition
    Once you have chosen your fring nickname and password, provide the details of our VoIP service (e.g., Skype, MSN Messenger or GTalk) so that you can begin making and receiving VoIP calls.You can add one or more VoIP services (e.g., Skype) to which you are registered. Make sure to have your username and password for each. If you do not already have a VoIP account, register on the Web before you begin to add networks. You can add a VoIP service at any time. 

    Navigate between the options using the up and down arrows on your handset to configure the service you wish to use.
