Fring and Skype

You don't even need a skype number, just skype out credits.

Fring does work, you just have to type the phone number as


where xxx is the area code and yyyyyyy is the phone number.

Try it. I have been using it to call in to conference calls at work over our wifi to save on the family share plan minutes. I do not pay for a skype number, just renewable skype credits.
