Fring VoIP client now auto-roams between Wi-Fi and 3G
Users of Symbian phones equipped with Wi-Fi and 3G can now automatically switch between a cellular voice provider and a voice over IP (VoIP) provider thanks to a new version of fring, a VoIP and IM client.

The updated fring application seamlessly roam between Wi-Fi and 3G networks by remembering Wi-Fi networks the user has previously connected to.

When the Wi-Fi network is available the application will route calls through VoIP, which is usually a cheaper option - but many times with the same voice quality users experience on cellular networks.

Mobile operators are working on their own solutions for this scenarios, but they all tie the user to specific access points, such as home, and to bundles such as broadband plans linked to mobile plans.

The fring solution is independent and it will work with any network provider.

Fring is available for Symbian and Windows Mobile devices, but fring auto-roam is currently supported on Nokia smartphones running Symbian 9.1 and newer, including the Nokia N95.
