    What do you mean by "cannot use"?
    I can login with both, can place calls with both, but the big bug is that they don't seem to receive audio from the microphone, so I can listen to what the other person says but cannot talk. Yeah, that's somehow an inability to use Skype, but I don't know if you refer to that same problem.

    Luck,
    Rodrigo.

    Where did you download fring?
    Cant you just log in?

    Do you mean the mic is not working with these apps?

    But how do you realise it doesn't work?
    Does it try to call but the receiver doesn't ring?
    Does the app close?
    You don't have a button to make a call???
    Does an angel appear when you try to call and tells you "there is no way to make regular calls!"? :p

    You have to explain that in detail. If not, it is like if you go to a doctor and say "it hurts" (what hurts?) "It just hurts, it started yesterday".

    Ok Rodrigo

    Now I feel good beacause a angel like you can help me hear and be heard using fring, nimbuzz or skype whit my milestone...

    I proftt to ask you? Can you use your Fring to make calls, and hear the other side?

    Like a Doctor, who I am when my patients say it hurts my knee, or I have pain at my knee...I only ask some questions and after that I make a physical exam direct to the knee ( fring, skype, nimbuzz) after that, most of times I have a preliminaries diagnostics done to my patient...you must do that: operate or not.. continue using or not these apps

    same here

    Skype voice calls via fring do not work for me.
    Symptoms:

    * connection setup succeeds
    * I hear the callees voice, although with a delay of ~2-4 sec
    * The callee is unable to hear me

    I'm using a Motorola Milestone connected to my local Wifi (which otherwise runs fine).

    Is there anything I can do about this? Has anyone the same problem with fring? Or should I try nimbuzz?

    TIA,
    peter.

    I experience the exact same problem with fring! Call connects but person on the other end can hear me even when I can hear them.
    I tried Nimbuzz but did not work for me. The calls connect but neither me or the pearson on the other end can hear anything. Frustrating! I just cant use Skype on my Milestone. Do all android phones have the same issue?

    As I said before:
    I can listen but the other person cannot hear me. That's: there is a problem with the outgoing audio.
    Same problem with Nimbuzz and Fring.

    I hoped this was fixed sooner, my Nokia 5800 could handle Skype calls over those apps with no problems.

    I might be a little naive but have you tried using the handsfree? Thus avoiding using the built in mic to see if there's an API/driver issue?

    Forgot to mention I tried that too, with Nimbuzz (couldn't find any speakerphone button in Fring), no success.

    Should we try complaining directly to those software makers? :)

    I meant the headphones wired handsfree. Using the speakerphone would still use the inbuilt mic.

    I've run into exactly this same problem with my Google Voice + Gizmo + SipSorcery + SipDroid setup: phone registers to SIP, I can place or receive calls, but audio is one way only: I can hear but not speak.

    I wonder if there's something weird going on in the guts of the droid where the mic is not accessible to a voip client in the way you'd expect.

    Hmmm, SipDroid is working fine here on my Milestone - it's only Skype via Fring and Nimbuzz that aren't working. Are you hooked up via PBXes.org? That did the trick for me... Now if only Skype would work...

    Is there any way to hook the Skypeout account with pbxes.org? Skype's rates and service are fine for me and I tried to learn a bit about the SIP thing and it's too complicated, plus there are millions of providers and I already trust Skype, don't want to start jumping from company to company until I find a good one.
    I also have lots of Skype (over PC or other smartphones) contacts I wanna call ^^.

    Thanks,
    Rodrigo.

    Good news Rodrigo:

    The upcoming Fring version works on the Milestone... I'm beta-testing right now, and the Skype functionality is working fine. Should be out in a few days :icon_ banana:

    Because there is no original Skype client for Android. Skype Lite is a poor excuse for a Skype app (only chat via IP, voice runs over regular cellular calls)...

    It baffles me, to tell the truth, that Skype haven't seen fit to provide us with a halfway decent app - they've managed to do it for the iPhone and WinMo...

    Fring updated to 1.2.0.25. Says they fixed the Milestone issues.

    Mic doesn't work for me (tried on incoming calls only). Outgoing calls make it crash instantly.
    I tried reinstalling, rebooting, installing again. No success.
