Fring Officially Works On The Nokia E71 - New Version Out

Just letting you know for those Fring lovers that the application is officially compatible with the Nokia E71. Some people have been using a different version but not all the functions were working. Everything is supposed to work fine now according to Fring's blog. Fring is one of the best solutions for Voip on the E71, allowing you to make internet calls using Wifi or your 3g connection.

From the Fring Blog:
So you had some time to see what your new and shiny E71 can do. To be honest with you, we think it’s a wonderful handset too. But, don’t you think it’s time to get it fringing and not just ringing?

Yup, we think so too, so we’re glad to announce that we’ve just released a brand spanking new version for the E71. To get it, simply go to our download page, choose your handset, get an sms, click on it and you’re ready to go.

Some of the features of Fring...
- stay connected wherever you go with your Skype, MSN Messenger, ICQ, Google Talk, Twitter, AIM & Yahoo! buddies on your mobile
- save on your phone bill by placing local and international calls over the internet, rather than costly airtime minutes, & free chat rather than SMS
- with presence status for all of your contacts
- send & receive your favorite videos, music, games, ringtones, docs & more with fring’s new file transfer feature
- using your SkypeOut account or SIP provider
- just pick a contact and hit the green button
- all you need is your mobile phone! No need for a PC, WiFi or special hardware

If you haven't tried Fring yet you can see how it looks on the Nokia N95 in this video below. Everything works pretty much the same on the E71.

Click here to download Fring on your Nokia E71. It's wise to have a data connection or use only Wifi when using Fring.

p.s. I know I haven't been able to answer some questions on this blog the past few days. My hard drive crashed and I have been without a computer. All is just about back to normal now so stay tuned for new articles and lots of questions answered in the Help section.


  1. another p.s. I haven't installed this yet so I'm not sure about any bugs. I'm sure you will find a few. Good thing is Fring has a good support area where you can post questions and bugs. I'd advise everyone to use it.

  2. that's great n all, but my E71 seems to be capable of making Voip calls using SIP with the software built into the phone. And i'm not talking about Gizmo either....

  3. I doesn't works on my E71.

    The application shows the splash screen and closes automatically.

  4. (WebMessenger Message Alerts puts you back in control of managing communications on your mobile device by providing powerful rules and filters for your mobile email and SMS Messages)

    Will the Webmessenger Message Alert work on Nokia E71?

  5. Not sure I haven't tried it with web messenger. I don't even know what that is. You might want to try out this link...

    @ Javier, not sure why you are getting that problem. try to uninstall it, restart the phone, than install it again.

  6. You should really try nimbuxx as well. It works great so far on e71. Came from people who started skype

  7. Nimbuzz

    Typo error on earlier comment of mine.

  8. anyway to stop it from automatically changing to the window when someone types something?

  9. has anyone got the SIP thing which comes iwth e71 working for a service provider like voipwise?? fring doesnt work in middleast :(

  10. How can I shut the alert sound in fringe. I couldn't find it anywhere in the menu. Thx for your help

  11. sorry to disturbe your joy but this software don't work on my E71, it installs perfectly but after loading it just disappears !!

  12. hi, all...tried to download fring from the link here and upon clicking "install" it says "application not supported by phone"...anyone have an idea what i can do? thanks.

  13. Fring DOES NOT even open on my nokia E71!
    It installed just fine, but when I tried to open it, nothing happens.
    What a piece of software.

  14. I am planning to buy E71 for using Skype to make and receive Voip calls. Can some one tell me that Voip calls can be received on E71 like normal cellular phone calls? Or will it be necessary for me to keep Nokia E71 in a particular application for receiving Voip Call alerts? Will this mean that I can not use E71 for other applications simultaneously? Thanks!
