When using Fring to make Skype calls using a iPhone or a iPod Touch you must dial using a plus and a 1. So an example of call area code 123 with number 111-2222 you would need to dial +1231112222 instead of just dialing 1231112222.
To dial the plus all you need to do is hold down 0 for a second and you will see the plus symbol appear instead of the 0.
I have a set of headphones with a microphone on order to verify functionality of using Fring to make Skype calls using an iPod Touch second generation. Supposedly Apple has some headphones with mics coming out for the 2G Touch’s but I have read that any iPhone headset with microphone combination will work just fine.
Again the “Call Terminated” error typically happens for one of two reasons.
- You are not waiting long enough for Skype to register and login. With Fring this takes a bit longer than normal and can not be fully logged in for up to 5 minutes.
- You are dialing the number incorrectly. Make sure to dial in the following format: +1231231234
