fringOut Voice Calls to Phones < 1cent/minute-Credit for Travelers Stranded in European Airports

fring added a feature/service like SkypeOut that lets you call a conventional phone (landline or cell). Naturally, they call this feature fringOut.

NEW! fringOut for iPhone! Call the world less than 1c/min

The less than 1 cent per minute calls apply to the U.S., Canada, the UK and India. The fring for iPhone app is free.

And, if you are stranded in Europe because of the usual snowfall, fring is providing $5 fringOut credit if you follow the instructions provided in their fringOut announcement (linked at the top of this blog entry). This includes tweeting your fring user ID, referencing @fring, the #freefringairport Twitter tag, and a photo of your ticket (I’m a bit leery about this last item).
