On the heels of its new software for the S60 platform, today fring announced that the newest version of its software for the iPhone will support phone-to-phone video calling. fring video calls are possible with other fring and Skype users via Wi-Fi networks only (not via 3G). The video feature is embedded in the fring application, which already offers free voice calls from the iPhone. Since the iPhone's camera is located on the back of the device and there is no user-facing camera, fring for iPhone offers only one-way video calls (the S60 version offers two-way). fring's video calling feature will work on iPhones running system software 3.0 and up.

does anyone know how to initiate a video call on this so i can try it out. i got the app but can't seem to figure out how to make a video call. ... »

That is the User Manual for the App. I cant guarantee it will show you since my work PC wont let me download it, but its a start.

Applesauce version is watered down

Of course there is no 2 way video calling since the iPhone has no front-facing camera, but to require only wifi connection loses a lot. The Symbian version does 3G as well as wifi.
