I also installed Fring (new version) sometimes it worked sometimes not. Fring says issues will be resolved with the next firmware update to the edge.

It is so great that we now have a working camera. I have used Skype over Fring for video calls several times now and it has woked great! Only once did I have any audio jumpiness. Next I m going to try a vid call using my Bluetooth headset.

I've found that you have to rotate the view to landscape (sideways) manually before you initiate a call, especially a video call. I have only used the "Test Call" function, and it works, but the performances is rather poor at this point. Video and sound are very choppy.
