Fring has been in the midst of major upgrades recently. They’ve rolled out major updates and redesigns to their Android, iPhone and iPad, and Symbian apps, and are also working on an upcoming version for Windows Phone.
Of course, with many major upgrades comes the expected drop in support for older versions, and this case is no exception. If you’re using an older version of Fring (pre-7.2 for Symbian, pre-4.0 for Android, and pre-6.0 for iOS), you have probably received a number of messages prompting you to upgrade to the newest version with a link included. Fring will be discontinuing support for the aforementioned versions in the “coming days.”
Basically what this means is, if you don’t upgrade to the latest version, you may not be able to connect to the Fring service at all. Of course, once you upgrade, your “fringOut” balance will be automatically transferred.
If you haven’t already, make sure you check your respective app store and upgrade to the latest version (or click on the link in the message you’ve received) to ensure continued connectivity to your Fring account.
