  • The-one

    How about a Viber for WindowsMobile 6.6 and Windows Phone 7.
    And i mean for BOTH.
    There are still so many WindowsMobile 6.x smartphones in use that i really don’t understand that companies don’t port to WinMob 6.x

    • Viber

      Viber for Windows Phone is actually already under development. As it seems now, we will probably be supporting WP7 and above in the future, since prior versions have internal problems with handling VoIP.

      But it’s still very early to discuss this. We recommend you to follow our Facebook page for the latest updates and news.

  • The-One

    I mean Windows Mobile 6.5.

  • Sundar

    can anybody help me on how to exclude calls made by viber from my actual phone call log?

    • Viber

      This is option is not available yet, and it is something we are considering to develop in the future (a separate call log for Viber).

      We apologize for the temporary inconvenience

  • Adalamdinesh

    Is viber for blackberry curve out???? Is BB curve compatible to Viber??? I am looking forward to buy BB and I need Viber since all my friends and family members are in abroad :)

    • Viber

      At this stage, we estimate that Viber will be compatible with Blackberry OS 6.0 and above, regardless of the device type.

      But once we are close to officially releasing it (soon), we will have more concrete info :)

      We recommend you to follow us on Facebook for the latest updates and news.

  • Lizuka1988

    if i have 100 mb internet package a month is it enough to use viber or tango?

    • Viber

      Viber uses about 0.3MB per minute of call, and only 1KB per text message, so the choice is yours :)

      Note that if you are connected to WiFi when using Viber, it does not come off your data plan at all.

  • Poyraz Yildirim

    that would be awsome using viber on pc ^^

    • Eddy Edgren

      Yeah Poyraz, I tried to download it on my laptop and it didn’t work after reading your coment then I realized that there is not version of viber on laptops

  • Ippokratis Katsikas

    keep up the good work viber!

    • Viber

      You can expect a lot more to come… :)

  • M H

    I noted in the Recent Comments that the claim is UAE has blocked Viber. I am currently in the UAE (have been for over 3 months) it’s one of the main ways I communicate with ppl in the USA. I don’t use the phone function but I use the text and it works perfect.

    • Viber

      1. What cellular provider are you subscribed to?
      2. Are you using it on 3G or WiFi?

      • Mazen Tartoussy

        DU WIFI & 3G are working perfectly but in Etisalat Viber is blocked in both 3G & WIFI you need to use any free VPN just to connect viber then it will work

        • Viber

          Yes this confirms what we know.

          The authorities in the UAE have decided to block Viber in the whole country, and unfortunately there is not much we can do to help :(
          Try contacting the authorities and ask for the reason for this block.

  • Whatever

    can I turn off the notification sound and off the vibrate when a new message comes in?

    • Viber

      Currently, Viber uses your phone’s general sound/vibration settings. In the future, we plan to add specific settings for that inside Viber’s settings.

  • Jamil-akila

    • Viber

      Hi Ignacio,

      The authorities in the UAE have decided to block Viber in the whole country, and that is why you are experiencing this issue. Unfortunately there is not much we can do to help :(
      Try contacting the authorities and ask for the reason for this block.

  • Buntysharma17

    • Viber

      Viber does not support Mac Books yet.
      We play to support it at some point in the future, but we still have no concrete news.

      Stay tuned for news and updates on our Facebook page :)

  • Susil Thomas

    why viber is not working in CDMA blackberry in India

    • Viber

      Please note that Viber does not officially support CDMA connections, but rather only 3G and WiFi.

      Have you tried testing Viber when connecting to a WiFi network? Does it work?

  • Farshin Haji

    Well, don’t make a big deal out of it please. It will be similar to Messages beta for Mac. It will not be a beta in the next release of Mac OS. If you wanna verify ppl for the same account used on their phones, then just send a code from their desktop client to the phone and they enter the code and done. This is done by many applications since ages ago. There are a lot of similar apps now in the market, u wanna get a head of them, release the simple app for desktop and allow multi use of an account.

    • Viber

      Viber for PC is under development these days, and the authentication methods are still being discussed :)

      Once we have news, we’ll let our fans know.

      • vince

        • Viber

          Viber is also available on Android iPhone and Windows Phone. Viber for PC is also in the works :)

      • Lazza

        Let’s hope for a Linux version too. :)

        • Viber

          That is something we are considering, but unfortunately we still have no concrete plans. Once we have news, we’ll publish it officially through our Facebook or Twitter pages :)

  • Guest

    • Viber

      Working on it :)

  • Soi Fernandes

    I currently live in Timor-Leste and love using Viber to contact my friends abroad. Since the only cellular provider (Timor Telecom) has upgraded all numbers, now there´s an additional 7 at the beginning of the numbers (8 characters). Because I installed the new version of Viber and need to get the activation code, I can´t get it because Viber only recognises the old numbers (7 characters). And even if I insert the old number I still can´t get it (using both sms and automated call) because no messages or calls go through when using the old number.
    When will Viber upgrade Timor-Leste´s numbers so we can use it?

    • Viber

      Hi Soi,
      Thank you for your message.

      This issue is actually known to us, and we’re working to fix it these days. We hope to resolve this issue completely soon, and we would appreciate your feedback once this happens.

      We apologize for the temporary inconvenience :/

      • Soi Fernandes

        • Viber

            So excited an update message popped out on my cell phone awhile ago and readily installed the latest version (2.3.1) of viber. Unfortunately, it still did not address the problem I raised about not being able to share photos in my gallery. What a letdown….so sad….why viber?
