What is www.viber.com/dl link?

www.viber.com/dl is a download link for the Viber application. Most people find it in an invitation SMS (text message) sent by their friends.

Hey, you should get Viber. It's a free iPhone app that I use to make free phone calls – http://www.viber.com/dl

If you click on it with your iPhone (OK, tap on it), it will start the “App Store” application with the Viber page already opened. This represents a kind of a platform where you can see info, reviews, screen shots and from here you can install Viber as well.
When it comes to Android devices, the result is basically the same, only with one obvious difference – it points to the “Android Market”, of course.
If you choose to open that link in your browser, this will lead you to the Viber’s homepage.
Interestingly, if you open that link with a Blackberry or any other mobile device, it will open a page saying that “Viber is NOT compatible with your device yet”.

    viber application was installed (but not highlighted) but never asked for my telephone number. I never got the icon too. How do I reinstall the application – tapping wont allow me.

    • http://www.viber.com Viber

      We’re not sure we fully understand your question…. You installed the application, and then got the “enter your phone number” screen. Did you type in your number then?

      Please try removing Viber, wait 24 hours, reinstall and try again (make sure you try both the SMS and the automated call options). If this doesn’t help, contact our support team at http://support.viber.com and give them the details of the problem.

    Hello. İ am using viber on my iPhone 4s during 1,5 years. Viber version is 4.1.1. But now something happened, I can’t understand what’s going on :( I can get only incoming calls. I can’t make any calls and can’t send messages, also I get message voise but they don’t open in my viber. I deleted my viber and reinstall it. But it didn’t help. Now my viber cant to make cynchronization of my contacts. So I can’t make viber calls as viber says I don’t have Internet connection if even i have it. I use wi-fi. Also it says that the other contact doesn’t have a viber if I try to send him message. I don’t know what to do.

      - Does this happen with all users? Does it occur with specific contacts?

      • Feruza

        It doesn’t matter if I use 3G or wi-fi, it doesn’t work. No, it doesn’t happen with other users, only my viber like that. When i get message, it says ” U need to upgrade your viber to open message” . I couldn’t upgrade it because, I have to have at less IOS 6.0 for it. My IOS 5.1.1. Does viber version 4.1.1 not work anymore?
