Hi,
This is a Viber rep, I'll be here to answer your questions and help with technical issues.

As suggested here, please check your Push Notifications and make sure they are turned on.
Also, despite the fact that Viber CAN work even when shut off, we recommend our users to leave Viber running in the background if possible. It actually SAVES more battery rather than relying on Push Notifications and it improves overall functionality.

Thanks for that and welcome to the forum. And THAT thread on the Android forum was pretty interesting and entertaining!

Text messages = bye bye WhatsApp.

When I brought my iPhone into the Genius bar they said that Viber was using a lot of memory while open, hopefully this is fixed.

An SMS function will mean I can ditch WhatsApp and have everything in one app. Can't wait!
While waiting for the update to be released, I wouldn't equate a "message facility" with SMS.

Besides, YAK! is far better than whatsapp.

Viber doesn't use up a lot of memory.
In fact, you can try it out for yourself - leave it open for a whole day and check your battery consumption.
About bandwidth - Viber uses about 0.5MB per minute.

I'm an Android user and cannot wait for it to come out on Android in the next few months! I have not really properly used Viber yet but I know lots of people that say its fantastic. I'm told the call quality is brilliant, better than voice calls sometimes - but then again someone else disagreed with that completely. I know on Skype sometimes the quality is great and others its awful - but Viber have a better algorithm or something.

I started using WhatApp a few months ago and I think its absolutely fantastic. The thing is, its NOT free texting - its so much more - you have proper actual conversations like on IM you don't just send one or two texts back and forward - you can see when the other person is typing and if they have got your message etc - really handy. Also there is no signing in with usernames and passwords, and it automatically know who else of your friends has it from numbers in your phone book and even facebook too! So handy. Now that viber is getting this, along with free calls - it is an absolute must have for any smartphonoe user!

Thing is some of the networks are clamping down and blocking VoIP - I just hope that does not happen here!

Zascar,
As we've discussed in the other thread, do you know of any specific cellular operators that are currently blocking VoIP (and thus - Viber) on their 3G networks, or planning to do so in the future?

I'm talking about operators in Ireland or the UK.

Thanks.

No mate, I'm only going by what you told me in the other thread. You mentioned a rumour that Vodafone did it in the UK but I don't think this is true - unless someone can confirm?

Vodafone blocked Viber in a few other European countries, and it seemed that Viber was also blocked in the UK.
For now it seems OK, but I need users' input on that.

About the desktop version - this is actually our next goal after the Android version.
Naturally, it'll take a while before our PC version is fully developed and available for users. As always, you will know once it's ready and/or we need beta testing.
