    Viber is an application that lets you make free phone calls to other Viber users.

    When you use Viber, your phone calls to any other Viber user are free, and the sound quality is much better than a regular call. You can call any Viber user, anywhere in the world, for free. All Viber features are 100% FREE and do not require any additional "in application" purchase.


    • Why do I need Viber?
      Because when you use Viber, your phone calls to any other Viber user are free, and the sound quality is much better than a regular call.
    • Can I call people that do not have Viber?
      Yes. If the person you're calling doesn't have Viber, the call will be placed using your regular phone - but don't forget to invite your friends to Viber so your next call is free ;).
    • Can I invite my friends to Viber?
      Yes, and you should. The more friends you have with Viber installed, the more of your calls are free.
    • Will Viber help reduce my phone bill?
      Once you and your friends install Viber, you can use it to talk as much as you want. Talk, talk, and talk some more and it's all free. Just make sure all your friends get Viber!
    • Can I use Viber when roaming internationally?
      Yes, it doesn't matter where you or your friends are, be it on the same network or in a totally different country.
      You can talk for as much as you want, for free. Just make sure your friends have Viber too, and check your data plans and roaming rates.
    • I don't have 3G, can I still use Viber?
      Viber requires an Internet connection: 3G or Wi-Fi need to be available.
    • Does it cost anything to use Viber?
      Viber and all Viber features are absolutely free and do not require any additional "in application" purchase.
    • Does Viber include advertisements?
      Viber doesn't contain any annoying ads.
    • How do I import my contacts to Viber?
      You don't. Viber uses your iPhone's address book and it's always synced. Viber also highlights friends in your iPhone's address book that have Viber. That way you know who you can call for free!
    • How long does it take to register?
      You don't have to register! You know your phone number, and so do your friends, so why bother with yet another username and password? Viber uses your phone number as your "identity" and lets you make free Viber phone calls to any of your friends that have Viber - using THEIR phone number.

    Uhhh...??? Isn't this just Google voice? Why reinvent the wheel that is meant to be on the car in the first place? Maybe I just don't get it.

    nope google voice is straight voip. doesnt work if you dont have data or wifi signal. free for me to call google voice to any #, other google#, cell or landline within US. Its free for both if both have google voice and I call the GV #. Now it does use google voice minutes to call abroad to a landline or cell but is a discounted rate from what verizon charges, but again is free for anywhere in world if you call GV to GV. Plus GV now has video calling also. Just FYI.

    Hi all,
    This is a member of the Viber development team.

    I'd like to refer to the concerns raised here about the "catch" involved in Viber:
    Viber is a completely free app. We have made a commitment when we launched the project that the app will always be free, it will not contain ads, and the basic service will remain free - and we still stand behind it.

    So why is Viber free?
    For now, Viber's focus is on adding platforms, adding features (such as text messages) and improving overall system performance. At the same time, we are working on additional future premium services that will generate revenues. As I explained: the basic Viber service - Viber to Viber phone calls and text messages - will ALWAYS be free.

    Feel free to ask any other questions you might have - I'm here :)
    Thanks
    Viber.

    You could have chosen a different device for your subscription, downloaded and tested.

    At any rate - Android's beta version will become public very soon - probably a few days - and then it will be available for download to all in Market. That will solve the problem for everyone.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm excited to announce that our Beta version of Viber-for-Android is FINALLY public, and now appears in Market for all to download!
    The version itself is slightly more updated than the previous one (mostly bug fixes), so we highly recommend everyone to download and install it.

    Important: those of you who were testing our Beta (after getting the invitations) will have to uninstall Viber, and only then install the Market version. Thank you!

    As usual, I'll be here for your questions, suggestions, bug reports or anything else really :)

    Thanks,
    Viber.
