Viber - Free Phone Calls

Viber is a free iPhone app the lets you make free calls to anyone who also has the Viber iPhone application installed on their iPhone. Calls on Viber are free and can be made over WiFi or 3G. Viber-to-Viber calls *are* free though they use your internet connection and or data plan. If you are on a WiFi network, you have nothing to worry about, but do watch your usage on 3G unless you do have the unlimited data plan.

The Viber user interface is almost identical to the Phone app on your iPhone, with the exception of the purple theme, making learning how to use the app a no brainer. All your contacts, Favorites, Missed Calls and more are accessible from the app.

Viber - Free Phone Calls

Setting up Viber couldn’t be simpler. You just enter your iPhone number, the Viber service sends you a text message with a code, and you enter that code into the Viber app. That’s it! No registration, no logging in or out, it really couldn’t be any simpler.

Viber - Free Phone Calls

Although only calls to other Viber users are free, you can still use Viber to make and recieve calls to and from your non-viber friends using your phone’s minutes, and the app lets you send them a quick message asking them to install the iPhone app. Anyone that has the Viber app installed has the little Viber icon next to their name in the Contacts section.

Now here’s the rub. If all you can do for free with Viber is call AT&T iPhone customers, and you already get iPhone to iPhone calls for free from AT&T, it defeats the purpose of the app, at least for domestic calls for AT&T users. If you are calling internationally often to other Viber iPhone users, then this app might still be of value to you. Viber also has to compete with other services like Skype which has a large user base. Viber needs to work on adding non-iPhone users to their list of customers, including Android and Windows users to gain more traction going forward.

    I think this app is extremely useful. I used it last month to keep in touch with my girlfriend who traveled to Ethiopia for a few weeks. Although we had to wait until she had access to WiFi (hard to find in Ethiopia), it was still WAY better than racking up the phone bill because of international calls or texts. I also really like the stickers! Some of the free sticker packages are really funny, and the animals are cute. Overall, I have had a great experience with Viber, and I am very glad I found this app.

    Hi @MeleKai -

    Unfortunately this option does not exist, but it is a very good idea for future versions.

    We invite you to enter our Feature Request page and post your suggestion there, or join an existing similar suggestion. The more people join on a request, the faster it will become reality :)

    You can find it here: http://helpme.viber.com/index.php/Knowledgebase/Article/View/43/9/have-an-idea-for-a-new-feature

    Viber team: is there a preferences menu with an option to set up auto-answer for a configurable list of callers? This capability is critical to my intended use, and would differentiate your product.

    Thanks in advance,
    MeleKai
