    We do not support your device yet.

    But thanks for the suggestion, we will add this device to the user’s wish-list and build a version for it in the future.


  2. @fasal
    You can go to Options > Settings > SIP Accounts to register an account.
    After that you can place VoIP calls via the Phonebook.

    Please note that SIP calling is at the moment only available for Symbian devices, iPhone and PC.

    Hope this information is useful to you, let us know if you have more questions,


  3. Would be good to see a homescreen widget for the N97 showing connection status and waiting chats etc

  4. @chef
    Thanks for you interest!
    The video call is in our road map, but we do not have an estimated time for when it will be working.
    We will announce it when ready.
    Kind regards.

  5. wow great work. I am really shocked about it. One thing I hope if there is a flash icon to inform that there is a message waiting in the main screen.

    Keep it up.

  6. So I just downloaded Nimbuzz for N97 and it is awesome but I’m having trouble adding my facebook contact as when i tried to add it, it showed checking facebook registration and it stuck there for very long. Any idea why and how to fix this?


  7. @Fahad
    thanks for your feedback!
    We are exploring the technical possibilities of adding this feature in the future.

    We are currently having some stability issues with the Facebook gateway.
    Our team is working in order to solve this issue as soon as possible.
    Thanks for the understanding.

  8. I just realize that when i was chatting using nimbuzz and typing a very long chat, i can see the words on the first line but i can’t the words on the second line that i just typed on the message box. so if you make a mistake on the second line, you can’t know until you send it and see it that in the screen you mistype. this is when i’m chatting with my msn contact but i dunno about other. just want to report this hope it get fix. thx

  9. wow, this looks great. but how about adding the option when the app is running in the background to have a pop up window just like we get when a sms/mms/email? the only thing i like about the built in IM in many nokia phones is the IM alert on the homescreen.

  10. @Rich
    Thanks for the suggestion!
    We will study the possibility of adding this in the future.

    Please be patient; our team is doing his best in order to have the facebook issue as soon as possible.

    Kind Regards

  11. Nimbuzz is great application for N97, but I couldn’t make full use of it. I would like to make a call from my skype account to the normal telephone lines but I can’t. I tried to configure the sip accounts and all, but I’ve no idea what to write on those input boxes. could someone tell me how can I make a call from skype account, not between the online users but to those who are not using skype.
    Thank you.

  12. @anjan
    You need to register your Skype account and have credits on your Skype Out account.
    You can top up your credit directly on the Skype website.
    Once you have credit on your Skype account you should be able dial a number form the dial-pad tab.
    Do you get any error message when trying to do that?
    If yes, which one?
    Let us know and we will come back to you as soon as we can.

  13. When i tried to install to N97 it says Update Error
    Any suggestion please, would appreciate your help.
    Thank you

  14. @Ray
    Thanks for reporting this we are aware of the issue and our Team is working on it in order to have this issue fixed in upcoming releases.

  15. I got a N97 & I’ve just upgraded the firmware. But I read from somewhere that even you’ve upgraded the firmware, it doesn’t wipe out everything. I have the same problem with Nimbuzz on the update error.

    So, this is what I did to get Nimbuzz working again. I formatted the internal mass memory and then do a *#7370# reset. After it rebooted, I reformat the mass memory and did another soft reset just to be sure everything is clean. Once it rebooted, I went and downloaded Nimbuzz and it manage to install without any problem. I know it’s quite cumbersome as you need to reinstall everything back. I hope this helps

  16. i tried doing it, but it;s too much complication. i think i ll wait for the new release if they come out with a patch,

  17. @Pete
    Thanks for reporting this issue.
    We are aware of it and our Team is working on it in order to have it solved in the upcoming release.
    We will announce it as soon as the fix is ready to be download in a next update.

  18. Nimbuzz Support team,
    It’s been a while since you announced that you are working on the fix for N97 issue. When will the fix be ready? I believe that I speak on behalf of many N97 owners that we are getting impatient, and some of us have started getting used to alternative application such as Fring. Please put priority on the fix. We beg of you. Thank you.

  19. Thank you so much, but I already got the solution. Well, I was just dialling the local number without country codes, thats why it wasn’t working, and in addition i changed from internet call to dial up or anyways, i choosed the 2nd option and now it’s working gr8, but the voice quality isn’t that good but it’s good enough to understand.
    Thanks Nimbuzz.

  20. Been looking at the E71 and N97, With Nimbuzz when chatting or calling through SKYPE, does it use the 3G and use your cell phone account to hook to internet or look for WIFI wireless hot points through Wlan?



  21. @Michael
    Thanks for checking the status of this issue.
    We are currently working in order to solve this issue.
    We cannot fix a date for it to be implemented yet since it is still underdevelopment.
    Thanks for your understanding

    We are glad to read that you could place a call.
    Let us know if you are facing more issues.

    Thanks & Regards

  22. Hi, I just updated to the latest version 2.0(3) I think but unfortunately I’m getting problems using skypeout. E.g I call to a number outside UK and first time rings * times (nobody answer) next time as soon as I press call again, it says: call ended, even when I try a different number.
    So I have to close Nimbuzz and open it again in order to make calls.
    Silly answers: I do have credit on my skype acc. and have unlimited internet plan with Vodafone.
    BTW I’m using a N97


  23. Nimbuzz Support
    Thanks! I got the new version of Nimbuzz and I am now able to install the application without any problem. Good work! I am back nim-buzzing! Oh, I noticed that the Facebook Chat has been removed from this version? Will you be putting the Facebook Chat into Nimbuzz again in future?

  24. My bad… sorry. The new version has Facebook chat. Everything is working fine now. Thanks!

  25. @Alfonso
    Thanks for your feedback.
    In order to investigate your issue could you provide us with your Skype username and Nimbuzz username please?
    Please let us know and we come back to you as soon as possible.
    Kind regards.

  26. @Michael
    Thanks for your feedback!
    Great to know that all is working fine.
    Please let us know in case you have any other questions or suggestions!
    Kind regards.

  27. “You were signed out from here (desktop) because you signed into a version of Messenger that doesn’t let you sign in to more than one place”.
    Makes me a sad puppy. Otherwise awesome app.

  28. Skype username farhath.farook
    nimbuzz user name i don’t have one cuz i still couldn’t download and install.

  29. @Andy

    Nimbuzz should just work unaltered on the Samsung i8910 HD, since its running on S60 v5, just like the N97.

    maybe an occasional rough edge at worst…

    I’ll try it out later on

  30. @Boggey
    Thanks for your feedback.
    We are looking forward to improve more and more and provide always a great experience with the app.
    keep us always updated!
    Kind regards.

  31. HI,
    I have installed nimbuzz on N97… When using the same and connecting to skype, my voice is not heard to the caller, while i am able to hear their voice clearly… Whats the problem??? Please help!!

  32. @Ray
    To help on your installation problem please try this:
    Install Nimbuzz on the phone memory only.
    If it will no longer install or work properly you should firstly try and update the phone’s firmware to the latest edition using the Nokia PC suite and the usb cable. Also check in ‘manage applications’ that there is nothing in there relating to Nimbuzz before you try re-installing – delete if there is.
    Please try it and let us know if you don’t succeed.
    Kind regards.

  33. @KMK
    Thanks for your feedback. To be able to investigate your problem could you please let us know your type of connection and Nimbuzz and Skype ID please? Thanks and regards!

  34. Hi,

    I just bought Nokia N97, I wanted to install yahoo messenger so i was googling and i saw your blog url which sounded cool to me, My question is.. Im from India and here GPRS connection and its price are pretty high compared to other countries, So if i install Nimbuzz and make calls through Skype (I have skype credit already) will it require bandwidth for the calls? or just it dials through the phone line?

  35. @Jeff
    Indeed it will require internet connection to proceed with the calls. Internet calling through GPRS is not recommended because you don’t have enough quality. We recommend you to call while using wifi or 3G connection.
    Let us know if you have more questions!
    Thanks and regards!

  36. Thanks for your prompt reply, Can you tell me more about 3G connection? I don’t know what exactly it means.

  37. @Jeff
    Thanks for your interest.
    3G allows simultaneous use of speech and data services and higher data rates, please check with your Operator and network provider if you have this option enabled.

  38. Nice app Nimbuzz
    I want to know what will happen if I update my phone’s firmware. Will I need to re-install nimbuzz all over, I use nokia n97.

  39. hi, i am intreted on buying a n97, but i didnt found a place that said that the n97 has voip built in. The some people mention nimbuzz and all the features, i installed it in the nokia e71 and its really good, but my porblem is that i have my own voip server, so i have my own sip configurations. So i would like to know if nimbuzz have the ability to configure personal voip servers in order to buy the n97

  40. @Obi
    Thanks for your comment.
    If you replace the firmware of your device, all apps should be deleted but if Nimbuzz is installed on the memory card it might stay.
    Let us know if you have more questions
    You can add your own SIp provider (in this case yourself) going to the tab Calls> SIP> and add your details on “Other SIP providers”
    Let us know if you have more questions.

    Currently we support files sent through Nimbuzz to Yahoo contacts but not the other way around.
    The avatar picture is supported on the Windows Live and the speed to load it depends on the amount of contacts you have on your list, your internet connection speed and the MSN itself. Please wait a bit more to load the avatars and let us know in case the problem persists.
    Let us know if you have more questions!
    Kind regards.

    First you need to connect your communities on Nimbuzz.

    On settings > go to communities > and save your account details from each community on Nimbuzz

    This way you will connect to each IM community you have: all and once.

    After you are connected please go to:

    ad a contact > choose the community your contact belongs to > and ad the contact

    The contact will receive a notification and accept your friend request.

    After it you will have the contact on your Nimbuzz list.

    Kind regards.

  60. Dear Sir,
    I download nimbuzz to my mobile Nokia N97 and identify my accounts yahoo and hotmail and they were working extent.

    My nimbuzz username: emad_bakr.
    Thank you for your support

  61. @emad bakr
    Your Nimbuzz communities are connected to your IM accounts and it includes not only your contacts but the login details you have as well.
    Every time you change your password on the communities you have to change it on your Nimbuzz settings.

    Please go to Settings> Community settings> disconnect your Yahoo and MSN accounts

    Type the new account details again with the new passwords and connect your Yahoo and MSN again on your Nimbuzz.

    Let us know if you have more questions.

    Kind regards.

  62. Hi there
    Thank you for your reply
    Regarding to your instruction I deactivated my yahoo and MSN accounts and reactivated again using nimbuzz PC software and they shown connected but not importing my contact list from both programs.
    Emad Bakr

  63. @emad bakr
    Thanks for the information provided.
    Can you let us know how many contacts do you have on those communities?
    Have you checked the status of those contacts on MSN client itself?
    Do you get any error message? or are you just unable to see your contacts?
    Let us know!
    Your devices is using a Symbian version of Nimbuzz.
    You can register your SIP account to make calls by:
    going to Options > Settings > SIP Accounts to register an account.
    Let us know if you have more questions.

  64. hello Nimbuzz, 10x for the application :) I have Nokia N97 and install it but have some problems adding skype. When I sign in Nimbuzz it writes “Oooops. We don’t seem to be able to sign in to skype. Please try again later while we are looking into it” – so I tried for few days till now, still not possible. nevertheless when I try to add Skype from Options>add detail, it writes: “Adding individual Skype contacts is not supported.”
    Have to admit that during the first instalation I made a misstake in the skype password – is this the problem and how can I solve it? Please help me this is one of the most important for me adds in the program :(
    Thank you!

  65. @Milena
    It could be that the applications cannot log you in on Skype cause the password is incorrect.
    We suggest you to go to Options> Settings> Communities>Skype
    Unregister your Skype account (remove your details)
    And register it again with the correct password.
    Let us know if you are still facing problems after that.

    You can download Nimbuzz from the Nokia OVI Store, or:
    directly from your phone browser going to, or from our Nimbuzz website:

    Kind Regards

  66. How can I delete my login id & password on the application (installed on the phone)? I want it to ask my login id everytime I use it on the phone. Otherwise, anyone holding my phone can login with my id.

  67. @Dee
    When you log out if you do the following:
    Menu> Exit
    Your password will be remembered for the next time you login.
    If you do:
    Me> Status> sign out
    Your password will NOT be remembered.
    Thanks Regards

  69. hi I just got nimbuzz and I can log into my facebook and skype accounts but everytime I try to login to yahoo or google or msn it keeps telling me to check my username or password. Please help

  70. When I try to add my Facebook chat friends, I get a message each time from Facebook asking for my date of birth to confirm my account with them, so I give it however I never get a reply back – why is this?

  71. @dr ronish
    Thanks for letting us know.
    Could you please let us know more information in order to assist you on this issue?
    Which internet connection are you using?
    Are you able to navigate on internet via your mobile’s browser?
    Please check if your wifi/operator doesn’t block socket connections as Nimbuzz application requires socket connection to work.
    Kind regards.
    Thanks for reporting to us.
    We are aware of this limit of 400 contacts per Facebook user and although the rest are not shown on your list they are still able to see you and chat as well. We are working to have it fixed as soon as possible.
    Let us know if you have more questions.
    Kind regards.
    Thanks for reporting to us.
    Currently yahoo, Gtalk and MSN are working fine on Nimbuzz.
    Please check if your passwords on these communities are up to date on Nimbuzz Settings.
    Nimbuzz is connected on real time on your communities and if you have your password change on the communities itself you have to update it also on Nimbuzz.
    On Nimbuzz please go to:
    Settings> Community Settings> MSN> disconnect> enter the login details up to date> connect

    Follow these steps to all the communities that are not working and you will see that your contacts will load then.
    Try it and let us know in case your problem persists.
    Kind regards.
    When filling in the correct birth date (the one matching with what you have on your Facebook itself) you should be able to login and load your Facebook contacts normally on Nimbuzz. You don’t get any reply action on this.
    Please let us know if you have more questions.
    Kind regards

  72. Dear Support Team,

    I’m facing a problem while sending a file through my Nimbuzz account i’m getting an error messege ( Feature not supported ) My phone N97, Version 2.0.3 rev 1545 the latest one.

  74. Hi,

    I’ve been trying to connect Nimbuzz using my GPRS on my N97 but it keep showing connection failed. Retry or go to Nimbuzz web.
    Kindly advise.

  75. @J
    Nimbuzz odes not connect with Http connection just socket and if this one is not available it will direct you to the wap site.
    Hope this information helps.

  76. @ escrich. Thanks for your reply but i dont really understand. I downloaded the application from nokia ovi. Nimbuzz shld be able to work on my phone unless this application is not compatible with gprs and only compatible via wlan which does not wake any sense. Anyone have any idea how and what do i need to do to rectify this problem?

  77. @J
    Our application will not connect you if the type of connection you are using is Http.
    If this is the case and the connection fails, like it is happening to you the application itself will re-direct you to the Wap version of Nimbuzz, which you can use with that type of connection.
    We recommend you to check with your network provider the type of connection used.

  78. for some reason i cant load my contacts for facebook chat and when i try to reactivate the account it says that a server error has happened… Any way to solve this?

  79. I have been trying to log on Facebook chat with Nimbuzz the entire day and it says there’s am internal server error. When I try to delete the Facebook account to resign, it says the same….What can I do to fix it?

  80. If i select celullar to make a call, does this use my phone network i.e call charges, or does it come off the data plan?

  81. hi.

    I am trying to access facebook on nimbuzz but I am getting no response. i have also tried logging onto the web nimbuzz and there doesn’t seem to be an option for facebook. Have you removed it or is there something wrong with my account?

    Thanks in advance

  82. @cnej
    If you select the “cellular” the cost will be charged by your provided not deducted from your data plan.
    Dial-Up VoIP was a feature we used to offer for devices that are not able to make VoIP calls, connecting the internet call to a local land line and then to your destination caller.
    Currently this feature is no linger offered by Nimbuzz
    Let us know if you have more questions.

  90. Hi,

    How to configure SIP accounts in nokia 3230. if i goto optoins in nimbuzz application, (options->accounts). there is no option to SIP account.

  91. @megha
    SIP and VoIP calling is available on iPhone, Windows Mobile and Symbian S60 3rd generation.
    Your device is S60 2nd generation, since it does not fulfill the technical requirements, is not possible for you to make calls via SIP account.
    Let us know if you have more questions.

  92. Nimbuzz frequently just logs out and dc/s, kinda weird, and also it needs the availability of blocking /deleting MSN contacts as you can with normal msn. other than that its a fuckin SWEET app, and you people have done a RAD job making it work for us so THANK YOU, and yeah i’ve been votin in the app awards =D

  93. @Kezdog
    Please check that the disconnection issues are not related to your network.
    In regards of the MSN contacts, we are currently investigating this issue.
    We expect to have it solved soon.
    Kind Regards

  94. i have iphone but i am not able to insert Nimbuzz credits i:e i am getting the password and code from the card holder i want to put in the iphone please help me out with this problem

    how should i insert it

  95. @ali
    Could you please be more specific?
    To buy credits you do not need any code or number. to which code are you referring?
    You just have to login on your Nimbuzz account, Go to the “Call” tab > Click on the top bar on the “Call” tab > Select NimbuzzOut as your VoIP provider> Click on Buy Credit > Follow the instructions on screen.
    You can also do it directly on our website:
    Kind Regards

    Are you behind a firewall or in a restricted network?
    Are you able to call to echo123 (test call from skype) without problems?
    Since when are you experiencing this issues?

  103. How to receive files on skype in nimbuzz on nokia n97? i have a notification that someone has sent me a file, but where is that file? how to open it? where can I find online gallery? thx

  104. Hi

    I installed Nimbuzz in my E72 i was so delighted with the features with yahoo… the only thing is that i added skype and it was successful but when my wife called me using her skype at her pc, i can hear her but they cant hear me and i dont see her in my online list unless she will send me a chat message thats the only time i can reply, unlike the yahoo in nimbuzz i can see all the people who are online. please help me

  105. @John Medel
    Thanks for your comment.
    In regards of the presence, sometimes it takes a while till you are able to see your contacts status, it is good to check if they are online sending a short chat message.
    In regards of the sound issue, could you let us know which type of connection are you using?
    Are you or the other person in a restricted network or behind a firewall?
    Let us know!

  106. I have N97 mini and having my vodafone live GPRS connect. Just downloaded Nimbuzz. It installed the software perfectly and working very fine when it connected to web. But when I click the installed application and when it is connected through the internet(Vodafone live) it shows error message it is not connecting and retry… Kindly answer…

  107. @rajesh
    Could you please be more specific?
    Which exact error message do you receive?
    When does it appear?
    Does your provider allow to just browse on the internet or are you also allowed to download and connect to other applications that use socket connection?
    Let us know!

  108. Thanks for your response…

    After installing the software when i click the Nimbuzz on my application it tries connecting after some minute it shows

    “connection failed,retry or go to web”
    My service provider also allows me to browse,download applications and I am not sure about the socket connection what you are mentioning about for connecting applications.

    My doubt “is there any special access point setting to connect your server?”

    Also when i go to web it is connecting and working fine….

  109. @rajesh
    Thanks for your fast reply.
    If you can’t connect to Nimbuzz servers can be due to some reasons mostly related to your internet connection.

    Please check if the internet connection you use doesn’t block socket connections. Currently Nimbuzz application only works via socket and if you use a http connection for example you won’t be able to connect and suggest you to use the wap version which works with http connection, going on your phone browser to

  110. @hmorris70
    It is currently not possible to receive files from Skype contacts.
    However is possible to send them.

  111. Hi,

  116. Hi,

    Nimbuzz got easily installed on my Nokia 5800 and worked fine also. But after using and exiting the Nimbuzz application if i try to make a normal call to any no.. i get a continuous beep sound during the call? After using Nimbuzz i have to restart my Mobile to solve the problem, could you plz explain why is it so?


  117. Nimbuzz is a great software. I use the latest version mainly to chat with my friends using chinese. However, this version has a special thing that when I type chinese characters, it will bounce me back to the main chat screen again. Only if I type a english alphabet or a space, the issue does not come up. Do you know why?

  118. @Arthur
    Could you please send us a mail to with the following information?:
    Which Nimbuzz version are you using.
    Model and Brand of the device in use.
    How to reproduce this issue.
    Please indicate if this happens when you chat with any contact or when is from an specific community.

  119. I have the same problem as Arthur.
    Nokia N97, latest version of Nimbuzz
    on Three Network in UK.
    happened to all the contacts in my list

  120. @Chris
    can you let us know if this happens only with the first letter that you write in a chat or does it happen anywhere?
    Thanks for your time.

  121. Yes, it only happens on the first character….because you won’t have chance to type the second character!

  122. @Arthur
    Thanks for the update!
    We will work in order to have this fixed in the upcoming release!

  123. Dear Support! ;)

  132. There is a new version of Nimbuzz for N97. It works perfectly now by entering chinese characters. Thanks!

  133. I have had Nimbuzz a while and I note that alot of people are having problems with it only showing about 400 friends in there list and only those names that start with the letters A through to J
    Looking through the messages here it looks like it was reported back in October last year.
    Just wondered if there is any update on this. anyone with the names starting with the letters L through Z only come up with numbers and I dont have a clue who they are. My phone is a N97 if thats of any use

  134. @Paul Winnie Cutts
    We are aware of this.
    Is a technical limitations in which we are working on.

  136. @m
    Yes, it is a limitation that we just show 400Facebook contacts per user.
    Our team will work in order to increase that number.

  137. @feros
    On your phone go to MENU- TOOLS – APPLICATION MANAGER. Check your setting by going to OPTIONS – SETTINGS and your will see Software Certification, set this to ALL if it isn’t already set. And if you also see the option ONLINE CERT CHECK set it to off.

    Now make sure your phone date is correct. As the latest Nimbuzz was released about 2-3 weeks ago if your phone date is earlier then 3weeks ago you will get a certification error telling you to check your phone date or something like that.

    So just be sure your phone date is correct and that you downloaded the most recent version of Nimbuzz.

    Hope this helps.

  141. Hi Nimbus Team,

    I just got a Nokia E72 from my brother.. and i tried to install Nimbus.. i am able to download it and when i am trying to install, its showing “Update Error” please can you help me in sorting out this problem.


  142. @sithu T.A
    This error message normally occurs when you press the download button
    twice. Please press ‘download’ once and wait for the download to

    Does the error persist?

  143. @Dileep
    Currently we support Video Calling on Nimbuzz PC version 2.0 but not on Mobile devices.
    We are working in order to provide this feature in other platforms soon.

  144. cant access facebook contacts getting message “adding individual facebook chat contact is not supported.” again and again…..
    pls help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  145. @shoyeb
    Adding New FB contacts is not possible via nimbuzz, you have to do that directly from facebook.

  146. I am also facing the same problem as shoyeb commented on February 12th, 2012. The facebook account is registered with Nimbuzz, but while checking for the contacts from facebook, the message is displaying “adding individual facebook chat contact is not supported.”
    And as queralt escrich replied, that adding new fb contact is not possible. So, a new user of Nimbuzz will have to suffer from the facebook chat from Nimbuzz? Or there is any other option to synchronize facebook contacts with Nimbuzz?

  147. @Mukesh – You can not add a Facebook contact directly from Nimbuzz. You need to add the contact on your Facebook account and when you add the Facebook community to Nimbuzz this contact will automatically appear on the contact list. Thanks!!

  148. My Nokia n97 mini gets off when i dialed or recieve any call from my nimbuzz contects. i hate this problem.
