  1. You forgot to mention that your implementation of Push Notification only lasts for 30 minutes.

    Please, what use is that?

    Are we supposed to run the Nimbuzz app ever half an hour to maintain a connection.

  2. very nice one .. but the mac app needs tabs badly!

    and would be cool to connect names / friends at different communities to one name.

    aaaaaaand :D at my iphone 2g the “be online” function doesn´t work and i don´t know why .. same thing with the push notification ..

  3. Great job! Thanks guys. Only thing I’d like to see is to be able to stay logged in longer than 30 minutes. Other than that: you beat eBuddy with this release :)

  4. I am disappointed: push is working but i don’t like it very much. I would prefer a pop-up instead of this balloon tip which can be overseen very quickly. Both would be even better.

    After receiving a push notification, I log on into nimbuzz and see a msg from e.g. “35436456″ – but nimbuzz does show me the equivalent icq contact. How sould I know who this number is?

  5. @Diana
    Currently we have some stability issues with the Facebook gateway.
    We are working in order to have the solution implemented very soon.
    Thanks for your patience and comprehension.
    Kind regards.

  6. I was hoping for skype push notifications, as well as for skype call and sip call notifications. SIP calls still don’t allow dmtf to interact with ivrs or with voicemail options.

    With regards to push notifications, 30 Mins is really bad. For me that is the same as not having push notifications at all.

    For now I am going to continue to use beehjive im which is much better for push notifications.

  7. Push needs Alerts, Sounds and Badges to be useful. If you are not looking at your iPhone you cannot tell when you’ve got a new notification – even when wearing headphones. Also, you need to know who a new push alert is from before deciding if it needs to be answered right away.
    30 mins is hopeless.

  8. @Ronnie
    Thanks for your feedback and comment.
    Currently Skype push notification is not available due to some specific technical requirements.
    In regards of the 30minutes Push notification, we are working on a new way of keeping people online in the Nimbuzz community for much longer times and are confident to come up with this in the near future.
    Regards

  9. Good about the push i upgraded today but you need to increase the time to 24hours like beejive.. den d push can be can do its work..can be login in ever 30mins to keep push working.

    Is there a problem with facebook chat?

  10. well am using nimbuzz because i can get my yahoo on it but 30mins push is not good at all… beejives is wat am still using but love nimbuzz… you guys can do better than 30 stay online time limit

  11. Facebook contacts loaded but when I exit the app and then re-enter no contacts are displayed. Now I cannot get any contacts to display?

  12. Works great on the Mac… the only reason I’m not going to use it more is it is lacking SKYPE. If it had that.. it would never leave my desktop.
    kind of a shame really.

  13. I am updated to the new version of nimbuzz on my 2g iphone with the older 2.2 software and everything works however i believe i found a bug. When i click on one of my contacts and hit the photo button the pop up happens for take photo, choose existing photo, and cancel. Problem is that the “cancel” button can’t be selected. I have to hit choose existing photo and then cancel and it’ll be fine. I like the new format though. Good work.

  19. I’m just curious as to how Nimbuzz stores your IM account passwords on the iPhone. Are these stored locally, on the device, or on Nimbuzz servers?

  20. Cool. Thx for putting this app out for Mac! One question: When will Skype be enabled for the desktop app? Or are there legal issues?

  21. Works fine on the iPhone but why is there no Skype-support in the Mac version? Skype with Nimbuzz in Mac verion plus tabs would be awesome!

  22. Really nice work! But like fs, I’d like to see Skype implemented as soon as possible – can you give us any updates on that matter? And how about different contact list styles (something simple & sleek, that fades into the background, just the names)? That’s one thing I really hate about the Skype interface: they refuse to give the users more options!

  23. @fs
    Thanks for your feedback.
    We do not have present plans on implementing Skype on the Mac client.
    We will consider this possibility for the future improvements.

  28. I’ve been waiting for this. I’ve had Nimbuzz on my iPod Touch for a few months and love it. Now a version for Mac? I love you guys!

  29. @unclebarry
    We have the option to enable the push notification sound.
    Go to iPhone setings > Nimbuzz > turn on the sounds
    Please try and let us know in case it doesn’t work.
    Kind regards!

  30. I use an iPod Touch with 3.0 software update, and Nimbuzz is not showing any of my aol contact as online, when in fact they are online, not invisible ( i logged into aol and could see them). To get more interesting, i can even send them IM through Nimbuzz when I know they are online, and receive Im’s from and have a coversation, but they still show as offline in my numbuzz contacts. any ideas?

  31. also, if i log into nimbuzz here, it shows the correct status of online contact. but still not on my ipod.

  32. @Ronnie
    Thanks for your feedback and suggestions.
    Currently we do not support Skype and SIP call on push notifications.
    We are studying the possibility of adding Skype in the future but we do not have plans for SIP calls notifications.
    We do not have SIP calls that allow dmtf to interact with ivrs or with voicemail but we will consider it for the future improvements.
    About the 30 min push notification, we are working to improve the duration in the future.
    Thanks and regards!

  34. @Andi
    Yes. PowerPC machine are only three years old… I was very sad when I saw that Nimbuzz was not universal binary.
    Loving Apple means lovin even PPC…

  35. I’ve been trying to connect to Nimbuzz on my MacBook for the past 2 days and it gives me this error message:

    ”A network error occurred when we tried to sign you in. Please try again later.”

    Well, I’ve been trying to connect since, but no joy. Any solutions for this?

  36. I upgraded my Ipod Touch to 3.0 OS! I had and older version of Nimbuzz and everything worked fine! Unfortunately after I have upgraded my Nimbuzz to the latest new version (which said OS 3.0 tested). I could connect to my account (Skype, Facebook, ICQ) just once, after that Nimbuzz says “online” but all my contacts are displayed as offline… I have deleted all my data and accounts, and then tried to add them. I just get the message saying “Connecting”….and that’s it…I can’t add any account right now… What had happened??? The older version was much better…
    Thanx!!!!!

  37. cnt get push to work
    1. i only use nimbuzz and no other chat pgrm
    2. it’s activated in settings

  38. Compared with the alfa version (for mac) is good. But the developer needs to be improved Nimbuzz 1. Not localized interface 2. Not a nice interface 3. Settings complicated to use, not usability 4. No support spell-checking 5. Why there is still no forum Nimbuzz for Mac???

  39. Hi there..i would like to say that im a Nimbuzz user for a year wirh my 1st iPhone..it was sooooo great to join my friends from MSN messenger Google talk Yahoo and Facebook in same time!!

  48. Dear Nimbuzz guys!

    I once again downloaded and installed Nimbuzz, it’s still not working! :-( I get the same message:

    ”A network error occurred when we tried to sign you in. Please try again later.”

    My internet connection is fine. I was happily using the Nmbuzz RC1 on my mac. Only after I downloaded and installed the full and final version, I’m getting this error message.

    Are there any network settings goofed up? I’m a new mac user, so I’m still figuring this out.

    Further, I’ve been using Nimbuzz on my E71 for some months now. I’m really missing it on my mac.. Pleeeeese help!!

  49. Thanks for the amazing app.
    I’ve got three requests tho. The first one has been asked for numerous times but I’ll add my vote to the others and that is longer time. To stay online,
    Secondly please add a toggle for the sign off sound. I thought that my iPhone was hunted. I didn’t know where that megistic sound was coming from. I went as far as restoring my phone because of it. Because in nowhere it tells you about any sound being omitted after the app has been closed
    lastly please add a notification ballon or popup. The little badge is easily missed. I’ve lost so many msgs because i didn’t know I got any

    thanks for the wonderful app. And good luck

    regards

    A

  50. Nimbuzz latest version is too good, push notification works just fine. But I’m only getting alert sound and badge, but no message alerts like the one in the picture. is there any setting to enable message alerts (push)?

  51. @jordan
    Thanks for your suggestions! We will forward to our Technical Team and study the possibility of adding it in the future. Cheers!

  52. how can i download face book and use it easy. i reallt mixedup but want to use it too much and how can i go to chatroom with nimbuzz pc???? tanx

  53. @Naushad
    Please note that the pop-up window only works for messages, not for chats. You can change the settings for alerts, sounds and badges on the iPhone settings.
    Hope it helps. Cheers!

  54. @Priscilla
    Thank you for your reply.
    I have one more issue, if I get a push notification and when I open Nimbuzz, it shows the sender’s address in ‘username%server’ format (eg. someone%gmail.com), and when I reply to that message, they r not receiving it…

  55. @Com3
    Thanks for your feedback.
    To turn off sounds, alerts and badges please change on your iPhone settings. We do have the pop – up notification for messages and calls, only not for chat. The reason for this is because we wanted to keep the quality on the usability of another features on the device while using the push. But we will consider your suggestion for the future improvements. Kind regards!

  56. Hi, I was so glad to get Nimbuzz into my Mac, but I sadly removed it… until you’ve added Skype support, Adium will stay my favorite…

    You still in my phone ;) push could get longer than 30′ and I don’t get the notifications… but thks for it anyway !

  57. Wow really im so happy to use nimbuzz.. it works well and i love nimbuzz! can we make free calls here using my phone nokia 3220? anyway im really so happy to use nimbuzz for chatting and its very fast and clear!
    Thanks nimbuzz! and go up and up..

  58. hi !
    i am looking for a version compatible with mac osX 10.4.11 .
    anything available ?

    best regards
    ayman

  59. I’m talking about the sign out sound. Can u put a Geiger to that. It’s no where to be found.

    Also please let us know when will you be allowing us to stay longer online.

    Thanks

  60. @Sawyer
    Thanks for your feedback. We will consider your suggestion for the future implementations, but we still cannot fix a date for it to be ready yet. The longer duration on the push notification is already on our roadmaps. About the push notifications: aren’t you receiving notifications? Are you using iPhone or iPod? If iPhone, please make sure you have the new 3.0 OS and your notifications are enabled on the iPhone settings.
    Let us know if your problem persists!
    Kind regards.

  61. @nilani
    Thanks for your feedback!
    Great to know all works fine!
    You can make free VOIP calls to Nimbuzz buddies and to other communities such as Skype, MSN, GTalk, Yahoo.
    You only have to save your account details of the respective communities you want to call in Nimbuzz.
    Using SIP, you can make cheap calls to a landline and regular mobile phones. With Nimbuzz SIP support, you can make Internet calls via the Nimbuzz Phonebook feature by adding any SIP provider you already use. Costs depend on your SIP provider rates.
    SIP calling is mostly used to make cheap international calls.
    Hope it helps!

  62. @soheil
    To sign up to Facebook please check: http://www.facebook.com
    The chatrooms on PC were temporarily disabled but we will enable it soon. We will announce when available.
    You still can use the chatroom feature on Nimbuzz Mobile for phones that support Symbian, Java and Windows Mobile.
    Kind regards.

  64. I’m using iPhone 3G with FW 3.0…
    I use WiFi to connect to Internet…
    I can receive/reply to all communities when I’m inside Nimbuzz, but when I get a push notification and open Nimbuzz, from address is shown like ‘someone%gmail.com’ or ‘someone%hotmail.com’. When I reply to those messages, it appears like the message has gone, but the other person is not receiving it…

  65. thanks for your software,I have one question:When I dial
    a phone NO. from China to Russia over Skype,it put through very well ,but when Switchboard asked me to input extension No.,I do not konw where to input it,expecting your answer ,thanks very much

  66. The iPhone app is cool but I think the Mac version needs some more work. A couple of things 1. Tabs for the windows 2. Be able to see my MSN contacts avatars 3. File sending 4. Hide groups 5. MSN emoticons 6. Hide friends statuses

    Looking forward to these updates. Other than that, good job!

  67. I’ve been using Nimbuzz for iPhone for a while now, and it is easily the best IM client out there. My favorite part is the Skype and Gizmo5/SIP support. Having the IM clients and Voip clients in one app is awesome.

    A few suggestions though for improvement – for Skype and the SIP phone parts, it would be great if you had more options available during a call. The one that is absolutely necessary is a keypad for touchtones during a call. A mute and speakerphone option would be nice as well.

    The only other thing I could ask for would be google voice support. Ideally, if there was a way to link the dialpad/phone feature of nimbuzz to google voice, so when you dial a number, it uses google voice to dial the number and actually rings back your cellphone. If you did this, it would DOMINATE all other communication apps, and you could easily charge money for it.

  68. Thanks for Nimbuzz for iPhone.
    I was waiting for Push notifications for a long time.
    BUT why a max limit of 30 minutes??? It is way too short! “IM+” lets choose between 10 minutes, up to 3 days! I think 12 hours is a minimum to be usefull.
    Also, I only get sound+badge, no message on top of the springboard :( despite having enabled all in the push preferences…
    Other complaint: launch time is too long (“connecting…”) is it so that we can read the “Nimbuzz loves Apple” ad???

  69. BTW, I got the same bug as Naushad about the Gmail contacts… It seems like there is trouble in notifications with the encoding of “@” that is in “%40″, so Nimbuzz thinks they are 2 different peoples :(

  70. @nethan wang
    Thanks for your interest. Currently we do not support
    DTMF, so you cannot send tones while typing a number or a key.
    Thanks and regards.

    @sd
    The longer duration on the push notification is already in our roadmaps, but we can’t fix a date for it to be ready yet. The launch time for Nimbuzz depends on your internet connection,number of contacts you have and on your phone processing power.

    @sd @Naushad
    Thanks for reporting this issue. We will check it in order to fix it as soon as possible. Thanks and regards!

  71. @sd
    To enable the alerts please go to your iPhone settings>Nimbuzz and turn on the alerts.
    Hope it helps
    Kind regards.

  72. I was waiting so patiently for Push on the iPhone but to only stay online for 30 minutes is almost the same as having no push support. Really! Think about it! I think you guys are great and you can absolutely do much better!

  73. I like the new development but I’m a little disappointed that this application seems to be more appealing visually than the symbian version. Please help us, the symbian, users who make up a huge chunk of the mobile market by making our equally as beautiful

  74. i changed my email password.
    can anyone tell me how i change it on the phone now. plz
    there don seem to be any option to do it.

  75. Great job, up to now I could not find any other IM app near close to Nimbuzz.
    Only two things that I would like to see improved: push notification for at least 12 hours and pop up for chats and not only messages (it took me a long time to realize I didn’t have a problem on push for my iphone but it was Nimbuzz that didn’t send pop ups).
    Also, Im using backgrounder to run nimbuzz in background for now, it would be nice to have the badge also showing up even when we are running the program in background…
    Thanks,
    Gus

  76. Thanks for the release, guys. Nimbuzz is the best IM client for the iPhone – especially with it’s Skype support and push notifications. My biggest gripe (apart from what was already said) is that the client takes too long to load even after you have told it to “stay online”. I know the app is closed and has to reopen again but waiting 10-15 seconds just to read one message is a little too much. If you have to load all my contact list data and all every time I start the application, why not just store the data on my device. If this gets fixed, the iPhone version will finally be on par with the multitasking Symbian version you have.

  77. @Andrew
    Thanks for your feedback, we will take that into consideration.

    @sanj
    If you have changed you password in any of the registered communities, and you cannot lo on them now, you have to go on MAC: Contacts> Communities > Select the comunity and log in your new password.
    On the iPhone you have to go to Menu > Settings> Communities> Select the Community and log in the new credentials.

    @Gus
    Thanks for your feedback!
    Indeed our Push notification lasts for 30 minutes; we are working on a new way of keeping people online in the Nimbuzz community for a longer time and are confident to come up with this in the near future.

    @Kaloyan
    Thanks for your feedback!
    We will take that into account in order to improve our product.
    Can you let us know how long does it take for you to load (approximately)? and how many contacts you might have?
    This will help us while developing.

  79. Hello, first I want to say that this app is very impressive, but I have a problem, well I think is a problem, the push notifications don’t show me any pop-up, only a badge on the app icon, is this correct? at the notifications option shows me that the option is on. Other thing is that I would like to know how the calls work for ipod touch, the call option that is under the chat option. Thanks

  80. @sawyer
    Great! Please keep us updated. Regards.
    @iascdu
    Thanks for letting us know. Please note that the pop-up window only works for calls and messages, not for chats. We decided to leave it this way to preserve the usability of other features in the phone at the same time without interruption. To make VOIP calls you only press call on any of your contacts able to receive calls and you will call. Using SIP, you can make cheap calls to a landline and regular mobile phones. With Nimbuzz SIP support, you can make Internet calls via the Nimbuzz Phonebook feature by adding any SIP provider you already use. Costs depend on your SIP provider rates.
    SIP calling is mostly used to make cheap international calls. A list of SIP providers can be found in the link below:
    http://www.sipcenter.com/sip.nsf/html/Service+Providers
    Hope it helps.
    Cheers!

  81. @GHUFRAN
    Yo can download the application from our website and install it. After it you will find Nimbuzz in your applications Menu or programs and by clicking on Nimbuzz icon you can open it and sign up creating an username and password. As you finish it you will login and you will be able to enjoy Nimbuzz.
    Please let us know if you still have problems about this.
    Thanks and regards!

  82. Great product. Using it over Fring on my iPod touch as I can on “slealth” mode.

    To echo a couple of things mentioned:
    – push notification. Alert MSG does not appear on the board.
    – longer times for push notification

    Thanks

  83. @Priscilla
    I have maybe around 20-30 contacts for AIM and ICQ each + 40ish GTalk ones + about 440 Facebook friends. Out of those, I usually have around 25-35 online. This being said, the client takes about 10 seconds to load on AT&T’s 3G network. Now, 10 seconds isn’t all that much but to view a single IM, it may be. I would be way cool to have your contact list load instantly – just as the built-in address book does. I think it would make a world of difference in terms of user interaction quality if it did so.
    I am no expert in iPhone development but I would try to cache/save as much info on exit and, upon reload, refresh it as needed. This should cut down on the loading times and, as an added benefit, would reduce the amount of data being sent back and forth and go easier on the battery. Speaking of, anything you can do to reduce the power usage of the program would be more than appreciated by the users. :D We all know the iPhone doesn’t have the best battery life…
    At any rate, this is a great app, so thanks for creating it — and keep up the good work.

  84. Awesome update!
    The only thing is that the 30 minutes time limit for push notification makes it nearly useless!
    I want to stay online for 24 hrs or so, so that I can always be connected.

    that shouldn’t be any problem from the programming side and I read few comments which request the same.

    I dont get any message pop-ups but the push service seems to work just fine…. strange

  85. @BUGOY8
    Thanks for your feedback and support! Much appreciate it!
    We will take your feedback into account when working in order to improve our application.
    @Kaloyan
    Thanks for the information provided.
    We will use it in order to investigate and improve the time to load the contact list.
    we agree with you that the time should be shorter and that’s why we are working in order to improve that, but this also depends on the number of contacts you have on your list and the type of connection you are using.
    Many Thanks & Regards!

  86. Mac version freezes up on my Intel Mac running Leopard quite frequently, without any real reason.

  87. @Dan Alexander
    In order to investigate this issue and solve it, can you please let us know the following?
    Which MAC version are you using?
    When does the application freeze? Are you using any specific feature when it happens? Chatting or calling?
    do you get any error message? If yes, which one?
    Let us know and we will come back to you as soon as we can.
    Regards

  88. @lodi
    Thanks for the feedback! Much appreciated!
    we will take into consideration while working in an improved version that has a longer push notification.
    Cheers!

  89. seems very nice… of course there are bugs to be fixed, but it’s still an early version. would be nice if you could sort your contacts by status, see smilies and color (not color codes) in the personal messages (windows messenger) and skype + video support would be great too of cours. however, it’s one of the best solutions for mac, it hink, even if adium is even more “mature”, you do have some advantages. go on please :)

  90. I have a problem with Nimbuzz on the Iphone 3GS, it does not automatically connect to the communities. It only connects (to all) after I first make it forget my login details of one (for example skype) and reenter them. Then it connects to all communities. Is this a known issue? Regards!

  91. @mr.x
    Can you please be more specific on your quer?
    Are you able to download the application?
    Do you get any error message when trying to log in? If yes, which one?
    When does exactly that error message appears?
    What does it exactly say?
    Let us know and we will come back to you as soon as we can.

    @Bas
    Thanks for reporting this issue, we are researching that in order to fix this issue as soon as possible.
    In order to investigate that, can you let us know the following?:
    Which Communities do you have registered?
    How many contacts do you have in your contact list per community?
    Many thanks!!

    Regards!

  92. @joshi
    Thanks for your usggestions!
    We will take them into account while we keep working in order toimprove our application!
    Thanks!

  93. Andi, I’m registered in: Skype (96 contacts), Windows live (250), Facebook (90), Hyves (135). If I select to show offline contacts, it will show them all, but never anybody online. Thanks for your help!

  94. I have issues with Nimbuzz conncting with my Skype account since the last update. It used to connect and tell me the balance in my Skype account now it fails. Are you aware of this issue?

    Thank you.

  95. Hi, I have a little problem with Push-Notifications. I have a iPhone 3Gs with OS 3 and the uptodate Nimbuzz app. All other apps display screen-notifications regularly. Nimbuzz app doesn’t. When i am online with nimbuzz and nimbuzz app is not running… and if i get a message… sounds and displaying numbers of received messages work fine. but the screen-message “nimbuzz.. you have received a message from…: …..” doesn’t pop up.
    In settings, the screen-messages are activated.
    I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled it on the iphone, but screen-messages still dont pop up.
    Can you help me please?
    Thank you very much for your help!

  96. It’s good to see that you support the Mac platform, but, like Wavex, I wonder why this app is Intel only. I understand that many programmers, esp. developers of games, codecs, video processing etc. don’t want to release their software for PowerPC anymore, as it means a lot more work to do so. But porting a chat client like Nimbuzz to PowerPC wouldn’t require more effort than simply checking “Universal Binary” before compiling. Even if only 15 % of Mac users have PPC machines these days, it would mean you would reach 15 % more users.
    I am quite happy with Adium now and will stick to it, but it would have been great to finally have an alternative.

  97. I installed nimbuz on MacBook with Mac Os 10.5 and when I try to login to nimbus, I provide userid nad password
    It returns nn error: Networl error occured … try again later.

  98. Hi,
    I agree on the 30mins is useless. Maybe the mesg can be set to pop up instead of needing to go into the program before u can see the mesg.

    One more thing, I found chatting to skype users works but more laggy compared to the actual skype for iPhone software.
    Have done a few tests with people in the country and outside (few diff ones) and nimbuzz was quite laggy.

    I also found the chat thru wifi will only work with skype users. Msn & yahoo didn’t work for me @ all.

    Thx

  99. @Bas
    Thanks for the information provided!
    We are currently investigating this issue which has been reported by some other users like you.
    @Roger
    No, we are not aware of this issue, can you let us know if you get any error message when trying to log on Skype? If yes, which one?
    Or you just are not able to see your balance?
    Let us know and we will come back to you as soon as we can.
    @enfodesign
    Thanks for letting us now, we are currently investigating some issues reported about the Push Notification option.
    We expect to have them solved in upcoming releases.
    Cheers!

  100. @Wolf
    thanks for your feedback and comment; Much appreciated!
    We will investigate the technical possibilities of making the application compatible for Power Pc and announce it as soon as it is supported.
    @Victor
    Are you behind a firewall?
    Are you on a working network?
    It could be possible that it this could block some ports that we communicate with and the connection cannot be made.
    Let us know
    @Mr. J
    Thanks for your feedback about the Push Notification, we are already working on it in order to increase the time to be online.
    About Skype, we will investigate if that was a temporary problem, please let us know if experience this issue more often.
    In Regards of Yahoo, We are currently investigating this issue which has been reported by some other users like you.
    Thanks & Regards

  101. Thank you for requesting more information. WHen attempting to connect to skype to dial out, the system will not connect to the skype servers. The only way is to delete my skpe account from Iphone and re enter my account name etc. This will then work and allow me to place calls however exiting Nimbuzz and then re opening Skype will again not be found. This was not a problem until the last update.

  102. @Roger
    Thanks for the information provided.
    We will investigate this issue and let you know as soon as we have any updates.
    Kind regards.

  103. @Bah Bah
    Thanks for your interest and suggestion.
    We will consider this suggestion for the future improvements but we cannot fix a date for it yet. We do not have plans to support it in a close future.
    Thanks and regards.

  104. dear nimbuzz crew..i have some problem..why i can’t stay online for 24 hours on my nimbuzz when i exit the aplication(not sing out)..it’s gonna be so different like when i use nimbuzz on my nokia E71..give me some clue to my e-mail

  105. @Andreas J.E
    Thanks for reporting to us.
    The time logged in Nimbuzz doesn’t differ when you are running it on the background or not. It can depend on your phone’s battery life for example.
    Kind regards.

  106. I second the request for having a keypad available during phone calls. This is necessary to be able to screen incoming calls from Google Voice.

  107. am selecting a phone for use in the netherlands

    only t-mobile sells the iphone

    does t-mobile in the netherlands allow VOIP on the iPhone through the 3G (or 3.5G) networks (so not only through WIFI)?

    it does on the Nokia 5800 Xpress Music – i tried an MSN call via NImbuzz and it worked beautifully

    thanks for letting me know!

    AlbertS

  108. @Sam N
    Thanks for reporting to us. We will forward your suggestion to our technical team and let them study the possibility of adding it in the future.

  110. dear Nimbuzz support

    i asked a question on the 13th of September

    i would like to buy my phone in 2 weeks time

    thanks for your attention

  115. in july you wrote “The longer duration on the push notification is already on our roadmaps”.
    3 months later: the 30 minutes limit is still a joke :(

  116. @ikhaled
    Thanks for your feedback!
    Great to know you enjoy Nimbuzz.
    Kind regards.
    @sd
    Thanks for your interest.
    We understand the importance on this feature, and we are working in order to have it implemented as soon as possible but there is no fixed date for it to be released yet.
    We will announce when available.
    Kind regards.

  117. Hello support,

    the file transfer does not work on the OS X application (snowleopard)! I cannot send any files. Further how do I download files being transferred to me from Windows clients? I receive an email notification to sign in to Nimbuzz but there is no option to download the file?
    Otherwise the application is great!

  118. @hfcome
    Thanks for reporting this to us.
    We are currently aware of this and working in a fix to solve this ASAP.
    Stay tuned we will announce in our Blog as soon as a new upgrade is available to be downloaded.
    Cheers!

  119. @tomi
    The current version of Nimbuzz for MAC does not support PPC devices, just Intel devices.
    We might consider in the future to support PPC devices.
    Regards

  120. Thanks for the quick answer!

    Another question. The iPhone app asks to enrter my birthday but it says it is wrong. How can I solve this issue?

  121. @tomi
    Sometimes while registering to Facebook, you will be request to introduce your birthdate as a verification of your account.

    You just have to introduce your birthdate with the same format you did on your Facebook account settings and few seconds after your Facebook contact list will appear.

    Let us know if you have more questions.

  126. i have a problem with nimbuzz on the iphone… whenever my friends try to buzz me when the application is closed, it just tells them i have the feature disabled.. and when i try to call a friend on nimbuzz and they are offline it does not even give me the option to call or buzz them …..i went thru the settings and everything and i dont know how to enable this feature… is there a way to make this feature work as it used to on my nokia
    thanks

    Btw this is probably the best IM application out there, u guys need to work a lil bit on push notifications, they sometimes dont come thru.. and increase the stay online to like 7 days as in beejive… other then that i have no complaints. Keep up the good work

  127. @oz
    Try to enable the feature directly on the Webchat version of Nimbuzz going logging here: http://www.nimbuzz.com/en/my_nimbuzz/login
    On your settings check if the Buzz feature has been enabled.
    From the iPhone is currently not possible to send buzz alerts to your friends,
    Let us know if you have more questions.
    Regards

  128. @queralt
    Thanks, i was able to enable the buzz by logging into nimbuzz from my brothers nokia… however, whenever someone tries to buzz me i still dont get the buzz.. even if i am using a nokia device… and when i try to buzz them it says the fair usage policy does not allow.
    for the website bit, i tried that but as soon as u change the settings and click save it just logs u out and when u log back in the settings are as before.

    do u know as to when we would be able to buzz from the iphone… and when we will be able to receive buzz on the iphone as well..
    thanks

  129. @oz
    Thanks for reporting this.
    In regards of the Buzz, there is a limit of Buzzes to be sent and received per day per user.
    If your friends have not sent more than 3 buzz alerts per day and when trying to send you one they get an error message, please let us know when this happened: which date/time and the time zone.
    In regards of the settings not being saved in the Webchat version, could you let us know which browser and version are you using?
    Thanks & Regards

  130. Nimbuzz for iPhone

  133. @megaZEE
    Skype avatars are not supported.
    Your Yahoo contacts should see the display picture you have on yahoo itself, not on Nimbuzz.
    Can you check if you have any display picture on Yahoo?
    Thanks & Regards

  134. @jmj
    Due to technical reasons we do not support Skype on PC and we do not have plans to change this in the future.

Trying to use our VOIP system as SIP provider Configured a SIP phone in the Callmanager (SIP phone won’t register) and SIP account in Nimbuzz but getting “Call is not allowed by your SIP provider” when trying to make an internal (4-digit) call.
