  7. I was one of those who tested this before release but I still have not received my extra $5 calling credit promised after giving feedback!

    The new version is very good, and includes not only NimbuzzOut but also a lot more emoticons in chat, the ability to edit your phonebook in Nimbuzz and be able to see the call rate before making a NimbuzzOut call. It also includes the ability to click on weblinks in chat. Although call rates are cheaper than SkypeOut the mobile call rates are still too high in my opinion, though call quality I find to be reliable and good.

  8. I dnt know if i am the only 1 experiencing this but i downloaded the latest nimbuzz (as it tells me wen i check 4 updates) but there is no nimbuzzout and all the other sip accounts dissapeard, even my phonebook doesnt show if its cellular, skypeout, it just shows contacts. N i want to make calls :(

  9. @Mike

    Thanks for reminding us.
    We will follow up with you about the promised reward via mail

  10. Hello,
    NimbuzzOut and VoIP calling is currently available for Nokia Symbian devices that have symbian S603rd generation except for the following models: Nokia 3250, 5500, E50 and E62.
    This Symbian based devices such yours which do not include the VoIP functionality due to technical reasons and that’s why you receive that error message and you are not capable of calling.
    Thanks for your comments.
    Let us know if you have more questions.

  11. where’s the update with nimbuzzout for android? or is nimbuzz only interested in putting new features on ancient, less-capable phones?

  12. Tried making a NimbuzzOut call today after installing the new version and although I could hear clearly, the receiving party could not make out what I was saying. I even made a call to my own answerphone to test it and the quality of the recorded message was very poor, with drag too of about 3 seconds. This is not what I experienced in the beta version when call quality was fine.

  13. i am tambsam1
    i subscribed nimbuss out on my N95 mobile n i am in saudi arabia now so how can i get the credit for international calling. can u please suggest me the way

  14. Hi there. Can you please tell when wether is there any new version available for my Nokia 9300. And the second thing is that I am experiencing problem with my N91. I do have Nimbuzz but the problem is that I dont see any options that enables me to chat in CHAT ROOMS but with my N9300 I am able to enter rooms and chat.

  15. Greetings
    I see that people are experiencing the same problems which were reported during the beta tests via the ambassador program,namely that connections are established for a few seconds and afterwards dropped,during which the parties can’t hear eachother. Of course,the user is charged,because the connection was succesful and alive for 2 seconds.
    As for the beta +5 usd,neither did I receive it.

  16. @HOPE4JOY
    Both devices have access to Nimbuzz Chatrooms.
    On the N91 try to: Chat TAb> Options> chatrooms>
    In regards of the 9300 is using a Java version of Nimbuzz that does not have calling feature enabled.
    Let us know if you have more questions.

  17. @robert
    NimbuzzOut is currently supported on iPhone and Nokia Symbian devices with OS S60 3rd generation and above.
    It is our ambition to be able to support it in more devices in the future.
    Thanks for your interest and comments.
    Kind Regards

  18. The audio problem also exists for SIP calling now as well as for NimbuzzOut calls. I can hear clearly the other recipient of my call, but they cannot decipher what I am saying. Never had this problem before and calls are made on a strong 3g connection.

  20. @ tim hufton
    I don’t trust nimbuzz call services…
    You can still use other free VOIP Apps…to make free calls
    But i guess what nimbuzz is offering is a better quality service call.
    However there are apps made specially for free VOIP Calls

  21. i am using nimbuzz and always gettin msg tht nimbuzzout is available upgrade it, but when i try to upgrade, it says site is blocked, i m in dubai, can anyone help me to upgrade

  22. @qaid

    Let us know

  23. hi i m sajid from kuwait .i m download tha latest version of Nimbuzz out on my mobil N95 8Gb n so how can i get tha credit for international calling .can u please suggest me tga way ok by

  24. Dubai may be like Saudi Arabia in that the government blocks all voip calls. You need to check – don';t buy any credit unless you know you can use it.

    To improve voice quality I found that uninstalling Nimbuzz and re-installing it got rid of the other person not being able to hear me. A tip: always uninstall the previous Nimbuzz version before installing the latest one.

  25. While visiting Shanghai last week I found the gov. there has blocked Skype and Fring access. At least that was my experience on the hotel wifi. Anyway, when looking for an alternative I found Nimbuzz mentioned on a forum and so downloaded it into my Nokia (Symbian S60, E71) and then bought credit by card from within the Nimbuzz app on the Nokia (didn’t have a PC with me and didn’t need one). I was then able to immediately make Nimbuzzout calls internationally through the hotel wifi. The quality was great, no noticeable delay and once again I was connected with the world. Thanks Nimbuzz! Interrestingly, my account was quickly blocked by Nimbuzz because my billing address on the card I used for credit and the country I called from first were different, but when I provided the requested verification by email the account was then releassed within a few hours. No problem for me and it was good that my credit card was being protected that way. I like Nimbuzz a lot and now use it from my home in Japan for international calls via wifi.

  26. How can we Nigerian get the all Feature of nimbuzzout. Or those it work in Nigeria, and if it work what version of phone can it work with? Though am using N70.

  27. @Danasabe usman, Nigeria

    We currently support calling from/ to Nigeria and you can find more informations about our rates here:
    Please let us know if you have more questions!
    Kind regards.

  28. Why NimbuzzOut? What has it to offer that Skype or SIP already provides (inside Nimbuzz)?
    I can even call with lower rates (see rates at using SIP inside Nimbuzz. Actually Nimbuzz is a great SIP client. Better than the paid ones I tried (on iPhone).

  29. @Yannick
    Thanks for your feedbcak and comment.
    In regards of the rates question, pricing in the international voice calling market varies from route to route and provider to provider. Pricing is based on a combination of factors including call volume, call quality and connection methods.
    At Nimbuzz we’ve invested in technology which promises the best voice quality and highest call connection success rates.
    We’re constantly monitoring the marketplace to ensure we remain extremely competitive on a wide range of the most popular international calling routes for our users.
