  1. Hi nimbuzz team , my phone is nokia 2600c and i want to download asuitable version on it,because the version on your site doesn’t work and the lite version doesn’t contain any features ,
    plz give me what i hope!

  2. Great to see the new iPhone functionality but we still sorely need the old functionality – I still can’t buzz contacts and incoming buzz’s come through as a private number. This worked fine before on my Nokia E90 as it buzzed my contacts and it also showed the Nimbuzz incoming number. So incoming buzz’s are also useless as I don’t realise someone is trying to reach me. This really reduces Nimbuzz to GTalk functionality for me on the iPhone and I’ll have to look for some other IM by the looks of it.

  3. Hi why do not work the push notification in the ipod touch 3g? when a return to the main menu in my ipod the nimbuzz aplication stop working…

  4. The push notification bug is still not fixed, right? Nimbuzz is a great app but unfortunately without the notification had to jump to competitor while it’s being fixed :)

  5. @Weydson Lima
    Indeed we are facing some issues with the Push notification, but we are working in order to have them solved as soon as possible.

  6. @Kev
    NimbuzzOut sets up a VoIP connection over your 3G or Wi-Fi network.
    Let us know if you have more questions.

    It is currently not possible to Buzz from an iPhone.
    But receiving Buzzes is possible if you have your phone registered on your account settings.
    If you receive a Buzz it should be shown as a miss call from +313131 sometimes the provider can block the caller ID and show the caller as Unknown.
    Let us know if you have more questions.

  8. Thanks for the reply. My provider is not blocking the caller ID as it worked fine on my Nokia E90 and I just transferred that same SIM card to my iPhone. Nokia shows the caller ID fine but the iPhone shows blocked. My iPhone does show other caller ID’s for callers so I can only assume it is the Nimbuzz for iPhone software.

    I’d still like to know more about the bug on the iPhone with regards to sending the Buzz – s it the iPhone itself or the Nimbuzz software on iPhone?

  9. @Danie

    Thanks for your interest.

    The Buzz feature is not integrated into the iPhone version, it is not a bug.

    In regards of the caller ID, let us know where are you located (country) and which provider do you have and we will have a look into it.


  10. Nimbuzz looks sleek and nice on iPhone. Please do the same for the 39% plus of smart phone users on this planet… the symbian users

  12. Hi. I have run version 1.5.0 revision 3093.3094 for 2 month with out a single problem on my G502! This is the smallest model in the G serie so the bigger ones should also run that version fine! But not tested. Best Thomas

  13. @queralt escrich, I’m in South Africa on MTN. Like I say though the identical SIM card and number worked on my Nokia E90 and showed that incoming number.

  19. is nimbuzzout to nimbuzzout international calling free? like, if i use nimbuzzout on my iphone to call a friend in s.korea who also is using nimbuzz out on her iphone. is that call free over 3g or do i need to buy credit?

  20. I need help. I have installed NIMBUZZ in my Apple iPhone. I bought credit and was making calls normally, but suddenly it stopped working. My connection is okay, even the ammount of my nimbuzz credit appears on the screen,I can chat using Windows Live Messager, etc. But when I try to make a call I receive the following message all the time:”Please connect to a Wi-Fi network. Voice calls are only allowed on Wi-Fi network”

  21. @Odilon
    The current Nimbuzz version for iPhone has not 3g calling enabled, that’s why is requesting you to have Wi-Fi network.
    We are expecting a new update to be live and allow this very very soon.

  22. I already installed nimbuzz new version in my samsung s3310 mobile. But I can not create an id on nimbuzz. My connection is okay. But when I click on “create a new id” then error is coming that server time out. At any another application nothing error is comming.
