    Currently via Nimbuzz you can remove/delete Nimbuzz contacts, but not contacts from other communities.
    You will have to remove them directly from its own IM client, in this case Yahoo or Facebook.
    Let us know if you have more questions.

  10. I’m having issues with my Facebook contacts, I am not able to see any of them online… Tried deleting the Facebook account from Nimbuzz and registering it again, but I still have the same problem. Any other suggestions?

  11. Ur New Nimbuz version 2.02 is look in Good, But it is complicated for chating, and ur new Nimbuzz cant do Signout in my Nokia n73. And also there taking more delay while chating with different persons. So we hope u can rectify this problems in next version

  12. @Yunus
    You can still logout from Nimbuzz if you go to Me> Status> Sign out
    Instead of exiting the application, without closing totally.
    Let us know if you have more questions

  13. @Lucy
    Can you let us know if you have accepted the new privacy settings of Facebook or have to skip that and left as previuosly?
    Let us know!

  14. I checked the new privacy info, but left everything with the settings I already had (which are pretty restrictive). What setting should I change?

  25. @Omer
    If you send a file to a Nimbuzz contact this will be stored in your Online gallery and it won’t be removed by Nimbuzz.
    If you remove/delete a file from your Online gallery, there is no possibility of recover it afterwards.
    Let us know if you have more questions.

  26. @Syed Zaghum Abbas

  28. :) i love the option of getting email notifications everytime someone sends you a file thru nimbuzz. in the past, i could also download the file [eg. pics] from my email. now i notice that it doesnt allow that anymore. why? :( some files i cant download thru nimbuzz but i always had the option of downloading them from my email so pls pls pls bring that back – if you even know what im talking abt. hehe.

  29. Suggestion : could we have more status options besides just online, away, or busy. more fun and descriptive ones like : on the phone, on the toilet, eating, gone shopping, sleeping, taking a bath, reading etc. etc. etc. I sometimes have nimbuzz on while im doing all of those things lol and it would be cool if my status could show that. if im the first to suggest it, hope others will say ditto to me :p . Ps. I love nimbuzz !

  30. i used ym n fb account n signed in from nimbuzz. how can i sign out my fb, without sign out from ym? pls answer to my email. thx….

  31. Does anyone have a solution for me. Nimbuzz displays the list of facebook contacts but every time I try chat with a contact on facebook, I get a “send destination not online” even if the user is listed as online……
    Please help

  32. @bond
    You can sign out from Facebook on Nimbuzz if you unregister your Facebook credentials from Nimbuzz.
    Go to Menu> Communities> Facebook and unregister.
    Let us know if you have more questions.

  33. @ricky
    Nimbuzz does refresh your contact list every a short-time period, sometimes while the list of contacts is refreshing might show that one of your contacts is online when it is not. Then when you send him/her a message and they are offline this message will appear.

  34. I need help with contacts. I’m registered on windows live and I can’t see all contacts online when they are online… plz help me I realy need that cuz i can’t see my girlfriend online when she is… And one more problem, when I’m chating with contact and he get disconnect, and than he come back online I’m sending him messages but he don’t recive, than I must relog. Plz help me giving me a solution or fixing it in new version. Everything else is great and working fine for me. Thank you, it is better than ebuddy ;)

  35. @Filip
    Thanks for reporting this.
    Could you let us know if the contacts you are not able to see online are using MSN or any other third party application to login?
    Which status are they displaying?
    Let us know!

  36. It doesn’t matter what they use or where they log in, i tried to log in every where and nothing, my girlfriend can’t see me online when she is on nimbuzz and when i am on nimbuzz or when i am on ebuddy, computer…

  37. @Filip
    Are your friends not able to see you online?
    From which community? Are they also Nimbuzz contacts or from another community? If yes, which one?
    Which status are you displaying when this happen?
    Are you using Nimbuzz in which client? Mobile, PC or webchat?
    Let us know!

  38. Yes, my girlfriend is not able to see me in windows live comunity while she use nimbuzz on mobile. I’m using it for mobile too, I don’t know which status are they displaying becouse I don’t see them, like they are offline. I don’t understand english so good so I don’t know how to explain better.

  39. I’ve been using nimbuzz on my n97 for a couple of months now and now i’ve got the missing contact list problem too. I can’t see my windows live contacts when I logon using nimbuzz on my n97. I’m in Mexico by the way I use Telcel. I changed nothing on my phone, the only thing I think I did to trigger this was to add my yahoo messenger account, I can see yahoo contacts, but the msn ones are gone. I’ve removed the yahoo account but still can’t see msn.

    I tried reinstalling nimbuzz, but no luck either. I hope someone can help with this as there aren’t many options for IM on the N97 and all I can find regarding this issue are questions from Nimbuzz to users with the sae problem, but no answers yet.

  40. @broken_nimbuzz
    Thanks for reporting this in order to investigate this could you let us know the following:
    Are you not able to see your contacts as Offline or you do not see them at all?
    Have you tried to re-register the MSN account on Nimbuzz?
    Please let us know your Nimbuzz ID and MSN ID sending a mail to
    Have you tried to re-register the MSN account on Nimbuzz?
    Please let us know your Nimbuzz ID and MSN ID sending a mail to
    Kind Regards

  41. Yes I tried to re-register MSN account on Nimbuzz but didn’t help. We can see all contacts that we have, but some of them are constantly offline, and they are shown offline for us on Nimbuzz when they are realy not offline… I can even recive their messages when they send me (becouse they see me online) but when I answer them back they don’t recive and for me they are shown offline. :(

  42. @Filip
    Our support team has received your mail with the information.
    We will come back to you as soon as we have some more information.

  43. hi, i’m from mexico too and i have telcel too. since i installed nimbuzz, i wasn’t unable to see any of my contacts. then i delete my windows live account in nimbuzz (in my cell phone). and then i enter to my computer messenger and delete some of my contacts untl i have just 19 contacts, then i installed again my windows live account in my cell phone (in nimbuzz). and all my contacts appear.

  44. @Arjat
    Thanks for letting us know.
    Could you let us know how many contacts did you had before?
    We will try to reproduce this issue at our offices.

  45. @broken_nimbuzz

    Got the same problem aswell.
    i have the problem on the nimbuzz “msn messenger”.

    My real windows messenger shows : 58 people.
    Nimbuzz messenger shows: 52 people.

    For some reason nimbuzz doesnt show all contacts….

    I try a lot of things, but nothing would work:(

    p.s.: Im using the nokia n86.

  46. @ arjat.

    What to do if you have 400 contacts?:P

    Maybe this would help:
    What about the people that use a splitter on the modem?

    Can the contacts be appear if they have the same ip?

  47. @Roy
    If you have 400 contacts they should appear all.
    In regards of your suggestion, split the modem in 2 won’t help since all the contacts are in 1 account.

  48. Well Nimbuzz, thanks a lot, for me and my girlfriend Nimbuzz is working fine now. There is no more showing offline contacts, and disconnect bug is fixed too. Thanks a looooot!! ;)))

  49. @Filip
    Thanks for the update.
    We are glad you are not having issues anymore.

    it takes a while to update and check your contact’s statuses.
    It could happen that while you see someone online and want to chat with him/her then he goes offline and then it takes a while for the application to show you that it went offline.

  72. @akshay
    The app refresehs the contact list status every some minutes, probably it refreshes the status while you send a message to someone that seems to be online, but then after refresh is offline and you get this message when sending a chat to a non online contact.
