Nimbuzz for BlackBerry 5.0: Fixed!

Nimbuzz for BlackBerry

If last week we had good news for Nimbuzz Java users, when we announced our latest update optimized for Java touchscreens, this week we come back with more good news: We fixed the BlackBerry connection issue! Yey! [Download link]

Last year in December we announced our first native application for Blackberry’s . Unfortunately a few weeks after the new BB 5.0 O.S. upgrade went live and some pieces of our code didn’t worked with the new O.S., we had to go back to the “drawing board”  :( .

Although it took longer than expected, we did it and now all of you can enjoy running Nimbuzz on Blackberry.

And just to refresh your memory :P , here are the key features for the current version:

  • runs in background
  • connects you to all your friends
  • brings home screen notification
  • auto-reconnects
  • Clickable” URL’s

You can download the new Nimbuzz for Blackberry from [Download link] or via Blackberry App World [Download link].

As always your feedback is welcome and if you find any bug or you have any suggestion for us please let us know in the comment section bellow.

  1. What about Nimbuzz for Sony Ericsson UIQ. You have completely neglected this platform leaving a majority of us stranded. please reconsider.

  2. hmm symbian version has also reconnecting issue, and Nimbuzz Team claims on forum that it has been fixed, but still no version for symbian to let us use the fixed one..

  3. @lapin
    Which kind of issue are you experiencing with the Symbian version?
    Please be more specific, indicate your device (model and brand) the version in use and a brief explanation of the issue , and if possible how to reproduce it.
    @Manyeki Alex
    Indeed we do not support that Platform, but we will consider doing it in the future.

  4. The Sign in as failed.
    Please check the device network settings and the network connection and try again.

  5. What about the problem when we are using facebook? Will you fix it? When I chat, I see only numbers of the senders, not a names or nicknames these facebook users

  6. @matt
    Could you let u know which BlackBerry Os are you running?
    Could you try to change the connection settings to use HTTP and TCP (you need the carrier APN settings for that)
    Let us know!
    Indeed we are working on that as well.
    We expect to have it solved in the upcoming days.

  7. My friends dont receive my message i sent to them using nimbuzz. Hope you can clear this thing out.

    Device: BB 8520
    OS: 4.6

  8. @shafiq
    Could you please be more specific?
    Which community are your contacts from? Are they using Nimbuzz or another IM community?
    Which one?
    Since when are you experiencing this issue?
    Let us know

  9. the contacts are from my IM community. I experiencing this issue when i downloaded the latest nimbuzz 1.1.1. I can receive their message but when i sent my message to them, it just dont appear on their IM window/ phone.

  10. i’m still muddy around the nimbuzzout/skypeout situation. if i currently have skypeout credit will it work with nimbuzz or am i required to purchase actual nimbuzzout credits for this to work on my blackberry bold 9700? (running OS 5.0.545)…and will i be able to sms internationally with the same credits?

  11. I have installed nimbuzz on my blackberry curve 8330. When I go to set up my facebook settings, it isn’t uploading my contacts. Either that or is suppose to take an hour (I’m guessing it is not the latter). Yes, I signed into the facebook portion of nimbuzz with my facebook username and password. Please help.

  12. MSN and yahoo IM community… I dont know what the problem… I download and reinstall back but the problem still the same… hope you can help me… =(

  13. Download from App World yesterday, rebooted 9500, but still have unexpected error. Very lag, sometime see MSN client, others dissapear, vice versa, not consistant.

  14. Is there a sound notifier during a live chat? I get the notifier when a user sends me a message for the very first time, after that I get nothing. If I’m doing something else I have to constantly check to see if the other user typed a new message…is there a fix for this?

  15. @jimi
    Which exact error message do you receive?
    When does it appear?
    Which Nimbuzz version are you running?
    Could you please be more specific?
    Are you having issues registering this communities or just loading contacts?
    Do you get any error message?
    Let us know!
    The BlackBerry version of Nimbuzz does not include the calling feature.
    @Julie Rindt
    You can try to unregister and register again your Facebook credentials.
    Contact our Support Team on if you still experience issues with it.

  16. @Floydboy
    If the chat window is open, there won’t be a sound notification.
    We will consider this as a suggestion for a future improvement.

  17. like i stated previously… My problem is, my contacts in IM community cannot receive any message that i sent them using nimbuzz.. i retrieve all the contacts in the nimbuzz perfectly, my contacts can sent me their message and i receive it well… the only problem is, my message that i sent to them using nimbuzz, none of them receive it. i sent to yahoo messenger but none of them can receive it, i sent to msn messenger, the same problem occurred… i tried uninstall and reinstall back but the situation remain the same.

  18. Just cos I ain’t a biased person… I’m giving the new Nimbuzz a try and so far so good. Been logged on for about 20 or so mins but not yet had the reconnecting problem. Also i noticed u can now select connect preferences i.e BIS, BES etc… which is great as i believe this should sort it out. Just hoping ya’ll sort out the notification of messages when in live chat as closing the app all the time once u send a message aint that great. Sometimes u just wanna drop ur phone while chat is still open but would like it to beep or vibrate once ur buddies have reponded.

    Good work guys.. keep it up. If any bugs are found I will let you know. Only want u guys to be the best you can be so dont get mad at my last critique.


  19. @kg.idowu
    Thanks for your feedback, we are glad you enjoy using the application.
    We will consider adding this notification in the future

  20. I don get any sound alerts nor does my phone vibrate when i get a message.. even if the chat window is closed. However i do get a homescreen notification. I have BB 8520. Please tell me what i should do to get sound alerts.

  21. @SS
    On your BlackBerry, go to Menu> Sounds > set Ringtones Alerts> IM > Other> Nimbuzz
    And then select when you want to receive sound alerts.

  22. I installed the new version of nimbuzz 1.1.1 and when i try to connect it says “the sign in has failed. Please check the device network settings and the network connection and try again”

    What do i have to configure in order to use nimbuz?

    I´m using a Blackberry 8900 v (Platform

    Any help?


  23. My Facebook contacts only go to the letter “M”. I have offline contacts hidden. It shows all my contacts for MSN, Yahoo, MySpace, and Google Talk. Doesn’t seem to have a max number for facebook, it just always shows nothing after the letter “M” and after the same contact.

    I have a Blackberry 8900 with OS

  24. @Chad
    Due to technical reasons we have a limit of 400 Facebook contacts per account.
    We are working in order to increase the number allowed.

  25. @Esteban
    Could you try to change your connection to Http (note for that you will need to include your TCP carrier settings) and try again?
    Let us know if it works.

  26. @queralt escrich

    Because I have my offline contacts hidden, I’m not even close to 400. I may have 20-30 online at any given time and it still only goes to the letter “M”.

  27. @Chad
    If you enable the option “show my offline contacts” you will see we are displaying 400 contacts.
    We know that currently we display the first 400 contacts in alphabetical order, we are working in order to change that.
    Kind Regards

  28. not allowed at china on blackberry packed
    we must use wifi,and cannot be download at blackberry appworld

  29. @jin xiang

  30. no option is showing for call in blackberry bold 9700, but in iphone its showing, I can chat only using numbuzz. any solution??

  31. @syberpriend
    The calling feature is not supported on BlackBerry and Java devices.
    Let us know if you have more questions.

  32. Hi,
    My nimbuzz is only showing 36 of my facebook contacts and 6 online it also doesn’t seem to want to show anything past the letter ‘A’
    I have tried both connection settings, doesn’t seem to make any difference.

  33. @Rob
    For technical reasons there is a limitation of showing 400 Facebook contacts.
    This 400 are the first 400 on your list in alphabetical order, not the first 400 online.
    We are working in order to improve this.

  34. @queralt escrich
    I only have 36 contacts showing even when ‘showing all’ I know for a fact I have over 400 but would at least expect it to say ‘All 400′

  35. Hi,

    I would like to know when or if you will be adding the calling feature for blackberry nimbuzz users?

  36. @amusa85
    We currently do not have the BlackBerry API to implement this feature.
    We do not have plans o implement it in the near future.

  37. Hi, i have a blackberry bold 9700 and i dont get alerts or any sound when i receive a message. I tried this direction: On your BlackBerry, go to Menu> Sounds > set Ringtones Alerts> IM > Other> Nimbuzz

  55. @Sabin
    The current version of Nimbuzz for BlackBerry does not not include the calling feature.
    Let us know if you have more questions.

  56. @Mike B
    This message appears due to the way Nimbuzz operates your Facebook login and because Facebook is acting more restrict with your account privacy, you can get this error while connecting from Opera mini also for example.

    We can guarantee that Nimbuzz operates your account safely.

    All you need to do to unblock your Facebook account is:

    1)Login on the Facebook from the PC (
    2)Accept the captcha
    3)Check activity details and choose “yes, recognize it”

    Once this is done you will not experience more issues while connecting from Nimbuzz.

    Please let us know if you have more questions!

    Kind regards.

  57. @Patrick
    Are you trying to connect to Nimbuzz using the Wap application? Or have you already downloaded Nimbuzz on your device?
    Check on your device: Options> Advanced Options> TCP settings if they are correct.
    Let us know!

  58. @Grace
    try to activate the following:
    On your BB MEnu:
    Go to Sounds> Set Ringtones Alert> Other> Nimbuzz New Message>
    there you can change the volume and sound
    Let us know if you have more questions.

  67. Hello,

    I have tried the site, it allowed me to download the .cod and ALX files, but DTM says that it is not compatible with my device or the files are corrupt. I made sure i downloaded the copy for my 9700. I tried to dl through their mobile site and it would not recognize my device selection and kept cycling me through the phone option.

    I cant use bb app world as it is not accessible in Mozambique.

    I have read great reviews about your product and would greatly appreciate any help to have this working on my 9700.

    Thanks again for all your help. Hopefully we can find a solution, as I have several people in Mozambique who also wish to use this program.

    Kind Regards,

    We will have a look into this.
    In the meanwhile, could you try to download the application from the BlackBerry App World? Or from Getjar?

  68. @David,
    We are gonna look into this and investigate if the issue.
    We will come back to you as soon as we have some more information.

  69. Hello,
    I love Nimbuzz but my facebook isn’t logging in but my aim, and yahoo are.

    I tried to log in from my (user) name but it said its invaild. Then I tried it with my email and it said “unsuccessful sign-in” I don’t know what I am doing wrong.

    Device: T-Mobile Blackberry Bold 9700

    OS: 5.0

    Thanks in advance

  70. @Toine
    Thanks for letting us know.
    We are currently aware of some issues with the Facbook connectivity.
    Our Team is already looking into it, we recommend you to try again later.

  71. Hello guys, I wanted to touch base and see if you were able top come up with a solution for me to use Nimbuzz.

    pp world is not available in Mozambique

  72. @David
    Thanks for reporting, as mentioned previously we will have a look into this issue.

  73. Hi, cool app.
    My problem is I have no sound either. I saw your suggestion about “go to Menu> Sounds >
    set Ringtones Alerts> IM > Other> Nimbuzz” but I have no such menu/sound menu. I’m using a blackberry curve 8520. If I could set a sound and volume for all messages and auto save chat logs to a text file this app would be perfect.

    Camera and microphone integration would be an amazing bonus as well as p2p file transfers. Any plans for any of this? I know that’s a lot of coding, but perhaps for a paid pro version… Just a thought.

    Thanks for this app. I’m looking forward to future versions.

  74. Hello,

    Not on IM but as following:

    Menu> Sounds > set Ringtones Alerts > Other > Nimbuzz new message

    We will consider your suggestions for the future improvements.

    Kind regards.

  75. My facebook isn’t connecting. It says “Unsucessful Log-in” and – know my e-mail and password are correct. I have a Blackberry 8900 and am running Nimbuzz 1.1.2. What am I doing wrong?

  76. I am using blackberry curve 8520 and nimbuzz version 1.1.2. i can chat easily at all community skype ,gtalk ,facebook but i can’t make voice call to skype or in gtalk ?

  77. @Mohit
    The Nimbuzz version for BlackBerry devices does not include the calling feature.

  78. @lucy
    We are aware of issues with FB connection and we are working on Facebook Connect to solve these problems.
    Thanks for your understanding.

  79. im in DUBAI and the website is blocked in this region, I can connect thru a proxy on my computer but not on thru my mobile, I need to download nimbuzz on my blackberry 8520 and the nimbuzz site says you can download directly from your mobile, when I browse thru my mobile it says this site is Forbidden to see.. PLEASE HELLLLLLLPP !!!

  80. @Ahmed Khan
    Have you tried downloading directly from the BalckBerry App World? Or from
    Point your phone browser to
    If this does not work, we do not have other alternative websites.

  81. but there is no nimbuzz talk available in this app,for blackberry bold,for all other mobiles its working except for this

  82. @rajeev
    As mentioned previously on this Blog, we do not support calling feature on BlackBerry devices.

  83. i have installed nimbuzz on my blackberry 9000 but i cant use the sip service as i am using for nokia E71

    how can i make sip setting or use the sip server

  84. @munaf
    As mentioned previously, we do not support calling on the Nimbuzz version for BlackBerry devices

  85. Which means permanently we can’t use SIP account in Black Berry device (BB Bold 9700) at all !!!!!!!!!!!

  86. Hello, I wana ask, when Nimbuzz will make Nimbuzz voice calls possible to work for blackberry bold 9700? The device is perfect but due to lack of voice services for BB it looks like Nokia 3310? Pls reply and update on your work toward this issue.

  87. @medxb
    Thanks for your comment.
    Indeed we do not support the calling feature for blackBerry devices.
    We will research the possibilities of adding it in the future.
    Kind Regards

  88. will soon be possible for me to send photos and files from my blackberry?
    this is the only feature which is missing…

  89. @lovenimbuzz
    We will implement sending file feature in upcoming releases.
    Thanks for your interest

  90. I’m using a BB9000. I can no more log to nimbuzz. I’m getting something like: Application not responding. Nimbuzz must close

  91. @Narcisse
    When do you exactly receive that error message?
    Could you give us some more details about it, so we can try to reproduce the issue?

  92. I have just installed nimbuzz on my blackberry bold 9000,but all my facebook contacts are showing offline.I cnt chat wit my frends cos its obvious they wudnt get my message please help.

  93. @steph
    Have you already follow the steps mentioned in previous comments?
    Login to your FB page and go into Account Settings -> on Account Security -> “be informed of new devices accessing FB” tick ‘No’. Still on your Facebook page enable your Facebook chat then close the page without hitting the option “go offline”on the chat. Then log in Nimbuzz go to accounts and select Facebook, disconnect and reconnect your Facebook account in order to refresh the data.
    Please let us know the results.
    Kind regards.

  94. i think its a great software!! and i thank you for developing it and releasing it for free!! but there are a couple of things i find quite annoying.
    first, it keeps freezing, for some reason (no error message) every once in a while it looks like its working, but when i start a chat there are two boxes, one looks like the one used for writing, but theres another one like twice as big under that one… so, closing and restarting is the only solution. and this happens quite often, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. and since it doesn’t show an error message at all, sometimes i dont even know that it has been frozen for hours, of course going offline. and sometimes for me its VERY important to be available online.

    then, when im scrolling down thru my list of contacts, it keeps getting back to the top, it also goes back to the top every time i get out of a conversation, or when i get out of the “contact info” window. it would be nice if it could stay on the contact previously selected. sometimes there are 2 or 3 “john”‘s and to find out which one’s which, you have to go to the “contact info”, but when you get out, the contact selection is lost..

    and also, sometimes it only shows the facebook ID when a facebook contact sends me a message, this doesn’t happen with all the contacts, only sometimes. and those contacts whose name is not shown, wont appear as online either.

    i use Nimbuzz 1.1.2 on a BB 8530(CDMA) with software, over 3G with IUSACELL (mexican carrier)

    i wrote this not as a demand for you to fix it, but as a feedback of what i’ve seen as a everyday nimbuzz user.

    keep up the good work fixing and implementing more features on nimbuzz for BB!!! thanks again!!

  95. @alvaro
    Thanks for your comment and feedback.
    We wil try to reproduce this issue, could you let us know if when the device freezes is always when using an specific feature or happends randomly?
    In regards of Facebook we are aware of this issue and we expect to have it solved as soon as we implement Facebook connect on the BlackBerry version.

  96. hi, bb device service blocked some countries.(uae,etc).So the device we can use either the rim support to voice chat or the third party application like nuimbuzz.Nimbuzz & Rim Please make the voice support as soon as possible.Otherways bb devices sales will falling down in these countries.Nimbuzz team appreciated your supporting the software innovations.Only to add voice chat, there is not a big deal.if its possible thousands of users thanks full to you.Especially everything(nimbuzz,bb appl,sip,etc) blocked countrys.
    Thanks and waiting your positive reply.

  97. @Ajith
    Thanks for your suggestion, we will consider researching the possibilities of adding this feature in the future.

  101. I first used nimbuzz on nokia 95 8GB I could send and get pictures and use nimbuzz call and call skype but I see that’s its not working on my BlackBerry 8520 is it from nimbuzz itself or my phone is bugged.

  109. Hey, and what about skype-to-skype calls for blackberry? No? What makes it so impossible… Even my old nokia e51 could do it great! :( there is huge amount of people praying for skype-to-skype calls via wifi…

  110. latest version of nimbuzz has a bug that keeps you from editing your sound profiles on blackberry os 5… not good… you click on edit and nothing happens. uninstall nimbuzz and the problem is resolved…

  111. @Marcus
    Thanks for reporting, we will try to reproduce this and fix it, could you let us know which BlackBerry model are you using?

  112. @aj9604
    Thanks for reporting, we have been able to identify the issue and we are working in order to have it solved.

  113. @Mario
    Thanks for reporting.
    Try to unregister and register your SKype account again on Nimbuzz and let us know if you still cannot see all your Skype friends listed.
    We do not support calling on BB but we will research the possibilities of implementing it.

  114. I am still having problems accessing my profiles. How can I keep Nimbuzz, and still change my profiles?

  115. @hotgrl
    As mentioned previously, we are aware of the issue and our team is working in order to have it solved in the upcoming release.

  116. I’ve installed it on my BB bold 9000 os 5 and I have the same problems with the alert sounds, with no possibility to edit it in my profiles. Any idea to fix it? Best regards

  117. I’m using Blackberry 8520 With OS 5
    when I installed numbuzz 1.3.1 I can’t edit my sound or create my sound….

    Thanks :)

  118. @Indra

  120. One problem is:
    I tried to intsall ninmbuzz on my phone.
    with the firmware version 4 or 5 of my blackberry 8520 I found that I could no longer access to the profiles of my phone to manage ringtones etc..
    removing ninmbuzz I solved the problem.

    Thanks for reporting.
    Our team is aware of the issue and we are working in order to have this fixed in the upcoming release.

  123. @ffitri
    Thanks for reporting, we are currently aware of the issue and our team is working in order to have it fixed in the next version.

  124. I have a blackberry bold 9000 andd this new version of nimbuZz won’t open up once it downloads fine it wont open up giving me an error meSsage

  125. @kelly
    Which exact error do you receive? When does it appear?
    Please make sure you are using the latest version available (1.3.2)

  126. I have a BB 9700.

    I was using Nimbuzz 1.3.1 and had exactly the same issues with sound profiles as other users. I deleted it and the problems disappeared.

    A few days later I saw that Nimbuzz had updated their version to 1.3.2. I downloaded and installed it and had no issue with editing sound profiles


    I found that with Nimbuzz installed all alert tones (phone, messages, calendar alerts etc) were being routed to the ear speaker rather than to the phone’s loudspeaker. This made all alerts effectively inaudible.

    Once I re-deleted Nimbuzz, normal functionality was restored.

    Any comments Nibuzz developers? You are in danger of losing a user to IM+!!

  127. @leighdav
    Can you check if when you edit your Sound profiles> Set Ringtongtones/alerts> Other> Nimbuzz
    On Play sound> ChooseOut of holster
    Save changes
    Let us know if the issue persist.

  128. @zainab

  131. Hi,

    I just installed the application, and I think need some feature like chat room on nimbuzz.
    Why on blackberry and nokia has different menu.
    As my understanding if user installed that application menu will be completed than nokia.

    And,skype chat not exist anymore on nimbuzz isn’t it.
    Many thx for fixing the bugs on previous version.

  132. pls am using bb bold 9780 i am using nimbuzz and it is working well but the only problem is that i can’t add my facebook contact to chat. each time i try it will just be showing white screen but my yahoo and msn is working perfect pls what can i do to start using facebook chat?

  133. @Chika Ig
    have you already tried registering your FB account on and later on going to Nimbuzz on Mobile?
    Let us know

  134. just wanna ask, i’m using blackberry torch and im here in macau. so far the nimbuzz works fine with the facebook community and gmail but i’m having trouble singing in to my yahoo messenger. everything i try to connect they also tell me that username or password is incorrect.

    my friend is using blackberry 9700 and everything works fine but when she tries to fix mine it really doesnt work.

    i tried to use my other yahoo account but still not luck.
    can you help me?

  135. Good job with nimbuzz, I love this app. It has 2 flaw though,
    1: its slow when opening a chat session with someone you had a session before with. It freezes for a while the starts responding.
    2: I changed my password and nimbuzz on my bb was set to automatic log in. Ever since then I haven’t manage to login nimbuzz on th bb just says offline, tries reconnecting but still gives the same offline msg. Its not giving me the sign out or user name and password section. I can afford to delet it and reinstall it coz am in namibia now and there is no wifi so my internal bb browser (hotspots) will only work with wifi. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Thanks for the good work again.


  136. @cliff_cyk
    Thanks for reporting, Could you let us know if your Yahoo account is .com or has a different domain?
    Does your Yahoo username/password combination contain non alphanumerical characters?
    Let us know

  137. @steneo
    Are you referring to the BB version 1.3.4 ?
    In regards of your password change, don’t you get an error message saying that the password is incorrect and afterwards the option to try to introduce your new username/password combination?
    If not, please remove the app and download it again to try to introduce your new credentials.
    Let us know if the issue persist.

  138. Thanks for replying,

    @queralt escrich

    BlackBerry® 8900
    v5.0.0.900, And no it doesn’t let me know that the password is incorrect.

    I can’t afford to uninstall it coz am not in a wifi area and the internal browser(hotspot) that would download the new one only works with wifi, which I don’t have. Is it possible to make the browser use wap?

  139. HOW do I disable autologin feature on my nokia E71 ,kindly help me out as i want to login with different accounts.

    Yes, it should work. Could you please change the following settings in the Nimbuzz application?

    Select Menu > Settings > Connection Type > HTTP

    In case you know your connection type select manually the Start – up Connection also.

  184. Tried, but doesnt seem to connect. At this point I dont know if its my operator isssue or the application settings:

    however Ive changed the connection type to HTTP and left the start-up as automatic.
