Nimbuzz previous versions were good, but after installing the new version i often get “connection lost, reconnecting” “number of sessions exceeded, try again later” “oops the facebook/gtalk/yahoo is not working we are looking into it” etc etc. This is irritating, previously i never got such problems.

    In regards of texting (sending SMS) We do not offer this possibility.

    Nimbuzz calling is absolutely free. Select an IM buddy from your contact list (Yahoo, Gtalk, and Nimbuzz) and choose the Call option. Nimbuzz will connect you to your IM buddy instantly and for free.

    To call to phone numbers you will require a SIP account or NimbuzzOut credits.
