Nimbuzz 2.0 for Android available for VoIP addicts!

YouTube Preview Image

Here is some outlandish news for our Android users, Nimbuzz 2.0 for Android mobiles is a VoIP paradise and ready for download.

The new version packs pretty amazing features, like:

  • NimbuzzOut calling – cheap international calling to mobile phones and landlines
  • A new dialer tab – so you can call mobile phones and landlines via NimbuzzOut or any of  our SIP partners (Google/Gizmo5, Sipgate, Xeloq, T-Pad, VoIPax, Gulfsip, IPS, Badatel and more)
  • Friend suggestions – see which of your phonebook contacts are already using Nimbuzz
  • Facebook Connect – no more disconnecting errors!

Android comprises 33% of US smartphone sales, so let’s take a closer look at what our Nimbuzz features are adding to that.

NimbuzzOut calling has landed on Android devices.  You can make super cheap international calls to mobile phones and landlines worldwide right from Nimbuzz on your Android mobile.  For example, you can call India for $0.082/min, or the USA and UK for just $0.020/min. Curious about our calling to other countries? Check the cheap NimbuzzOut rates.

Android VoIP calling

Friend suggestions automatically detects which of your phone contacts are also Nimbuzz users and creates a list of suggested friends from which you can choose who to add to your Nimbuzz contact list. The big advantage of this feature is that once you add them, you will be able to see when they are online, so instead of a paid call (using your minutes), you can choose to call them for free over your data connection :D.  Nice, right?

The Dialer tab allows you to call mobile phone and landline numbers that you don’t have in your address book. Best of all, as soon as I dial the number NimbuzzOut shows me how much will I pay per minute for the call.

The tab has another really useful feature; it allows you to set a permanent country prefix. This helps a lot when you are abroad, for example, and are calling the same country over and over again. No need to remember the country code, simply dial your friend’s or family’s number as you are used to :).

Android chat app

Facebook Connect means that we are using Facebook’s official API to connect you to Facebook Chat. This will eliminate all disconnect errors, improve the security of your Facebook data, allow you to see the status message of your Facebook friends (love this one!) and you can use your custom Facebook username to login – instead of your email address (more on Custom usernames). Make sure you reconnect to Facebook once you have updated Nimbuzz on your Android phone.

If you want to get Nimbuzz on your Android mobile, just go to the Android Market via your mobile phone and search for it or if you are using QR scanner just scan the code below.

The guys over at Phandroid are already talking about their pleasant Nimbuzz VoIP experience.  Be sure to give it a try.

  1. I like the new color design of the settings pages, which integrates better into Android’s look (and still looks like Nimbuzz style). Something similar would be nice for the contact list, too.
    Am also happy with the new official Facebook-Chat-API and the possibility to see my contacts’ status messages, but unfortunatly my FB groups aren’t synced to Nimbuzz. This would BTW be a general wishlist item: Map Nimbuzz groups to the groups of the IM networks. This way one wouldn’t need to reassign groups for all contacts, if one needs to delete and recreate an IM account, which happens to be necessary sometimes.
    I also like the integration of the devices contacts into Nimbuzz – and friend suggestions was something I’ve waited for some time now. BTW: Seems like Nimbuzz checks only mail addresses and/or phone numbers; wouldn’t it be possible to check the roster, too? If I have ICQ UIN 1234567 on my roster, and 1234567 is also registered at Nimbuzz…
    Regarding integration, the other direction would also be nice, though: Presence information and chat application integrated into Android’s contacts list (for 2.0+ devices at least). This is something that no Android chat app supports until now – besides Google Talk – and I would really like to see this. I think that shouldn’t be that hard to implement after having a quick look in the API reference.

  2. Thank you. I had been really worries about my NimbuzzOut balance when you stopped supporting Windows Mobile. I have now installed Android on my HD2 and was sad when Nimbuzz didn’t have anything for Android (substantial).
    I really think Nimbuzz is the best IM client for mobile.

  3. @RostOne
    Could you please be more specific on your query?
    Do you receive any error message? When? What does it exactly say?
    Which device and Nimbuzz version do you use?
    Let us know and we will come back to you

  4. Good step forward with the dialer and everything. However, I cannot call through SIP. The call goes through and the phone I call actually rings, but then the call is completely silent – no sound goes through either way :(

  5. @nelty
    I think you refer to SkypeIn number to call out.
    Nimbuzz will use your Skype credit to call the number that is shown on the receiver as the caller ID hould be the same behaviour as a regular skype client.
    Regards

  6. nimbuzz crash when i open the notification settings:

    android 1.6 nimbuzz 2.0.0 on galaxy i7500

  7. @Cliff
    We do not proxy SIP Voice Streams, which means that Nimbuzz just connects you to the Sip servers and the audio and voice portion of the call, is managed by your SIP provider.

    For assistance on this issue please contact your SIP Support Team and let them know.

    Thanks & Regards

  8. @Swen
    Thanks for your feedback and coments. Much appreciated.
    We will forward your suggestions to our Development team and they will consider implementing them.
    Kind Regards

  9. @matteo
    Thanks for reporting, we will reproduce this issue and fix it asap.
    Kind Regards

  10. Does anybody know if NIMBUZZ w/skype works on Samsung Intercept?
    I downloaded the new version, but how do you connect to skype account? The online contacts are only phone and facebook contacts?

  11. Can’t log-in to Gizmo5, just hangs then Force Closes. When entering the setting manually it connects just fine, but when I receive a call they can’t hear me and I can’t hear them. N1, 2.2

  12. I just want to say I am very happy with the upgraded version. Me having SkypeOut acct for myself and my wife I find it really great.
    I have an issue though. On my cellphone it doesn’t connect to FB Chat..
    And on my wife’s it never connects to Skype, she has a Sony ericcsson Xperia X10 running Android 1.6. We both have different cellphones (mine’s Nexus 2.2) and different accounts with nimbuzz and skype….
    Can you help????

  13. I cannot connect to gtalk account. it says connecting and and nothing happend. i cannot even delete the gtalk account because of that….any suggestions? and yes I use it on my nexus one

  14. @Kjell G
    Yes, we do support your device, you can download the applictaion directly from the Android Market.
    To register your SKype account go to Menu>Settings>Accounts> Skype
    @Sokugen
    Could you describe when/how does the application force closes?
    In regards of audio issues when using other SIP providers, We do not proxy SIP Voice Streams, which means that Nimbuzz just connect s you to the Sip server and the audio and voice connection is managed by your SIP provider.
    If you have this kind of issues, please contact your SIP Support Team and let them know .
    Regards
    @Pabloiac
    Coudl you please be more descriptive on your query in regards of being not able to connect to your FB and Skype accounts?
    Do you get any error message when trying to do so? or you do not know how to register those accounts?
    Let us know and we will come back to you.
    @Homer S
    Try to unregsiter and register again your Gtalk account.
    Regards

  15. Dear, can u please tell me that I have installed the nimbuzz for my Nokia 5800 Music Edition (Original), but the community list does not show nor Skype neither my Skype contacts therein. please can you solve my problem?

  16. on my wife’s phone it just doesn’t connect to Skype, it says connecting and then , ‘you have been disconnected” , when I try to log in to my skype acct on her Nimbuzz account I get same issue, while on my nimbuzz acct I can log in to both Skype accts.
    My wife’s phone is a Sony Xperia X10 running Android X10.
    My Fb issue has been resolved. Thank you.
    Side question: Could it be that she opened her Nimbuzz online (where Skype is not showing as an option) and that is why her skype on her mobile Nimbuzz is never connecting?

  17. Hi. Nimbuzz looks great for use with Skype, but will it allow me to use Skype Out with my existing monthly Skype unlimited plan that I already pay for, or will it force me to buy new Skype or Nimbuzz credit separately in order to use Skype Out?

  18. Just started having a problem with Skype…..disconnected randomly, then upon trying to reconnect, says Oops, the service is not fully working now?

  19. i can not see the online contacts for Skype. i can only see all contacts as offline. i also can not see the test call. my wife tried to call me and I got the call but no sound on my device.

    Skypeout credit is not showing also. Please help to fix these problems.
    Thanks.

  20. Looks good but does not work with SkypOut. All attempts to dial number via SkypeOut result in call termination with message that number is engaged. Number is not engaged and can be contacted via SkypeOut on a Laptop. If it worked it would be useful, particularly if apps to sd were enabled. As it is it takes up far too much space for something that does not provide the fundamental functionality it is advertised to deliver. Uninstalling until I hear reports that it works.

  21. @Fayyaz Khalil
    Please try again and check Options> Communnities> SKype
    Let us know if you are not able to see that community, indicate the last time (approx. date and time) when you faced this issue.
    @Pabloiac
    The fact that she registered her account on the webchat should not affect when she wants to register her skype account.
    Please do contact our support team directly to investigate this issue further.
    Indicate both usernames skype id and Nimbuzz id in order to make a double check in our database.
    @earthzero7
    If you use SkypeOut as your main SIP provider the calls you do via Nimbuzz will be charged via Skype using your monthly plan and if you do not have that plan your Skype credits.
    @mdiroff
    Please indiacte when was the last time you faced this issue (approximate date and time)
    Thanks & Regards

  22. @Mohammad
    Thanks for reporting.
    SOme skype contacts take a bit longer to load their status, in case you think a contacvt is showing as offline when they are online, try to interact with that contact and their status will load faster.
    You can also try to unregister and register your account again.
    @Luca
    No, this status is not available yet, we will consider implementing it in the future.
    @hasan
    Thanks for your suggestion, we aim to support this feature in the future.
    Stay tuned to our blog for more news about this.
    @eyesparky
    Could you let us know when was the last time you faced this issue?
    Please indicate which is your device and nimbuzz version in use.

  23. I use N1 2.2, i use nimbuzz & they can hear me but i cant hear anything pls help, i already purchases credit as well, thanks in advance.

  24. @Samy
    Thanks for reporting.

    In order to investigate this issue, we need to request some more information, please let us know the following:

    -In which country are you located?

    -Which Network provider do you use?

    -Which type of connection do you use when placing a call?

    -Is the call receiver able to hear you but you cannot hear the other side or is it the other way around?

    -When you call to a Nimbuzz contact, do you also face this issue?

    -If you call using another type of connection, do you obtain the same result?

    Let us know and we will come back to you as soon as possible.

    Regards

  25. I have the same problems as Samy mentioned. I live in Qatar. I use qtel and I use Wifi for connections. I couldn’t see the skypeout credit. I have not tried to call nimbuzz account but i did test the echo support and the feedback was too bad.

  26. Using Nimmbuzz 2.0.0 build 7981-8052 on Samsung Moment running Android 2.0 over Sprint network in US. No sound on SKYPE calls (either way), and SKYPE chats have 10 to 30 second delays. Any ideas? Otherwise a great product, but is unfortunately not useful to me without SKYPE connectivity.

  27. Very nice update but I already reported there’s no sound on the Samsung i5700. A known problem so this info is for others i5700 users.
    Regards

  28. @Henny
    Indeed we are aware of some issues with the audio reported by Android users.
    If others like you are facing this issue, please inform us of the following:
    -device (brand & model)
    -does it happen when calling to a Nimbuzz contact?
    -where are you located?
    -Which network provider do you use?
    -which type of connection do you use?
    Kind Regards

  29. @Bill Collum
    Thanks for the info.
    Could you let us know if the audio problem also appears when you are using Wi-Fi instead of 3g?
    Thanks for your time!

  30. Hi, Thanks for the upgrade..looks nice and better. Please how is the battery/power consumption?..how does it compare with previous versions, and other clients like ebuddy?..Thanks

  31. I have no sound on Skype when I make a normal Skype call and when I SkypeOut. Absolutely no audio. The sound is dead. I have an LG GT540 (Optimus). I have the problem on WiFi and 3G in France. Please update your wonderful application and fix this problem. Thank you!

  32. Hi,great app!

    But just like Cliff above, the VOIP portion does not work for me.

    It dials out fine, it rings fine, but there is no sound when the other party answers :(

    All other VOIP apps I tried work just fine with the same settings, so it looks like it’s something with Nimbuzz.

    I’d love to be able to use it both for Skype and with my VOIP provider, as then I can have Nimbuzz running in the background and use it to make and receive calls.

    Thanks!

    Samsung Galaxy S, same with WiFi or 3G.

  33. @Ry
    Thanks for the info, when you say “the VOIP portion does not work for me.”
    You mean you have tested the calling feature to call: Nimbuzz contacts, Skype contacts and other SIP provider, and any call had successfull audio?
    Thanks for your time.
    Cheers

  34. @Terry
    Thanks for the info provided, we are looking into your issue.
    We expecto have it solved in upcoming releases.
    Cheers

  35. @Kenniy
    We try to improve the battery life, please inform us if you experience a fast battery drown.
    Regards

  36. Hi, also no audio reported on version 2 too, on my samsung i5700. It is a well known error in the sound system from samsung. I understood Nimbuzz is working on a solution.

  37. @Henny
    Thanks for your comment, we are investigating if this could be the case, but we are still investigating it in order to provide a solution soon.
    Cheers

  38. I have also audio problems on Galaxy S I9000 – absolutely no audio on Skype Out – the ringing can be heard but neither input nor output works.
    I then installed Andorid 2.2 XXJF3 firmware yesterday – then I tried on Wi-Fi – it worked but not on 3G today!

    I even tried to install first from the Android market and then from the download link in the hope that a newer version is out there but no use.
    Pity, everything else seems to be fine but without audio no use – please, update!

  39. @Star
    Thanks for the info provided, could you let us know which network provider do you use?
    Do you also face this issue (on both Wi-Fi & 3g) when calling to a Nimbuzz contact?
    Let u sknow, thanks for your time!

  40. UPDATE: Skype calls and SkypeOut DO NOT work on my 2G and 3G network in France. However, I can use Skype calls and SkypeOut when I am connected to a WiFi network.

  41. I tried nimbuzz on iphone 3gs and I tested the echo test call and it is working perfectly. There is a big difference between nimbuzz for Iphone anf nimbuzz for my Android phone galaxy s.

    Please do something for the galaxy s phone. I also tested nimbuzz call to another nimbuzz user on 3gs and the call quality is not good.

    I am sure that the problem is because of the application is still new to Android. Just waiting for an update to solve the issue.

  42. @Mohammad
    As mentioned previously, we are investigating this issue.
    As in previous posts-replies, we are requesting some information in order to help us figure out how to reproduce the issue, could you also let us know the following:
    -Device (model & brand) + Nimbuzz version in use
    -Country where you are located
    -Network provider
    -Type of connection you use when placing a call
    -If you use 3g, could you try placing a call on Wi-Fi? Do you get the same audio issue?
    -Have you tried calling a Nimbuzz contact? Do you get the same audio result?
    thanks for your time!

  43. @Terry
    Thanks for the update, could you please check with your network provider that this is not a restriction on their side?
    Thanks!

  44. I already using Samsung Galaxy S I 9000 with android 2.1, will be upgraded to 2.2 within two months.

    Network is qtel in Qatar, and I only tested on wifi.

    Already tested with Nimbuzz user and audio is a big problem. I tested just now to Yahoo also, and I can see the other person very clear while he can not hear me at all. The other person can hear his or her voice only.

    I can not also access the skype callout credit.

    By the way fring had the same issue exactly, and they already fixed it. Now I can do the test call very clear on fring.

    Please let me know if you need anymore info.

    Nimbuzz is better as it has yahoo call as well.

  45. Hi,
    using SE x10 mini pro:

    Skype works on Wifi but on 3G the call is only established: no audio from both sides.

    Operator is the Swedish Telenor.

    No problem with Skype call on 3G with my other phone (Nokia N900) which means no 3G operator issues.

    It’s a pity because Nimbuzz is (was) the only VoIP that worked.

  46. I just downloaded nimbuzz version 2.0. When I try to add my skype account i get the message “oops the service is not currently working. We are looking into this.” . I have a SE Xperia X10 android 1.6, is this temporary? Does this no longer work with skype? Any help with this would be appreciated.

  47. I tried Nimbuzz on my LG GT540 in the UK on network T Mobile. Skype works on wifi fine but on 3G it doesn’t get past trying to connect – I don’t even get to ringing.

    Fantastic app, though and I hope you managed to get this fixed to make it even better :). I’m moving away from home to another country but having skype on my phone will be a godsend for keeping in touch with my family :).

  48. @Mohammad
    Thanks for the info provided.
    We will try to reproduce the issue and come back to you as soon as we have some more information.
    @Svenne
    Interesting, are you using Skype app on the N900?@
    @laporte.brandon
    Could you please try again to register your Skype account, if you face this issue again, please inform us of the date & time you faced this for last.
    @Maddy
    Could you check with your network provider if there is any restriction in their side when using VoIP over 3g?
    Thanks all for your time and collaboration :)
    Regards!

  49. Dear Queralt,
    I can understand your’e asking for network restrictions on 3g voip. I tried in my earlier version on my samsung i5700 another provider that does not restrict anything; T-Mobile. I specially changed from Vodafone. There’s nothing to blame for because it had no effect en usinbg Fring in the version where Skype was still supported, Vodafone worked fine.
    I hope this info will also help us out.
    Regards
    Henny

  50. @Henny
    We have to check all the possibilities, while we test at our offices, we are just asking to users to double check with their providers.
    If the provider does not have any restriction, we will continue researching.
    Cheers

  51. Dear Queralt,
    An earlier version of Fring had the same problem on the Samsung phones. In the latest version the problem was resolved. I’m sure Nimbuzz (sound)quality is on a higher level for me. So the question: Isn’t possible to ask your colleques from Fring what they did to resolve this problem. Do you have any contacts?
    Regards,
    Henny

  52. @Henny
    I do not think this will be possible.
    Rest assured our team is working on a fix for this.
    Kind Regards

  53. Dear Queralt,
    thanks for your reply.

    I’m using Skype on N900 (is build in the Nokia OS) but I like Nimbuzz better since you can have more VOIP account and MSN in the same app (which Nokia doesn’t have).

    I have used Nimbuzz before on N95 and worked fantastic (on both WiFi and 3G).

    I hope you will find out what causing this 3G problem.

    Regards,

    Svenne

  54. Updated to most recent. Connects to facebook but doesn’t show any friends on or offline. Skype won’t connect. Wish I never updated.

  55. Skype is working my mistake but facebook won’t load my friends list. Says it is online but I can’t even view offline friends

  56. @Servvs
    Could you please be more specific, are you not able to see your FB contacts on Nimbuzz?
    Which device and Nimbuzz version do you use?
    Let us know!

  57. I am using the latest version of Nimbuzz currently in the market. My device is the Htc hero. It worked fine with the previous version. I regret updating

  58. Hi, I’m facing a problem with the Nimbuzz Skype call using Samsung Galaxy S (Android Eclair 2.1, update 1) – connected via WiFi to the net, the other side is using a PC. I can clearly hear what the other side is saying, but the other way round, it doesn’t work that well – the other side only hears fractals of my speech. It seems, there is something wrong with the audio gain control on my side. The Skype call via Truphone software works fine and without any problems. The Nimbuzz version is 2.0.0, build 7981.8052. Could you please advise?

  59. I have used Nimbuzz for a while now and I love it. However voice does not seem to work on my new Xperia x10 Mini for an SIP/VOIP service. Does anyone know how to get this running on this phone? Wifi and 3G do not work.

  61. @MJ80

  63. Just adding to the list of people complaining about getting no sound on skype over 3G. Sound over WiFi works fine, but nothing over 3G.
    Device: HTC Desire
    Android: 2.2 (build number 2.09.405.8 CL218634)
    Nimbuzz: 2.0.0 Build 7981.8052

    Thanks for the great work!

  64. Hi,
    Nimbuzz is great. However, my Skype call does not work over 3G (over Wi-Fi it is OK). I rings but no sounds. I have Verizon, HTC Incredible, Android 2.1
    Thanks for a great product!

  65. One more thing, if I am on 3G (Verizon, HTC Incredible) I sometimes have a trouble to login. I need to get Wi-Fi first to login and then if I switch back to 3G it works OK. Plus (when on 3G only), I will not get any massages from ICQ, Skype, MSN unless I start a conversation first (others see me online and I see other people online). Over Wi-Fi it works great. Over 3G I have to first send a message to someone to start a conversation and only after that I will get all massages from the person.

  69. Samsung galaxy s
    Calls work fine with wifi but with 3g no sound at either end.
    android 2.1
    with vodafone NZ, they don’t interefere with any traffic they say and have no rules against voip (yet)

  70. I have a Samsung Vibrant on T-Mobile running A 2.1
    I have major problems with Skype. I can hear the recipient of my call but they cannot hear me clearly. Apparently they hear a muffled sound like I’m in a car but they cannot hear complete words. The recipient of my call was a Skype user in S Africa.
    I connect to Echo but cannot hear anything.
    I’ve tried Wi-fi and 3G but it seems to make no difference.
    Skype text works fine.
    Sometimes the Skype users on line disappear and then reappear if I exit and return. I have Groups activated in the Contacts view.
    Anything you can do?

  71. Nimbuzz solves my Skype problem, but at 10 megabytes it is the largest app I have on my Droid.

    Please allow installation on the SD card !

    Otherwise Nimbuzz will be the 1st app I uninstall when I find a smaller Skype solution.

  72. @Stuart
    Thanks for reporting, could you let us know if this audio issue appears when calling to Nimbuzz contacts or just when calling to another IM community? If yes, which one?
    Let us know!

  73. @Roy
    Thanks for the info provided.
    Our team is already looking into this audio issues, we expect to have a solution for it in the next version.

  74. Great app but also no sound. Strange how it works, sometimes voice in gmail works, on wifi, sometimes, or mostly, it doesn’t, skype seems to work but no voice when on 3g. Just very inconsistent, hope it gets fixed as I feel this is the one app I would really support! Xperia x10 android 1.6

  75. @Wynand
    Thanks for informing us.
    We are currently aware of this issue and our team is already looking into it.
    We expect to have this issue solved in upcoming releases.
    Kind Regards

  76. I have an Android (v1.7.4) apad tablet pc and nimbuzz works great, but voice calls don’t. I tried TruPhone to make a call and it worked all right, but nimbuzz didn’t

    I couldn’t find any hardware setup features on nimbuzz… how could I fix my problem? I bought this tablet to use skype (and perhaps nimbuzzOut later) to make calls but nothing is working really well

    besides I didn’t know about the skype-verizon stuff on the android and official skype client does not allow calls through wifi and Im not residing on the US so Verizon minutes are not possible for me

    regards

  78. I can’t add my skype account. When I add the account I get the following error:
    Oops, the service is not fully working now…

  79. It’s a great piece of software. My only beef with it is that it doesn’t persistently stay connected. Let’s say I logged in and everything goes fine. I have the icon in the notification bar all good. Then I come back say after an hour, the notification bar icon is still the same (which should mean i’m still connected). But, when I send a message from elsewhere to myself, I don’t receive it. I open up nimbuzz and then it says Connecting. And of course gets connected. Then everything is fine for a while again and the cycle repeats. I hope I’ve explained the situation clearly. Basically it’ll be great if nimbuzz stays connected.

  80. Nimbuzz doesn’t work on my HTC Tattoo. It refused to use Skype as the voip service and won’t add my Skype contacts. Something about service not working. Is this another fring fiasco? What’s up with Skype anyway. The iphone has had an app for ages!

  81. @ferid
    Could you please try again?
    If you still face some issues, please contact directly support@nimbuzz.com and inform the last time (include date&time) you tried to register your Skype account and the error message you receive.
    @sekisho
    You appear to your friends as notifiable, so they can reach you while the application is on the background, but not fully consuming battery, otherwise it would drain your battery pretty fast.

    @P.Drummond
    Try to register your Skype account again, we were working on the gateway this week, and as a consequence some instability could be experienced.
    Regards

  82. First Nimbuzz-out test was interesting. I called across the room and had them speak 1 to 10 slowly and the delay was at least one second. Doesn’t sound like much, but my first call failed because the person picked up and said hello quickly and I didn’t hear it at all! By the time I thought to say something on the ‘silent’ line, he’d hung up. Sound quality was excellent though.
    I managed one Skype voip connection this week!

  83. nimbuzz running on galaxy s off fido network in canada skype out works over wifi but has audio issues with echo where the person being called hears themselves (maybe just an audio issue being too loud) even on lowest volume seems kind of loud. also nimbuzz to nimbuzz ends up echo to the point it becomes high pitched squeaking one phone on wifi and the other on 3g. and skypeout calls on 3g. it rings the other person can pick up but absolutely no audio on either ends.

  84. @cam
    Sorry for this inconvenience.
    Our technical team is working to have this issue solved as soon as possible.

  85. I can’t add my skype account. When I add the account I get the following error:
    Oops, the service is not fully working now…

    I got the same thing. I am using Samsung Galaxy Vibrant which is an Android phone.

  86. I have a HTC Tattoo.
    When I perform a Skype-out call no audio can be heard for both me and the contacted person.
    I have tried last time two minutes ago.
    With previous nimbuzz version the call through skype was OK……just the new version isn’t working.
    Where can I find the older version? I would like to use it till this problem is fully solved.
    Thanks
    Vincenzo

  87. additional info…..
    I have problems with both 3G and WiFi.
    No problem at all with skype on HTC trinity (my second phone)..means no skype problem or operator problem.

  112. @Haroon
    Thanks for reporting, could you let us know if this happens when calling a Nimbuzz contact or another contact from an IM community? If yes, which one?
    Or does it happen when using NimbuzzOut?
    Let us know

  113. Hello all,
    I am having the same problem with Haroon. Many people after updating SE X10 mini to Android 2.1 started having issues with Nimbuzz.
    I checked the questions of Queralt: it doesn’t work when I call another Nimbuzz contact, neither with Gmail contact and also with my SIP provider. In all of them, I hear them perfectly, but my microphone is mute.
    Interesting also is that after I close Nimbuzz, it crashes and I need to force stop. After that, my mic doesn’t work as well in regular phone calls! The only way to solve it is to restart the phone.
    Had to uninstall Nimbuzz, but I look forward for the team fixing it and I return. :)

  114. @rita
    We are aware of the issue with the muted microphone on devices which use OS older than 2.2, hence the reason why we suspect this is an issue with the OS. In these conditions VoIP does not work properly because the microphone is deactivated during the call.
    We normally recommend an OS update to solve the problem but unfortunately, the Froyo update is not yet available for your device. In these conditions we don’t have a solution for your case at the moment, but we are focused on finding alternatives.
    Regards

  115. About the same problem here at Aruba. Just downloaded Nimbuzz app on my Galaxy I9000. Tried to communicate with PC via wifi. Phone rings and PC can clearly hear everything spoken on the phone’s end but phone does not hear anything spoken via the pc. PC soundtest works ok. Skype here is not supported by provider, however on my HTC legend I managed to download a skype android version, working perfectly. Although I managed to download it on the Galaxy it does not work, I cannot sign in anymore.
    Can anyone give me an advice?
    Thanks!

  152. Hi,

    i am using Samsung Galaxy S2, i also have the same issue but is working fine in my Nokia E Series. i feel it is a common problem of Nimbuzz in Android.

    Jomcy

  153. in that case its a humble request from my side that u should consider launching a different version of nimbuzz that supports these older versions of android , so that some people like me who are addicted to nimbuzz continue to enjoy the grace of this tremendous software.

    another small problem is that while running nimbuzz when we unlock the phone out of the autolock the chat thread shows the older part and user has to crawl down to recent messages, inspite of which it should show the recent messages.

    thanks for your reply.
    regards.

  154. hi i am using Nimbuzz on my Galaxy S2 and it’s working . But i have a strange problem that when i do any voice activity, call on Nimbuzz the speaker stops operating.Then when i stop Nimbuzz program speaker starts to play all required sounds very low. i am using the latest version.
