Free text notifications! Introducing: Nimbuzz Ping

YouTube Preview Image

Not everyone owns a smartphone.

As a matter of fact, there are 4 billion “feature phones” in use today. But not every feature phone allows you to stay connected to your friends the same way smartphones do.

That’s why we launched Nimbuzz Ping!

Nimbuzz Ping let’s you receive free text notifications when Nimbuzz friends are trying to connect with you. You will appear online to your friends even if you have Nimbuzz turned off on your mobile phone.

Nimbuzz Ping works on all Java and Symbian mobile phones. Simply activate Nimbuzz Ping in your Nimbuzz Settings by verifying your phone number.

You will receive free text message (SMS) notifications whenever someone is trying to connect with you. It is up to you whether you want to start Nimbuzz to call or chat for free.

From now on you will no longer miss Amy’s friend request, Ben’s chat message, or Claire’s photos.

Nimbuzz Ping is completely free. Not only do you save battery power, you also don’t need to buy an expensive smartphone to stay connected.

Make sure you have the latest version of Nimbuzz installed and check if your mobile network operator (provider) supports it by looking at our list of partners.

We are launching Nimubzz Ping with Telkomsel in Indonesia and will roll it out to other networks soon. For more information please visit the Nimbuzz Ping FAQ page.

If you would like to be notified when Nimbuzz Ping will be available for your operator sign-up here.

Turn your phone into a smartphone with Nimbuzz Ping and stay connected to your friends!

  1. I liked Nim Buzz better… Used it a lot, and it used to work with ANY phone, including landlines. :(

  2. Hi!

    Thanks!

    Make sure you have your phone number registered on Nimbuzz.
    You can do that on Menu> My Account> Phone number.
    Once this is done you can go to:
    Menu> Settings> Nimbuzz Ping> Enable
    If this service is not provided by your operator a pop-up message will notify you.

    The latest version for Symbian devices is 3.0.2, have you tried it already?
    Let us know what you think of it! :)
    Cheers

  4. Thank you querlat , I did signed up there .
    the new version is cool,but Why you removed the “forward File” since the files we upload are already on the server why should we upload it again every time we want to send something to someone.
    The forward feature was great . :(

  5. Yes, Ali is right. We want nimbuzz to nimbuzz free message feature. and I also want to add that all our sent messages are now deleted automatically. Please Nimbuzz fix this problem. We want our sent item stored online

  6. Hi queralt some nimbuzz hacker are providing get nimbuzz avtar facilities in their own website when we put anybody nimbuzz user id in it, our photos comes on their screen in bigger size and many are copying our personal photos through that… Can u block this website address to prevent our nimbuzz account photos cant be stolen by anybody… http://avatar.nimbuzz.com/getAvatar?

  7. hello!im d one nimbuzz chatters,its very good idea to create this connection.
    Thank you for giving a chance to make this.
    More power to your company

  8. I already installed this newest version, but when I try to activate Nimbuzz Ping, pop-up message appears : “Your phone number +6281xxx could not be verified. Do you want to edit your phone number?” and this pop-up message always appears even my phone number already correct. Please advise…

  9. @ Queralt
    I wasn’t aware there is an update out yet. Normally nimbuzz should have displayed update notification, but it hasn’t, please inform developers about it. Thanx

  10. @ Queralt
    I tried downloading with UCWEB, I got error cannot download file. Then i tried downloading with Opera Mini 5, the download was successful, the moment i open the file, i got this error “Unable To Open File, File type not supported”. I have checked carefully, the download was successful, and its clearly Nimbuzz.sisx but still error and cannot install. This is the first time i got such type of error. I guess, i will stick with 3.0.1 meanwhile this issue get fixed.

  11. See, I thought its only me that have with “feature not supported” things.

    I have download the newest from the web for my Nokia N92, but when I installed, it said that “feature not supported” and I can’t used nimbuzz on my N92..

  12. i install the new version of nimbuzz and i also verified ma no.(aircel) and they said ur operator not suppuorts instead in operator list i checked that aircel and idea is supourt in india………….jatin(india)

  13. @ ashley
    I agree with you , nimbuzz should block that link.
    @ queralt
    would it be possible if nimbuzz linked with facbook ?
    I mean when I write a personal message in nimbuzz it should appear in my wall posts , and we should have the option to post it on facebook or not ..

    just like the new yahoo status .. you get to share it on facebook and twitter.

    that would be nice :)
