Looking for Nimbuzz friends? This update will help!

We have upgraded our popular friend suggestions feature to be even more awesome and easy to use. This was a server side update so if you are using the latest Nimbuzz mobile version you already have it (no download needed) ;) .

As you already know the friend suggestions feature detects which of your phone contacts are already using Nimbuzz. The new update will automatically add them to your Nimbuzz contact list so you can call and chat with your friends for free instead of paying for operator minutes and SMS text messages.

We have also improved the phone number matching algorithm for better phone number(s) recognition in international and national format. ;) . This will increase the chances of finding new Nimbuzzers in your phonebook.

Any of the suggested contacts can be manually deleted if necessary and they won’t be suggested again (yes, in case you change your mind you can add them again manually :P ).

We hope you will enjoy this feature and as always we are glad to hear your feedback.

  3. Oi,

    Gostaria de fazer novas amizades em todo o Brasil e Exterior com pessoas preocupadas em solucionar alguns problemas de nosso amado planeta!

    Tenho certeza que nao posso fazer muito, mas o sonho que se sonha sozinho é apenas um sonho… Mas o sonho que muitos sonham deixa de ser um sonho…

  8. @ prajnyan
    If you registered with a random phone number (for example the facebook update number) the other person should have that phone number registered in the phone book.
    So for you to get connected, you both have to have that same random phone number on your phone book.
    Regards.

  9. @ Eric
    Could you try this to see if it works ?

  14. @ prajnyan
    Thanks for your support ! In addition to my last comment ; The number you were talking about is it like a number shortcode, like 32665 for the US? What is the exact value of this phonenumber on your device? Does it start with a plus-sign like international numbers?
    Let us know,
    Thanks !

  15. @ philp
    This is because not all communities are created equal, so this setting will not create the same effect on each community. Your status will be “offline/invisible” on Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo, Google Talk, Gadu-Gadu and MySpace; and “away” on Nimbuzz, and all other communities (Facebook, Hyves, StudiVZ, AIM, ICQ, etc.)
    Regards.

  16. @ Isreal
    Do you mean you want to upload a picture to use as avatar ? Or do you mean you want to send a picture to one of your contacts ?
