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.

  7. awesome update. But certain numbers are being spammed by ppl who set it as their default number on nimbuzz. For example the facebook sms update number, this keeps giving friend suggession of all those who used it as their default contact. :(

  21. @ 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.

    Yasmin Sebba June 10th, 2011

    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.)

  116. @Habil – The Java phone require the Heap memory in order to run the Java application on the phone. You can try a few things to enhance its performance:
    – Download the latest 1.9.5 version from get.nimbuzz.com
    – Remove a few Java application from the device in order to create the Heap memory which is required for Nimbuzz to run
    – If the number of friends in your contact list are very high, please reduce the number of friends as the heap memory expands when the contacts are added.

  132. @Danny – 1. Open a chat screen from user that you want to delete
    2. Open the Menu from chat there is view profile button
    3. Click view profile button, when view profile screen is open then again press the menu button
    4. When Menu is open there are delete and block button options with help user can delete or block the contact.

    Incase, you do not find the mentioned options available, please take screenshots and send them to support@nimbuzz.com for further investigation.
