Friend of mine had lots of problems with installing 2.0 - ended up not being able to use it all - took a bit of fixing.

Viber 2.0.1 should fix all the problems (in download and in functionality).

Please uninstall your current versions and install 2.0.1 from AppStore (and also tell your friends to do so).

If you encounter problems, let me know.

Ok, bit of an airhead question here but can I use this from overseas to call my OH here for free without international roaming charges?

The answer is yes.
Make sure tough that when you are abroad, you are not using the local 3G network, because then your cellular company could charge you a lot of money for roaming.

Using WiFi when you are abroad to make Viber calls ensures that the call is absolutely free, even if it's international.

hi

i have been using viber for a while now and am very happy with it

can you tell me if and when i send a text message from here indoors / wifi area so "free " does the receiver pay any charge for it if they are not in a wifi area

if i send a text out of wifi what allowance does it take up

also any ideas when this will be available to blackberry as half the people i know are on this

all the best steve

They will pay for data / use their data allowance. The data involved will be so negligible that you wouldn't even consider it...unless of course you were roaming overseas.

You should also check out Whatsapp...it's also for messaging but has lots of features the Viber version doesn't have...plenty of people use it. It's also on Blackberry.

i all,

We have been working hard in the past several weeks on a first version of Viber on Blackberry, and we are now excited to give you a first look.
You can find it here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...&type=1&ref=nf

In addition, I'd like to announce that we are at the very final stages of the closed-group Beta project, and will soon make the Beta version public!

For more info feel free to ask me here and make sure you follow us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/viber

Thanks,
Viber.
