It's BETA right now. Only thing it's missing is free voice calls. Full version will be released in coming weeks with voice calling as well.

Another service that sends a SMS for authentication and doesn't work with ported numbers on Telecom New Zealand.

I have a 2D number ported to XT and I got the authentication text ok. (and seem to for other services ok).

It seems to be a problem with Vodafone numbers ported to Telecom.

To be more honest, my VF number was ported to 2Degrees when they launched then to XT. Not sure if the VF connection still counts in the porting bit after 2D to XT.

the error message if you enter the code wrong says "Invalid Actiovation Code"  - might want to run that through a spell checker :-)

I didn't get sms through to my 027 number on 2degrees either.  At least viber provides an alternate means to verify - and automated phone call to give you a PIN - and that worked fine for me.


EDIT: actually the SMS did turn up in the end, it just took about 10 minutes, but by the time I got it I had already activated by phonecall

My SMS never arrived but when I tapped the message about not receiving it I was offered the option to receive a phone call.

The phone call came in quickly and my Viber Windows Phone was activated.

Looking through the app I wish it would go through my contacts and automatically filtered any of those already on Viber - is this possible?

Not sure on Windows Phone, but on Android there is a bar allowing you to filter by All, Viber and Favourites within the contacts section.

Yes, I see that option but I have about 3,000 contacts (Office 365, Twitter, Facebook, LinkdedIn) and none show up there?

That's how viber works for me. It automatically added the contacts in the viber app on my phone which have viber installed on their smartphones. I always add my contacts in +64 xxx format. Not sure if that helps.

You have "Viber" and "All contacts". My "Viber" list is empty, "All contacts" obviously is the entire contact list...

I have all my contacts (well, the ones in Office 365) in intl format, because I travel a bit overseas so it's the only way to have it really. Obviously phone numbers my contacts put on Facebook are (almost) always completely wrong (+6404 instead of +644 and so on).

Anyway to force it to scan your contacts?

Deactivate viber, uninstall and reinstall again to see if it fixes it. In my viber app, I only have contacts and conversation TAB. Under the contacts TAB, I only have viber contacts listed even though under 'filter contacts' settings, I have windows live, facebook and outlook ticked. I guess it scans all those networks and the phone numbers I have added for the people and then displays only the viber contacts which is how it should work anyway.

Tap the blue line "Viber contacts" and it will switch to "All contacts"...

Let's see if there's any update from Viber before I uninstall/install it again.
