OK, 

So I got Viber on my phone. 

It pulled some of my contacts from my People contacts list but not others, at least on of the contacts it didn't pull over I am sure is on Viber. 

What's the best way to add new contacts or find people that are on Viber? 

Thanks. 





Didn't anybody tell you I was a hacker?

Make sure you have correct email addresses and latest phone numbers. I know this changes quite frequently (why? why? why?) but if you have the same people in Outlook, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter then you have a chance of having the latest contact information making it easier to find others...

A very good point. Thanks.

Yeah, I don't know why this changes as much as it does but there are people I have multiple emails and numbers for.

I'll get on that and see how it goes.

Don't know why people change phone numbers so often, I'm still rocking my 6 digit 021 number, I must have had it more than 12 years now.

I thought viber contacts works by their current registered phone number on that device?

when they insert a sim card viber won't work unless it verifies the phone number, so it doesn't link by emails etc

Yes, but it finds contacts by THEIR phone number and email.

I see :D (i'm still old fashioned - my contacts are pure numbers stored on my SIM with backup sims of course - disabled every other form :D)
