Viber for Blackberry Download : Viber Blackberry app release date

The wait for viber blackberry application finally seems to be getting over (soon). The viber forums and facebook page is full of questions about viber blackberry application. All blackberry users just want to download viber for blackberry application and start making free calls. If blackberry messenger is one hot thing on blackberry, then viber for blackberry will surely prove to be the hottest :P. Viber for blackberry application is getting so hot that people have even switched to android and iPhone mobiles.

Viber has proved to be a great success on iPhone, Android mobile phones. Not only you can use Viber just on your mobile, but you can use Viber on iPod Touch, iPad and even Viber on PC!

UPDATE (8th May 2012) : We are exited to announce that Viber for Blackberry is finally released.
Here is an update from Viber team.
-------------------------------------------------
Hi everyone,

We are excited to announce that Viber for BlackBerry Beta and Windows Phone 7 have both been released today! These milestone lets BlackBerry and WP7 users connect freely with our 60 million Viber users, and is a major step towards the full versions, which will have our free HD-voice calling. Get it, you’ll like it.

We are here to collect your feedbacks, questions and ideas - feel free to let us know your thoughts at any time :)

Best regards
the Viber Team.
-------------------------------------------------  
So many of our readers have posted about switching to android or iphone just because viber for blackberry was not available. Now Viber Blackberry application has been finally released, so no need to switch to any other phone. This is a great move by Viber. Now you can make viber free chat from blackberry to android, and soon free calls from blackberry to iphone!

Unfortunately, the new viber blackberry beta application do not support voice calls (which is not good!). The current viber blackberry application supports messaging :  users can send message, which does include sending photos, texts and exchanging location information. 

Also this Viber Blackberry app is of beta quality. So if you find a issue with viber blackberry application, just report it to the support or report it here itself. Its better to get all the bugz fixed for a better viber free calling experience.

Viber application allows you to make calls to other viber users for free. What that means, simply install Viber on your blackberry mobile and make call to a friend who is using Viber on his iPad. Its a multi platform free calling application : Free iPad to mobile calls, Free PC to mobile calls, Free android to iPhone calls, Viber Blackberry to Viber Android calls : the are possibilities are endless.

According to Viber team, the Viber blackberry application is in the hands of Blackberry officials (Research in Motion : RIM) people. Once the blackberry approves the application, the viber for blackberry app will be available for all blackberry users, yup all viber for blackberry curve, bold, torch, bold 9780, 8250 ... basically all blackberry phones! I would suggest people that as you have waited for so much time, just wait for just few more days, Viber for Blackberry will be launched very soon.

The good thing about blackberry phones is : internet and blackberry are always together. There is no use of having blackberry mobiles without internet connection. So viber for blackberry will be always working. That is you can effectively making blackberry to blackberry calling free (viber to viber calls).

Viber for Blackberry

Viber for Blackberry Release Date 


Update : Well Viber blackberry app is launched now. The app is released just today (8th May) and people have already posted so many reviews. The app is proving to be a great success.

Hi Barry,

We are in the last days of beta testing.
We hope to close this stage by the end of this month, and then send
Viber for BlackBerry [beta] to the AppWorld for your review as well.

Stay tuned for future updates.

We hoped that the beta testing phase would be completed by the end of March, but some obstacles were hit and we are doing our best to finish the development of the app accordingly.

We ask for a tiny bit more patience - we hope that the testing will be finished within a week or two, then we will submit the app for RIM's review, and then - the release to AppWorld :)

April 2, 2012 at 1:17 AM

But really ... I was thinking about switch to Android. Come on, Viber and RIM!!!!! There are many people waiting desperately for Viber for BlackBerry.

Have you got a definate date for this app yet ?

April 7, 2012 at 2:08 AM

Not yet.

We are in the last days of beta testing, and presently compiling reviews from our beta testers. We hope to complete this stage within the next couple of weeks, and then finally submit Viber for BlackBerry [beta] to RIM (Blackberry's developers) for their review and approval. When they are done, the app will be available on AppWorld :)

We will be announcing its publication, system req. and more, at that time.

In other word, Viber for BB won't see the light of day any time soon. You know, it's ok to tell it like it is... After all, we've been waiting since June 2011, so why not keep us waiting 2 more months, to officially make it 1 year since you're developping an app that's "coming soon"!

Anonymous
April 8, 2012 at 3:55 AM

You've been copying/pasting that sorry excuse everywhere. You've been claiming Viber for Blackberry will be released "soon" since June 2011, then recently in a matter of days, which turned into a matter of weeks. Clearly you're in the same situation as us... you have no idea what's going on. You know, it's ok to say nothing, or that you don't know, instead of giving users false hope. And from experience, you can test an app all you want, there will still be bugs... the imperfection of the app for iPhone and Android is living proof for that, and neither will it be perfect for Blackberry. So just release the app already!!!

April 8, 2012 at 2:08 PM

As we explained, the beta phase is about to be over very soon, and then we will deliver the app for RIM's final review. Once that's over, Viber should be officially released to AppWorld.

In the technological world, it is common that unexpected obstacles are hit, but we prefer delaying the release a bit more than planned rather than releasing a half-baked product. We apologize for the delay, and rest assured that it is also in our huge interest to release it ASAP.

I was contemplating switching to iphone a few days ago, but since i foudn out viber will be available on blackberry i will stay with RIM. Viber for BB is long over due, should have been available years ago!

I hope this is true and we will in fact be able to use viber on our blackberry's.

So, you admit you are still working on the beta phase and when finished the app will be delivered to RIM for their final review. Can you possibly say how long RIM are likely to take with their testing?

April 26, 2012 at 7:37 PM

Hi just a Question. Like we whatsapp without any internet plan on our fone.. will it be possible to do the same with viber? Coz it's too expensive here and i would rather use my wifi at home..

And.. Sorry i know it's a bit of a nag when people ask the same Question, but when you say ready would you mean it's going to be launched in the app world in the next 2 weeks or ready to be sent to the bb developers? :/

Anonymous
April 27, 2012 at 4:37 AM

Yes you've said that 2 weeks ago and 2 weeks before that and 2 weeks before that and 2 weeks before that. I assume you know where I'm going with this. Just give us a date please

April 27, 2012 at 10:22 PM

Whilst I think that Viber will be great for Blackberry users why would RIM allow the use of Viber to be free. They do not allow Skype calling between BlackBerry users to be free. Or was this the doing of Skype themselves. I use Viber on my HTC and it works really well. Thanks.

April 28, 2012 at 12:50 PM

We are not sure we understood your question entirely... If you meant to ask whether or not Viber will use BIS network - then yes, Viber will "prefer" using BIS data than regular 3G data.

About the release dates - we are working around the clock to upload the finished product to AppWorld as soon as we can. We hope it is ready very soon now.

April 28, 2012 at 12:51 PM

We apologize for the delay.

If you look closely, we never guaranteed it for certain - when we mentioned "2 weeks" we explicitly said that we hope it would be ready by then. Trust us - we are working around the clock to bring it to our fans as soon as we can. It is also in our great interest to release it, is it not? ;)

DonovanSA
April 29, 2012 at 3:45 AM

I am using Viber on my HTC and it works really well. Why would RIM all Blackberry users to use Viber to make free phone calls when they are unable to use Skype free on their Blackberries? Is this RIM's restriction or Skype?

It is clear these guys are not under pressure. In a normal business they would not exist anymore as they even can not estimate their "production".
To be honest and respect your clients means good business, so viber guys should change their "soon" approach to a more profesional one, least where they can estimate the year of the issue.

Ufff :)

This " coming soon " thing they keep on mentioning is obsolete in the world of technology where things change each second. so wake up BB it is already too late for you.

This first version (beta) has been out there a long time ago. I had it installed about 1.5 years ago. The new RIM OS is currently being developed and might bring some new hope. It's just remarkable that even old apps are like skype are not there. I guess RIM will have to live with people switching to android or i phones, if they don't solve this issue quickly.

Hi Viber,

I am an avid fan of the Viber application. I bought Blackberry because I thought Viber runs on it. Unlucky, Viber in Blackberry only supports texting and some other features but not calls.

I'm currently jumping from one site to another reading all the forums about Viber in Blackberry. I have hope. I know that very soon the Viber for Blackberry full version will be released.

More Power to Viber.

The authorities in the UAE have decided to block Viber in the whole country, and that is why you are experiencing this issue. Unfortunately there is not much we can do to help :(
You may try contacting the authorities and ask for the reason for this block.
