To Make FREE Calls from Your iPhone or Android locally and internationally- Easily !! For Working On The Move.

Make Free Calls on Your Mobile to Other Vibers

I speak of the the Viber app for use on iPhones and Android mobiles.

  We all want to save cash on charges for international and local calls  in the current economic climate and this is a  useful assistant for us all to this end . I almost feel silly writing this post because I did not know about it until recently when a friend asked me to sign up- Thanks Kieran – I may be in the minority and lots of you are no doubt already happily using it- good on you but this is for the newbies like me !!


The Viber app allows iPhone (And Android users) to make FREE phone calls and texts to each other genuinely for free, either with a 3G connection or Wi-Fi connection with no hassle or complexity at all.

Once two iPhone users have the Viber app installed on their phones and their numbers are present in each others contact lists, then they will get unlimited free calls and texts, either over 3G or Wi-Fi to each other. It is as simple as that Folks !!! Really.

Viber works very like Skype, but unlike Skype, where you have to sign up and get a unique skype name , add users etc, the hassle of adding your contacts skype names etc — with Viber you do not need to sign up to use it. Once installed you only have to call your friends mobile phone number from your contacts phone list- which is the same as before you installed Viber (after installation Viber determines who on you phones existing list is part of Viber and a viber icon appears alongside their name).Convenient in a word.


Part 1.     Installation- Its Free !!

On the Itunes store – or Android market- Get the Free app

Then you simply install the app – run it – and then just register your phone number once, and you receive immediately an SMS/text message with a code. You simply Enter this code into Viber and that’s it … You are good to Go *****


Part 2  – Here is how it works

Instead of using your iPhone’s phone app, you use Viber App instead.

When you make a call out of Viber, it checks to see if that phone number is registered with another Viber user. Viber automatically detects from your contact list on your phone whether persons on your list are using the viber app or not (no matter the model of your iPhone) If it is, Viber handles the call over VOIP. If it’s not, Viber automatically routes the call through your iPhone’s phone app as normal ( before you installed the app).

The app gets you free calls to other Viber users and other calls to non viber people work just the same as always  ( as your phone was before installation of viber).


  • Viber is Very simple to use- it’s basically a purple version of your iPhone’s phone app
  • No editing or having to add anything to your phones contact list.
  • It Notifies you of which of your contacts are on Viber
  • Make free international phone calls
  • Call quality is very good every time we have used it
  • You will be able to make calls over Wi-Fi when your cellular reception is particularly poor

The only downside we see

  • No conference calling or video calls or screen share- which you get with Skype – but the portability and simplicity more than compensate. In any event you can use both services – if need  be – after all most of us use more than one browser !!

So FOLKS get ready to make free calls or texts to other Viber users, no matter wherever he or she lives anywhere in the world as long as you have Wi-Fi or 3G access. It really is a powerful tool for all of us working on the go !!

TIP– When next speaking to a friend or regular customer or family TELL them to install the app- emails are forgotten or ignored- you will thereafter see from your Viber contact list if they have signed up – if so- happy days for you both!!

      Hi Rosemary,
      This is information that can cut out telco bill to almost nothing.
      While some of the apps you get to use are not available here in australia …it would be interesting to see if we have access to it here.
      Thanks for sharing.

      • Rosemary O'Shaughnessy

        Bryan, you are very welcome . I also find there are apps that are not available to me as well living here in Ireland. It can be very frustrating when I see they are available in the UK. You are very welcome back to working on the go. Take care Rosemary.

      Hi Rosemary,

      OMG I had no idea that this app existed and I’ve had an iPhone for years!

      Thank for for the great tip, I have a ridiculous of free data every month with my contract so my partner and I will give it a go!

      Big Smiles!

      Emma 🙂

      • Rosemary O'Shaughnessy


        You are very welcome , I have been using it on calsl between England and Ireland today and the reception was excellent. It is great to be able to save some money in these uncertain times. All the best Rosemary

    • Hi Rosemary, I too had no idea this app existed, so great to know. Thanks. Sounds like a real contender for skype. Just have to get other half signed up now 🙂

    • Rick Lelchuk


      I will be sure to get back here when I get a smart phone. Been resisting it since I spend sooooo much time on the computer the way it is I dread the idea of never being off line. But, I know it’s coming and this app will certainly come in handy.

      • Rosemary O'Shaughnessy

        Hi Rick,

        I can understand what you are thinking about smart phones, but I find my iPhone helps me save time. Earlier today I was early for a meeting and while waiting I used my iPhone to watch a video about the Facebook updates.

        I use the viber app often as it is a great way to keep in touch with clients when I am out an about. Take care and thanks for your time. Rosemary

    • I use Viber as well to call my friend from the U.S. I definitely love this app, aside from it’s totally free, it is very handy to use. There are still lots of free applications I download in my iPhone like Talkatone and so far all of them are GREAT!

      • Rosemary O'Shaughnessy

        Hi Tony, many thanks for your tip for the iPhone of Talktone I will check it out as I use an iPhone as well. Did you notice Hans also suggested Whatsapp which is available for our pals who use Blackberrys and Androids. You are very welcome to share any more suggestions for working on the go and saving money which I am sure other readers will appreciate. All the best Rosemary

    • Lynn Jones

      Hi Rosemary, You think you are in the minority… too, even more because I don’t even own an iphone or Android. However, I do see the value if I did and I will be sure and share with anybody I know who does.
      Thanks a bunch!

      • Rosemary O'Shaughnessy


        Many thanks for your comment and I am sure your friends will be as delighted with this tip. I have to admit I find my iPhone great especially for apps to keep me organised when I am working on the go. All the best Rosemary

    • Hans Schoff

      Hey Rosemary, thanks for sharing about that app. Another great for free text messages between iphones is WhatsApp. I’ve used that to text family in England before. Pretty cool. I will look more into the app you recommend. Sounds great, thanks!

      • Rosemary O'Shaughnessy

        Hans, many thanks for your tips and I have just checked the app. I am going to try it on my iPhone but what it great about it is it includes blackberry users. I am well aware there are readers of this blog who use Blackberrys and Androids. It is great to get tips so I can give more value to my readers as we are all aware of wanting value in these uncertain times. All the best Rosemary

    • Joyce Edwards

      Love free but how can it be???? Not making any international calls or going over my limits it seems like something that I wouldn’t use,however, I do like new things so I will try it out on my Android!

      • Rosemary O'Shaughnessy

        Hi Joyce, delighted you are going to give it a try. I use it on my iPhone and I have many pals who use it on both Android and iPhone. I would love to hear how you find it after you use it for a while. All the best Joyce.
