Back in the day, if you wanted to send text messages, the cost would be too great. Plus, forget about text messaging a friend of yours overseas, as the cost per message would be even more expensive than making a minute phone call. If you wanted to send a message, your option would only be to e-mail that person. These days however, you can simply send a message using Viber and you won’t have to pay a single cent for it. In fact, you can spend an entire day messaging back and forth with all your contacts in Viber and you still won’t be charged for it at all. If your Nokia phone is running on Symbian OS, you can also take part in this wonderful technology, as Viber is now available for it making the operating system a part of the numerous supported phones by this app.
Downloading Viber for the Symbian is free and you can do that by downloading it from the OVI store website. If you are not familiar with OVI, it is the web page for Nokia users where you can download applications as well as get support for anything related to products of the brand. There are two ways you can download Viber from the website: either you download it to your PC first before transferring the app to your phone or you can directly download Viber to your device. Regardless of method, the process is quite easy.
Upon downloading and launching the app, you may find yourself wondering as to what you can actually do with Viber and which features make it a unique application. For starters, you do not need to import your contacts from your phone book at all. At the same time, you don’t have to search for any of them as well. With Viber, you won’t have to worry about any of that at all. The app integrates with your phone and will automatically identify any of your contacts that also have Viber! This means that the first time you use the app you can already start sending messages to anyone on your contacts list using Viber for their phone.
Besides sending text and picture messages, you can also send messages in groups. With as many as 15 friends at one time, you can send message blasts to many of your contacts and even provide location sharing for them as well. Best of all, Viber does not require you to register for the service nor will it ask any password from you. It’s simple and for free!
