Questions and Answers

I followed the directions but my cousin from Ireland who is using Viber and myself cannot add our numbers of each other to Viber?

How can I add the number, I have tried using the overseas code etc.

The easiest method is asking him to call you from his mobile phone (not from Viber), for example. Reject the call and carefully write down the number. The number must start with "+353" or "+44" with the plus sign included.

Make sure that you give your cousin the correct number for adding. It happens that Viber can be associated with one mobile phone number that may no longer belong to you. Launch Viber, tap on "Contacts" and scroll up to see your number under "My Number". Ask your mate to do the same. These are exactly the numbers, including the plus sign, that you need to type.

    Make sure that you include the + sign and the country code. For example, +1 for the USA. No extra "0" or "8" are needed. Without that, it will not work. Then, enter a mobile phone number of a person whom you need to add. He or she has to have Viber installed.

How can I find and add a new contact with limited information?

I want to add a Viber contact but I only know her first name, is there a "universal search" as in VK? I have tried: I have tried to find a search function in Viber, and it is not readily obvious

There is no search function on Viber for individuals. As long as you have the phone number of the person or you scan his or her QR code from his or her phone, you can add him or her. You can only search for public groups by tapping on the "Public" icon at the bottom in the main menu and tapping on the magnifying glass at the top.
