    Find and tap the Viber tile to open the 'Viber' application
    .
    The Viber tile has a purple background with the Viber logo in white in the middle. The Viber logo is a speech bubble with a telephone in it. If Viber is not pinned to the home screen, swipe from right to left to view the 'App menu'. Find 'Viber' in the App menu and tap it. Once the app has loaded, we will need to find the settings menu.

    Tap the menu icon in the bottom right corner of the screen to open the options menu

    Look for the section labeled, "Viber In-calls", where we will find the switch that turns the option to receive incoming calls 'On' or 'Off'
    .
    It is the second option in the "messages and calls" settings. In this example, there is a glitch in the app where the label reads "Off", but the switch is set to the right, or 'On'. If the switch icon is set to the right and colored purple, the setting is on regardless of what the label says. The default setting to receiving incoming calls is for the option to be enabled.

    .
    Viber allows us to call non-Viber phone numbers or normal telephones. However, this may cost money, especially if the call is international. Turn this option off to ensure no incoming calls are accepted.
