Which phones are supported by Nimbuzz on the mobile?

To use Nimbuzz, you need an Internet-enabled mobile with Internet access from your operator or via Wifi. We currently support more than 22 brands and over 500 models and are constantly adding support for new models. To check if we support your phone please click here.

If your phone isn’t listed, send us an e-mail to with containing the brand and model of your mobile phone. We will notify you as soon as we support your model.

How do I enable my phone for internet usage and Nimbuzz?

Most operators sell their mobile phones - direct and via retail - pre-configured for the services you contracted. However, in some cases default configurations do not allow 3rd party applications such as Nimbuzz to connect to the internet. Also, when you subscribe to a mobile data plan after you've bought the phone, you may need to do some settings yourself. What are the settings for my data plan?

I receive the error message: “Testing socket connection... Failed” or “Testing HTTP connection... Failed”. What to do next?

After you installed Nimbuzz on your mobile phone you have to test the connection.

If you receive this error message: “Testing socket connection...Failed, Testing HTTP connection...Failed” please go and check your data plan settings here and apply changes if needed. Please contact should you still not be able to pass the connection test.

How much does Nimbuzz cost?

All Nimbuzz products are free to download and use. Nimbuzz will never charge or bill for anything. Nimbuzz uses a data connection, and operator data costs will apply. We recommend that you use an unlimited (flat rate) data plan, which you can get from your operator.

Operator charges might apply using the Call feature. Nimbuzz offers two calling options.

Local Dial-In Call:

This option makes a call to a local fixed line number in your country, and then connects you. Your operator will only charge you for a local fixed line call (or deduct minutes as part of your monthly package). Nimbuzz won’t charge for anything. To check if Local Dial-In calling is available in your country, please click here.

Internet Call:

This option is completely free because it routes the call over the Internet. You need a 3G/UMTS or Wifi network to use this option.

Which Call Type is available for the Nimbuzz version on my mobile phone?

Java: Local Dial-In calling only. Do I have a Java mobile phone?

S60: Internet and local Dial-In calling. Do I have a S60 mobile phone?

Windows Mobile: Internet calling only. Do I have a Windows Mobile phone?

How can I use SIP calling?

We offer SIP calling in our S60 versions with third party SIP accounts.

SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is a protocol used to establish, modify and terminate VOIP telephone calls. Using SIP, you can make cheap calls to a landline and regular mobile phones. With Nimbuzz SIP support, you can make Internet calls via the Nimbuzz Phonebook feature by adding any SIP provider you already use. Costs depend on your SIP provider rates.

SIP calling is mostly used to make cheap international calls. A list of SIP providers can be found here.

You can go to Options > Settings > SIP Accounts to register an account.
After that you can place VoIP calls via the Phonebook.
