  • Great update
  • words are spreading like fire about wp platform everyone is trying to capitalize on the growth.
  • I downloaded nimbuzz to use it as a gmail client. It sucked big time. I even mailed them my problems. The chat keeps jumping. Special characters not recognized. File cannot be sent - the list goes on. Very poorly built app, lacks quality.
  • Try JiTalk or IM+
  • I use MobileVoip for international calls, awesome app. They also have huge list of countries for free call. their website go ahead and check it out
  • How can i go to chat rooms in Nimbuzz as in Android.....???
    Help Me out.
  • okay, so it seems like a great windows phone alternative to google voice on android for international calls. the only thing is, i tried to see the rates on their website and it did not populate a list. mad annoying. so how can i really compare the two? all that being said, i can make international "calls" using kakao talk on wp to other kakao users and use google voice at home. theres always skype.
  • Does it support 3rd party SIP providers?
  • OMG, since 2011 I used to use NimbuzzOut on my Nokia N8 to make calls, and was missing this feature on Windows Phone. 2 weeks ago I answered alone one of their tweets asking them to make this feature available for WP. And now it is here!!! :D I'm awesome! hahahaha
