Use Viber Out abroad
Install and activate Viber before you set off on your trip. To activate Viber you must be able to receive the access code by call or SMS. Avoid roaming charges by doing this before you leave home.

Once activated, you can use Viber wherever you are in the world. Remember it will only be free if you are on Wi-Fi. Reduce costs by signing up for roaming or an international data plan.

Viber-to-Viber calls will be free as long as you are on Wi-Fi. If you are using your own data you may be charged unless you have an international data plan.
If you activated Viber before you left to your home phone number, your friends and family will always be able to get hold of you at the number they know, even if you switch to a local phone number. This is because Viber is connected to the phone number you provided on set up, not the phone number of your phone.
If you lose a local SIM with a data plan, anything you do on Viber will be covered by that data plan.
If you need to install and activate Viber whilst abroad, make sure you have roaming activated so that you can receive your access code via call or SMS.
If you want to change your Viber phone number, follow this process.
