Viber-to-Viber calls and messages are totally free.
Viber uses an Internet connection (3G, 4G or Wi-Fi) to make calls and send messages. Viber uses data, so there may be charges if you are abroad and using roaming, or if you have run out of data on your plan. Use Wi-Fi as much as possible to avoid these charges.
Calling a number that isn't on Viber is not free. Add Viber Out credit to your account to call these numbers at a low cost.
An SMS is the traditional text message that comes as a default on most phones. These text messages are usually part of your regular phone package, or may have a small cost attached to them. Text messages are generally only just words, with very few options to do anything more with them.
A Viber message is sent from an app on your phone over the internet to someone else with the same app. Viber-to-Viber messages are free as long as you have free data or you are connected to the internet with Wi-Fi. Your network provider may charge you if you do not have any free data.

VoIP, or voice over internet protocol is how we can provide you with voice and video calls over the internet rather than through a phone line. All calls made using Viber are through VoIP whether they are a free Viber-to-Viber call, or a low-cost Viber Out call.
