How does it work?

Open your Viber app, choose Settings and tap “Viber Local Number”.

Decide the country and even the local area code you want your number to be based in.

Confirm the chosen phone number is the right one for you, and then pick a subscription for your number. Your payment will automatically renew at the end of that period.

Anyone who calls this number can reach you as they would with any other local number, and you will receive the call (and even regular text messages) through your Viber app. All you need to do is make sure you have an active internet connection (network or WiFi).

Why should you get Viber local number?

Think of the following scenario: You have moved abroad for work, but you visit back home often and need to keep certain things going there. Viber Local Number is ideal. If you don’t want to let people know you are abroad, give them your Viber Local Number and they will call you the same way as if you were still there.

The responsibility for keeping in touch with loved ones back home is no longer only yours. Now other people can call you without even thinking about the high price of long-distance calls, and you can chat with them wherever you are.

A Viber Local Number subscription gives excellent value, with prices starting at just $1.99 per month for the first 10,000 users. Once you have paid for your monthly subscription, there are no other call charges for you. All you need to do is make sure you have an active internet connection (network or WiFi), and you will receive calls for free.

If you need an additional number because you have bases in different countries, you can buy a local number subscription in each country so that people can call you on local numbers wherever they are. Receive calls or text messages to all of these numbers in your Viber app.
