Why Can't I Use My Number to Activate Viber?


  • Republic Wireless Numbers
  • Viber


Viber does not support activating an account using a VoIP number. Republic Wireless numbers are considered VoIP (Voice Over Internet) numbers and not wireless numbers due to our hybrid-based design. 

Additional Notes

VoIP numbers that are already registered and active on Viber will not be affected, but new VoIP numbers will not be able to activate Viber. This includes users with VoIP numbers that have changed mobile devices. Running Viber on the new device requires a new activation, which is not allowed for VoIP numbers anymore. Viber may be able to white-list Republic Wireless numbers - please open a ticket with Viber for more information.
