Networks now supporting 3G VOIP for iPhone!!

October 7th, 2009


AT&T (in the USA) on Tuesday said it has made the necessary changes to enable voice over IP iPhone apps to run on its wireless network. Before Tuesday, VoIP apps would only work over a Wi-Fi network. In other words, if you wanted to use Nimbuzz to call a friend, you had to be connected to a regular Internet wireless network. Once you were out of range of that network, the call would end.

What does this mean for South African Nimbuzz users?


Mobile phones and security of personal data.

September 30th, 2009


I am writing this post because of an incident last weekend. After a long week of work I went for dinner with a few friends and afterwards we ended up in a local hang-out in Cape Town having a few well deserved drinks. It was busy and somehow somebody managed to grab my iPhone and wallet out of my back pocket. I won’t go into the facts that I should be more careful, the costs of replacing everything and the time spent doing so because my blood-pressure will just rise too high.

I had my iPhone for just under a year and it truly had become my favourite companion with email, music, internet, facebook and Nimbuzz all in my one little toy. After it was gone I realised how much information is actually on there. One good thing was that there is always a backup of the information on my MAC and my mobileMe account.

Wi-Fi in the Sky! Call, chat and message with Nimbuzz in the clouds!

May 20th, 2009


Wi-Fi in the Sky is the next big thing! (or so they say)

Each day, our lives become more and more mobile, and we need to always be available to our family, friends or business contacts.

The latest buzz in the blogosphere is the project of introducing a Wi-Fi connection, in the airplanes. This will result in complete and “always on” presence online for the ones that need it (like me ).

For U.S. we already have dates when Wi-Fi will be available for most of the travelers.

“AirTran Airways will equip all of its 136 planes with Wi-Fi by the end of July 2009.”
“Delta Air Lines, which operates more than 1,000 planes, and American Airlines, with more than 600 jets, are rolling the service out over the next year (2010).” [LAtimes]


Bridging the 3G VoIP gap on the iPhone: instant messaging and VoIP deluxe

April 22nd, 2009


We have just released our new iPhone version of Nimbuzz to bridge the 3G VoIP gap, and also turn the iPod Touch into an iPhone.

With free Wi-Fi calls to instant messaging buddies already available, we have added a full dial-pad, and the ability to make VoIP calls to landlines and mobile phones at significantly reduced rates with Skype Out, and via our 10 VoIP partners including Gizmo5, Vyke, sipgate and A1.

Turn your iPod Touch into an iPhone! Make calls over Wi-Fi via SkypeOut or via your VoIP provider. You can even see the available Skype Out credit you have directly on the dial pad! Just use the Apple headset with a microphone.

If Wi-Fi is unavailable you can make VoIP calls to Nimbuzz buddies using Nimbuzz Dial-Up VoIP in over 50 countries.

Dial-Up VoIP? What this means is that Nimbuzz dials a local access number that connects to anywhere in the world via Nimbuzz VoIP servers. So you can call your Nimbuzz buddies anywhere for the same cost of a domestic call :)

P.S.: We are experimenting with Twitter, and you can post to Twitter via the Personal Message feature! Try it. Your comments are always welcome, so please feel free to give feedback.
