  2. Is nimbuzz required 3G system in India?

    Inder Jeet October 6th, 2009
  3. @Inderjeet, Nimbuzz does not require 3G System as it can work from GPRS. However, 3G can add high speed mobility.

    Is it necessary to subscribe to vodafone mobile connect?

  6. @Aditya,

    it is not necessary but Nimbuzz is fully functional on Vodafone over the Vodafone Mobile Connect. Both the options can be subscribed simultaneously but can used individually.

    Try using Vodafone Mobile Connect and let us know your feedback

    I am in Mumbai and unable to use nimbuzz over the vodafone live network. It works fine over my wi-fi network at home. Just wanted to find out whether it really works over Vodafone Mobile Connect so that if it does, I can go ahead, have that activated and switch over. Please let me know.

  14. Aslamo Alaikum Shahnawaz,
    I have only one complain to Nimbuzz. In Gujarat, I cant connect in Nimbuzz through Vodafone Live settings. I can connect through Vodafone Live in eBuddy, sh Messnger, Nokia’s application “chat” and FonWar(It has chat rooms also like Nimbuzz). Then why I cant connect in Nimbuzz?? Vodafone Mobile Connect is very costly. I can do everything through Vodafone Live except Nimbuzzing :( Shahnawaz PLEASE do something to solve this problem.

  18. I’m using Nimbuzz in my Nokia N95 using Vodafone Mobile Connect Karnataka and Wifi. However, it doesn’t work with Vodafone Live. I wonder why? and many other apps as well doesn’t work with VL. It is probably just meant for browsing from Mobile Browser.

    Vodafone want to make few quick bucks with Vodafone Mobile Connect Monthly Rental 199 Rs and Download cost of 5 Paisa for 10 KB.

    Few apps do work with Vodafone Live and few are not..may be due to the type of connection the application uses.

    No Crying. Change the Service Provider who is providing cheaper and better service.

    Vodafone User May 31st, 2010
  19. For better GPRS, switch to DOCOMO or BSNL. All your applications will work. And you won’t have to pay a single buck as rental.
