recently got blocked in UAE so if you are travelling to a city in the United Arab Emirates such as Dubai or Abu Dhabi be aware that viber will not work on your iPhone/android phone as you may hope it would. To solve this inconvenience you may decide to use a VPN account from VPN-accounts.com
When the VPN is connected we are told that Viber still does not work. It appears that Viber, once connected ignores the active vpn connection being made. So, the quick fix at this time is to do the following:
On the Android and iPhone:
- Enable airplane mode ( to ensure 3g/4g/gsm etc are all disabled )
- Enable wifi and connect to wifi: This way you know only wifi is connected on the phone and nothing else.
- Connect to VPN
- Connect on Viber : Viber will be forced to use the VPN connection.
We are also told that Viber call quality from UAE is much better using the above method than what it used to be. That is probably related to the fact that the signal used to go via the 3G/4G networks and their may have been some throttling or interference.
