How to change phone number in Viber without losing correspondence and contacts
1. Launch the Viber app on your iPhone or Android.
2. Click the “Still” and follow the path “Settings » → “Account” → “Change phone number ».
3. At this stage, the user will be offered two options:
“New Phone Number » (binding to a new number without reinstalling Viber) and “New phone number and new device » (in this case, you must first create a backup copy of your contacts and correspondence, and then bind to another number).
Keep in mind that restoring an account backup is only possible within the limits of one platform. That is, correspondence stored on Android can only be restored on another Android device. The situation is similar on the iPhone.
4. Select the option you want and follow the on-screen instructions.
Attention! Make sure that the new phone number you specified can receive calls or SMS.
After changing the number, all users from your address book will receive a notification.
