How to change your phone number in Viber without losing your correspondence and contacts
1… Launch the Viber app on iPhone or Android.
2… Click the “Yet” and follow the path “Settings” → “Account” → “Change phone number “…
3… At this stage, the user will be presented with 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 contacts and correspondence, and then link to another number).
Keep in mind that it is only possible to restore a backup copy of an account within one platform. That is, the correspondence saved 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 instructions on the screen.
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 corresponding notification.
