How to transfer Viber to new phone
Viber is one of the most popular applications for performing both voice and video calls, sending messages, sharing files and much more. You can use the program on the mobile phones with different operating systems, tablets, laptops and PCs. However, the application is linked to your mobile phone, so you can use one account on one single smartphone only (the number of additional devices, such as laptops and computers is still unlimited). Once your try to activate your app’s account on another mobile, all program’s data from your first smartphone will be deleted automatically. So, is it possible to transfer Viber to new phone?
