    hi.. do you know where i can find older version of viber for iOS. i am having trouble installing viber 2.2.2 for iOS version 4.2.1 ???

    Please note that Viber does not officially support iOS4.2 and below at this stage, and this is probably the reason for the problems you’re experiencing. We are planning to roll back Viber in AppStore only for iOS4.2 users,so that they can use an older version of Viber, that’s compatible with their phone.
