The Buzz

The “Buzz” is an alert sent to let Nimbuzz user know someone is trying to get in touch with him, when he is offline/idle. This feature can be accessed directly from the contact list or from the Communicator widget. It has been asked that buzz users disable voicemail to avoid Numbuzz's operators incurring charges, thus keeping buzz free. Sending a buzz can automatically start Nimbuzz mobile to initiate a conversation (Symbian only).


  • Access to mobile phone phonebook contacts without leaving Nimbuzz screen
