  • for example, its a pay as you go SIM or, sim from different country and now i live in a diff country and forgot to deactivate the older number -- all contacts have your previous number... many examples.. – hB0 Feb 4 '15 at 13:37
  • I believe there is no way around it. You can ask their support to make an exception for your situation. I don't think you got an other choice. – miva2 Oct 6 '15 at 9:13

As mentioned on the Viber Support Docs

You will receive an SMS message with your Viber access code

You will require to receive an SMS(or use the automatic callback feature) to be able to activate.You will have to necessarily use either of the above options to activate Viber on your phone.
