Nimbuzz Launches On T-Mobile TAP Phone


Your favorite mobile social messaging app comes already pre – installed on the T-Mobile TAP, which is available now! YAY!

Yes that’s right folks! If you are one the lucky people who recently bought the new TAP phone from T-Mobile, you probably already noticed that the IM option is actually Nimbuzz :).

So from now on get ready to chat and text message with your friends from all popular instant messaging and social networks, and  SAVE SAVE SAVE!!!

Save Money:  Nimbuzz allows you to connect with ALL your friends from ALL your favorite social networks anytime – any day, and it’s completely free. Text message, share photos, files and stay connected with your online community 24 hours a day.

Save Time: No need to spend all that time switching from Facebook to MSN, or from AIM to GTalk in order to keep up with all your conversations. You will find out how much time you will save if you sync all your friends in one interactive list, and the best, without leaving the app.

Save Yourself a Headache: We understand that you probably have an unbelievable amount of online friends, so we give you the option to organize them all. Alphabetically, by account, online and/or offline friends? we let you decide.

We recommend an unlimited data plan for optimal use, especially if you are a very active internet user. T-Mobile’s affordable  plans can be found here. We have done a previous post about about their data plans.

To use Nimbuzz follow these 3 easy steps

  1. Go to the main menu of your phone
  2. Click on the messaging option
  3. Choose the IM tab

That’s it! Then you will have the option to create an account or log in if you already have one.

  6. my nimbuzz is not working why? whenever I go to it it says it is not applicable at this time please check your internet connection. AND i do have unlimited texting.

    ANNA December 19th, 2009
  7. @Anna

    Do you have a data plan with T-Mobile? Nimbuzz should be able to connect tot he internet on your mobile. Please check with them to make sure everything is in order.

    Once you have a connection all should be fine.

    Tobias December 21st, 2009
  8. Is there any way to use Nimbuzz without a data plan on the tap? Because like Anna, I have texting but my mom won’t buy the data plan.

    Candice December 27th, 2009
  9. @Candice

    You can use it over Wifi but the phone needs to support Wifi in this case. Nimbuzz will only work if it has a connection to the internet. T-Mobile offers cheap unlimited internet plans.

    Dan January 19th, 2010

    pamela January 23rd, 2010
  13. i have the T-mobile Tap and it has updated to the newest version of Nimbuzz this began about two weeks ago ive tried to create new profiles but i still get no luck unfortunately

    Tyller January 25th, 2010
  14. @Pamela, a Data Plan allows you to surf the web, send and receive emails, instant message, etc. You have to have internet access in order to use the application, this is why Nimbuzz is telling you that its unable to connect. You can find out more about data plans on the T-Mobile website. I hope this helps.

    Dan January 25th, 2010

    sorry to hear that you are having difficulties with Nimbuzz on your TAP phone. Since is working on your PC, it should work fine on your mobile device as well. Just make sure you are not copying and pasting, and also make sure to erase all the spaces. If the problem persists please email support at: support [at] nimbuzz [dot] com

    Dan February 26th, 2010

    Hasmik April 28th, 2010
  37. How do you download Nimbuzz is there another name for tmobile tap.??

    Ashley May 4th, 2010
  38. @Ashley You can find Nimbuzz on your TAP phone by going to messaging > IM > If you don’t have a Nimbuzz account, you have create one, but if you already do then you can just use your old credentials. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks!

    Dan May 6th, 2010
  39. @Hasmik Thank for your question. Unfortunately, VoIP or the voice option it is not available for the TAP phone at this point, that is why you cannot make calls using your data plan. On the other hand, with our PC version you can call using NimbuzzOut. Rates start at $0.02 a minute, andif you call Nimbuzz to Nimbuzz is free. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Dan May 6th, 2010

    Ashley May 6th, 2010
  42. @Ashley Im getting more information about your problem, I will get back to you shortly. Stay tuned!

    Dan May 10th, 2010
  43. @Ashley I contacted T- Mobile and they recommend that you contact them, because in order to trobleshoot the device which means they might be able to embed the IM feature for you! Make sure to have the phone with you when you call them.
    Let me know if you have more questions after you talk to them. Hope this helps!

    Dan May 10th, 2010

  48. Tmobile Tap

    Ashley May 24th, 2010
  49. Hey so i don’t have the IM feature also in my messaging folder. my tmobile tap is pretty much brand new (bought in mid april)

    also I have downloaded nimbuzz on my phone, and recently updated. It has trouble getting past the network portion (do i need to input an ip address to my phone to have it connect, or should it automatically connect to the internet with my data plan…?)

    it also says: “the data could not be saved to the settings storage due to insufficient storage memory”

    what should i do.

    my model is u7519mnb

    winston May 25th, 2010
  50. @Ashley @Winston Hey guys, Im sorry you haven’t been able to find Nimbuzz on your TAP phone. Last week I spoke with a representative over at T-Mobile about this, and she explained to me that some TAP phones (even if they are new) are running a different a software version, that is why in some of them, the IM option is not available. The good news is that if you contact T-Mobile, they might be able to help installing Nimbuzz on your phone by rebooting your device. They only need you to have your TAP phone available whenever you contact them. You can contact them on the phone or by chat on their page. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have more question and I will be happy to help you.

    Dan May 25th, 2010
  51. I use T-mobile Tap too. and there is nimbuzz in my phone but cant use skype cause when i use my skype by mobile i can not see my contacts list all it shows only some of them i cant call them whats the matter? As i see t-mobile Tap doesnt have that option to call someone but what can i do to see all my contacts?

    :) May 26th, 2010
  52. @:) Unfortunately, we don’t have the voice feature for the T-Mobile TAP phone available yet. That is why you are not able to make calls using Nimbuzz on this particular phone. Thanks for your feedback and let me know if you have any more questions.

    Dan May 27th, 2010
  53. I had to replace my Tap about a week ago and found that my new one came w/o the Nimbuzz app. Instead they had something that was called social networks which kinda takes the place of Nimbuzz. But it only connects to Myspace, Twitter and Facebook. I downloaded Nimbuzz to my phone and it works great, although i had to find the right model to use, since t mobile tap was not listed. I have yet to have any issues with the service and have not even tried to use Skype. But in the possibility that i might want to, will T-mobile be allowing that feature to work sometime soon? or is it a no go

    Tiffani May 27th, 2010
  54. Tiffani what model phone did you use since tmobile tap wasnt listed?

    Ashley May 27th, 2010
  55. @Tiffani thanks for sharing your experience with us. Can you please let @Ashley know which mode you used, so maybe other people who have the Tap but can’t find Nimbuzz can follow your steps. Regarding your question. On the Tap phone you can chat with your friends from Skype, but cannot make calls over the internet yet. It is more of a technical limitation inside the phone than a T -Mobile problem. Hopefully, that’s something that we’ll be able to figure out soon, and we’ll make sure to let you all know.

    Dan May 27th, 2010
  56. @Ashley I’m finding out if we can add the the TAP phone to the list on our website.

    Dan May 27th, 2010
  57. ok

    Ashley May 28th, 2010
  58. Thanks for reply and help:)

    :) May 28th, 2010

    Dan June 2nd, 2010

    Dan June 3rd, 2010
  61. @Ashley and everyone else who was wondering if the TAP phone is listed on our website.

    You will find the TAP phone listed on our website as: name and model “Huawei U7510″. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

    Dan July 23rd, 2010
  62. I have a TMobile Tap and I don’t have the IM tab option when I click on messaging. Is there something wrong with my tap? My mom has the same one and hers does not have it either.

    Dalia July 26th, 2010
  63. @Dalia sometimes is the model or version of the software you are running. Have you tried to download Nimbuzz from the website on your Tap phone?

    Dan July 27th, 2010
  64. I have Nimbuzz on my Tap and recently, everytime I go to IM it shows my pic how many contacts online but no longer shows the contacts not allowing me to IM. I cant even get it to settings or the menu

    ZM January 7th, 2011
  65. @ZM thanks for sending your feedback. You mean your contact are not loading? Do you have a data plan? Are you using Nimbuzz on 3G or Wi-Fi? Please let us know
