Once you download and install the Nimbuzz app on your mobile device, you're ready to set up your account. Don't worry, it's easy.

  1. Open the Nimbuzz application.
  2. Tap on the blue Register button.
  3. You'll be prompted to enter your mobile phone number; do so.
  4. You'll then be offered the opportunity to sign in using your Facebook account. This is a handy feature that enables Nimbuzz to find your Facebook friends on the Nimbuzz account so that you can start chatting with them right away. Another benefit is that if you sign in using Facebook, you have one less password to remember (since you'll be using your Facebook password to login into Nimbuzz rather than creating a​ new password). Signing in using Facebook is optional so if you'd rather have a unique login for Nimbuzz, just tap the Skip option located at the top right of the screen.
  5. You will then be offered the opportunity to select a screen name and a password. You'll also be asked to verify that you're at least 17 years old. 
  6. Once you've entered the above information, you'll be presented with the option to let Nimbuzz access your contacts so they can show you which of your friends are on the service. 

After you're signed in, you'll be able to chat with "Jimmy," a chatbot who can help you to learn about the features of the service.
