According to a report on TELECOM TALK, Nimbuzz, the popular instant messaging service would soon roll out a push notification service for Aircel subscribers. Compliant with all Java and Symbian mobile phones, Nimbuzz Ping works (shows you as ‘available’ to your contacts), even with the application turned off. In the sense, you’ll still continue to get SMS notifications.

Ping for Aircel

To begin with, users need to ensure that their number is registered on Nimbuzz. Once there, they can browse through Menu>Settings>Nimbuzz Ping, and have it enabled. The service has been made available at zero cost. In the video below, the entire process of getting Nimbuzz Ping has been explained.


However, you could also scroll further below to get yourself the procedure sheet:

  • Firstly, download and subsequently install the latest build of Nimbuzz on your Aircel network powered Symbian handset
  • You will then get a pop-up asking you to register your phone number for Nimbuzz. To do so, all you have to do is go to Options>Settings>Nimbuzz Ping
  • Go offline
  • You should now receive an push notification SMS to enable the service

This service for now is being made available for Aircel subscribers only. Others should follow soon, too
