Want to change to a new phone but don’t want to lose the Viber chat messages? Back up and restore Viber messages on iPhone could be easy. Here in this tutorial, I’d like to share several solutions for that.
Viber for Mobile
With Viber for mobile, you can make free calls, video chat, and send free text messages from your iOS/Android device to other Viber users, via 3G or WiFi on any device, in any network and country!
Unlike WhatsApp that requires both WiFi and local cell phone service, Viber needs only WiFi to make free Viber phone calls to any of your friends who have Viber. So it is an ideal choice when you’re traveling overseas. And Viber-Out lets you call non-Viber mobile numbers and landline numbers at low rates. When you’re getting close to your cell phone plan, you can use Viber-out and no more ridiculous overage fees anymore.
How to Backup Viber Messages on iPhone?
I’m moving from iPhone to Android. Is is possible to restore my Viber chats?
Maybe you have the same question as the above user. As you know, messages are not saved or restore automatically in Viber. But if necessary, you can create a backup and then restore it on another device. What’s more, backing up Viber chat history is the best way to protect your conversations that contains critical information from being deleted.
Method 1: Backup Viber Messages via Email
There’re several ways you can choose to backup Viber chat history. One is provided through the Viber app by exporting your Viber message history. Just go to the “More tab –> Settings –> Email message history”, send it to your own email address (in form of CSV). Then you can download the CSV file with all of your Viber chat history from your Email site. However, this method is unintuitive, the backup file does not include attached photos and media files, and can not be restored to your iPhone.

This method is simple. But some iPhone users would hesitate whether to do it or not because this way will restore all the data to iPhone and overwrite all the current iPhone data. You can lose your contacts, messages, photos, and all other data that you haven’t synced to the last backup file, is it desirable to do so? Don’t too worry!
