    Assuming you were jailbroken, and using a Cydia app. If that's the case, unfortunately, there's no way back. Once you have updated your iOS you are stuck with it. You now have to play the waiting game and hope that the jailbreak for iOS 6 arrives soon.

    I'm not jailbroken, and never have been, so I'm not familiar with this Viber thing that you mention. Was that your app for making free calls?

    If you are in the US, Google Voice offers this functionality. It doesn't work elsewhere, though.

    The Viber app is not a jail break tweak. It's available in the App Store.

    As to why it won't work after an upgrade to iOS 6, I don't know why. I tried to download it on my Mini (which is running iOS 6.0). When I downloaded it, I got this notice:

    Then, I was able to go right into the app and start installing my phone number. I had to stop because I'm not registered to this service. Do note that to get to the "Viber Setup" screen, I had to (1) make sure all Notifications were on (sound too) and that (2) I allowed Viber access to my Contacts.

    So, what is happening when you try to use the app? Or, what is NOT happening? A little more detail may help us narrow the problem down.
