    im in india and this is not cheap.... a normal call to a Mobile without using rate cutter costs rs 0.60 and a normal call to a Landline costs rs 0.90 per minute ..... so its still 40-50% cheaper on your local carrier network than using viber or skype

      "At this stage Viber can only be installed and used on admin-only
      accounts. This might change in the future, and if there are changes
      we'll let you know." - This makes it practically useless. No person
      should use an admin-only account for everyday pc use, very bad security
      practice.
