    I'm having a HUGE problem here, I updated to IOS7, and updated all my apps on WiFi. I got a call today from my cell phone company saying I used 5 gigs of data so far, and im only 3 days into my cycle. I look up to see what going on, lo-and-behold, viber has used 4.7 GB of data in 3 days! How is this even possible? I have no video messages or picture messages, and have been using the app for months without problem. Is there anyone else seeing this issue or a possible fix?

    This is a very rare issue, and we're working hard in our labs to try and replicate it in one of our iOS7 devices, but still haven't gotten to the bottom of this issue.

    Please contact us via email at, and explain the problem. One of our representatives will guide you through some tests and hopefully find a solution to the problem.

    Thank you in advance, and we apologize for the temporary inconvenience :)

    Same issue

    I am also having the exact same problem! I'm burning through data like CRAZY, and I havent changed my usage habits at all. I just sent them an email regarding this, and will await their reply. Will post if I hear anything else.
