To delete a contact, open the Chat screen of that contact and tap ‘Delete’ at the bottom of the screen. To delete a group chat, open the Group Chats screen and choose Delete Group.

This is because every message sent through Viber has its own ID number (Message ID), so the message is not deleted unless you also delete this number. If you want to permanently delete all messages and media in a conversation it must be deleted from Viber servers, and that is done by deleting it on your computer.

What if I’m not using my smartphone every day & Will Viber still consume my data plan’s allowance?

First of all, Viber only uses your mobile data or Wi-Fi connection when it’s needed. The app works on a ‘connection sharing’ model, meaning that your phone is actually connecting to other users over the Internet (Viber Cloud). That way you’re not using any mobile credit to receive calls nor sending messages. Furthermore, if you want to use your device exclusively as a regular phone without Viber (even when connected via WiFi), you can simply turn off the cellular/mobile data access in your device’s settings. This functionality is available for Android: Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Access Point Names and iOS: Settings > Cellular [at top]> Data enabled.
