    My friend is using Samsung ch@On phone on prepaid sim card with already istalled ch@tOn on the phone. So far as J&K state has banned sms services for prepaid sims since 2008 therefore my friend is unable to register on Ch@tOn..I request you with utmost humbleness to do the registration online and send the verification code for the number +91-9596504227 so that we could avail the benefits of Ch@tOn messenger.
    Thank you

    My partner and I both installed Chaton and got our verification codes.
    We entered our phone numbers to register and we can’t add eachother as buddies?

    It says “Warning: +61######### is not a chaton subscriber”

    How long should it take to register with the service?

    I don’t think it’s currently available for all android Phones out there (by the moment I wrote this comment at least which is 17th Oct 2011 GMT+7)
    Since my friend Galaxy Mini (GT-S5570) can’t find ChatOn app on Android Market/Samsung Apps..
    Any info on what device it can run??

    • Antonio

      October 17, 2011 at 10:44 pm

      It is available for all Phones, BUT there are phones that, despite of being Android cant handle it, so is quite probable that if we cant find it on the Market is because he cant use it YET.

      Another reason could be that he didnt find it. Many users are stating that you have to type de name perfectly or it wont appear, so Chat or Chat On does not throw any result.

      • Shen

        October 18, 2011 at 12:45 pm

        I’ll take the 1st possibility “BUT there are phones that, despite of being Android cant handle it, so is quite probable that if we cant find it on the Market is because he cant use it YET” rather than the after since I go search for it myself on his phone.. LoL

  32. francis

    October 16, 2011 at 2:56 pm

    Is this available world wide (i.e. Saudi Arabia)? Thanks.. haven’t received the verification code. Kept sending since yesterday.
    Anyone facing thesame problem?

    • NeaL Pradeep

      October 17, 2011 at 9:30 am

      yes its available for the Worldwide!

      • francis

        October 17, 2011 at 10:30 pm

        is operator dependent.. been sending for verification code haven’t received yet.. its already three (3) days of sending.

    so… the only way to have a random chat with a complete stranger… is to reveal your mobile number??? That’s a deal breaker for me.

    • j everly

      October 17, 2011 at 6:23 am

      It’s not meant to be for randomn strangers.
