    Does anyone use viber in place of skype, if so how do they compare and why would you choose one over the other.
    you load it on your phone/tablet/PC/laptop or whatever and they all sync.
    you download the appropriate module, desktop, android etc. So first question what platform/operating system would I download for an old non android phone, a Nokia E61?

    Yes it is Symbian.

    The New Nokias are Windows and have the name Lumia.

    I use both so do my friends. Mainly use them to call family when abroad. If one reception is not good then I try the other. I cant really say either or is much better, Skype might just edge out marginally.

    Viber has super smilies.

    Some people use Viber more than Skype and vice versa... to communicate with people who use Viber I use Viber and vice versa.
