About knowing if the other side is online or not:
When you use Viber, you can tell indirectly if your contact is online as follows:
When you make a Viber call, you will first see "Calling". It will change to "Ringing" if your contact is online and their phone is literally ringing.
When you text, "Delivered" means the message has been received on the other side's phone (they're online). If you only see "Sent", it means it's been sent from you, but pending the other side to come online (they're offline at the moment).
In the future we might add an "Online" status message, but we still don't know when this will happen.
