Saudi users of Internet messenger application Viber reported on Saturday that the service was back on their smartphones, despite the authorities insisting it was still banned.
The absolute monarchy, which imposes strict Internet censorship, banned the service in June after Viber failed to comply with unspecified regulations.
"I received an update from the Apple Store, so I updated the application and it worked," said iPhone user Haifa Salim.
"The service is back with no problems," said Khaled Mohammed, also after installing a Viber update.
