hike messenger

Hike is an instant messaging and social media app that launched in 2012 and claims to have over 35 million users. It lets you message your friends and share images, music, videos and graphical stickers. It also lets you send free SMS to friends who aren’t hike users. The free SMS function current only works for sending to phones in India, where hike is based.

This version of hike officially supports the following Nokia S40 phones: Asha 201, Asha 205, Asha 206, Asha 210, Asha 300, Asha 301, Asha 302, Asha 303,  C3-00, C3-01, X2-01 and X3-02. It may work on other Nokia S40 phones and some Sony Ericsson phones.  It’s unlikely to work on other brands because it uses Nokia proprietary Java packages that aren’t available except on Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones. The jad link at the bottom of the page is a signed version that should work on all the supported phones. If you get a error on an unsupported phone try using this unsigned jad. You can also try downloading the app directly from hike.

If Hike installs but fails to run with an “application access set to not allowed” error:

  • Go to Menu > Apps > Apps and games > select Hike with the arrow keys > press options > Application sett. > Applicat. access and set “Network access” to “Always allowed”, “Ask first time” or “Ask every time”.
  • Repeat the process for Connectivity under Communication and “Read user data” and “Edit user data” under Data access.

If you do manage to get hike working on an unsupported phone please leave a comment telling me which phone it works on and whether you used the signed or unsigned version so I can update the post.

    • The only version of the Hike app that I have is the one on this page.

  7. im not finding hike for nokia e5-00. Its saying certificate expired. Solution please.

    • Either temporarily set your phone’s date to sometime in 2014 until after you download and install the app or use the unsigned jad link in the post to download a version without a certificate.

  8. Hey anyone tell me…does hike works on my nokia x2-00..or the hike company stoped for s40?….then say how to solve ‘application access set to not allowed’..its urgent…

    • Q. “Does hike works on my nokia x2-00?”
      A. Maybe, You can read in the post that out of six readers who have that phone, 2 say it works and 4 say it doesn’t.

      Q. “Has Hike company stopped for s40?”
      A. No, they never started. Hike Has never officially supported the X2-02, you can see the list of supported phones in the post or at https://support.hike.in/entries/21597009-How-to-download-hike-

      Q. “How to solve ‘application access set to not allowed’?”
      A. Go to Apps and games on your phone, long press on the app you want to change,choose options, choose suite settings, choose permissions.

      In permissions there will be several choices like connectivity, media and storage. Each choice had a sub-menu where you could set access to: always allowed, ask once, ask every time, or not allowed. Open all those sub-menus and set each one to the most permissive choice that’s not grayed out (set it to anything except “not allowed”.

    • I tried but still cant able to find solution for access not allowed..can u send me the access allowed file if possible…

    • There’s no magic file. If you set all the permissions to allowed as explained above and Hike doesn’t work it means Hike is not compatible with your phone.

  9. My phone is Cherry Mobile W7 I want to download Hike Messenger

  10. How to download it.

  11. My phone is nokia asha 206 is not supported i am go into setting and trying that if u say but that say this is not available for this application plz help me

    • What is it that settings is saying is not available?

  12. so it cannot download in China made phones.

    • To use these apps your phone needs to support Java ME. It doesn’t matter where your phone was made.

  13. My Phone Samsung Wave 525.. You have messenger facebook for it please tell me!
    Thank you!

    • There are many Facebook apps here. Type Facebook in the search box to find them.

      There’s no Java ME Messenger app so there’s no Messenger here. Maybe in the bada app store?

  14. My phone nokia 206 hike wil work or nt tel me

    • Maybe, no one has tried Hike on the Nokia 206 and reported whether it works or not.

  15. when i download hike on nokiax2-01 then it ask for mob number and password received. After that it says for set application network not to allow.i did that then also it not work.Now what i do for hike pls tell me……….

    • The majority of people who have tried Hike on the Nokia X2-01 say it doesn’t work. Apps either work on a given phone or not. There’s no magic to make non-working apps suddenly work.

  16. My phn is nokia c3-00 when im downloading hike it is showing certificate invalid according to phns date and i have also updated the date and time so what should i do

    • Try setting the phone’s date to 3-Dec-2014 or earlier temporarily while you install Hike. That may allow you to install it in spite of the out-dated certificate.

      If that doesn’t work try deleting hike.jad from your phone and installing the .jar or using the unsigned jad link in the post.

  17. My phn was asha501 hike was installing and last please contact app provider to fix this what can i do

    • Hike has been reported to not work on the Asha 501. As far as I know, there’s no way to make it work.

  18. Did it work in Nokia x2-02

  19. will it work on my Huawei Ideosx5 please answer me.

    • No

  20. I like messenger faster

    • Go to Apps and games, long press on the app you want to change,choose options, choose suite settings, choose permissions.

      In permissions there will be several choices like connectivity, media and storage. Each choice had a sub-menu where you could set access to: always allowed, ask once, ask every time, or not allowed. Open all those sub-menus and set each one to the most permissive choice that’s not grayed out and something other than not allowed.

  26. why cant install in asha 503

    • Hike doesn’t work on very many phones. U suspect it uses a Java ME optional feature that few phones support.

  27. sir my nokia c2-00 but it showing invalid date

    • Set the correct date in phone settings.

  28. my nokia asha 302 hike could not be install. May i knw why??

    • China phones don’t usually support Java ME. Try some MRE (.vxp) apps, they might work.
