Use WhatsApp without Wifi or Data Connection
(Manuel Zanella Rngineer, Founder and CEO of Zeromobile, the company behind WhatSim, says,
“WhatsApp is the future of mobile communications. Its only “limit” is the data connection especially when you are traveling because the roaming charges are expensive and you can’t always find Wi-Fi everywhere and it is not always free. As someone who appreciates and uses WhatsApp, I tried to figure out how to get around this problem. That’s why WhatSim is an extraordinary opportunity for WhatsApp.”
WhatSim is available to buy via the WhatSim website, with the company also planning to make it available via “network of local distributors in over 100 countries.”
