WhatsApp – How it works ?
WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android and Nokia and yes, those phones can all message each other! Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message and stay in touch with your friends.
Now that we know what it is, considering the above information, if you are from India. You must be aware that most of the networks have cut down the SMS cap to only 200 per day. Added to the restrictions even the price of an each SMS is 9 paise to any other network like airtel, Vodafone etc. making us wonder why are we still using cell phones when we can’t SMS our buddies without any restrictions. Now WhatsApp is a blessing in disguise to deal with the present issue. If you got an iPhone, or an android BlackBerry, Nokia or any other latest phone with touch functionality. Go ahead and download the Whatsapp and connected to your friends without any restrictions.
