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.

In addition to basic messaging iPhone, Android, Nokia and BlackBerry WhatsApp Messenger users can send each other unlimited images, video and audio media messages.

WhatsApp is free to try for 12 months, then their fees are only $1.99 per year. about the same as 20 SMS text messages, which I think is quite a good deal.

    It also breaks you from opening pictures. I’d recommend NOT downloading it till a fix is updated.
