WhatSim- The WhatsApp Sim which is more than just a SIM

WhatsApp is undoubtedly the most popular social networking app and the huge 700 million active users is definitely a proof of its popularity. To buttress this increasing popularity, an Italian company Zeromobile has released a special WhatsApp SIM known as WhatSim which will help users to use the app for free. The WhatSim will be announced for about 150 countries. The WhatSim will be very useful for people frequently traveling overseas. Calling over phone or accessing internet while travelling becomes difficult while abroad. So this SIM will be immensely helpful.

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.” He said, “The solution we have developed is simple and intuitive. With €5 you get 1000 credits that you can use, for instance, to exchange 50 photos or 10 videos in many countries around the world. There are no limits to sharing your position and contacts. This way we guarantee the utmost transparency. Buying a recharge is quick and easy: just go to our website even from your smartphone and soon even from a dedicated app.”

WhatSim will cost €10 (£7.50) a year. Since this SIM is mainly aimed for WhatsApp users, you will be able to send messages only. Other media like images and videos incur extra cost of around €5 for 1000 credits that allow you to exchange 50 photos, 10 videos or 200 voice messages in most countries. The service will be available from 400 operators across some 150 countries.

    I ‘m eagerly waiting for it. When this sim will arrive in india? Does it function like a normal sim card or not? If not why would people use it?

    I am also eager about this , i feel though the main downside to this would be having to use so much data from your mobile account. However, mobile produces will probably start making larger data packages so maybe it wont be so bad and everyone is happy.

    The Whatsim is amazing . People spend lots of money in purchasing data packs just only to stay in touch with friends and families. Now Whatsim will help us to use whatsapp free of cost. I am waiting for it.

    the idea of the whatsim,is surely original,helpful for those who travel out of the country very frequently,i have a few family members and friends when they travel,complain about the amount of data they have to use or how the connection keeps cutting and being over charged for a simple small phone call,i wait to see the progress of this in the future
