A spin-off from the 4g replacement for Airwave, it says. Which could

Or another reason not to go for EE. ;-)

Especially not at 15p for a text message, when I can send one for 2p on O2.


I think, for a lot of people, WhatsApp has replaced testing.


The ability to set up small (in effect) cc groups makes it a genuine
killer app.


Yes, that seems to be the key feature. It also compresses so they transmit
quickly, using little data.


Also now that bandwidth is so much more readily available it
effortlessly does what MMS never did manage to popularise.

For many users it has also replaced not just Skype, but voice calls in
general (especially International).


Yes, much cheaper, or even effectively free.
