Only devices with a SIM card/ phone number can work with WhatsApp. WA uses your phone number as your ID...

Most folks these days on "smart" or "feature" phones can get WhatsApp - it's supported on all these platform: Android, iOS, Blackberry, Nokia S40, Symbian, Windows Phone. But it does need a phone number tied to your device...

Just a heads up that the Whatsapp group is being used for WATR - Whatsapp Trip Reporting Smile

So those interested in gazillion pics and so on, in near-real time - PM Abhishek your mobile #.

Members - I think it's fair to say now that this group has been an unmitigated success, and I would urge anybody still in two minds about signing up to give it a go, it's pretty fun.

Sure, traffic on this forum itself has suffered as a result, but the mobile platform is a convenient affair for many, and the overall phenomenon and shift is just history in motion. It's a lot more simplistic to capture an immediate reaction to a story than posting a thread and awaiting replies over a day/week.



The only downside I can spot is the lack of any means to archive good chunks of discussions - they merely get lost over time. Yes, you can periodically 'save' conversations into your email inbox and hunt for any fruitful pieces of text you might have read/written, but it's a bit of a hassle.

Other than that, topics sometimes go astray and occasionally cross the boundaries of aviation to other fields altogether, but I guess that goes with the territory.

I need to get a better phone. One with WhatsApp, that is.

Pardon my ignorance, but what exactly is WhatsApp? A group messaging app? I am asking as hardly anyone in the US uses it, though I have heard it referred to many times by family and friends in India and elsewhere.

Yes - it's a smartphone app which is similar to something like iMessage (or whatever it's called), but is cross platform. And most folks in the US I know - actively have/ use Whatsapp - so I'm surprised you're not seeing it as yet.

Essentially unlimited global SMS/ MMS for free (only data plan/ wifi needed).

I'd wager my bet on a similar call service taking off in future (if we consider WA to be a 'messaging' service) and that might spell the end of cellphone networks as we know it.

They already exist in their infancy (Viber, Skype, etc.) using which you can see and talk to people using just an Internet connection and no SIM, but we're yet to see a dedicated service like WhatsApp really grab the market by its horns. Hopefully in a couple of years time.

It looks like Abhishek has not been active on the forum lately. I PM'd my number to him some weeks ago, but he still has not added me to the group. Is there anyone else I can PM my number to?
