    Hiya, I've read that a lot of people use this on holiday.

    So please can you tell me:
    What it does.
    Pros and Cons.
    Any hidden costs.

    Thank you. :)

    Love it! Love it! Love it!
    It's 99 cents (at least here) and that is the only cost.
    You can send texts, voice recordings and photos!
    It's fabulous for keeping in touch with people who you otherwise could not do so without higher costs. Our Wendy (and others "over there" :D ) use it to stay in contact. I've been known to send photos of Florida sunshine and other things... (birdies, you name it). :yes:

    Soooo, if you do go with it, let me know! :D

    I mainly just stare at mine waiting for Tink or Becca to send some messages. Hours days and weeks can pass whilst I wait :(

    Tink, thank you. Sounds good. :)
    The App store has 'WhatsApp Messenger' and it's free. Is that what I need?

    Well, yes. They do. :unsure: Did you want to see the Florida sunshine photos, and the egrets massing on the walkway, or the cardinal landing in the tree, or the orchid outside my office window? See! I didn't think so. ;)

    For those who have WhatsApp and would like to connect with one another, perhaps sending a private message would be the best way. I know it's worked well so far! :D :D
