Review: WhatSim - A free WhatsApp SIM for Worldwide roaming


With so many IM Apps & Messengers like Yahoo, Gtalk (now called as Hangouts) the open ended IM apps like Viber, Hike have changed the way we chat real time over our mobile device by simply using our mobile number, but one IM app which truly revolutionized the new mode of communication over SMS, was indeed WhatsApp with about 700 million monthly active users. This led to its acquisition by Facebook which has now world's largest base of active users collectively using IM & Social networking services. To inch further an Italian company had launched a unique product called WhatSim, a WhatsApp–only SIM which allows you to use messaging app for free while travelling across 150 countries, with a nominal subscription plan.

Getting to know about WhatSIM

Zeromobile, the company founded by Manuel Zanella, alluded that "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."

Build & Quality

The new SIM will come for EUR 10 (Rs. 714) with worldwide shipping of EUR 5 - Rs. 350 approximately) and that will allow an unlimited text messaging for an year. But there is a small caveat. The unlimited messaging (including location updates & contacts)  is free only for text messages and not for sharing multimedia / files etc and consumer will have to buy credits for sharing photos, videos, and voice messages.

To know about how buy and use, it directly depends on where you are travelling.
