What's Up App - same as BB messenger?

Hi all,


I just wanted to ask, a friend who has an iPhone asked me to download What's Up App so we could send free messages. I know after the free trial I'd have to pay a small amount for the subscription, but if I send messages would I pay extra then? Does the messaging system work like the Blackberry messenger?


Apologies if this has been posted before, and thanks from now for the help.

Re: What's Up App - same as BB messenger?

I guess you are talking of the WhatsApp application.



Maybe you can find valuable information directly on their FAQ section.

Especially the fact that the servers require your phone number, which is not the case of the BlackBerry Messenger.


I did not find any information about fees or premium to use that application.
