    hi all,

    i have had a message from a mate saying whatsapp messenger is gonna start charging for messaging. i have been told its free to people with more than x amount of sends.

    it starts out like a chain message saying if you dont send this to all your contacts you will lose whatsapp. you will be charged £25 per month and the whatsapp symbol goes from green to red

    so i think nothing of it until it says have a look at your whatsapp contacts (press the pencil on the top right) it says all people will have an error message. this is true for all of my contacts, those i message and those i dont

    so my question now is

    is there any truth in this

    if anyone can shed any light on this it would be appreciated.

    i got this message form me niece told her not to be so gullible! its been going around for yrs. BUT there has beena problem with whatsapp statuses - i contacted support. So if you get errors its a whatspp problem not someone tryingto tell you fibs. My app was free yrs ago but i know now you have to pay for the app if you dont have it but everything else is free as it works over wifi!
    If you remember every now and again you get a similar one from facebook MSN and other social media sites- people trying to scare us that our lives will end lol! sorry. If in doubt check here or the likes of hoax-slayer

    plus how can they charge you £25 to your monthly bill - if you dont have one???? they dont know what contracts people have got or how they pay for thier whatsapp. AS its over wifi they going to charge your ISP ? and how they going to find that out.!!!
    like the fb privacy thing just scaremongering!
