Free Whats App

I see free whats app is included in the new 4g service from Virgin ,,,,,I am just wondering if that is just for sending and receiving text  messages on whats app . Or are whats app messages that include photos and videos free too.

Hi conman,

 

sending messages and sharing pics and video through WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger won’t use up your data allowance.

Re:WhatsApp

Just be aware: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/11/11/uk_info_commissioner_zuckerberg/

"The UK's Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham has fired another warning shot at Facebook over its paused plans to share data with WhatsApp, writing a newspaper column in which she outlines her concerns."

Re: Free Whats App

Well that's interesting. Yes it's great that sending photos and videos to friends on your phones contact list will not use your data allowance from now on.
But, what is now a private photo or video that you send on what's app to one person could also appear on your facebook profile for every Tom DIck and Harry to see. And contacts on your phone that you may not necessarily want to be facebook friends with will automatically become facebook friends.
Saying all that I think it's still good that virgin are letting us access what's app for free, but only because I personally am not on facebook.

Just go into settings and change that, if you can't be bothered to do that you deserve the results ( not you as an individual but anyone, it's been not the tv and whatsapp sent a message to everyone months ago, I changed all the family phones on the same day
