Whatsapp Free Messenging

Virgin say Whatsapp and Facebook messenger are free including sending pictures and videos.

Please tell me why I was charged for pictures sent on whatsapp using my mobile data.

These charges are all to one number in Canada/United States and is very confusing, so are Virgin being entirely honest when saying this service is free with no charges on the new 4G tariifs

Thanks for your reply. Are you saying that no mobile data will be deducted ONLY

I have been charged 40p per picture sent using my mobile data.

whatsapp and facebook use data. as long as you have data included they are free and you will not be charged for sending messages.

Re: Whatsapp Free Messenging

if you have been charged for the picture message you did not send them though whatsapp

Whatsapp can not use your MMS/SMS it only uses data.

Re: Whatsapp Free Messenging

I am sorry I have never used picture messaging in all my years of mobile phones plus I know nobody on the number which is in Canada/America so my bill has been incorrectly done and trying to get it resolved is a nightmare
