-5 Deal Score
9,369 Views
Just saw this on another forum. Free Whatsapp use around the world with no catch!

https://www.knowroaming.com

All you have to do is buy their $9.99 SIM card, install the official Knowroaming IOS/Android app, and you can make unlimited Whatsapp messages/calls everywhere

I have ordered a few SIM cards to try out the service, so far I have not encountered any big issues other than having to manually update the APN (It is not difficult if you pay attention to the user guide)

Here are voucher codes gathered in this thread, seems most offer 30% Off purchase of SIM card + additional free $5 credit / FB/Twitter $5 bonus.

KATLA43
JONCH57
TERCH90
CHRGO67
HINCH35


*Update (June 14th 2017)

Free Whatsapp data/calls are still functional as of today.

- Unlimited Data now in 100+ countries
Get 1-Day Unlimited Data FREE with purchase
Use code DATA100 (good until June 15 2017)

Whatsapp is free, but data is isn't free.

Read carefully what is this offer about...
Or just get Tmobile and they have free international roaming data worldwide. I have used it in Meixco, Germany, spain and Italy.

Also true, but not everyone are Tmobile subscribers.

This deal could benefit Verizon Prepaid / Straight Talk users.

Some tips for you all

1) You don't need to install the app, I just registered on my laptop on this address
https://mobile.knowroaming.com
2) To setup the APN follow this instructions from KnowRoaming step-by-step guide to change APN
3) KATLA43 is a code for 30% off purchase + free $10 data/voice Credits. Remember to share the deal in facebook and twitter for an additional

$5 credit for each account (you have to click on the sharing button immediately after you submit the order)

When you first purchase the SIM card, the initial balance is $0. Theoretically you can use this $0 balance SIM card for whatsapp usage and it will be valid indefinitely (or until this company shuts down?)

The usefulnes of this SIM card is free whatsapp usage while roaming. Or if you want to get a whatsapp plan for your kids so you can always stay in touch with them.

Here is a $5 voucher

This code expires on 2017-01-07.

Wonder why all the TDs? Wonder if from the staff since not from FreedomPop...

$10 SIM with no data usage cost for folks that can live with WhatsApp is pretty impressive. And customer support is much better.

FREE WhatsApp usage worldwide (including calls and photo/video messaging)

Does this mean I don't need Wi-Fi to use WhatsApp?
Does this mean I won't be charged for data if I use WhatsApp?
What major carriers does this knowroaming use in the United States?

Need more details of what I'm signing for.

I have Arse Teats & Tyrants and I've been violated by them more times than I can count when I've had to use my phone from other countries to call the U.S. And before anyone scores me over voluntary phone usage, they were several emergencies and I had no choice but to call. Even with an international plan the rates are purgatory generated. This sim in a cheap unlocked phone sounds perfect. I'm turning a Northerly thumb on it while I wait for Project Fi phones to show up in stock.

seems like a good deal, Verizon charges $10/day for international data out of your bucket, this is unlimited.

I have received the card, and actually the setup is quite simple and you do not need to install the app for it to work. If you are familiar with how to set the APN the process is quick and simple.

KATLA43 is a code for 30% off purchase + free $5 data/voice Credits. Remember to share the deal in facebook and twitter for an additional $10 credit (you have to do this right after you submit the order)

It depends on your usage behaviour. If you just wants to be contactable via whatsapp while roaming, then definitely the knowroaming sim is cheaper option.
