WhatsApp is one of the most popular social networks in the world. But its usability is somewhat limited when users are traveling abroad. And now, an Italian network has just launched a new SIM card called WhatSim which can be used for sending and receiving WhatsApp messages while traveling overseas. This SIM card will support nearly 400 carriers in over 150 countries.
WhatSim is charged at €10 or $11.62 and has no additional charges for the duration of its existence. However, this only applies to messages and you will need to shell out more for sharing images, videos or voice messages. The service comes from Italian virtual mobile network Zeromobile.
Speaking about the launch of WhatSim, the CEO and Founder of Zeromobile Manuel Zanella – “WhatsApp is the future of mobile communications. Its only “limit” is the data connection especially when you are traveling because the roaming charges are expensive and you can’t always find Wi-Fi everywhere and it is not always free. As someone who appreciates and uses WhatsApp, I tried to figure out how to get around this problem. That’s why WhatSim is an extraordinary opportunity for WhatsApp.”
