It has to do with the year expiring, not the update.
Tried deleting and reinstalling, didn't work.  It's attached to your phone #.

On iOS whatsapp will start charging $1/year subscription. Old users will not have to pay. Buy it quickly.

Tip about WhatsApp: You do not need to have cellular service on the device you wish to use (at least not on Android), just sign up witha different number. That number will then get a text with a code. Whats App will display a message that it cant verify, so you can click Call Me, then just enter the code that you got , and you will be registered on WhatsApp with the phone number you used.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Worth every one of those ninety nine pennies IMO. It is a really good universal messaging app.

Me too. The problem is, even if I pay, what happens with all the people I use it to chat with who decide that THEY don't wanna pay?
