New Delhi: Are you aware that you can use WhatsApp messenger even without any internet connection on your smartphone? Yes, you can! The trick lies in a SIM which connects you to your friends and relatives on WhatsApp without any internet connection.
And the SIM is called: Chat SIM!
How to purchase Chat SIM? You can log on to the company's website chatsim.com and place an order.
However, the order will have to be prepaid, and that too to be paid in Euro. To buy Chat SIM, you will have to pay a base fee of 10 Euros, which is equivalent to around Rs 745.
In addition to the cost of the SIM, you will have to bear an additional fee of 10 Euros as usage charges.
Also, you will need to pay extra 10 Euros for using the SIM in the validity period of 1 year, as well as for using the text and emojis options. For sharing images, videos or making calls, you will need to have a multimedia pack that also starts at 10 Euros for 2,000 credits. With 2,000 credits, you would be able to exchange 200 photos or 40 videos or 80 minutes of WhatsApp calls. The cost rises as you go for a multimedia pack of 5000 or 10,000 credits.
If you would like to buy Chat SSIM in India, then you pay extra shipping charges of around 7.50 Euros or around Rs 560. So, if you are travelling abroad, it makes sense to buy Chat SIM with 2,000 credits, which will cost you around Rs 2,800, than paying a hefty data charges.
