That’s Never Gonna Happen !
WhatsApp is going to cost us money soon. The only way that it will stay free is if you are a frequent user i.e. you have at least 10 people you are chatting with. To become a frequent user send this message to 10 people who receive it (2 ticks) and your WhatsApp logo should turn Red to indicate a frequent user.
The message is a hoax and should not be reposted. WhatsApp has not announced any plans to start charging users to send messages. The message is just one more incarnation in a long line of absurd hoaxes that have falsely claimed that a particular company or service would start charging users if they did not send on a message.
Although it already costs money on the Apple Store ..
The WhatsApp webpage notes:
Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message and stay in touch with your friends.
And WhatsApp has now issued a statement via its website blog confirming that the message is a hoax.
In fact, the message is just one more lame incarnation in a long running series of hoaxes that have falsely claimed that users must send on a message to avoid a service charge. As the following examples reveal, the same false claims have been targeted at users of other services.
This is ( and always will be ) the Whatsapp logo .
