So, you feel great, finally there is an app that you can use with your mates who have far more expensive smart phones. The problem here is that this app is 'designed to always be online & connected.' According to the WhatsApp site under Nokia Faq, who 'strongly recommend that you sign up to a unlimited data plan.' But, what happens if your network supplier does not offer such a service, remember we live in a global community now, or your pocket won't stretch to that sort of plan? So, boys & girls unless your paying for 'all you can eat data,' I'd forget about this app & stay with sms.

Hi Roguecroce, Welcome to the Nokia Forums!
A good way to avoid using large amounts of data if you do not have a suitable data plan is to connect only when you are connected to a wifi connection, or set the applications to manually push data.
This way you can have the applications you want and still be able to use them whenever you are in range of a suitable WiFi connection.
I hope this helps!
I know that WhatsApp for Asha phones, while being an awesome app, is always online. So if you're using a prepaid SIM like me, WhatsApp eats your load/credits/money when WiFi connection is absent. I've learned this after I tried this app using my previous phone (C3-00).
Now I'm using Asha 302 while WhatsApp is available as a shortcut to download/update, I'm happy by only using standard SMS and MMS
just got nokia asha 302 and got told that whatsapp would work with wifi only. I havent got data plan and 3g has been turn off as was eating my credit. Can anyone tell me how to get whatsapp to work as cant recive or send any messages. Is there anyway to get this to work??
in that case just DELETE the configuration settings u saved,which have been sent by the operator.and check the credit for 2 or 3 regular intervals,whether its deducting or not !!!!!
I downld from store and whatsapp's webside aslo..i
