I'd like to know if turning 3G off on the nokia 701 (or any nokia belle), and being in an area without wifi - Will whatsapp still work? Because from what I understand, Whatsapp is always connected. Does that mean that Whatsapp will force my phone to connect over 3g EVEN IF I TURNED 3G OFF?
This question is directed at people running Belle because you have the option to turn 3G off from the notifications menu. Please check that out, turn Wifi and 3g off and let me know if Whatsapp created a data connection, or not?
I wanna be able to control my data and so I dont want Whatsapp to open my 3g for whatever reason, can i be sure?

Thank you for your post.
It is true that Whatsapp is always sucking data because it delivers message instantly, so it has to be connected at all time. But when you turn off 3G and wifi, Whatsapp should not be able to connect to the internet. Your messages will then get delivered once you reconnect.
Hope this helps,
