Hey, I'm going to france in a couple of weeks and was wondering if my whatsapp would still work. I have a blackberry add on so will that cover it?

I think it should work as when abroad roaming on the BlackBerry Add-on will work (but is restricted to 10MB per day)

However I would prefer someone who has used whatsapp when not on wifi on a bb to confirm (and not guess based on what I have said) Smiley Happy

Your BB add on will give you free 10mb usage a day so you should be able to use your WhatsApp so long as you don't send too many pictures.

hi rachel,  you are allowed 10 mb per day of data while you are there, so you may be able to manage,

just be aware that the costs of data whilst in france is 45 pence per MB.

 

Try and use whatsapp via free wifi hotspots like in hotels and cafes etc to keep the costs down

it would be best to use wifi for whatsapp and normal sms when not connected
