how to install WhatsApp application

You may be used to using short message services (SMS) from your GSM operators and being charged for each message, which is actually the same as for calling services. Nowadays, more and more people use cell phones with an Internet connection, so they communicate via the Internet using their phones and mobile devices. Now there is a solution that combines the best of both worlds, sending SMS and via the Internet. The result is that the message is sent and received as data. This application is called the WhatsApp® and is available for the most commonly used mobile operating systems, so you can use this application in an iPhone®, BlackBerry®, Nokia® or Android™-based cell phone.
