Manuel Zanella Rngineer, Founder and CEO of Zeromobile, the company behind WhatSim, says, "WhatsApp is the future of mobile communications. Its only "limit" is the data connection especially when you are traveling because the roaming charges are expensive and you can't always find Wi-Fi everywhere and it is not always free. As someone who appreciates and uses WhatsApp, I tried to figure out how to get around this problem. That's why WhatSim is an extraordinary opportunity for WhatsApp."

WhatSim will be priced at EUR 10 (approximately Rs 714) for unlimited text messaging services for a year. WhatsApp services will be free for receiving text messages, location updates and contacts whereas for multimedia messages such as photos, videos and voice messages, users will have to buy credits which will depend on where you are travelling.

Zanella further explains, "The solution we have developed is simple and intuitive. With €5 you get 1000 credits that you can use, for instance, to exchange 50 photos or 10 videos in many countries around the world. There are no limits to sharing your position and contacts. This way we guarantee the utmost transparency. Buying a recharge is quick and easy: just go to our website even from your smartphone and soon even from a dedicated app."

Users will be able to buy WhatSim through their website although the company is further planning to create a network of local distributors in more than 100 countries to facilitate easy purchases.
