Are circulating these days alarming messages on WhatsApp: become paid, and only by stratagem could keep it free.
Let's see exactly what it is and what is true.
Many users have reported a message (we have received even ourselves) on Whatsapp rather alarming.
And’ written in a very bad Italian.
Here it is:
Hello to all, it seems that all notices were real, the use of WhatsApp cost money from summer 2012.
If you send this string to 18 different on your list, the icon will be blue and will be free for you.
If you do not believe me see tomorrow at 18 WhatsApp final and have to pay to open, this is the law that this message is to inform all our users, our servers have recently been very congested, therefore asking for your help to solve this problem. We require our active users forward this message to each of the people in your contact list to confirm our active users using WhatsApp, if you do not send this message to all your contacts WhatsApp, then your account will remain inactive with the consequence of losing all their contactsMessage from Jim Balsamic (Ceo of Whatsapp) we had the use of user names on whatsapp Messenger. We are asking all users to forward this message to their entire contact list. If you do not forward this message, it will take as your account is invalid and will be deleted within the next 48 hours.
Please do not ignore this message or whatsapp will not recognize your activation.
If you want to reactivate your account after it has been deleted, A fee of 25,00 to your monthly bill. We are also aware of the issue involving the pictures do not show updates. We are working diligently to resolve this problem and will be up and running as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation from the Whatsapp team”WhatsApp is going to cost us little. The only way it will stay free is if you are a frequent user ie you have at least 10 people are chatting. To become a frequent user Send this
message to 10 people who receive (2 Ticks) and your WhatsApp will turn red logo to indicate a frequent user. Sorry I had no choice!
And check is now showing the status of each individual contact: Status: error
A consideration of all: which company would send a message with a commercial language and grammar so terrible? no.
The message is one of the usual chain letters and it is not absolutely reliable.
[A chain letter is a way to propagate a message causing the recipient to produce multiple copies to be shipped, in turn, to new recipients. ed ]
Avoided in all sorts of ways to turn this message to friends, quiet, There will be no changes highlighted in the message, and the logo will not become red to indicate that you are a frequent user (too bad eh!).
We have been asked “Because when I went in the contact list I have in fact seen a failed status?”
Simple: who has created the false message, took advantage of a temporary inefficiency of WhatsApp to give strength to what he wrote.
The state error was not absolutely linked to the fact that WhatsApp become paid. It was a temporary problem, has now been resolved.
Actually Whatsapp is not entirely free, for no one: read this article for more information: WhatsApp is a paid service! Someone is surprised..
