We’ve been receiving a lot of reports of users having their Whatsapp service being extended for free. In some cases, users have gotten a free year while some lucky few have received free lifetime extension in their license terms.
We have been unable to find a correlation between who is getting the upgrades. It is possible Whatsapp is rolling out free upgrades in phases and everyone might get a free upgrade, but we just not sure about this.
WhatsApp, a messaging and voice service, which has now overtaken conventional SMS traffic for all global telecom operators combined, is unique in the sense that it doesn’t rely on ads. Instead it offers an in-app purchase for continued use. The pricing model is as follows:
- 1 year – PKR 105
- 3 year – PKR 280
- 5 year – PKR 389
We will update the article as soon as we receive more information about the matter. In the meantime, did you receive free Whatsapp service? Let us know in the comments below!
