Can I use a mobile purely for whatts app (via WiFi) without paying for a top up on a sim card?

It is for my daughter who likes to send me messages on whatts app using my wifes phone.

I have a spare phone and orderered a sim (as u need a phone number for whatts app), it would also be for photos and apps etc.

The thing I don't want is for her to accidently rack up a phone bill or text messages etc so looking for a way to stop that.

Cheers

Yeh good shout ta

Order a pay as you go sim online and dont register and stick it in the phone then you wont rack up a bill as there is no credit

Then you can use whatsapp via wifi for free and apps games

Yeh done that, just wasnt sure if it woukd work without registering but it works a treat, cheers

You can get the sim, set up whatsapp, then remove the sim and use all the other functions via wifi.
Not sure if you need to top up to get the text from whatsapp though.

You don't need a sim at all, follow these instructions pcadvisor.co.uk/how…3g/
Treat the sim-less phone as a tablet in the tutorial
