What is the point of using WhatsApp to make free calls when you are required to top-up using your mobile phone network.
In reality and in a way making free calls isn’t really free. Although the App itself is free you still need to be connected to the internet, and connecting to the internet requires payment to your mobile phone network to get internet access. So you have to pay for it.
If you purchase a cash top-up as PAYG of which the minimum is £5 then data charges will quickly drain your the cash you put into the phone. Either way, if you purchase a subscription, pack or bundle through your network or carrier then you are still paying to talk or text for free. So, in reality WhatsApp is free to use if you pay the mobile phone network to download the App and use it. So you still have to pay for it.
The other way is to use WhatsApp over a wireless network or wifi but again in reality it is not free, you have to pay the wifi network company. You can go to a café but only if you want to treat yourself to a coffee which you will have to pay for the coffee say about £3.50 and then get your free wifi access to use whatsApp.
Free Wifi-hotspots – again, unless you are mostly on the go, do you really want to leave the comfort of your home to sit in a café, station, airport, stand outside or even go somewhere public with strangers around you and then you have to think about network security as well. Asking around for passwords are hassle as well.
So, in conclusion, whatsApp as an app is free but calling and messaging isn’t in a way.

Extremist far-right winger David Cameron is to introduce the ban on muslim women’s face veil which is a breach of womens human rights. In a free society people are free to express their needs, desires, wishes, speech as they want. So, what is stopping #Cameron from banning topless garments and mini skirts as they are a provocation in the same way Cameron thinks that people under the veil are perhaps burglars or jewelry shop raiders.
Cameron has targeted a soft-spot – women! he could have targeted men to not to wear the prayer cap but he knows that would spark the ultimate outrage that Cameron could loose not only his tie but not be wearing a suit to office. What this shows is that Cameron has actually informants from far-right wingers and is slowly moving towards being a extreme far-right winger.
Boycott Cameron’s decision to overturn the ban on face veils because this is a breach of human rights. The breach denies the freedom of expression and the freedom to dress as women want. If Cameron is has become an extremist on how women dress he should be taught that not all women specially in UK carry bombs under their veil. If he still fails to understand then he is also neglecting far extreme forms of dressing in the fashion industry which should also be banned such transparent and provocative dresses. On the other hand he could encourage women of all different types to wear face veils. Otherwise what Cameron is doing going down the French route and following the fascist French president to ban the burka/veil in public.
This is not just a boycott on lifting the ban on the veil but a boycott to stop the denial of women’s human rights, freedom of expression and freedom to dress. If you think this is right then raise your voice now and speak out against the wrong decision.

EE formerly known as T-mobile is so shit, although they offer for users to top-up £1.00 for 7 days, you can’t top-up another £1.00 if you have used-up all your credit or minutes before the 7 day period but I have my own trick to out-win them since they think they are so clever, I will just buy another SIM and put £1.00 on it, haha, fools !
