Whats App and data usage


I know I can’t use Republic Wireless to call the Bahamas, but I would like to install Whats App and use the message function. I tried to enter a Bahamas phone # in my contacts, but wasn’t able to. Can you tell me how to connect with a Bahamas phone. Also, i have Moto G Play and a basic plan. Do I have to upgrade to use Whats App?



Hi @karenn.lxnhmr,

You will need a data connection to use WhatsApp but it doesn’t necessarily need to be cell data. A WiFi Internet connection will work just as well.

It’s been awhile since I last used WhatsApp, however, if I remember correctly once you’ve registered your phone with WhatsApp, anyone else in your contacts who’s also a WhatApp user will appear as an option to correspond with via WhatsApp. Is the individual you wish to communicate with in the Bahamas also a WhatsApp user? If not, you will not be able to use WhatsApp to communicate with them.
