WhatsAPP Messenger Smartphone question

Morning All,

Got a Samsung Galaxy ACE mobile. Son's in s.America and wants to communicate via this app - thing is, I can't get a decent answer from TMobile as to whether I'm using the monthly tariff DATA usage that I have if I use my home WiFi to connect?? I think I DON'T use any monthly quota. Can anyone help with this question please??

Thanks

My understanding is that if you connect by wifi to your router you are not using your mobile operator's connection for data and therefore no charge.

I thought so too, Woolwell - I think TMobile just want to charge me for SMS external to the UK!! This s/w though, is excellent - especially as it's free.

Many thanks,

Ange x

ps - got another query, but will start a new post.
