There are many users out who own a mobile device that doesn’t support a SIM card. Well, today we will explain you how you can install and use WhatsApp application on a WiFi-only tablet.
Using “TextNow App”
“TextNow App” is an application that you can use on devices that run on iOS, Android, Mac OS X and Windows OS. You will be able to use the TextNow number when trying to install the WhatsApp application on your device.
So, after installing the WhatsApp application on your mobile device, you will need to “Accept Terms & Conditions” and use your TextNow number. After that, you will need to wait for the SMS Verification Fail and use the “Start Call Verification” via the TextNow number. You will then receive a call and when you answer a robot will tell you a code that you will need to use to log into your WhatsApp account.
Using Landline Number
It is good to know that you can do the same with a landline number. By using the landline number, the SMS verification will fail again and a robot will call to your landline number via the “Call Me” verification process. Once the robot tells you the verification number, you will need to use it on your WhatsApp application and you’re done.
Will WhatsApp Ever Use Normal Accounts (No Phone Number Required)?
Unfortunately, it seems that WhatsApp will keep the phone number as an ID. In other words, we will not be able to register a WhatsApp account by using a username, email and password. At the same time, the company will most likely not release a full WhatsApp version for desktop computers.
