Because WhatsApp is one of the popular means of communication in the modern age, its not surprising that people would want to find ways to use it cost-free or better yet, internet-free. There are times you just need to send a text or document to someone but because either you have run out of cellular data or you are in area where Wi-Fi is inaccessible, it almost impossible. But worry not, because there other alternatives you can use to use WhatsApp with no Wi-Fi internet connection. Here is how:

1. Use WhatsApp via unlimited SMS plans

Of course, we don’t mean that SMSes can be sent via WhatsApp. We all know that WhatsApp doesn’t use the mobile networks that SMS employ, but rather they take advantage of an internet connection, thus it would be odd if the WhatsApp messages came with SMS options.
However, you can find a lot of SMS alternatives that are influenced by the WhatsApp style. You can explore unlimited texting plans offered by many mobile phone companies. Take advantage of these plans while still retaining the more familiar WhatsApp interfaces. Check out some of the best texting apps to find one that meets your needs.

2. Catch up with your message backlog

So many times we browse right past important messages that we many not notice at first. If you lack an internet connection then take it as an opportunity to catch up on the backlog of messages.
During this time, you can go through your past messages, read, and even delete some to create storage space. You can even look at your photos and videos and organize them as you wish. As for any messages you find unread and those that need responses, simply create message drafts which will be sent automatically once you get an internet connection.

3. WhatsApp Bluetooth Messenger

An ideal way to still use WhatsApp without a Wi-Fi internet connection is via WhatsApp Bluetooth Messenger. Its hardly surprising that Bluetooth is the next best thing when you have no internet connection or mobile signal to rely on. WhatsApp Bluetooth Messenger provides chat systems that allow you to send messages to someone within a short range via Bluetooth.
WhatsApp Bluetooth Messenger, is not affiliated in any way to the WhatsApp messaging app, even though it bundles the name. The app is developed by Awesome Developer and not an WhatsApp Inc product. In addition, it does not employ WhatsApp usernames or passwords and it also does not apply same terms and conditions of the official WhatsApp. Aside from all these, the app isn’t available on the Google Play Store, so if the first differences weren’t enough of red flags, this should be: so be careful.

4. Use ChatSim

Technically, ChatSim does work with a Wi-Fi internet connection, just not yours, so it still counts as an alternative. ChatSim is basically a roaming service. So in case you are in an area where your phone can’t access the data signal provided by the network provider, data roaming is extremely expensive or a Wi-Fi connection is unavailable, then ChatSim is exactly what you need.

ChatSim is a global SIM card that is exclusively for chats, that has established a range of deals with a variety of mobile operators in aim to provide MMS and data services. Once the SIM has been set up on your phone, everything is automated; for instance if you are within a range of the data service provided by one of its partners, then your phone will be connected automatically and you have the freedom of WhatsApp-ing to your satisfaction.

ChatSim is available for $10 which offers unlimited texts and chats for an entire year, though you must stay within the average daily traffic limit.

Note that there is literally nothing else you can use ChatSim for, other than chatting. You’ll notice that any non-chat apps will be blocked to ensure that chat apps work smoothly.

Currently, this is most of what you can use if you lack internet connectivity for WhatsApp. However, if you have a different idea, then let us know in the comments section below.
