Now that you are hooked to your WhatsApp, what will you do if we said that you may no longer get access to it? That Whatsapp will stop working for you?
Ranting and raving won't help. It would be better if you checked the device you are packing and also see its operating system. It does not matter whether it is Android or iPhone, WhatsApp does not discriminate and pushes everyone who does not meet its stringent policy out of the door. Sad, but true. Quite Darwinian, actually.
