Carriers might be threatening to block WhatsApp calls; check this out


In a document translated by WMPoweruser, it seems mobile network operators have threatened/are threatening to block the WhatsApp calling feature. On the other hand, it also seems WhatsApp wants to detect this and warn it’s users. Below are some of the translated strings gotten from Windows Phone version of WhatsApp:
  • Couldn’t place call because your phone’s cellular network prevents WhatsApp calls. Try connecting to Wi-Fi and call again.
  • Couldn’t place call because your phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network that prevents WhatsApp calls. Connect to a different network or turn Wi-Fi off.
  • Your mobile carrier doesn’t support WhatsApp calls. Try switching to another mobile carrier or connect to Wi-Fi.
  • Your Wi-Fi network doesn’t support WhatsApp calls. Try switching to another Wi-Fi network or turn off Wi-Fi and use your mobile data connection.
  • {0}’s mobile carrier or Wi-Fi network doesn’t support WhatsApp calls.
This battle between WhatsApp and mobile network operators can only get uglier. With the heavy adoption rates, the IM service is replacing SMS, and the voice calling feature is cost effective (especially with international calls). Skype ended up partnering with mobile operators to charge users a fee. Let’s see how WhatsApp resolves theirs.
