I don't quite get the attraction of these text apps like whatsapp. What's wrong with the standard sms functionality on your phone which you find on every phone in the world instead of having to worry if your friends use the same app as you? Call plans these days come with unlimited text plans, so that can't be the issue.

Skype is a great option. As for why people use WhatsApp?
1) It costs nothing, whereas international SMS is expensive.
2) It is more reliable in many cases than SMS.
3) It works across every device that a user owns. If you have a WP, a Surface, an iPad and a PC, you will get the message on all those devices at once, not just one of them.
