    I've been using WhatsApp for the past 2-2.5 years now(because all my friends are on it, I don't have a choice really. The app is horrible on the WP platform rarely updated) a few days back I got a welcome update on WhatsApp and it really brought it in past with the Android version. But today, it just stopped. It's tile went grey on my start screen and it wouldn't open no matter what I tried. So I finally uninstalled it and reinstalled the app. When I opened the app, I restored my account after which it tells me to enjoy my 6 month free trial. Following which it will be .99$/year. Not cool.I didn't have this stupid clause earlier.

    I signed up for Whatsapp about a month ago on WP and it said it's free for the first year but 99p thereafter, I asked my brother in law about this (He has an iPhone and had Whatsapp for a long time) and he said it's been that way for a while but he has never actually been charged.

    I am not that convinced I actually need Whatsapp so it can stay on my phone until they want some money then it will go.

    Depends on where you live, you might not and never get charged. I've been using it since the day of Symbian, and although the installer says 99 cent per year I never actually get charged at all even at prepaid nor postpaid.
