    Looking at alternatives for WhatsApp, searching for most used messengers in Switzerland.

    First link, a representative survey stating that 91 % of Swiss people use this service. The alternative that's stated the most is not available on Windows Phone (Threema). Skype is not a possibility as many people go offline when not using it, for example my girlfriend.

    So now I could just randomly install different messengers and see how many people in my contacts have it too. But that seems a little tedious.

    So I'll just won't uninstall Whatsapp and hope it comes back.
    man that sucks :/ but may I ask ....why is whatsapp so important? cant you use SMS ? im genually interested in finding out why its important

    I can't send pictures per SMS, MMS is very, very expensive. My contract has only 50 free SMS, however it has 1 GB of free data.

    Moments like these make me happy that I have Spotify premium and just don't have to care about any of these issues.
    I can see the benefit but, I don't have unlimited data to stream music :/ that's why offline is the way to go for me

    Actually, you can make your music available offline. But I also have unlimited Spotify data. And it's just damn comfortable to have all the music always synchronized on all devices, and there's also a great web player for Spotify.

    My contract is very cheap. I could upgrade to unlimited messages, but there's no reason to do it as I can send all messages over Whatsapp for the low price :)

    I installed Viber a while ago. About 5 people or so were using it, nobody I regularly have contact with. I'm installing right now just to see if something changed.

    that seems legit but I don't have enough data to stream music for 8 hrs a day also I would have to worry about the coverage issue :/

    huh over here in the US, we have unlimited text( international text also) and talk has become the standard but data is limited :/ . maybe that's why the US posters here don't see the point for whatsapp but the rest of the world does see the need

    I understand it's not for everybody, I don't want to convince you to use it. I'm just explaining why I like it :)

    I have Viber installed now. It's not an alternative, I'll remove it again. There are like 4 contacts using it I would even write, and if I write them I use Whatsapp like with the other 20 contacts I write to regularly.

    For that I don't need the additional battery drain from background tasks...

    You should ask if the i7 model will get the Intel Broadwell chips. :)
    Would he answer something like that? I feel like that might be too sensitive of a topic to the Surface Pro line's development.
