      This App is becoming more and more popular, even here in Colombia.

      I recently got WhatsApp on my iphone, so that I can chat with my son and daughter while I'm in Colombia. I use it only at home on the wifi connection and have turned off the roaming features of my phone, so that my U.S. phone bill doesn't get charged for any hidden roaming fees. It's basically like having a small computer with messaging capability even though the phone line is not being used.
