    Because you have led then 10 posts in 4 years and generally people who are asking for calls are scams (not saying you are)

    Someone that has been signed up for more then 5 years is less likely to be a scammer then someone who signed up a week ago.
    OP, I unfortunately won't help you, international calling and I like to keep atleast me phone number private cause of reasons and what not.
    Good luck on enabling whatsapp calling tho.

    the call goes over the internet so i costs nothing. i only want the call because nobody i know has whatsapp calls and you need do be called over it to activate it.

    yes tried it and you can see the call symbol but every called gets canceled immediately because you need a call from a legit user to activate it

    If nobody you know uses Whatsapp then... why do you need to use the calls feature?

    Additionally... Whatsapp has a voice calls feature?!

    So it's an invite-only system at the moment?

    whatsapp sucks
    use WeChat

    I know I am not helping at all. If GBAtemp had a "dislike" post, I would be getting tons of that

    It's like facebook, it sucks hard but because everyone else uses it you are basically forced to use it as well.
    I have tried to make my android using friends to default hangout as text message app so I could easily reply from computer and it would automatically use it for free instead of charging SMS. However last time I checked it was only possible to do video calls, not regular ones. WhatsApp seems to have browser version, but it works by connecting to phone and sometimes simply drops the connection without any reason or may take up to minute from receiving message to show up on computer.

    This is the reason why my phone is always running Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Skype, Steam, Playstation App and Hangouts, also when needed Teamspeak and IRC. Even with all of those I still get regular text messages and phone calls. Luckily even the skype doesn't drain battery nowdays and nexus battery life is amazing.
    That WeChat does look really good, but again, haven't heard about that one before so changes are nobody I know uses that.
