How to use WhatsApp without a SIM card

You might want to make use of WhatsApp on your Android tablet, iPad or PC.

These devices normally don’t have a SIM card, however, it doesn’t mean that you cannot make use of your account.

To use Whatsapp without a SIM card you can use an existing landline.

To do so:

  • Open WhatsApp on the device that you’ll be making use of
  • Enter your home phone or landline number
  • Wait for the verification by SMS to indicate that it failed – it should take five minutes
  • After the SMS failure, you can choose the option ‘Call Me’
  • Click it and you should get a phone call on your home phone landline
  • The automated call will tell you a verification code and it will repeat it for six time for you take note of it
  • Enter it in WhatsApp were indicated
  • You’re ready to make calls and send chats

How to set up WhatsApp with a VOIP number

A VOIP is a voice over internet protocol that uses an internet connection to make and receive calls instead of an international landline.

You don’t need a phone number to contact someone, you simply need an internet connection.

This is mostly used by businesses, as they’ll have many calls going out and coming in from international numbers and so it might be easier to use a VOIP rather than a landline.

Before setting up WhatsApp, you will need to purchase a VOIP phone system and you can do so from tech shops such as Currys and Argos.

Now you’re ready to set up WhatsApp and with the VOIP, you can even download WhatsApp Business.

To do so:

  • Open WhatsApp on the device you’ll be using it
  • Enter the VOIP you’ll be using
  • Choose to receive a call rather than SMS
  • The call will give you a verification code to enter
  • You’re ready to use WhatsApp once verified
