How To Use WhatsApp Without A SIM Card On Android

Have you ever imagined being able to use WhatsApp without a SIM card in a device that could be an iPhone, Android or Windows Phone? In this post, we are going to learn how to do and how it works.

You can have multiple WhatsApp accounts on different devices but only have one valid mobile number and SIM Card, then? Well, for those interested, here’s how you can create and use a WhatsApp account on Android devices without having to have an active SIM card in the device.

There are several proven ways where you can use WhatsApp without a SIM card. Some of those ways are difficult and cumbersome to execute so we are going to walk through one perfect method using a third-party app called TextNow, which is available to download for free from Google Play itself.

Step 1: All you have to do in the first instance is, make sure you have WhatsApp and the downloaded TextNow app installed on your Android device. Launch TextNow and go through the process of obtaining your free-of-charge virtual mobile number. This will include adding a few details such as an area code in the first place. Make a note of that number as it offers free calls and texts via that provided number.

Step 2: Now, create a WhatsApp account and provide the free-of-charge number from above as the mobile number for your new WhatsApp account.

Step 3: Waiting is required and once you get a verification call from WhatsApp to the TextNow app, you will have to pick up that call as it will provide you with a verification code.

Step 4: Make a note of the code provided and use it in the WhatsApp account for account verification.

Step 5: Congratulations! You are now inside of an active WhatsApp account without actually having to have a valid SIM card in the device.

This method is, however, not definitely the most efficient way to use the WhatsApp service, but is definitely not the official way altogether. If you do have a valid use case whereby you would want to use the official WhatsApp service without having a SIM card in your device then this modification is a most pain-free solution and trouble-free ways of actually achieving that. The reliance on a third-party application isn’t exactly good but it’s definitely worthwhile that cannot be avoided in this case.

Good luck and remember to be aware that you couldn’t have your account banned/closed if the Facebook-owned company did detect that you weren’t using a valid number.
