I just got a SmartPhone so I could chat with my Latin American friends on WhatsApp, but I can't figure out how to use it! Help!

Hero, what type of Smartphone do you have? I have used WhatsApp with a Latin girl who I talk too. She had the app and invited me when sent an invitation to my local phone number. The only issues with whatsapp is usually the receiver (the user). I mean that the Latin woman I talked too, would receive her messages later (which unfortunately is true). However, I think it was not that she received them later, she did not set up notifications and did not realize messages came in earlier.

If you have an Android Smartphone, download the app and ask the Latin women you want to speak too to send you an invitation and you can add her to your list.

This works for the iPhone and Windows Phone too. I am sure other members can help too.

Here is a link to the FAQ:

If you have an Android phone then put contacts in your GMail contacts list and they should pop up in Whatsapp.

Incidentally, LINE is better for chatting to girls, but I don't know if it's just an Asian thing. The genius think about LINE are the stickers which allow you to express your feelings even if you can't write a word of her language.

I do like Whatsapp for staying in touch with home though.

Come on, even airhead teenagers can figure out WhatsApp. To attach photos, look for a plus sign or a paper clip sign. Just push every button you see and see what it does. That's the only way to learn.

Connect your phone to computer via usb->mini usb(or whatever custom port your phone has) cable. An alert box should appear on your screen with different options such as view folder, photo, music e.t.c You just drag and drop the images in your image folder that resides on your phone's memory. Your phone memory looks like a different hard drive on computer. Another option is to upload the images to google drive, instagram or any other photo sharing website from your computer and them accessing them from your phone.
