How to use WhatsApp without a SIM card

You may want to use WhatsApp on your Android tablet, iPad or PC.

These devices usually don’t have a SIM card, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use your account.

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

In addition:

  • Open WhatsApp on the device you will be using
  • Enter your home phone or landline number
  • Wait for the SMS verification to say it failed – it should take five minutes
  • After the SMS error, you can choose the “Call me” option
  • Click on that and you should get a call on your landline phone
  • The automatic call will give you a confirmation code and will repeat it six times for you to acknowledge
  • Enter it in WhatsApp
  • You are 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, all you need is an internet connection.

This is mainly used by businesses as they have a lot of incoming and outgoing calls from international numbers and so it may be easier to use a VOIP instead of a landline.

Before setting up WhatsApp, you need to buy a VOIP phone system, and you can do that at tech shops like Currys and Argos.

Now you can set up WhatsApp and even download WhatsApp Business with VOIP.

In addition:

  • Open WhatsApp on the device you will be using
  • Enter the VOIP you will be using
  • Choose whether you want to receive a call instead of an SMS
  • The call will give you a confirmation code to enter
  • After verification, you can use WhatsApp
