Who Pays More For A Whatsapp Call? The Caller Or The Receiver? by Nobody: 8:16am On Oct 19, 2016
I had to ask this question because believe or not, a girl flashed me with whatsapp call. She literally called me and said call me back and hung up. I laughed so hard. I tried explaining to her that both parties were billed at the same bytes per second but she won't believe.

It was funny sha, I go still yab the girl well.

My broda no think am ooo. U'll send some gals airtime and they'll still flash or ask u to call back to thank you. And ironically if u owe her and eventually dash her money, she'll still ask of d money u owe even if d one u dash her na like 50k and wat u owe her na 5k.

Wrong. Both parties are connected via internet so both will be billed. If u think it's just the receiver then u should also be able to make Whatsapp call when u don't have data. It's just like me sending u a file via Whatsapp. I use my data to upload it while u also use ur data to download it.

The question wasn't who pays but who pays more.

I believe the question of "who pays more" depends on the network provider, network strength, and the download/upload rate.....

But why are you all worried about who pays more? I once made a WhatsApp call for about 1hr20mins and only about 20mb was deducted.....

So what's all the fuss about??

3MB per/hour, Minute or seconds?
Re: Who Pays More For A Whatsapp Call? The Caller Or The Receiver? by pinkyruledworld(m): 6:48am On Oct 20, 2016
both parties send and receive data, so both parties are charged. Tho I don't know if they ll b charged at the same rate. For instance whatsapp has the option of setting your call to LOW DATA USAGE which reduces the amount of data u use on call. I may activate mine and the person am calling may deactivate hers, so I guess this willl probably lead to differences in call rate (mb). I dont blame her tho, my mum used to think one party is charged until I told her how DATAFLOWS
