    Welcome to WhatsApp.
    The cross-platform mobile messaging with friends all over the world - fantastic! We can look at the Terms of Service if you are really interested in that. However, what the Terms of Service say if you don't accept them, you can't use the application. We are going to go ahead and continue - agree and continue.

    Now, at the moment I am in Tbilisi, the Georgian Republic - that's on the other side of the world.
    Got to love the vacation run. So we are going to enter the phone number here - that's 555-377-896. There we go, now everybody can add me on WhatsApp. Just be advised that if I don't know you, probably I'm going to block you. We click on OK. It's going to connect and might take a minute or two.
