Can anyone WhatsApp call you?????

So I just got a WhatsApp call from a number I don't recognise :s-smilie: It's freaked me out, I thought you could only call people on your contact list, this number isn't on my contact list, in fact I have never seen it before....


I have a picture of The Weeknd up and not my face, so I'm not terrified, but it creeped me out. I didn't answer because I got freaked out. :redface:

I've only got one spam text message, never been called out of the blue. Very weird to say the least.

Why not answer? Yeah sure it might be Anthony Hopkins, it might be someone you know (or want to know)

Mainly because I almost never use the thing as I have to avoid microwave radiation exposure as it makes me ill :colonhash:


You never use whatsapp? It's the greatest way to keep in touch with people anywhere in the world,apart from texting,how else do you keep in touch with your friends?

Yes they can if they have your number saved in their phone book. You might not necessarily have their number inside your phone book

Rarely, and when I do I usually leave my phone in another room and use Whatsapp Web via a hardwired connection to my laptop :yy:

It's really not, when you consider the harm that the technology that supports it is doing to every living organism that comes within range :naughty:

..and especailly not for those of us who are electro-sensitive :sad:


Are you a recluse?! I use whatsapp way too much.
