For every new Registration, WhatsApp offers 1-year Free Trial period. After that, you have to pay WhatsApp 0.99$/year to renew your Account.

    Can I get free whatsapp again even if my whatsapp expired last year december? I don’t think people will need this trick. WhatsApp always gives free extensions to it’s user. I just got a free one year extension. A friend of mine got 3 free extensions!

      Save money? Seriously?? It’s $0.99 man c’mon… do you realize it’s just two coffees and something like 6 sms (in a year)? do you know how much money and time Whatsppp developers pour into running its messaging infrastructure that make it worth more than $0.99? This is not a biased point of view and not endorsed by Whatsapp, and you might be surprised I’m a direct competitor of Whatsapp. But other than that I paid two years already. Think about it please.

  3. Sahar says:

    I did delete my account by my number, but after I registered again yet it still shows me my last expired date which it means I will not be able to avoid the payment. I want to get another free year trail and I can’t pay it by those methods..please help me…what should I do?

    • if your WhatsApp account is gonna get expired, you can move on deleting your WhatsApp Account from your WhatsApp Account settings. Later, with the same mobile no. you can create a new account with new details and get back the free subscription. It worked well for my friend.

  6. W says:

    No it doesn’t work. I only started using Whatsapp past 2 months so I have 10 months left. Tried this method on Android 4.4.4 phone and clean/remove Whatsapp folder yet when reinstall again it shows my 10 months left.

  7. DJ says:

    Its not tested, but should work, as Whatsapp recognises u with ur mo. number.
    Most of them have 2 SIMs, would suggest to delete the account, take care you have deleted the account with ur number and deinstall the app
    Change the SIM card, install the app. (Remember if it finds ur old account, it was not successfully deleted) give the new number (which will be verified). After verification change the SIM and then in settings, change the number again.
    Of-course u will need data plan on the other number, but only for a while.
    Those having 2 SIMs and abt to expire the WA account, can test and share

    By this trick you can get 1 year more free service of whatsapp. Use this trick after the expiry of your account.

    For this trick, we need two sim cards. One which you wants to extend and one which you never used in whatsapp.
    1. Go to settings/applications/whatsapp and click clear data.
    2. Now open whatsapp and create whatsapp account on new sim card.
    3. After setting up new whatsapp account, follow this path setting(of whatsapp)/account/change number.
    4. Change the number to your previous whatsapp number.

    By this trick you can get 1 year more trail period but you can’t get you chat history back.
    This trick is for those who don’t want to change their number and also don’t want to pay money.
