Will VOIP/CHAT apps (eg Skype/Viber/Whatsapp) work without network data connection?
Hi, I'm wondering if Skype, Viber, Whatsapp etc will work if there is no contract with a mobile service provider (eg if I'm on Vodafone or 02 and I cancel the contract or put the contract on hold) and use Wifi to connect to the internet for these apps on my iphone. In theory it should work because whatsapp etc work on airplane mode but I wanted to double check... i'm travelling for a month and thinking of putting a vacation hold on my mobile contracts. Please let me know thanks!

Viber can work without a sim card, you just need an active phone number for the registration process (you can use your home number for that). If you already have Viber, taking your sim card out won't deactivate it, Viber will continue functioning properly.
