    I am right now in a place in Brazil with very weak wi-fi signals where I often cannot connect to the internet with my iPhone - but can do this with my MacBook. At the same time I need WhatsApp to call some people with Android phones who all the time use WhatsApp for calling people (but never use Skype).

    Is there a way to use WhatsApp on a Mac without having a cell phone in the same network that is connected to the internet?

    Worst case scenario, I believe you can download the android development tools and then run the android simulator/VM and install WhatsApp on it. It's a little overkill, but it should work.

    I don't know if the same thing is possible with the iOS simulator or not.
