Nobody I know uses Whatsapp. One of my friends used to have it on their iPhone but they switched to Android and didn't bother to reinstall it.
For my friends that don't have a BlackBerry I just add them into BBM as a Text Contact.

Your comment about leaving one platform for another shouldn't cause fear unless you've been a Ford owner all your life and made a deal on a new Hyundai don't fear change, embrace it and see where it will take you!! I've owner Pontiac, Chevy, Simca, Ford, Dodge, Honda, Mazda, Volvo, Volkswagon, and Toyota, over the past 47 years, some were better than others however they all provided transportation and usually got me from a to b and the various tablets will do likewise. Like automobiles they will get better as time goes by.
I'll tell you fear, I've just bought a Playbook for my 7 year old daughter for Christmas and I'm afraid she'll have it figured out before I can get it set up and running. I took her into Future Shop last weekend and she started up a PB on display and had a blast with multiple pages open and different aps engaged. Hopefully she'll lite somewhere for more than 60 seconds and enjoy many different experiences within the Tablet operations.
I have seen the parental control aps listed, can anyone recomment one over another?

I sent an email to What'sApp Support asking why the battery drain would be so great with their app, and the reply I got was a link to a FAQ on their website--but with a direct extension on the thread addressing some issues with 7.1. They suggested I delete the app completely from my device/appWorld and then reinstall the newest version (that is actually dated 2010 but must have had the updates put in it- as it says its for the 7.1 OS) via AppWorld!! The second suggestion was/is to be aware of when someone texts you on it, and to make sure and answer it if possible, and then hit "close" and then on the menu hit "exit" which completely closes the program down so it doesn't continue to run in the back ground.
So, I did it as directed--deleted the old app (wasn't that old) and cleared it from AppWorld. Then I did a reboot battery pull and reinstalled it/restart. I gave it the permissions it asked for and up it came, showing past text messages that were held in their cloud I'm sure. I then hit "close" but not exit and sure enough, even though it appeared to be closed, it was not and was running in the background. So I then opened it back up, hit "close" and then hit the menu again and hit "exit" and that closed it completely. Bottom line is that the battery drain is now normal and no discharge due to What'sApp. Hope this helps someone else on here as well. Thanks!
