    for iphone ios7 users

    other simple idea r trick is, just turn off ur wifi from control centre(drag up from bottom) keeping ur cellular data on, when wifi is off it connects via mobile operator , wen whatsapp is connected , drag up the control center n switch on wifi, and whatsapp ll b connected.. but do not close the app , u can use it as long as if u keep opened n running behind, u can even lock the phone.. but if u close the app by double clicking the home button n swiping it up n killing it, u have to do the same procedure i mentioned earlier.. just a cheap n easy trick..
