As you may have noticed if you tried to install the Whatsapp Messenger on your Sony device that it prompts an error message saying “Tablets are currently not supported”. So you have guessed it right, Whatsapp it’s not compatible with your Sony device.
In order to register with the Whatsapp service, it sends you an SMS authentication code to the mobile number of your device you’re installing it on. Unless you’re using a tablet with a 3G Card, you probably haven’t got a number associated with it, so that’s why Whatsapp doesn’t work.
Instead, you can install Pinger, a text-free and free-calling app available for free in the Google Play Store.
Below you can find a few specifications about this application, that will work on your Sony tablet device.

Your friends don’t need Pinger to receive — they don’t even need to have a smartphone.
