Best WhatsApp Only Sim?

I'm looking to set my grandparents up on a phone that works internationally with WhatsApp only. I've heard of Know Roaming and Chat Sim but wanted to see if there are other options out there?

It's going to be used primarily for WhatsApp video and calls. Does anyone have a recommendation?

Thanks in advance!

I googled "global chat sim",

https://www.chatsim.com/personal

Seems like a reasonable cost. However, most people will want more than just chat. What if they need to make a real phone call?

Maybe look on the sticky post in this forum for other ideas.

I'm okay with one that is just for text, but I want one that's a thin SIM, so I can use it with my regular SIM.

That is going to be difficult to suggest you anything. Do you know if they are going to E U, West Europe, Mid East, Far East , Downunder, S Am...?

Thanks for all your replies. I took a look in an old Keep Roaming thread- looks like their service has gone to crap.

I saw a helpful post from @cool canuck to use Keepgo and it looks promising. I don't mind paying a bit more for something reliable, and it seems to be everything required.

No number associated with Keepgo, though, so you'll have to fart around to get a number for Whatsapp.
