Could someone please confirm this? I am worried about part
really? why should people confirm that for you? Fongo is free. Just buy for one month package for $2-3 and check. Confirmation Problem solved.

No. They just paid for SMS. If you pay, SMS verification codes work for whatsapp with Fongo Mobile.

If you don't pay, they won't work.
Please do not PM me for assistance unless it's to reply to a PM I sent. I try to help when I can on the forums. Thank you. OBi200/202 Freephoneline setup guide can be found here (v. 1.51x). Related OBi200 discussion can be found here. For OBi202, click here.

FONGO by SMS (it used to be by calls only before, but something has changed with WhatsApp allowing SMS verification to work for FONGO
Possibly Whatsapp stopped using short codes for verification.
Regardless, it's worked with Fongo Mobile for a year, provided you pay for SMS. Otherwise, Fongo Mobile blocks the incoming verification code for whatsapp.

I have a voip.ms number that's tied to WhatApp.
But it was confirmed like a year ago. No idea what's changed since then.

This is correct.
Whatsapp uses a 10 digit # to send out verification and it's arrived on virtually #s I've tested with FONGO and Nextplus.
I have yet to try TextNow (it didn't work before -- like an year ago).

Older thread but i'll update it anyway.

As of June 19, 2017 whatsapp will not send a verification code to a voip.ms number. The whatsapp app even says something like "Cannot send verification code to that number". But clicking the call me link right under it successfully called my voip.ms number and i got my code that way. no hassle.

I do not see the rationale of doing this.
If user does not pay (say use) the #, it will be reassigned to somebody else who may use that # for Whatsapp registration. I have a friend using a Far East # for Whatsapp like this. One day another fellow just took over his whatsapp account

My post was intended for people that have moved over to a 100% voip cellphone. Our only number is our voip.ms number. we just have issues with the whatsapp verification process due to most voip providers not properly receiving short code SMS or validation SMS messages.

VOIP numbers doesn't work for whatsapp verification and it doesn't give you call me option as well. I was testing it last week with Texnow number and didn't work.
Number has to attached with working SIM card so, either you can receive the text or call.

This is exactly why i posted my comment. I've followed discussions in the past where fongo/voip.ms/other_voip people gave conflicting opinions on wether or not they could get the validation text or validation call to work. I just did this today so i thought i'd share specific information about VOIP.MS.

I downloaded whatsapp on android. I entered my voip.ms phone number for the validation code. it said it could not send the validation code. So i pressed the validation "call me". It rang my voip.ms number, i answered, i got the code, i typed it in.

Kudos to u. A lot of guys will take this route if they want to save some money in ditching a carrier SIM.
I and my family nonetheless are addicted to the Fido plan I recently got ($20 zone free call+100 SMS).
Now data unlike voice call is king anyway

Just activated my WhatsApp using my Voip.ms number. The SMS didnt go through when I had the country set to Canada (I have a 514 number) but when I changed it to US it worked. I got my SMS immediately with the code and activated the account.
