WhatsApp drains battery; what to do?
 
I have set up WhatsApp for our sales team in group chat mode. Seems really cool and intuitive. Unfortunately the apps seems to dislike Nokia phones (tested on E71 and we also have a E72 which I have yet to test). It establishes a resident 3G connection to stay on-line all the time but the battery runs down really fast, about 2-3 times faster than normal.

We plan on phasing out the Nokia phones in the future but in the meantime can anyone offer a solution along the lines of:

1. A way to use WhatsApp on Windows 7 desktop.
2. A way to receive WhatsApp messages in the form of SMS or Email, even if the user is unable to reply to the group.
3. A way to connect with WhatsApp through a programmable API and fetch messages on my own.
4. A way to configure WhatsApp to poll for new messages at intervals (even 10-15 minutes apart) rather than sit on the 3G line all the time.
5. Alternative app with similar ease of use and group chat capability.

Thanks

Just came across this app: "GroupMe also works on any phone that texts"

http://groupme.com/

Apparently, we can install the full version on our iPhone and Android phones and let Nokia users join via SMS gateway. I'll look into it soon.

The battery life depends on repeatedly charging and discharging frequency, so should try to avoid more charge when the battery power, this will shorten the service life of the battery. Mobile phone off time more than 7 days, should first will phone the battery to completely discharge, enough electricity before use

Everything that uses wifi can drain battery fast. I think you have to download an app that can save battery usage.

The battery life depends on the number of repeatedly charging and discharging, so should try to avoid more charge when the battery power, this will shorten the service life of the battery.
