I was user for many years. IDK why it says freemium here, because it is free to use! only have some extra emoticons which are paid. I never had problem using, like stability, lost messages or unsent. I rather use line than whatsapp. The way you add contacts is different. it doesnt nosy your phone book. and it have protection for add strangers for underage users.

The most used messenging app in Japan, more than Facebook/email/SMS and other apps.

Despite that, it has many bugs, especially the desktop app.

If you have a MVNO carrier, you are out of luck, some features will not work.
