ToS of WhatsApp @ http://www.whatsapp.com/legal/ reads:
"WhatsApp may periodically access your contact list and/or address
book on your mobile device to find and keep track of mobile phone
numbers of other users of the Service. When providing your mobile
phone number, you must provide accurate and complete information. You
hereby give your express consent to WhatsApp to access your contact
list and/or address book for mobile phone numbers in order to provide
and use the Service."
that means that they access your address book to offer their service,
which is generally a bad thing, having a service that looks for your
address book. but they need their numbers to run a instant-messaging
system in that you see who is available, who not and so on.

An it reads on:
"We do not collect names, addresses or email addresses, just mobile
phone numbers."
And that is true - I am trying it on my own now and you just need any
generic username and your phone number. no more data for registration.
I think this is a good thing.
