Whatsapp on a tablet data plan

Can I use Whatsapp on a tablet data plan ? I know that even though there is a phone number associated to the sims, phone calls are not allowed or SMS are not allowed (well allowed but at 0.50$ each sent sms I think).

WhatsApp (or Signal) requires a phone number to work. But can i use them with the phone number of my tablet without extra fees other that ma data plan?

SMS on a tablet data plan can incur pay per use charges and generally isn't recommended even if the tablet supports it. A phone number is assigned as part of service provisioning and you might be able to see it on the tablet billing line of your invoice.

I have not seen a native WhatsApp App for iPad. All are secondary apps which seem to require a phone app as well.
