    You can save XMPP account IDs in any mobile address book.

    I'd pretty much just do a video call at that point.

    You don't have to use another client software.

    Equally applies to most messaging apps out there. Some XMPP apps have the benefit of also supporting using Tor and hidden services - Signal/WhatsApp/etc, don't.

    Don't want to use the Internet at all? You can even go wild and do something like: https://github.com/ddamianus/Lora-Chat-Device - I realize this is something most people would not do, but XMPP's _flexibility_ allows this to be an option if it was something people wanted. Can't do Signal over LoRa.
