WeChat is putting old phones to bed.

If you haven't jumped on the WeChat/Weixin bandwagon yet, now would be good time to start. Not only can you get weekly venue and event recommendations from the Beijinger's editors, you can get access to a range of updates from bars, clubs, restaurants and shops around the city. Here's a list of just some of the places around town that are using WeChat:
