Re: Applications suddenly disconnecting

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

From what I understand, WhatsApp requires BIS to be active in order to function. Hence, what you describe is expected behavior. However, the bit about your BIS service dropping out while on WiFi would not be normally expected...unless there is something about that connection that is dropping the connectivity to the BIS service. But you'd need to dig into your WiFi router and Internet connection to determine if perhaps there is something there that is causing the drop.

Good luck!
