There isn't a release date but it is coming.

Sideloading won't do any good since the Android version won't pick up the contact list. Tried it already.

Re: WhatsApp for Z10

Yea you can download the android version straight to your phone but it doesn't open.
I got my girlfriend the Z10 unlocked but she needs whatsapp to talk to friends in the uk (we study in the states). To be honest I'm not entirely impressed.
I've read it's being released valentines day but I doubt I'd get any response from blackberry themselves.

Re: WhatsApp for Z10

I have quite a few sideloaded apps. Once youve done it a few times it's pretty easy.

Valentine's Day is only a week away. I hadn't heard that release date but it's something to look forward to. The CEO of BlackBerry said himself it's coming. It will come.

Re: WhatsApp for Z10

Yes. In what? 5 months?! Lol they shouldn't sell a phone on the basis of apps that....aren't in place. Way to go blackberry.

I honestly have no idea where to start with side loading.

I'm sure he wouldn't have said it if it were going to be that long.

Here is a good site for sideloading:

http://apps.goodereader.com/playbook/playbook-android-apps/

One note about sideloading, not every app will work. Goodreader has converted a lot of them but there are some that don't work once in a while.

Don't bother with Skype or Whatsapp...they don't work. They're coming soon...It's a brand new phone give it a little time.

Re: WhatsApp for Z10

Patience with blackberry? Has to be a given. I was part of the 5 day no service black out. That was hell. Lol

Re: WhatsApp for Z10

Then you'll be happy to know that the Z10 no longer requires a BlackBerry data plan so you won't have BlackBerry to blame for service outages unless it's limited to BBM or Protect or some individual service.
