Re: WhatsApp is available..

More on Whatsapp contacts!  There are a quite a few complaints on the BlackberryWorld review tab about Whatsapp contacts disappearing after a z10 reboot.  This seems to be partly true -- the current BB10 version of Whtasapp seems to want to validate its contact list by repopulating it from scratch after a device restart.  The repopulation process takes about 30 secs and after that my Whatsapp "Favorites" reappear and we are back in business.  I tested our iPhone Whatsapp and this contacts recovery process is not evident after a restart.  I am OK with the BB10 Whatsapp "R1" behaviour for now (it's actually very stable ignoring the gaps!) but there is room for improvement going forward...

Re: WhatsApp is available..

I downloaded WA and it works just fine. The only thing that's not working is that the red led light does not blink and the red star on thw WA icon does not show when sb texts me in WA. Any tips?

Re: WhatsApp is available..

Just tested from iPhone to BB10 and it works OK -- try Settings>Notifications>Other Applications -- Whatsapp should be in the list then you can make your alert choices for WA.

Re: WhatsApp is available..

OK I'll try:

 

Swipe down on the z10 "Home" screen (the one with all the application icons) to expose the main menu -- main has a bunch of selections:smileyfrustrated:ettings, Rotation Lock, Bluetooth etc.  Pick "Settings" to expose the "System Settings" menu, and select the 3rd item in the list "Notifications".  This opens the "Notifications" page -- if you scroll down to the bottom of this page you should see an entry entitled "Other Applications".  Hit "Other Applications" and hopefully you get a whole list of apps starting with Blackberry World -- WhatsApp should be the last item listed.  Click on Whatsapp and you will get a bunch of notiification options exposed  -- on/off for Sound, Vibrate and the LED: then you can set your preferences for WhatsApp!

 

Hope this helps (pictures would be better!)

Re: WhatsApp is available..

Good luck -- maybe it's your wireless provider that's the problem.  No problem here (Canada/Rogers) --- maybe your cell prider's help desk can assist?

Hi,

I read your post that WhatsApp is available for BB Z10.

Sure, it is, but I do not know why I get messege that on my BB Z10 WhatsApp Messenger Unavailable for this device.

 

Even when I try to install it from Blackberry Webstore my BB try to download this application but after few seconds get new message: "A network error has occured while processing your request. Please ensure you have sufficient network coverage and try again"

 

I have got full coverege, maximum signal and active internet access.

 

Don't know what to do. Pls help!
