Hi Fazu786


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums


First try a Battery pull restart by removing the battery while your device is Powered On, See if that helps.


Apart from Whatsapp have you recently installed any application ! If you have then try to delete that particular application. OR you have to delete whatsapp from your device which you can download later on.So try to Boot your device on Safe Mode :
