What's App & The Contact List

Just a heads up to all of you!<br>I had What's App installed and decided to delete it because I didn't really use it, but when deleting I lost my contact list with it! Of course I had a back up with BlackBerry Protect. So I thought, let's back it up, reinstall What's App and see if it happens again, and of course it did.<br><br>So all of you, make a back up if you plan to uninstall What's App from your devices!<br><br>Cheers!

Re: What's App & The Contact List

Thanks for the warning.


I recently uninstalled WhatsApp as well, but I didn't lose any contacts for Address Book. Perhaps we're on different versions or something.

Re: What's App & The Contact List

Might be. Might be something else too. But it happent twice to me.

Doesn't matter though, just make a back up before deleting and it should be good.
