[ Edited ]

Hey hi. I have bought my bb torch 9800 to the USA now from India, the what'sapp messenger was working until I had the old SIM card inside, through wifi but as soon as I've put a new AT&T SIM card the whatsapp has stopped working through wifi. I need help ASAP. I really need to be in touch with my close ones on what's app. Thanks..

Does your new AT&T SIM card include the BIS BlackBerry Data Plan?


If I recall correctly, WhatsApp requires the data plan, and won't work over Wifi only.

Re: be in touch with my close ones on what's app

usually when you launch WhatsApp forthe first time, it registers your device and phone number. You are supposed to type in your mobile phone number, then you receive an SMS that is swallowed by the WhatsApp application.

can your phone receive SMS?
