I have tried to update my phone via that method and it updated to 10.0.9 Bundle 348. But after I rebooted my phone, it still says that my version is 10.0.9.2372. Are these versions the same??

Anyway. How can I force my phone to download the latest OS Version compatible with Whatsapp??

Those are the very same versions... 10.0.09.2372 = 10.0.9.348

You can also try the Link update then, as well.

 

Connect to the PC > and run Link.

Click on the settings tab at the top.

Below that, you can then click on Reload Device Software, if there is an update, the update will be loaded.

If not, you will end up with the same OS.

Re: OS update and whatsapp

What do you mean by "if there is an update"? There is definitely an update! The question is : how can we get that update to install on a phone which is simlocked to a carrier which did not do its job to validate the update!

Thanks,

Olivier

Call Orange France. They release the OS when they are ready.

Not posssible that I know of. Perhaps you should get a SIM card swap instead.

 

What is wrong with your SIM card?

Re: OS update and whatsapp

It appears that WhatsApp is now available for Verizon devices on (today's) OS 10.0.9.2743.

 

The WhatsApp description still states only for devices of OS 10.0.10.82 and higher, but I have confirmed on mine it has installed and is working.
