Whatsapp Contact in Z10 is not working properly

Hi sir/mdm


I am using iPhone 5 and Z10, on my Z10, I notice that I have to wait for at least 15 sec before I can read my message, another problem is that many of my whatsapp contact found in iPhone is missing in Z10 whatsapp contacts. But all this people contacts is in my Z10 main contact list.


Can help to advice me on this?


Thank you

Re: Whatsapp Contact in Z10 is not working properly

Have you contacted the WhatsApp developer for support?


Where are you contacts for the Z10 coming from, have you synced them all from the source?

WhatsApp sources its contacts' phone numbers from your Address Book.

Re: Whatsapp Contact in Z10 is not working properly

The whatsapp has been rushed onto the Z10 and is yet to be a polished version. The main problems are the long startup time from the HUB or the app itself.

Whatsapp also has a problem syncing some contacts that are linked. I work around this by adding the missing contact in the phone book. 

Whatsapp is however very active in releasing the updates optimizing the app and making it better each time. So we hope that these bugs will disappear soon.
