Questions and Answers

Lumia 535 Microsoft, I can get my contact into WhatsApp?

I can see my friends contact in WhatsApp. I have 740 contacts all on WhatsApp on my phone but only 10 appears at WhatsApp, please help me. I just bought the phone yesterday and I need to WhatsApp some friends. I exported the contact from my SD card to the phone and I can find the contact there but in WhatsApp no, I don't understand it, I have tried all I can to get it but no solution. I have tried: I have tried all that you have published on this site. I think it was caused by: I cannot tell

That means that only 10 people have installed WhatsApp on their phones. They can own a phone number, but they may have no WhatsApp account: that is why you see only a few people.

To invite more people, tap on "All" and select the contact you wish to invite to WhatsApp. Tap "More" and then tap "invite to WhatsApp".

WhatsApp contacts no longer display names only numbers, why?

My Microsoft Lumia 535 no longer displays any of my contacts in the people app on the device and as a result all the contacts displayed in my what sap contact list just show as numbers and no contact name I have tried re syncing my email account but that doesn't bring my contacts list back to the people app on the device. I can no longer search for a contact to phone them or text them as a result of this I have to find out the number and dial it or if I already know it I can then dial it to call or text it. This is ridiculous. I don't understand why the contacts seem to have just disappeared? Please help.. I have tried: Re syncing my email account. Turning phone off and on again. Tried deleting my email account so that I could re add it and re sync the account but there is no option to delete the account once you have added it unless you reset the device. I think it was caused by: Windows Software update

Hi! I don't have the 'All' in my WhatsApp on my Lumia 535?

Trying to add a contact (who is already in my contacts on the phone) to WhatsApp but it does not work, since I am not seeing what is described in the video. It is not synced correctly and how do I do that? I can chat with others without a problem. Thanks. See before. Don't have the 'All' option, what to do? I have tried: Added the person again to my contacts; typed in the number, but since the contact does not show up that didn't worked. I think it was caused by: Guess that WhatsApp is not linked/synced with my contact list; I did refresh my favorites after I added my friend again - did not work
