    To get started, turn the phone on by pressing the power button on the right-hand side of the phone.
    This will bring up the lock screen.

    In the bottom right-hand corner of the lock screen, we can see our notifications.
    There are currently notifications for the Outlook email service and Viber, and they both have the number 1 beside them. These are notifications that we have added to our lock screen and they tell us how many there are. We can choose to add the WhatsApp application notifications to the home screen as well.

    In the Notification Panel, we can press "ALL SETTINGS" in the top right-hand corner, next to the white cog.
    This is the quick and easy way to go to the settings menu. We will need to be in the "system" section of the settings.

    Now we need to scroll down until we see 5 white squares.
    It says, "Choose apps to show quick status". We can only have 5, which is quite limited if we have a lot of applications that we use. We can see it has the Outlook icon in the square on the right, and the Viber logo to the square left of that. We can press down on any of these to change them and also add a new one if we see a white plus symbol.

    Here, we have a list of all of our applications and we can press "WhatsApp" to add their notifications to our home screen.
    We obviously need to have WhatsApp installed and have the correct settings set up in WhatsApp to allow it to send us notifications.
