You will need to use Internet connection on your phone for the program to operate.

  • Depending on whether your phone is run on Android or iOS, you will need to access Play Store or App Store respectively to download WhatsApp.
  • Then, you will need the Internet connection to receive or send messages. For this to work, you need to ensure first that your carrier has enabled a mobile data plan for you. The plan must have traffic available for you. Then, tap on "Start", swipe left to the application list, tap on "Settings" and "Cellular". Enable "Data connection".
  • You need to be in the Internet coverage so that (2G/3G/LTE) reaches the place where you are trying to connect to the Internet.
  • Alternatively, connect to a WiFi network from your phone. To do that, either sign up to an Internet Service provider plan with a WiFi router or join a public WiFi network, which is available only at certain places like cafes. To get on a WiFi network, tap on "Start", swipe left to the application list, tap on "Settings". Enable "WiFi" and select a network to which you want to connect.

I want to download WhatsApp in my Windows live phone but it is telling me to sign in with a Windows live account. I have tried to sign in but still failing.

How can I create the Windows live account

Since you have a Windows phone, you Windows Live Account would be whatever email you set up on the device to activate it. If you can't sign in and are using the correct details then access the Microsoft email on the PC and see if you have triggered 2 Step Verification. This would prevent you from signing in. A new account also needs to go through a verification process. Logging in on the PC will be able to tell you if you need to complete that. Beyond these tips, contact Microsoft directly through their Support Module.

Go to the App Store Settings. Disable the feature for only downloading apps over WiFi. Then delete your recent attempt to download WhatsApp and begin again. Really to install WhatsApp, it works best to perform the installation over WiFi. If you do not have access to WiFi where you live, then access a free WiFi hotspot at a cafe or library.

There used to be a way with a third party app but Windows and WhatsApp have since closed those platforms. The only way around it is to get WhatsApp for Windows 10 on your PC as one account and then on your phone for the other account.

You need stable WiFi for WhatsApp to download. The only other way is to get the app online on your PC and download it to the phone's SD card via a card reader or an SD slot on your PC. That method is tricky though as sometimes WhatsApp will not work loaded onto the SD card.
