The downloads on Nokia Lumia 520 take a fairly long time, even if you have the best internet connection. Hence, stay a little patient and you will be o.k. Also, this sometimes happens due to lack of space. See if your phone memory is full... If it is, then, make some space for your video.

If you are not able to download an application from your Windows phone. Try to switch data connection, like using from phone data to WiFi internet. Make sure you have a good internet connection to avoid lag. You can also power cycle your access point (wireless router) to refresh the connection and download.

How to reinstall WhatsApp on my Nokia Lumia 520?

I deleted WhatsApp from my phone due to some reason and now I want to reinstall it so when I go to the Nokia store market there is no WhatsApp application available on store.....why is it so....???

WhatsApp on the Windows mobile phone platform did not run well and the app itself has been taken off the app store. See screen shot here from the Windows phone store:

http://screencast.com/t/lscIcVcdg5cY

My guess is that the WhatsApp team is working on improving the app for Windows phone users and will be put back up once they have a stable release.

Unable to see WhatsApp on Windows HTC?

Hi I am trying to download WhatsApp on my HTC Windows 8X but it doesn't show in the play store

Yes, this is not an error on your device or network being that Windows has taken this application off of the app store and has stopped the app from being used on devices that have already installed the application.

This was done because there were a lot of reports of bugs and errors with the application on Windows OS devices. As of now Windows has taken the app off in order to fix the errors to be able to place the app back into the app store for use and download by users.

When will WhatsApp be available for Nokia Lumia 1320?

I see WhatsApp has been removed from the istore. I believe there were problems with the app. Please could you let me know more or less when we can get it again. Thanks

Yes, the application was removed from the app store so that Windows could work the app being that it has many bugs for the Windows OS. The app has only been disabled on Windows devices at this time and there has not been a specific time on when the application will once again be back in the app store for download and use.

Windows removed the app over a week ago for repairs and as of now users can do nothing but wait until the process is fixed before they can re download and use the application on their device.

Here is a link on the situation in regards the app being removed:

Downloading WhatsApp application on Nokia 520. Using version windows 8?

I was using WhatsApp app earlier on Nokia 520. Recently, it stopped working. when I try to download, it asks Microsoft account code, which I don't have. It indicates that the account is used by me and I don't receive any code to the email I type. Please suggest a solution. I am seeing a solution as I should create another Microsoft account. But I am not able to do that. When I try to sync present account it throws up 'attention please' phrase. I have tried: Existing WhatsApp application was deleted as updating was not successful. Tried to install the application from the store. And I am not able to do it. I think it was caused by: I think Microsoft account is not synced. I am not able to do it as I forgot the password. Unable to create new one as I don't know

I can't find WhatsApp internal files when connecting my LMI520 via USB cable?

WhatsApp is occupying a huge amount of space in my internal storage, due to the big amount of audio recordings I have. I want to delete them but can't find them when I connect my phone via USB. And when I delete the chat history it doesn't free up space. Thank you for your efforts

Hi, I'm having some problem with my Lumia phone. Here is the big problem?

I have Lumia 520. I made an account with Microsoft and all my apps downloaded with the email address. Lately, I have been trying to enter the password it asks, but for some reason Microsoft keeps asking for the password again and again, seems that I have forgotten the password. Surprisingly it is not even giving any other option to which I can click and install the apps. I don't know what to do. Can you please guide me on what to do?

Am trying to download WhatsApp for my Huawei w1 but it has refused?

Can I get the procedure?

You are performing the procedure correctly so understand that you are not doing anything wrong but the problem is that Windows has taken WhatsApp off of the app store and the ability to download the application to your device.

This error has occurred because the WhatsApp application experienced many errors on Windows devices which has caused Windows to take the app out of the app store completely. This has recently happened for many users of the Windows OS are not understanding why the app is no longer working. I located an article that speaks on the Windows company taking away the application from the app store:
