Make sure that your region/country is in sync with the language. For example, if you are in the US, you choose Region/Country: United States Language: English (US). For some reason, regardless of resetting the phone or having the correct country/language, the issue remains the same (some gets it fixed on theirs, some don't). This has already been reported but they have not given a definite date as to when the issue will be fixed.

Since your Nokia Lumia 520 is a Windows Phone 8, you should be able to download and install WhatsApp on it through the marketplace or through this link:

http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/whatsapp/218a0ebb-1585-4c7e-a9ec-054cf4569a79

If you are not able to download it, try to do these on your device.

Restart your device. This will clear your phone's RAM in case your RAM is all used up and running low preventing you from installing more applications and games.

Check the memory of your device and delete applications and games that are not so useful.

Download only from trusted websites.

If after checking on these and you cannot install WhatsApp, backup files on your cellphone and try to perform a Factory Reset.

I cannot download WhatsApp for my Lumia 720 Windows phone?

After uninstalling I cannot reinstall it

There is simply one reason why you are not able to download the app and that is because Windows has removed the application from the app store. The reason they pulled the app from the store and devices is so that they can fix the bugs that are occurring on the device.

They have not given a specific time limit on how long it is going to take but they have said that once it is fixed they will return the app back to be used on Windows devices:

I cannot download WhatsApp. My phone is a HTC with Android?

I've used WhatsApp for almost a year and a half. I had to download it again before because I've got a warning message saying it had expired. I let a couple of days pass and I could download it again. This time I kept on getting messages to update to latest version but when I tried to do it, it would fail with error message "lack of memory". Now it stopped working with 21 Jan expiry date. But when I try to download it from market place, it keeps on failing for lack of memory. My available memory is 1.84GB in SD card, and 55.01MB Internal phone storage. Thanks.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

It is. indeed, a lack of memory. Android uses its internal memory first for downloading, extracting, and installing software. To clean your phone, uninstall unnecessary applications. Then, in applications, go to "Settings", and then go to "Application manager". Tap each application and tap "Move to SD card" and "Clear Cache" if they are available. These should clear some space for WhatsApp.

Problem related to application?

Hello. I downloaded the application and it was successfully downloaded, but when I try to open it , it gives a problem with app. What needs to be done?

If there is an error code associated with the error, then the reason for the application not working will be more evident. However, if there is no error code at all, then it might be the application itself being nonresponsive. Try to update your phone too by checking our article on how to update your Lumia. Then, uninstall the application. Reboot the phone. Reinstall the application.
