If you hard reset your Lumia 520, you can set up a new Microsoft account. Try syncing your phone. Go to Settings then email+accounts, tap and hold Microsoft (Windows Live) account and select Sync. If this does not correct your update issue then cancel the upload and sync again. Then retry the update.

Check the verification of age area for the Microsoft Family Setup. If you are under the age of 16 in the age verification then you will not be able to install any apps restricted to that. Also if you are under the age of 18, it may have connected to your parent's account and is waiting for them to set up permissions.

Are you signed into both your Nokia and Microsoft accounts? Make sure you are and then attempt to install again. You will also want to Sync your Microsoft Account if you are signed in and it is still not downloading. Make sure that your date and time are also properly set.

Hi, my mobile is Lumia 540, so I can not download WhatsApp. Its showing me, need WiFi while I have activated 3G internet?

Can not download WhatsApp for Lumia 540

Connect to WiFi if the phone is telling you to. You will want to do this anyway because sometimes WhatsApp can take over one hour to install via data instead of WiFi.

I need to first delete an old Microsoft account, how can I do this to proceed and download WhatsApp. When I try to download WhatsApp the old email pop up, unfortunately I don't have a password?

Use the link in the answer right above you for Live.com. You can recover your password from this so that perhaps that is the password you used for WhatsApp. Otherwise, contact WhatsApp Zendesk and they will send you a new password to WhatsApp with instructions on how to enable it for the app.

My Nokia 540 shows an update but I don't know whether it gets an update or not?

My Nokia 540 shows an update but I don't know whether it gets an update or not. I have tried: Everything. I think it was caused by: I Don't Know

You go into Settings and then Phone Update. Tap Check for Updates and if any appear then you do not have the latest Update yet. To install, make sure you are connected to WiFi and that there is enough storage in your device. Updates can take up to a couple hours so make sure that you do not need your phone for the next few hours just in case.
