I have failed to download WhatsApp on my Nokia Lumia smartphone?

There are a number of demos but the real application can't be downloaded.

The developer of WhatsApp voluntarily removed the application from the Windows Phone Store to fix bugs. WhatsApp is back on the Windows Phone Store now, though; to find it, open the Windows Phone Store app on your device and search for WhatsApp. You'll be able to download and install it once you find it.

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.

I can't download apps on my Tecno p3?

When downloading or updating apps I am getting an error that says unable to communicate with server. Kindly assist

First, check your connection and make sure that you are connected to WiFi. Then go into settings and clear the cache of the app that you are using to download from such as Google Play. Once done, go back into Settings and Applications to also clear the data. The Tecno should then be able to install properly.

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.

Once you have set up the Family account you need to sync your microsoft account in settings from within your phone. This will update what you just did to set up the account. You also will want to make sure that you verified your age because otherwise it will not download apps until a parent verfies that you have linked to the account.

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.

Its always indicating downloading on the screen?

If I say install, in the home screen it will be written downloading, is this how the phone downloads its applications

Yes, that will appear while the apps are downloading until they are fulling installed and set up properly. It is just like when you are downloading something on your PC and the task window is there.

I am trying to download but it asks for a password?

My phone asks for a password and does not accept it but also does not give me the option to changing it

You can reset your Microsoft password through Live.com. Make sure that your Microsoft Account is running properly and that you are logged into both your Nokia account and Microsoft account, especially if you change the password. Sync your Microsoft account from Settings if you are still experiencing issues.

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.
