In cannot download WhatsApp on my HTC?

They ask me to crate a microsoft account


ON your HTC device singing into a Microsoft account will not be necessary for the download, you can simply visit the Google Play Store in order to download the application to your device without having to have a Microsoft account. This sounds like the log in information for a Windows based device, if this is then yes you will need to log in with your mail account in order to use the application.

How can I get my WhatsApp account?

My lumia520 get formatted , now how how can I get my old WhatsApp account with full back up


You can only reinstall your WhatsApp account on your newly formatted lumia520, but you won't be able to retrieve all previous messages. It would be the same WhatsApp account, especially if you are registering the same number, and your contact remains intact as saved on your phone. However, you are basically starting from zero, which means that you will only begin having chat histories as soon as you begin making conversations with your contacts after you have reinstalled WhatsApp.

Has UAE service provider has banned WhatsApp software as it can not be downloaded?

I can not download WhatsApp in Lumia 920 and 520

It is not more likely because of your service provider but more likely because of the device you are using. It may not be compatible.

However, you should also check the policies in UAE as there are indeed some Muslim or communist countries that regulate these medium of communication.

Windows has taken the application off of the Windows App Store and also has stopped it from working on the devices even if they are already downloaded. In addition the Windows developers have not stated how long this will take in order for the app to be fixed.
