WhatsApp used to be available for both Windows and Nokia phones which run on OS versions 7.5 and higher which can be easily installed from the WhatsApp website or Nokia Store. However, WhatsApp is currently not available on Windows phone OS but still runs on Android, Blackberry, and iPhone. There could be some updates or maintenance going on with the app that covers Windows phone to better improve their services for its growing clientele.

How to install WhatsApp in Nokia X?

I cannot download WhatsApp.


There was a brief period where Microsoft pulled WhatsApp from the Microsoft Store due to a compatibility issue with the App and Windows 8 Phone. That has since been fixed, and you should no longer have any problems downloading the App for your Nokia X.

If you are still experiencing problems, please visit the WhatsApp site for alternate Nokia downloads. Once there, scroll down to the legacy models, where the S40 Nokia series are listed, and confirm that your model is shown. You should then be able to download and install it.

Install WhatsApp Plus or WhatsApp?

I cannot receive text or call so how to get past verification code?


If you are unable to receive calls or texts, you will not be able to activate WhatsApp. However, you should be able to attempt the SMS verification function. After you do that, wait 5 minutes for the hidden internal timer to count down on the verification code screen, and then you will be able to verify your number through a phone call from WhatsApp. This is the only way to register your device to your number.

Cannot see texts while texting a message?

Why cannot I see my text when I am texting a message. It's all blank, but when I send it I cannot see it, so my question is this normal for WhatsApp plus. Thank you

This is not normal behavior for any version of WhatsApp. You should update to the latest version, or, if you are already running the latest version of WhatsApp, you should delete the App, and download a new one from the Microsoft Store.
