Yes we love Whatsapp, don’t we?

Whatsapp Messenger

As one of the Top Five Messenger applications of 2013 (and the best social app in South Africa), we love to use WhatsApp Messenger to connect to friends and the world.

But there is a challenge. It doesn’t seem to work with these model of phones

Nokia 101, Nokia 110, Nokia C2-06, Nokia 112, Asha 200, Nokia X2-02, Asha 202, Asha 308, Asha 305, Asha 310, Nokia 301. In fact many dual SIM phones in this list don’t seem to work with Whatsapp.

What then is the solution?

Okay, we want a solution. Here goes your solution.

How to Download WhatsApp on Dual SIM Nokia phones – 7 Steps

  1.  Download Whatsapp on Dual SIM Nokia here
  2. Unzip it into your computer and transfer the contents (WhatsApp.jar and Whatsapp.jad) to your phone using a USB cable. If you don’t have a computer to transfer the contents to, learn how to open and extract zip files with BlueFTP
  3. Move the app into your the folder called “My Apps” (or any applications folder in your phone). Be aware though, that this is not the supported version for your phone. We would need to upgrade it!
  4. DO NOT OPEN IT YET!
  5. Navigate to the folder you moved the extracted files and on WhatsApp, select the option key and choose “Update Version”. Allow the application to update. Don’t forget to replace the existing version, and to clear existing user data.
  6. Now run the application and fill in your personal details
  7. Mission accomplished

UPDATE: Now you may not even need a PC to download and install Whatsapp on Dual SIM Nokia phones! With BlueFTP, and this really easy guide, you can now extract the contents of your downloaded file without hassles.

    • This should mean your phone doesn’t have background notification enabled. This is a feature that allows apps remain in the background and returns messages if any. Unfortunately the only way around this is to get a phone with such feature.

      Hope this helps

  13. hi,
    i need help. . . . I tried everything possible to install whatsapp in
    my c2-03 as you mentioned in your Echo blog. My problem occurs when i
    type my number and press ok. A message says. . . . Could not connect
    to server.Error occurred whilst opening.
    Plz help me solving this. I have a working data plan and there’s no
    network problem here. I updated the version twice but the problem
    still continues 🙁

  14. Pure genius. Could you apply the same techniques to the other “smart” messaging apps such as WeChat, Viber and/or LINE? Otherwise, if it’s OK with you, let us/me know how you went about the hack.

  15. Sorry , i got stuck here “Navigate to the folder you moved the extracted files and on WhatsApp, select the option key and choose “Update Version”” how do you mean select options key, is it on my PC or my phone cos i don’t even know where options on my pc is…..

  16. Hi guys..whatsapp on my nokia x2 02 is working fine…thanks to you…. if any of you have problem like-“failed to connect to server whilst opening” or “failed to connect to server:time out “…then once you open the app even though it says the above message just keep on trying again and again..its important…otherwise go to settings> configuration>activate configuration>select any of the sim you want>access point>change to differen access point… and then try whatsapp again..i did this and it worked for me…if you dont have different access points then call customer care and get the new gprs settings and keep on saving all the access points they send..

  23. @kcemenike  I am trying the steps on my Nokia Asha 202. But there are several issues.
    1) When i transfer the files from my laptop to phone via bluetooth the files directly get saved in the apps folder. So, there is no way i can copy it to this location and then delete it from original location
    2) when i am done with the update version for watsapp n the watsapp page opens there is this “updating notifications enabler” after which there is a pop-up message which says ‘ phone not supported.
    3) After I dismiss the above message n enter my phone number the same problem of ‘error in connection’ like many others happens. However, my internet is working fine.

    I tried to delete all files and repeated evrything again and again but the same issues. Plz reply asap. I am very eager to start using watsapp on my fone. Plz.

  24. Hey i downloaded whats app in http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?toolid=10029&campid=CAMPAIGNID&customid=CUSTOMID&catId=15032&type=2&ext=161241112089&item=161241112089asha 202 but its showin setting up failed network conditions couldnt allow contact refresh..?
