Yes we love Whatsapp, don’t we?

 

whatsapp messenger

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.

Disclaimer: This is a user-created fix for whatsapp, and not the manufacturer-designed way to install this application, so please we do not take responsibility for any damage you may cause your device in the process of using this guide (So far there has been non though, so do not panic :D)

Required:

  • A Dual SIM Nokia phone (also works on any Nokia phone)
  • An Internet connection (you already have this anyway)

Wait!!!

Before you begin, visit http://store.ovi.com/content/172049 or http://store.ovi.com/content/62616 on your browser to see if you can download it directly. If  it fails, proceed to the next steps.

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.

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..

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.....

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.


(Note: There's one tiny little glitch - it warns me everytime that my dumb X2-02 phone is unsupported, but I just have to press OK. It still works, so that's still awesome.)

@schivmeister Thanks very much. I've not thought about porting this method to Viber or Line or other chat messengers, but I'll surely check that out.

is it works for nokia c2 03?

That's great! Glad to be of help

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

Did you upgrade it? Are you on a 3G/WiFi connection? These are the most likely issues that may result in this abnormality
