How Does WhatsApp Messenger Work?

WhatsApp is more like the popular BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), you communicate with your contacts via instant messaging. The major difference between WhatsApp and BB messenger is that WhatsApp supports multiple platforms, so you do not need to get stock with one brand to use it.

Another major difference is that while BB users share a unique PIN with contacts they want to communicate with them, WhatsApp uses phone numbers instead of PIN. So, you register on WhatsApp with your phone number and other users discover you with it. This approach makes it easier for your friends to discover you.

For example, once you install Whatsapp, you will instantly see all of your current phonebook contacts that have used WhatsApp messenger recently. You can also view their status and when they last used WhatsApp. No need sharing PIN before talking to friends as long as you know their phone number and they have WhatsApp installed.

WhatsApp uses internet for communications, so you need a valid internet plan to use it. Your messages are sent free. WhatsApp Messenger is free for first year, with a yearly fee of $0.99 (just around 160 Naira).

How to get WhatsApp Messenger?

WhatsApp can be downloaded at the app market of the supported phones. You can also download for your supported phone at the WhatsApp website.

So yes, WhatsApp messenger is not only available on smartphones, if you have any of the listed Nokia feature phones based on the Nokia Series 40 platform, you can also install and use WhatsApp.

I’m using a Nokia S40 phone in India, why can’t I use WhatsApp properly?

  2. Go to Settings > Configuration > Default config. settings > Delete the configuration settings.
  3. Reboot your phone.

  2. Go to Settings > Configuration > Default config. settings > Delete the configuration settings.
  3. Reboot your phone.

If you have Idea as your mobile provider, you may be able to successfully use WhatsApp by following these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Configuration > Default Config Settings > Select Idea Internet.
  2. Go back to Configuration and then to Preferred access point > Select Idea Internet.

If this is the case, we recommend that you contact your mobile provider.
