Nokia 206 no Whats app!

Bought the single sim version in UK today and it has no whats app! It is locked to 02 network could this be why?

 

By doing *#0000# it brings up the following

 

206.1

V03.58

RM-873

 

Does this version now have/support whats app? I thought only dual sims didnt have it?!

The phone supports WhatsApp. If it didn't came pre-installed on your phone, just head over to the following link and download it from there.

The phone doesnt seem to allow use of multiple apps. Not even fb can be remained open in the background.

 

The scroll speed is also slow i.e. when going through contacts etc.

 

How do you increase this?

Generally speaking background execution on Nokia Asha phones is possible only for a few special apps, like the preinstalled Music player, Whatsapp..

 

oh, and Whatsapp is currently indeed only available for the single-SIM version of the device. Same for all device models. Possibility to have it working on dual-SIM devices is being investigated.

Downloaded whats app and when searching for a contact it seems to be too slow

 

Do you know how I can unlock the 206? It is currently locked to 02?

Re: Nokia 206 no Whats app!

If you scroll with the down/up key pressed, it will be slower and if you keep tapping the key, it will scroll faster.
Other than that, its how the phone functions. You can't modify the speed. But yeah keeping lesser contacts can help. Also remember to keep atleast 2-3MB of phone memory free at all times.

About Unlocking, that can only be done by O2. You need to ask them for the unlock code.

Re: Nokia 206 no Whats app!

Not neccessarily other places i.e. phone shops unlock calculators so on can do the job as well.

I have order an 8gb SD card. Will that help or do you mean of the phone memory it needs to be 2.3mb?

I wouldve thought it goes faster pressing it?

And the search function isnt that good as well. When you search for a name, if there is a number infront of the name then it wont pick it up. The e52 did pick it up.

Some things are lacking as usual with Nokia but they included threaded convos funnily enough lol yet no multiple apps!

Re: Nokia 206 no Whats app!

I have noticed something quiety freaky dunno if anyone else has?

 

 

When I got it yesterday it had 3 bars of battery I didnt bother charging it. Then it dropped 2 bars last night and I charged it and it got back to 3 bars. Stopped charging used it - it went to 2 bars. After using it it went back to 3 bars itself :smileyfrustrated:

 

Today it was on 2 bars when I turned it on again. After a while it has gone upto 3 bars!

 

Lol strange...
